Science displays at Wisconsin State Parks will tell you that glaciers covered our landscape, ending just 12,000 years ago.
This means that ice, up to a MILE-THICK, covered this state, and carved out features like the Kettle Moraine. A six-inch snowfall like we get now and then in winter is not what caused these earth changes.
Question: What did the Indians do back then to cause the ice to melt away? Or did they just happen to be the first settlers after the ice melted away? Melted then, by what?
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true.
–SNIP– To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me.
Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal he received financial preferences, scholarships and/or loans, as a foreign student. They probably also reveal academic mediocrity, but that’s par for the course for many of our politicians (except it becomes embarrassing in Obama’s case where he has the reputation of being brilliant).

Since 2006, the U.S. dollar has experienced a one-quarter to one-third drop in value to the Chinese yuan, depending on the choice of base.
Now China is going to let the dollar decline further in value. China also says it is considering undermining the petrodollar by pricing oil futures on the Shanghai Futures Exchange in yuan. This, on top of the growing avoidance of the dollar to settle trade imbalances, means that the dollar’s role as reserve currency is coming to an end – which means the termination of the U.S. as financial bully and financial imperialist. This blow to the dollar, in addition to the blows delivered by jobs offshoring and the uncovered bets in the gambling casino created by financial deregulation, means that the U.S. economy as we knew it is coming to an end.

Is America Really a Superpower If It Can’t Even Produce The Lead For Its Own Bullets? — The Mess of the Doe Run Lead Smelter
The systematic dismantling of America from within its own walls continues. In one case of many, this one falls under crippling and shutting down critical industry via environmental regulation.

The other day someone commented, “Man, there sure has been a lot of developments since PRISM broke this summer.” So we combed through all the major articles that have come out and made a list of everything we’ve learned.

EXCEPT WHEN IT IS AND WHEN IT DOES. Lepanto. Vienna. Tours. Belgrade. –Ann Barnhardt
DÜSSELDORF, Germany — The Deutsche Post office across from the train station here offers DVDs, umbrellas, phone cards and toys — with the processing of mail appearing nearly an afterthought. And the facility housing it is not a post office at all. Deutsche Post occupies a corner space in a bank.
With mail volumes decreasing 1 to 2 percent annually in many countries, European postal services from Germany to Sweden to Switzerland have reinvented themselves over the past decade as multifaceted delivery and information companies tailored to the virtual age. Though Deutsche Post by law still delivers to every address six days a week, it has jettisoned tens of thousands of buildings, 100,000 positions and its traditional focus on paper mail.

The following script is from “Benghazi” which aired on Oct. 27, 2013. The correspondent is Lara Logan. Max McClellan, producer.
When Chris Stevens was killed in Benghazi, Libya, on the anniversary of September 11th last year, it was only the sixth time that the United States had lost an ambassador to its enemies. The events of that night have been overshadowed by misinformation, confusion and intense partisanship. But for those who lived through it, there’s nothing confusing about what happened, and they share a sense of profound frustration because they say they saw it coming.
Tonight, you will hear for the first time from a security officer who witnessed the attack. He calls himself, Morgan Jones, a pseudonym he’s using for his own safety. A former British soldier, he’s been helping to keep U.S. diplomats and military leaders safe for the last decade. On a night he describes as sheer hell, Morgan Jones snuck into a Benghazi hospital that was under the control of al Qaeda terrorists, desperate to find out if one of his close friends from the U.S. Special Mission was the American he’d been told was there.

#1 Thanks to CBS for giving this the attention it truly deserves.
#2 However, It takes over THIRTEEN MONTHS for a report like this to come out? And this is on a MAJOR scandal. Makes you wonder what else is hiding under the dozens of news stories coming out of the “Obama” administration.
#3 “Obama”? In the transcript, “Obama” isn’t mentioned once, nor is “Clinton”. To CBS: Thanks again. Now stop protecting the top.
Recent comments by the head of the Bank of England, the U.K.’s powerful central bank, offered further evidence that Western central bankers are preparing to shower even greater quantities of fiat currency on private banks and financial institutions — all at public expense. Already, tens of trillions of dollars’ worth of debt-based currency has been created out of thin air by the Federal Reserve, the BoE, the European Central Bank, and other central banks to prop up private mega-banks and wild spending sprees by government amid the economic crisis. With help and guidance from the BoE’s new governor, Mark Carney, analysts say all of that appears set to accelerate.

The Obama administration has performed the unique trick of alienating the majority of our most important allies, while at the same time causing America to be viewed as a patsy by its enemies.
The situation is bound to get worse now that the administration has taken the position that most financial institutions outside the United States are conspiring to help Americans and others avoid U.S. taxes and, thus, is attempting to require all of these foreign financial institutions to report to — and, in effect, become agents of — the Internal Revenue Service.
A global revolt is brewing against the United States for being an international financial bully. The consequences of this revolt are likely to be extremely damaging and long-lasting to the nation.

This is sheer madness. the people that are already citizens will be put on the back burner for US businesses that are at least 50+ to choose illegals over the citizens. Basically if you hire a citizen over one of the new 11 million legalized you (the business owner) will be penalized $5000 per head!
UPDATE: Alex Jones: The fact that these letters were being sent out to Chase customers was confirmed at the time that we published, but in the last 24 hours we have confirmed that even large businesses doing international transactions have also received the same letters.
I personally visited Chase Bank and inquired about setting up an account and asked if I could wire money out of the country or withdraw the amounts of cash listed in their letter. I was told no, and that I would have to “qualify” with them for a special type of international bank account and would have to deposit huge amounts of money and pay fees to be able to access those services.
What this constitutes is a war on cash and a war on small business and individuals.

…But Now You Don’t Have Enough Money to Keep the WW2 Memorial Open?
American militants like Anwar al-Awlaki are placed on a kill or capture list by a secretive panel of senior government officials, which then informs the president of its decisions, according to officials.
There is no public record of the operations or decisions of the panel, which is a subset of the White House’s National Security Council, several current and former officials said. Neither is there any law establishing its existence or setting out the rules by which it is supposed to operate.
