Secrets of the universe and government conspiracies found in children’s movies!!!!



Commenter “Rachel Masters” dared to post this yesterday in response to my review of Horton Hears a Who!:

I will tell you exactly what this movie is about, but you have to have a very open mind... Watch the very beginning of the movie when the gum ball seed falls and makes it's way toward the flower...if you know this Earth's true history, that'll make sense to you. Ever heard of Nibiru?

(more below the ad... scroll down...)

Then, look at the struggle of discovering other worlds and...inhabitants of those worlds and making 'Contact' (another movie)...

And then the struggle of telling the masses vs keeping it to yourself...look at JFK and listen to ALL his speeches, including the one about secret societies, aliens and such (youtube). They even allude to these things in the movie itself, Horton pretending to be JFK and also mentioning, mockingly and jokingly, to begin a secret society.
Oddly enough, children's movies reveal the most truth when you know the truth and accept it;)
(I still enjoy this movie, and am also a Christian)

JFK WAS TRYING TO TELL US ABOUT NIBIRU AND NO ONE LISTENED!!!! So now it’s up to Jim Carrey as a cartoon elephant to save us all! Nibiru caused the Great Flood of the Bible, and it’s where giants where from, and angels. And it’s coming back in 2012!!! PREPARE YOUR FAMILY FOR SURVIVAL. JESUS IS COMING BACK WITH NIBIRU!

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! THE UN AND BARACK OBAMA AND CUBAN COMMUNISTS ARE PREPARING A NEW WORLD ORDER!!! Probably to save us all from Niburi!! But it’s being kept a secret to prevent global panic!

I received this email from “Rick” yesterday -- ON THE SAME DAY THAT RACHEL MASTERS POSTED HER COMMENT -- THINK ABOUT IT!!! About my review of Barnyard:

I was stunned by the whole bizarre mess of a movie. I don't know if you mentioned the cow (bull?) yelling out "It's A New World Order" after scaring the crap out of the nasty human. I almost fell off my chair. The udder thing was a complete mystery to me until my cousin explained the NWO's objective of blurring the lines between genders. This director is a nothing but a shill for the monsters pushing for One World Government. Ironically up until two years ago when I finally clued into the truth about 9/11 and then the NWO etc, the reference would have meant nothing to me.

The mystery is being revealed, people! THE SECRETS ARE COMING OUT! All the plans for planetary destruction and the return of Jesus and the New World Order are there IF YOU KNOW WHERE TO LOOK!!!

DO NOT let the government confiscate your copies of Looney Tunes Golden Age Collection Volume 6! It contains covert instructions on what to tell the driver of the Federal bus when it comes to take you to the reeducation camps so you get sent to the “right” one!!!

Dragon-king of the outlier events

This is a black swan.

This is a dragon-king.

Which are you more terrified of?

In a new paper, author and physics professor Didier Sornette, presents the concept of “dragon-kings” — outlier events that exist within conventional power law distributions.

Power law distributions are kind of like bell-curve distributions, but their tails (where ‘extreme’ events occur) are much longer, so that extreme events are considered rather more frequent. Here for instance is a power law distribution, from Sornette’s paper, of the Dow Jones Industrial Average:

Power law distribution of DJIA from Sornette paper

Sornette’s main assertion, then, is that while black swans, the outliers made famous by Nassim Nicholas Taleb, are generally considered unexpected since they are simply bigger than other events in the distribution, dragon-king events are a rather different beast altogether. Here’s his comment:

If events of large impacts are part of a population described by a power law distribution, the common wisdom is that there is no way to predict them because nothing distinguish them from their small siblings: their great sizes and impacts come out as surprises, beyond the realm of normal expectations. This is the view expounded for instance by Bak and co-workers in their formulation of the concept of self-organized criticality [14,15]. This is also the concept espoused by the “Black Swan Theory” [16], which views high-impact rare events as unpredictable . . .

The following examples suggest that, in a significant number of complex systems, extreme events are even “wilder” than predicted by the extrapolation of the power law distributions in their tail.
Below, we document evidence for what can be termed genuine “outliers” or even better “kings” [17] or “dragons.”

On the financial side, dragon-kings work something like this, according to Sornette:
Fig.7 [of the DJIA above] shows the survival distribution of positive (continuous line) and negative daily returns (dotted line) of the Dow Jones Industrial Average index over the time interval from May 27, 1896 to May 31, 2000 [7]. No dragon-king is apparent and it seems that the distribution of large losses and large gains are pure asymptotic power laws [28].

But this is missing the forest for the tree! Our claim is that financial returns defined at fixed time scales, say at the hourly, daily, weekly or monthly time scales, are revealing only a part of the variability of financial time series, while a major risk component is gravely missing.

Since we are interested in characterizing the statistics of extreme events, to illustrate our claim, consider the simplified textbook example of a crash that occurs over a period of three days, as a sequence of three successive drops of 10% each summing up to a total loss of 30%. Now, a 10% market drop, that occurs over one day, can be seen in the data of the Nasdaq composite index to happen on average once every four years. Since there are approximately 250 trading days in a year, a 10% market drop is thus a 10-3 probability event. What is the probability for observing three such drops in a row? The answer is (10-3)3=10-9. Such one-in-one-billion event has a recurrence time of roughly 4 million years! Thus, it should never be observed in our short available time series. However, many crashes of such sizes or larger have occurred in the last decades all over the world.

What is wrong with the reasoning leading to the exceedingly small 10-9 probability for such a crash? It is the assumption of independence between the three losses! In contrast, our claim is that financial crashes are transient bursts of dependence between successive large losses. As such, they are missed by the standard one-point statistics consisting in decomposing the runs of losses into elementary daily returns. With some exaggeration to emphasize my message, I would say that by cutting the mammoth in pieces, we only observe mice.

We thus propose to analyze drawdowns (and their symmetrical drawups), because they are better adapted to capture the risk perception of investors, and therefore better reflect the realized market risks. Indeed, we demonstrate below that the distributions of drawdowns diagnose efficiently financial crashes, which are seen as dragon-kings, i.e., special events associated with specific bubble regimes that precede them.

Well, it sounds like a useful — albeit scary — distinction.

This is disturbing! Several nations of Foreign troops on our soil, RIGHT NOW!

Australian troops on ground in CA under U.N. Flag; British troops on ground in Carolinas under U.N. Flag; German troops in Michigan, trying to pick a fight with Michigan Militia. [We believe it is likely near Alpena which has a closed Air Force Base, small Regional airport and was recently mentioned in regards to Michigan Militia.

Considering there are now foreign soldiers on our soil, this is ILLEGAL, and opening up to be as unconstitutional as possible. This is just once small incident that was picked up. They are here!

Government of Canada Participates in Major Security Exercise

SYS-CON Media (press release) - ‎Jul 27, 2009‎
By Security News Desk Canadian federal officials will participate in a large scale security exercise known as National Level Exercise 09 (NLE 09), ...

NLE 09 Terror Plot Foiled?

NLE 09 drills are focusing on a terrorist attack that happens overseas and the US tries to lock down the country so the attacks dont spread here...coincidence that they just busted people planning to attack overseas? ... strange to me.

Massive US Terrorism Simulation Involving Foreign Agencies Begins Today

Mainstream media AWOL again as huge drill begins nationwide

Steve Watson
Monday, July 27, 2009

A huge simulation coordinated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has begun today with no mainstream media coverage at all.

The security exercise known as National Level Exercise 09 (NLE 09) will last for five days and will involve foreign security officials working in conjunction with the US military, as well as Federal, State, Local Tribal and Private Sector representatives.

According to a factsheet in the recesses of the FEMA website, the agency will host National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE 09) on July 27 through July 31, 2009:

“NLE 09 will be the first major exercise conducted by the United States government that will focus exclusively on terrorism prevention and protection, as opposed to incident response and recovery,” the factsheet states. It is designated as a Tier I National Level Exercise, or TOPOFF, which are exercises conducted annually in accordance with the National Exercise Program (NEP), “which serves as the nation’s overarching exercise program for planning, organizing, conducting and evaluating national level exercises,” according to FEMA.

NLE 09 “will focus on intelligence and information sharing among intelligence and law enforcement communities, and between international, federal, regional, state, tribal, local and private sector participants”.

The FEMA information sheet states that the exercise involves a scenario that begins “in the aftermath of a notional terrorist event outside the United States, and exercise play will center on preventing subsequent efforts by the terrorists to enter the United States and carry out additional attacks. This scenario enables participating senior officials to focus on issues related to preventing terrorist events domestically and protecting U.S. critical infrastructure.”

The exercise will also include agencies in Britain, Mexico, Canada and Australia, the Department of Homeland Security has said. The Navajo Nation will also participate.

“This year the United States welcomes the participation of Australia, Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom in NLE 09.” The FEMA factsheet does not explain why the participation of foreign officials is necessary, nor does it elaborate on the roles they will play.

Canadian federal involvement was today confirmed in a press release attributed to “Public Safety Canada”. The Press release also noted the involvement of the United Kingdom, Australia and Mexico.

An independent reporter from Oklahoma (or FEMA region VI) was informed that NLE 09 is not “media friendly” because it largely involves people looking at computer screens in Oklahoma City and Tulsa.

After asking if it would be possible to sit in on the exercise, Andrew W. Griffin
of Red Dirt Report
was told by Brook Arbeitman, the public information officer for the Oklahoma Office of Homeland Security, that this was not possible and that the exercise is mostly decompartmentalized.

Arbeitman, interestingly enough, could not answer some more in-depth questions about NLE 09 because she is a role player in the exercise, playing – you guessed it – a public information officer for Oklahoma Office of Homeland Security and as a result “is not privy” to some of the specifics.

“We will be playing along with everybody to whatever extent the exercise” proceeds, Arbeitman said.

According to FEMA, the Departments of Homeland Security, Defense, Justice, and State, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and a broad spectrum of component agencies, offices and commands will all participate in the exercise.

NLE 09 activities will take place at command posts, emergency operation centers, intelligence centers and field locations throughout the country, including federal headquarters facilities in the Washington, D.C. area as well as facilities in Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and California.

In our previous story on NLE 09, we noted that this exercise is a continuation of previous simulations under FEMA and the DHS that have involved the rounding-up and internment of American citizens labeled as “suspected terrorists”.

Under REX 84 and other operations, FEMA, in association with 34 other federal civil departments and agencies, has consistently trained to detain large numbers of Americans.

We also noted that several recently leaked Department of Homeland Security, FBI, and local law enforcement documents have stated that the focus of security operations should be “rightwing extremists” who support the Second Amendment and states’ rights and oppose abortion and open borders.

“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people
of good conscience to remain silent.”

Thomas Jefferson


National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE 09) will be the largest terror drill yet conducted under the Obama administration. Briefly stated, NLE 09 will place thousands of US and foreign troops across the nation, with a scripted mission to prevent a terror attack in the U.S. in the wake of a terrorist attack abroad. While the official version of events to come is innocuous, public affairs and public information officials with FEMA, Homeland Security and the military have refused to answer reporters’ questions, or even to return calls. This stonewalling is an indicator of an exercise that may be a clever way of pre-positioning of coercive power to implement martial law, then arrest and incarcerate political dissidents:

National Level Exercises 2009 (NLE 09),
FEMA Press Release, 7/24/2009,

After the departure of George W. Bush, we hoped that Barack Hussein Obama would dismantle the post-9/11 Homeland Regime in the United States and the Global War on Terror abroad. To our dismay, though, 44 seems very much like 43 in his domestic secrecy and foreign bellicosity. It has been a case of “meet the new boss, same as the old boss.” Most dismaying of all has been Obama’s unwillingness to re-examine 9/11.
The Bush administration never wanted to investigate 9/11. The 9/11 Commissioners admitted that their proceedings had been sabotaged and intimidated by the Bush White House. Hundreds of military officers, among them the former head of Army Intelligence, Major General Albert Stubblebine, have called 9/11 “an inside job.” If so, it would hardly be a novelty. Operation Northwoods, drawn up by the Joint Chiefs of Staff in 1962, was designed to provoke the American people into a war with Castro’s Cuba:
“Code named Operation Northwoods, the plans reportedly included the possible assassination of Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas, hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship, and even orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S. cities.” U.S. Military Wanted to Provoke War with Cuba, ABC News, 5/1/01, http://abcnews.go.com/US/story?id=92662&page=1
Given the willingness of the U.S. government to carry out “false flag” attacks against U.S. citizens, no one should be surprised that a growing number of us believe the 9/11 attacks were designed and carried out by U.S. planners to provoke the American people into Mideast wars. If it were otherwise, the government would conduct a thorough investigation of 9/11 without obstruction and intimidation.
Since Obama will not look into 9/11, he must contend with a country that will do so without him. As with the former USSR, the current USA is discovering that its government is criminal, and can’t continue as it is without another 9/11-style false flag attack. Accordingly, a growing number of false flag Internet researchers have begun to alert the public to this set-up “9/11-2B,” especially before terror exercises like NLE 09.
Major terror exercises were ongoing when the 9/11/2001 U.S. attacks and the 7/7/2005 U.K. attacks occurred. The damning truth is that both nations’ terror exercises were scripted for the very events that occurred. They weren’t terror exercises; they were terror operations disguised as exercises.


For an excellent introduction to the concept and practice of false flag operations, readers should refer to Wednesday’s edition of The Real Deal radio show, hosted by Dr. James Fetzer, renowned academic and founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth. The interview is available in both YouTube and transcript:

The Real Deal on NLE 09,
The Real Deal, 7/22/2009,

As a former Marine Corps officer himself, Fetzer conducts an informed interview with former Marine Corps officer, Major William B. Fox, in the first hour. Fox, a Harvard Business School graduate and publisher of America First Books, offers deep insights into the covert culture that promotes false flag terrorism.
In the second hour, Fetzer follows up with retired Sergeant First Class Donald Buswell, a former Army Intelligence SNCO. Buswell achieved national prominence in 2006 by candidly expressing his doubts about the official 9/11 story to the Army, which did all it could to silence him. The decorated Iraq war veteran shares memorable anecdotes about his journey and discoveries.
Major Fox is the Ghost Troop executive officer, and SFC Buswell is its first sergeant. Together with them, we have been identifying Chicago, Houston and Portland as primary, secondary and tertiary false flag targets for years now. During the Bush years, Houston was the top target. Now that Obama is in power, Chicago is. During the summer/fall of 2007, Portland was target number one. Because New York and Washington, D.C. were the 9/11 targets, they are always available. Recent events have made us think that they could be in danger now.


Below, we provide a synopsis and three articles for each of the top five false flag terror targets, starting with the most recent article. Each of the five targets has had at least one disturbing article in the last week.
Chicago is the easiest city in America for Obama to set up. He was last in town on Thursday, at a private dinner with powerful people. Much of his administration has been built out of Chicago insiders, the most conspicuous of them being Rahm Emanuel, known as a vicious Machiavelli even by his friends. There were unsettling and unannounced exercises last week, making residents uneasy. Sears Tower was just renamed Willis Tower, in honor of the insurance company that served “Lucky” Larry Silverstein in the 9/11-WTC affair. Silverstein’s real estate partners bought the Sears Tower on 3/11/2009, the anniversary of the Madrid bombings. Occult numerology runs through the place: its ZIP code is 60606 (666), and like the Twin Towers it has 110 (11) stories. We consider it to be the most dangerous place in America.

New York is getting the media work up with a Wednesday report of an Al Qaeda plot against it. A month ago the government tried out some high-tech weaponry in its sky, then a few days later CNN lead the charge to persuade the people that they had just seen “mammatus” clouds, Latin lingo for “titty” clouds. The wise guys of the Big Apple are being coached to laugh at impending doom. Not one in a thousand has actually referred to the library or Internet to discover that mammatus clouds are a new, bogus, cover-up concept, with threadbare and contrived “research” to sell them to the masses. New Yorkers never got a decent explanation of why Air Force One terrified them in late April. Maybe it was a signal for 9/11-2B.

Houston has had more inexplicable terror-type events than any other city in the U.S. since 9/11. Ghost Troop predicted most of them, leading The Lone Star Iconoclast to publish an editorial on 3/3/2008, calling for a congressional investigation of our uncanny performance. Texas City, a petrochemical city just south of Houston, has been the most affected place of all. Friday it had a petrochemical emergency, which was blamed on freak lightning a first-time reason, even to those who have lived there for decades. Military aircraft have been pestering the petrochemical district, and Homeland Security director Bruce Clawson refuses to answer questions about them, muttering that the public should simply trust its officials.

Portland came close to a terror attack on October 18, 2007 the last day of TOPOFF-4, an exercise very much like NLE 09 in its scope. The day started out with a Ghost Troop alert to Southeast Texas, followed by a Dow Chemical explosion in Southeast Texas a few hours late . . . followed by the first assassination attempt against Benazir Bhutto . . . followed by a bomb scare and the closure of downtown Portland while Michael Chertoff was close by. It was a three-in-one false flag day. We were hounded throughout our mission to protect Portland by COINTELPRO operators, pseudonymic sorts like “Col. Jenny Sparks” and “Arabesque.” We had a U.S. Army Signal Corps propagandist “RTO Trainer” (an anagram for “anti-terror”) attacking us, too. They all agreed that we were anti-Semitic for questioning Israeli motives. Last month FEMA admitted that Israel had taken part in TOPOFF-4. If their participation was on the level, why was it kept secret?

On that very day, the Air Guard general in charge of D.C. Air defenses on 9/11 died in a freak D.C. train derailment. On June 10 NORAD conducted mid-day exercises in downtown Washington D.C. The Holocaust Museum shootings occurred in the middle of those exercises. CNN slammed Ghost Troop for asking questions about what happened.

Vibrant Response” Exercise to Fall on Heels of NLE 09

(Army News Service – Grafton Pritchartt)

Consequence-management response forces, or CCMRF, are staging a training exercise beginning July 31 to prepare for potential domestic disasters capable of injuring or killing several thousand civilians.

The “Vibrant Response” exercise will be conducted by the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and High-Yield Explosive, or CBRNE Joint Response Force, through Aug. 14.

“It’s going to be extremely complex and require a tremendous amount of coordination with other agencies and locals at various levels,” said Maj. Gen. John Basilica, commander of Operational Command Post 1, U.S. Army North. “It is all designed to test and challenge the headquarters and command in control elements to make sure they can work together to respond quickly, because speed is the most important piece of this.”

The service members will be given a situation in which they will be testing communication capabilities and reactions. Participants will be role-playing as certain pubic figures, like mayor and governor, in one scenario.

CBRNE is made of three divisions, 9.1, 10.1 and 10.2; 10.1 and 10.2 are being trained to be combat-ready by Oct. 1. Basilica heads up the 10.2 task force, which consists of reserve-component units.

The exercise will involve about 400 to 500 people at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. The two divisions will each train one week, in succession with one another. Each CCMRF unit contains three task forces — medical, operations and aviation, in addition to smaller elements with specific technical expertise. The Operation Task Force 2/18 MEB from South Carolina, Medical Task Force 3/30 MEB from Illinois, and Aviation Task Force 11 from Kentucky will all participate in the exercise.

Response force a 'serious capability' in a crisis

“We don’t get that many opportunities to provide these specific headquarters together and train in a command-post type exercise,” Basilica said.

The CBRNE was transferred to U.S. Northern Command’s Joint Task Force Civil Support in October 2002. JTF-CS provides support from active, Guard and Reserve members, and civilians, who are all commanded by a National Guard general officer.

CBRNE is designed to work with federal agencies like the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Center for Disease Control, to aid, restore and prevent casualties in instances of major disaster.

The CCRMF is only used after all local, state and federal resources have been exhausted, Basilica and Collins said.

“We hope to God that there are no terrorist attacks or no major industrial accident in the U.S. where the city, state or federal government might ask for additional capabilities. We hope that does not happen, but if it does, I think it’s a great story for the nation that you have these multiple CCMRF forces that would be trained and ready to step in and assist the states if they ask for extra help,” Collins said.

NLE 09 in Florida: Military Drone or Dragonfly Captured on Video?

I came across a YouTube member that has participated in a nationwide "Operation Ovewatch," which reports on unusual activity that is/may be related to the NLE 09 military exercises.

One YouTube member posted a video of a FEMA exercise in his neighborhood. He reported of FEMA agents mixing a strange-smelling formula and captured "silent airplanes" on video.

None of this struck me, until another individual pointed out that a military drone or dragonfly was captured on video at the 4:48 time mark. I Googled a few photos of dragonflys and they all seem to have very narrow bodies.

The "dragonfly/drone" captured on the YouTube video is quite broad at the base.

Anybody care to provide some input.

DHS launches YouTube channel


The Department of Homeland Security has launched the DHS YouTube Channel and announced the redesign of www.DHS.gov — steps to enhance the Department’s Web presence, increase transparency and provide accurate, up-to-date information to the public.

“Social media plays an increasingly large role in our engagement with the public, especially in the event of an incident or disaster,” said DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano. “These new tools will facilitate an open dialogue about the Department’s security efforts across the nation and around the world.”

The YouTube Channel, found at www.youtube.com/ushomelandsecurity, will allow DHS to use video to highlight events, speeches, public service announcements and other related content. DHS’s emphasis on Web 2.0 tools such as YouTube allows the Department to provide greater transparency and access to the public and our state, local, territorial, tribal, private sector, and international partners.

Is the WHO/FEMA “counter terrorism” exercise a pretext to target the civilian population?

July 28, 2009 by birdflu666

The WHO and FEMA “couterterrorism” exercise currently being carried out by Canadian, UK, Australian, Mexican and German troops on American soil appears to be a pretext to place large numbers of foreign troops serving under the UN flag among the US civilian population, and also across a wide geographical area.

If these were conventional military exercises, there would be no contact between the UN troops and the local population, but counter terrorism or counter insurgency views the civilan population as a prime target.

Working on the assumpation there are hostile “terrorists” among the population and to maintain “peace”, troops are supposed to carry out mass screenings, interrogations, cordon off areas, restrict the movement of the inhabitants etc

It is clear that any such activities are going to be unwelcome to local civilian communities in the US going about their daily business, and the appearance of UN armoured cars, roadblocks and armed soldiers, at say, an intersection will generate an atmosphere of fear and uncertainty.

Under cover of these “exercises” and the resulting confusion about what is “real” and what is a “game”, Homeland Security and FEMA units could begin mass detentions and mass forced vaccinations.

Homeland Security has been gathering information on the US population for years and lists of targets have been compiled.

To resist this “take-over” will require the local law enforcement, the Sheriffs, and also the US military to stand together shoulder to shoulder with the community.

Only the local Sheriff backed up by his community and local military will have the authority to tell UN troops erecting cordons, roadblocks or check points and practising “interrogations” that the “exercises” are creating an unwelcome disturbance to the local community and is also illegal according to the local laws.

Only local law enforcement has the authority to lay down guidelines for what is acceptable conduct for such an UN exercise and demand that the UN troops adhere to those guidelines.

Since the UN troops are theoretically taking part in a training exercise, and should have no authority under the UN’s own constitution to start a conflict or viiolate human rights, the troops should back down.

Without the cover of the UN troops, Homeland Security and FEMA will find it much harder to carry out any illegal mass detentions. If they do, they must be held to account immediately, the units placed under arrest and the detainees freed.

Please talk to your local law enforcement, military and community and ask them for a show of solidarity in defending your community’s living space and civic rights from agencies, foreign or domestic, who seek to restrict to impose their will on American soil illegally. Draw the line in the sand and go after every small violation of that line to establish authority. Stand by your neighbour if they are in trouble and get others behind you. Do not let people be harassed or picked off one by one until your turn comes.

Also, consider that many of the UN troops on the ground will be ordinary soldiers who do not have an insight into the bigger picture. Their own countries are facing the same prospect as the people of the US of mass forced vaccinations and quarantines under WHO in response to a pandemic “threat”, dramatised and exaggerated out of all proportion by WHO. Give them the information to help them understand their lives are also threatened by the WHO global population reduction agenda.

July 27 Indianapolis, In
For the second time in 10 days, scores of protesters gathered outside of Senator Evan Bayh's offices in Indianapolis, Evansville, Ft.Wayne, Hammond, Jeffersonville, and South Bend. The message - No mandatory and costly government health care. A police escort guided the crowd during downtown Indy rush hour that culminated at the Circle with the Pledge of Allegiance, singing, and encouraging remarks from speaker Wes Robinson. The non-partisan rally was spearheaded by Tea Party activists and other overlapping groups. Protestors and passersby signed petitions to rescind the Congressional bill currently under consideration.

Evan Bayh's wife hauls in millions serving on corporate boards of companies including "nation's largest health insurance company"

Groups protest in front of Bayh's offices

Evan Bayh's conflict of interest is all too obvious

The Bayhs, stock buys and biases

For Evan Bayh, the Senator from Indiana who formed his own Blue Dog caucus in the Senate, health care isn't just a policy issue, it's personal. Not personal because of a health issue, but because his wife makes millions by sitting on corporate boards. And, some of those boards would be impacted by the health care reform legislation. Susan Bayh is one busy director:

As the debate over health-care reform intensifies, Bayh's wife is receiving lucrative payouts from some of the companies that could be most affected by that legislation.

Bayh contends the $2.1 million that his wife, Susan, earned from public health-care companies from 2006 to 2008 represents no conflict of interest. Questions persist, however, for at least two reasons. First, Evan Bayh has been unclear about his positions on many issues related to health-care reform. Second, there's the timing of Susan Bayh's rapid rise into corporate governance.

Senator Evan Bayh 2001 - 2006

Susan Bayh, who was a midlevel lawyer for the politically active Eli Lilly and Co. while her husband was governor of Indiana, did not serve on the board of a single public health-care company until it was clear her husband was about to ascend to the U.S. Senate. Only one month before Evan Bayh was elected to the Senate in a landslide vote, his wife was appointed to serve on the board of what would become the nation's largest health insurance company -- and arguably the company with the most at stake in the health-care reform debate.

Within a few years, numerous companies recruited her, and she eventually served on the boards of eight companies. At least one of them asked her to reduce the number of boards she served on, apparently because she was spread too thin to be effective.

Adding to speculation about a connection between her board memberships and her husband's office is Susan Bayh's unwillingness to discuss the matter, including for this story. She has declined several requests for comment on her corporate interests, making it difficult to tell where those interests end.
What a surprise that Susan Bayh won't answer questions.

Bayh is going to be one of the biggest obstacles to health care reform in the Senate. As Think Progress told us back in March, one of the reasons Bayh set up the Blue Dog Senate caucus to block Obama's agenda. It won't hurt his wife's business interests either. Funny thing, huh?

Here's something Evan and Susan Bayh should be proud of: Indiana has fallen into the bottom third of state rankings on health of its citizens. But, Evan and Susan have great health care coverage -- and lots and lots of money from the health care industry.

By Nicholas Ballasy, Video Reporter
(CNSNews.com) - During his speech at a National Press Club luncheon, House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers (D-Mich.), questioned the point of lawmakers reading the health care bill.

“I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill,’” said Conyers.

“What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?”

Pagan police get solstice leave


I don't want tree worshippers standing between me and chaos

Pagan police officers in some areas are being allowed to take as many as eight days leave a year for events such as the summer solstice and Halloween.

It comes after the Pagan Police Association was set up following discussions with Home Office officials.

Policy on police leave varies between forces in England and Wales.

Hertfordshire Police lets Pagan staff re-allocate the traditional bank holidays to meet their beliefs - it has also appointed two Pagan chaplains.

Pc Andy Pardy, a Pagan neighbourhood beat officer in Hemel Hempstead, Herts, was one of the officers involved in setting up the association.


He told Police Review: "Paganism is not the new age, tree-hugging fad that some people think it is.

"It is not the clandestine, horrible, evil thing that people think it is. A lot of people think it is about dancing naked around a fire.

"But the rituals involve chanting, music and meditation. For Pagans, the practices are seen to have the same power as prayer does for Christians."

Pc Pardy is allowed to take eight days per year for Pagan events - which form part of his annual leave.

Pagans worship nature and believe in many gods and their practices include witchcraft and druidism.

According to the Office for National Statistics there were 31,000 people practising Paganism in England and Wales in 2001.

Another officer, Pc Andy Hill, of Staffordshire Police, is a practising Wiccan - a kind of Pagan witch.

Healing spells

This is nothing to do with black magic or devil worshipping. Witchcraft is not the hocus pocus, puff of smoke, turning people into frogs stuff you see on television
PC Andy Hill

He has offered to use spells to give fellow officers a helping hand with promotion exams or to heal ill colleagues and is the founder of the Pagan Police Group UK, a website for Pagan police officers and their families.

He told Police Review: "Wiccan has always been a bit of a taboo religion, there are lots of misconceptions about it.

"This is nothing to do with black magic or devil worshipping. Witchcraft is not the hocus pocus, puff of smoke, turning people into frogs stuff you see on television. It is working with nature for good."

Superintendent Simon Hawkins, of Hertfordshire Police, said: "While balancing operational needs, the force's religion and beliefs policy gives all staff the choice of re-allocating the traditional Christian bank holiday festivals to suit their personal faith beliefs and this has been very well-received from a number of faith groups including Muslim and Jewish.

No public funding

"The force strives to provide a receptive environment for all its staff and our faith work stream is a positive example of our commitment to meet the diverse needs of all who work for us and the public we serve."

A Home Office spokesman said: the Pagan Police Association did not receive any funding from the Home Office.

He added: "The government wants a police service that reflects the diverse communities it serves.

"It is down to individual forces to make reasonable adjustments to accommodate the religion or beliefs of individual officers, as far as operational requirements permit."

Pagan Police Group Forms in UK

Friday July 17, 2009
In the United States, we have Officers of Avalon, which is an organization for police officers and other first responders who happen to be Pagans. Now, the UK has a new group called the Pagan Police Association as an advocate for their officers. In some areas, Pagan officers will be allowed to take as many as eight days off a year for religious observances.

How many police officers in Britain and Wales identify as Pagan? It's hard to tell, but the Hertfordshire Police Department has even added a couple of Pagan chaplains. Herts constable Andy Pardy is one of the founding members of the Pagan Police Association. There's also Wiccan officer Andy Hill of Staffordshire, who has organized the Pagan Police Group UK, an online resource for both officers and their families.

Superintendent Simon Hawkins, of Hertfordshire Police, told the BBC that the re-allocating of the traditional Christian bank holiday festivals to accomodate other religious groups "has been very well-received from a number of faith groups including Muslim and Jewish [officers]."

:More Federal Police State Stimulus Package Money

PHILADELPHIA — A $1 billion stimulus program to keep cops on the streets was praised Tuesday as a heavenly blessing in places like tiny Anguilla, Miss. – while New York City and other places that got nothing cursed their luck.

Vice President Joe Biden and Attorney General Eric Holder said the money from the Community Oriented Policing Services program, called COPS, was sent to places with the highest crime rates and the biggest budgetary problems.

"These officers will go to where they are needed most," Holder said.

The high demand for aid – from more than 7,000 agencies – is indicative of the tough economic times they are facing, the attorney general said.

That was little comfort to those who didn't get COPS money, like New York, Pittsburgh, Houston, Seattle and Phoenix. Those cities were among the roughly 6,000 applications rejected.

For every $1 to be delivered, another $7 in requests will go unanswered under the stimulus package grant program.

Biden called paying cops' salaries "a moral obligation," and said cities left out of funding now will get other money from a different federal grant program.

New York City had asked for almost $650 million from the COPS program. It got zero. Local lawmakers of both parties called the decision a disgrace and an outrage.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an independent, said the federal government has a "perverse" inclination to send money to failing programs, instead of ones that work.

Trying to put the best face on the brush-off from the federal government, Bloomberg called the lack of COPS money a "compliment" because the Obama administration recognized the city's low crime rate and balanced budget.

In Pittsburgh, police chief Nate Harper said he was disappointed but proud of the reasons he's not getting help.

"I'd rather have a safe city than have to depend on stimulus money," Harper said. "It is a good thing that the city crime stats are down," but he called it a "sour note" that lower crime means less money from Washington.

For the three-person police squad in Anguilla, Miss., the extra money is a godsend.

"This is a blessing from the sky," Assistant Police Chief Roy Sias said. The grant will help them hire one full-time and one part-time officer, he said.

Governors and mayors who are getting the help were grateful.

"Thank goodness, thank goodness, that we are doing something not only to save jobs but to protect communities across America," said Jon Corzine, the Democratic governor of New Jersey at the announcement in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia's mayor, Michael Nutter, also a Democrat, called the $10.9 million his city will get "an incredible opportunity and a full demonstration that the federal government has a role to play, can do something to make our cities safe and enjoyable for all of us."

Each state is entitled to at least $5 million in COPS money.

Other places getting COPS aid include: Mobile, Ala.; Mesa, Ariz.; Tulare County, Calif.; Monroe County, Fla.; the Seminole Tribe of Florida; Baltimore; Kalamazoo, Mich.; Rochester, N.Y.; Providence, R.I.; Salt Lake City, and Huntington, W.Va.

As local governments bleed red ink and officials look to plug budget gaps, they have swamped the government with a record number of requests for aid under the program.

Seeking to quiet the chorus of complaints even before the announcement was official, the Justice Department said Tuesday that New York City will get $7 million from another grant program. New York City was almost certain to get those funds anyway, since that program delivers money based mostly on a pre-set population-based formula.

The Big Apple also has a touchy history with Washington when it comes to federal aid for police costs. In 2006, the Bush administration sparked an uproar when it slashed homeland security money for New York City.

The Justice Department estimates the grant awards will help hire 3,818 new officers, and retain 881 positions that would otherwise be lost to budgetary belt-tightening.

That makes a total of 4,699 officers – still short of the program's announced goal of hiring 5,000 officers.

Under the COPS program, the federal government pays the officers' salary and benefits for three years, after which the local government is responsible for the costs.

Local police chiefs have been waiting anxiously for months to learn what they will receive, and understood even before the decisions were announced that many would be disappointed.


Barrett reported from Washington, D.C. Associated Press Writers Emily Wagster Pettus in Jackson, Miss., Sara Kugler in New York, and Joe Mandak in Pittsburgh also contributed to this report.

Man Who Threatened Obama, Calls Himself Messiah

Stevie's in the news again
JACKSON, Miss. -- A man who is accused of posting online threats to assassinate President Barack obama says he’s competent to stand trial.

Steven Joseph Christopher testified in federal court Monday that he’s the messiah but said that he never had plans or the ability to hurt obama. Christopher, of Wisconsin, was arrested in January by the Secret Service in Brookhaven and was charged with threatening to assassinate obama for what he claimed was "the country's own good," according to federal prosecutors.

A news release said Christopher made the threats Jan. 11 and 15 on the Web site www.alien-earth.org. The video has also appeared on YouTube.

Christopher said the threats were an effort to get his platform out. He said that the world will be destroyed by fire on Dec. 12, 2012 and that the only safe place will be central Australia, where he will lead the survivors as the messiah.

Rodolfo Buigas, a forensic psychologist for the Bureau of Prisons, testified during Monday’s hearing that Christopher understands that the threats were wrong, but said that he is delusional and therefore not competent to stand trial.

During Buigas' testimony, Christopher yelled out in the courtroom and called him a liar. Christopher’s attorney said that two grad students had interviewed Christopher and said Buigas had only spoken with him for a few minutes.

Christopher’s attorney argued that his client is competent to stand trial.

Judge Henry Wingate will resume testimony about Christopher’s competency to stand trial on Tuesday before making a ruling.
