Ron Paul: State of the Republic Address. ‘We Are Rapidly Moving Toward a Dangerous Time In Our History!’

  • Excerpt:
      
    “We are rapidly moving toward a dangerous time in our history. Society as we know it is vulnerable to political and social unrest. This impending crisis comes as a consequence of our flawed foreign and domestic economic policies, a silly notion about money, ignorance about central banking, ignoring the onerous power and mischief of out of control intelligence agencies, our unsustainable welfare state and a willingness to sacrifice privacy and civil liberties in an attempt to achieve safety and security from an inept government.”
     
    “Dangerous times indeed.”
     
    “The only way that we can prevent blood from running in the streets is to offer a better idea of the proper role of government in a society that desires, first and foremost, liberty.”

As US Prepares Long-term Occupation, Haiti’s Quake Victims Still Without Aid! Latin American Leaders Say US Occupying Haiti ! Haiti Is Full Of Oil And Gold ! Haiti’s Oil Reserves Far Larger Than Venezuela’s: An Olympic Pool Compared To a Glass of Water!

  • The number of troops deployed, or in the process of being deployed into Haiti, is 33,000. Can we call this a military invasion now? Do we really believe that the American MIC (Military Industrial Complex) is in Haiti for the good of the Haitian people? Would it surprise you if the CIA pays money to militias to create chaos and violence so that the snakes in DC can justify the military operation. Are Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan better or worse after military invasion? Why didn’t the chaos and violence end? It will not end because the people behind the invasion are creating the chaos and violence so that they can continue to make money from it!
     
    As US Prepares Long-term Occupation, Haiti’s Quake Victims Still Without Aid
    With the US military “surge” into Haiti ……. a US official indicated that Washington is preparing for a protracted occupation of the impoverished and earthquake-devastated Caribbean nation. “We are there for the long term, this is not something that will be resolved quickly and easily,” said Ambassador Alejandro Wolff, the US deputy permanent representative to the United Nations, on Haiti following a meeting on aid to the battered country.
     
    In addition to the US, representatives from Brazil, Canada, France, Haiti and Uruguay participated in the discussions. Canada and France are major donors to Haiti, while Brazil and Uruguay each have over 1,000 troops participating in the United Nations peace-keeping mission, which constituted the main occupying force before the earthquake.
     
    Speaking earlier in the UN, Wolff denounced the governments of Nicaragua, Bolivia and Venezuela for accusing Washington of exploiting the tragedy in Haiti to impose a military occupation of the country. He charged the three Latin American governments with attempting “to politicize the matter with ill informed tendentious statements” and having “ridiculously alleged conspiracy and occupation.”
     
    In Haiti itself, however, anger and protests are building over the US militarization of the response to a disaster that has claimed an estimated 200,000 lives, while leaving another quarter of a million injured and millions homeless. Humanitarian aid and medical teams have accused the US military—which has asserted unilateral control over the country’s airport and port facilities—of making the deployment of troops and the evacuation of US citizens from Haiti its first priorities. The delivery of desperately needed medical supplies and equipment were relegated to second place. Medical relief agencies have warned that tens of thousands more are dying from injuries sustained in the earthquake because of the lack of basic supplies and medicines.
     
    While aid has now reportedly begun flowing into the country, fully 11 days after the earthquake, it is reportedly still not reaching those who desperately need it.
     
    Latin American leaders say US occupying Haiti
    Venezuela, Bolivia and Nicaragua say the US is using the international relief operation in Haiti as a cover-up for a military takeover. Bolivian President Evo Morales said that he will request an emergency UN meeting to reject what he calls the US military occupation of Haiti.
    “It’s not right that the United States should use this natural disaster to invade and militarily occupy Haiti,” Morales told a press conference on Wednesday.
     
    “If you have all these problems with the injured and the dead from the earthquake, you have to go there to save lives, and you don’t do that from a military standpoint,” he added. An outspoken critic of US policies, Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez also had accused Washington of occupying Haiti “under the guise of the natural disaster.” Nicaragua also has taken a similar stance toward US with respect to the situation in Haiti. 

     
    Flashback 2007: Haiti’s future glitters with gold
    For 27 years, Laskowski has been searching for gold, from Mongolia to the Amazon. Now, the geologist says, he may have hit pay dirt in the hills above the town of La Miel in northeastern Haiti.
     
    But Laskowski’s optimism belies a minefield of potential problems awaiting his Vancouver-based company, Eurasian Minerals. Although Canadian mining companies weather stormy political climates around the world, they have largely stayed clear of crisis-torn Haiti.
       …..
    In late May, Eurasian Minerals announced the gold content found in several trenches cut into the hillsides here, driving its stock price up 40 per cent on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Laskowski says the company hopes to find billions of dollars worth of gold in the hills above La Miel, which is just a few kilometres from the border with the Dominican Republic.
       ….
    A United Nations study in the 1970s indicated Haiti could be littered with gold and copper deposits. But political violence and recurring coups have kept investors away. “Haiti’s logical,” says Alex Turkeltaub, managing director of Frontier Strategy Group, a consulting firm that advises mining companies. “The assumption of most mining executives is that its proximity to the United States and its relatively small size mean that they will have a lot of leverage as large players in a small economy, and that the Americans will always be there to protect against complete disaster.”
     
    Turkeltaub predicts “a stampede into Haiti” if the existence of large gold deposits can be proved. Another Canadian-backed company recently resumed prospecting in Haiti after abandoning its claims a decade ago. Steve Lachapelle – a Quebec lawyer who is now chair of the board of the company, called St. Genevieve Haiti – says employees were threatened at gunpoint by partisans of ex-president Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

     
    Flashback 2008: Haiti is full of oil say Daniel and Ginette Mathurin (Google Translation)
    Scientists Daniel and Ginette Mathurin indicate that under Haitian soil is rich in oil and fuel fossible which were collected by Haitian and foreign experts. “We have identified 20 sites Oil, launches Daniel Mathurin stating that 5 of them are considered very important by practitioners and policies.
     
    The Central Plateau, including the region of Thomond, the plain of the cul-de-sac and the bay of Port-au-Prince are filled with oil, he said, adding that Haiti’s oil reserves are larger than those of Venezuela . An Olympic pool compared to a glass of water that is the comparison to show the importance of oil Haitian compared to those of Venezuela, “he explains.
     
    Venezuela is one of the world’s largest producers of oil. Daniel Mathurin reveals that investigations of several previous governments have allowed to verify the existence of these large deposits of oil. It reminds a document of Lavalas party to power in 2004, had specified the number of sites in Haiti hydrocarbons.
      
    According to Daniel et Ginette Mathurin, the lake region, with cities like Thomazeau and Cornillon, contains large deposits of oil.

Blair Government Was Advised: Iraq War Illegal!

  • Over 1 million Iraqi civilians have lost their lives. The country was bombed to a pulp and is still in chaos. This war is immoral, illegal and genocidal. Bush and Cheney were  Texas oil men. This war is for the profit of Big Oil and for the profit of the military industrial complex. It is a war for the conquest of the entire Persian Gulf oil countries.
     
  • The war will never end because the Illuminati PTB wants endless wars. Their main aim is to steal money from the sheeple via the military industrial complex while at the same time strengthening the MIC which they own. The sheeple are dumb and dispensable as far as they are concerned. The Mail UK reports:
      
    Explosive evidence showing the Government was ‘clearly advised’ the Iraq war was illegal will be disclosed at the inquiry into the conflict this week, it was revealed today. Sir Michael Wood, who was the Foreign Office’s chief legal adviser, is expected to reveal he believed the war was unlawful without a second United Nations resolution. 
     
    Elizabeth Wilmshurst, a senior FCO lawyer who quit in protest at the invasion, will also say she was not ‘a voice in the wilderness’ in having doubts about its legality. She is expected to claim Sir Michael told then attorney general Lord Goldsmith of his reservations days before the invasion began, according to reports.
     
    The new claims are due to emerge just days before Tony Blair gives evidence to the panel, in what is set to be one of the most gruelling public ordeals of his career.

United Nations Caught Lying Again On Climate Claims ! Climate Change Chief Says Sorry For Hot Air Claim Over Melting Glaciers!

  • The lying weasels are caught again. Man made global warming is a lie. This time round, these globalists are not going to get away with it.
     
    United Nations caught out again on climate claims
    THE UN climate science panel faces new controversy for wrongly linking global warming to a rise in natural disasters such as hurricanes and floods. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change based the claims on an unpublished report that had not been subjected to routine scientific scrutiny – and ignored warnings from scientific advisers. The report’s author later withdrew the claim because the evidence was too weak.
     
    The link was central to demands at last month’s Copenhagen climate summit by African nations for compensation of $US100 billion from the rich nations. However, the IPCC knew in 2008 that the link could not be proved but did not alert world leaders, who have used weather extremes to bolster the case for action on climate change.
      ….
    The IPCC has now been forced to reassess its report linking extreme weather to climate change. The UN body’s about-face comes less than a week after it was forced to retract claims that the Himalayan glaciers would be largely melted by 2035. The claim was sourced to an environmental group’s report of an interview in New Scientist magazine.
     
    The Indian glaciologist who made the quote said a week ago the claim was “speculation” and had not been used in a peer-reviewed scientific paper. It also comes as the British parliament launches an inquiry into leaked emails from the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit that raised questions about the legitimacy of some data published by the IPCC about global warming.
     
    The latest controversy goes back to the IPCC’s benchmark 2007 report on climate change, which warned that the world had “suffered rapidly rising costs due to extreme weather-related events since the 1970s”. It suggested part of the increase was because of global warming. However, the scientific paper on which the IPCC based its claim had not been peer reviewed, nor published, by the time the climate body issued its report. When the paper was published, in 2008, it had a new caveat. It said: “We find insufficient evidence to claim a statistical relationship between global temperature increase and catastrophic losses.”
     
    The IPCC failed to issue a clarification before the Copenhagen climate summit last month. Two scientific reviewers who checked drafts of the IPCC report urged greater caution in proposing a link between climate change and disaster impacts, but were ignored.

     
    Climate change chief says sorry for hot air claim over melting glaciers
    The head of the UN’s climate change body has been forced to make a humiliating apology over claims the Himalayan glaciers could vanish within 25 years. Last week it emerged there was no evidence for the warning from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
     
    After a global outcry, Dr Rajendra Pachauri  –  chairman of the IPCC  –  has issued an unprecedented apology. The alarmist claim appeared two years ago in an influential report. At the time the IPCC insisted the document contained the latest and most detailed evidence yet of the risks of man-made climate change. Dr Pachauri even dismissed the report’s detractors for using ‘voodoo science’.
     
    But in fact the claim was originally made by scientist Syed Hasnain, from Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi, who has since admitted the comment was ‘pure speculation’. Dr Pachauri said in a statement: ‘In drafting the paragraph in question, the clear and well-established standards of evidence, required by the IPCC procedures, were not applied properly.
     
    ‘The chair, vice-chairs, and co-chairs of the IPCC regret the poor application of well-established IPCC procedures in this instance.’ The apology is a major blow to the IPCC which was set up to provide political leaders with clear, independent advice on climate change. It follows the ‘Climategate’ email row in which scientists at the University of East Anglia appeared to have manipulated data to strengthen the case for man-made climate change.
