English: Alex Jones outside Bilderberg meeting...

From his disruption of a peaceful and co-operative 2010 Austin, Texas pro-gun rally, Alex Jones declared to Catherine Bleish (at 3:28): “I’ll be here in 20 years.”

If Alex Jones is such a threat to the New World Order, how can he be so sure he’ll be around for any length of time?

Is it hubristic arrogance, or does he know something we don’t?

Governor Rick Perry of Texas speaking at the R...

John Coleman, appearing on Red Ice Radio on September 26, 2011, diagnosed many of the problems facing the United States, yet fell into the establishment’s clutches by coming out in support of Texas Governor Rick Perry for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 (starting at 16:38).

Subsequent to the interview, Perry made a total fool of himself, much to the chagrin of his establishment promoters, who had already invited him to attend Bilderberg meetings, as he himself later admitted.

But unlike past attendees Bill Clinton and Tony Blair who were invited before their rise to power, Perry flopped.

As if being an attendee of the annual Bilderberg conference wasn’t enough of a giveaway that Perry is an establishment candidate, there was the video of a Bank of America lobbyist telling Perry they would help him out.

The host expressed surprise at Coleman’s claim, but moved on, since there’s no point in putting the guest in a defensive position in stating an opinion when the rest of his points seemed good.

To me, this shows how too many seemingly well-meaning patriots continue to let themselves be duped into voting for a candidate of the establishment parties, thinking that they will somehow be different, as if the bi-partisan examples of “compassionate conservative” George W. Bush and “hope and change” Barack Obama weren’t enough for them by now.

Income tax

Some politicians talk about a flat income tax (U.S. Republican presidential candidate Steve Forbes in 1996 and 2000), and some claim to have implemented such a tax (the Canadian province of Alberta in 2001).

Nearly all, if not all, so-called flat income taxes proposed by politicians and implemented by various states, are not flat.

They say it’s a flat tax because it only has one tax rate, but that’s not true. In 2011, Alberta has a basic personal income tax exemption of $16,977 CAD.

Therefore, Alberta has two tax rates. 0% if you make between $0 and $16,977, and 10% on whatever you make in excess of that.

The only truly flat personal income taxes are to be found wherever there are no personal income taxes, such as Texas, Florida and the state of Washington.

Ron Paul, member of the United States House of...

With Congressman Ron Paul’s recent announcement of the formation of his 2012 presidential exploratory committee, my question is, will he throw 9/11 Truth under the bus again, as he did in 2008?

Regular readers to this site will know that when I use such strong language, I don’t use it lightly.

Here’s why I argue he did just that in 2008.

From the 2008 South Carolina Republican primary debate, in response to a question about whether he would disavow the views of 9/11 Truthers, he said:

I don’t endorse anything they say.

Really, Ron? You didn’t endorse them pointing out Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta’s testimony to the 9/11 Commission, which contradicted Vice-President Dick Cheney’s timeline about when he arrived in the bunker by about half an hour?

Is Dick Cheney a reliable source, when he claimed the office of Vice-President isn’t part of the executive branch of government, despite the very Constitution he swore an oath to uphold making the Vice-President first in the line of secession if the President dies or is deemed disabled?

Or the fact that a third steel building fell that day, which wasn’t hit by a plane, unlike the other two, and that the BBC reported it had fallen while it was still clearly standing in the background as the reporter made that false report?

Or at the time, the hundreds of professional architects and engineers with Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, now nearly 1500 of them, who continue to question the official story of 9/11?

While he was one of the few members of Congress who courageously voted against authorization for the war in Afghanistan, and the 2003 Iraq War, would the American people have supported those wars without the events of 9/11? What about the clearly unconstitutional USA PATRIOT ACT?

Time will tell if Ron Paul really meant what he said in 2008, and whether he’ll throw 9/11 Truth under the bus yet again, or whether he’ll separate facts from conclusions, and get to the very root of the justification for so many of the things he opposes.
