Former Senator and 2008 Democratic Presidential candidate Mike Gravel has announced he is leaving the democratic party and joining up with the fastest growing political party in America, The Libertarian Party.
"I'm joining the Libertarian Party because it is a party that combines a commitment to freedom and peace that can't be found in the two major parties that control the government and politics of America," says Gravel. "My libertarian views, as well as my strong stance against war, the military industrial complex and American imperialism, seem not to be tolerated by Democratic Party elites who are out of touch with the average American; elites that reject the empowerment of American citizens I offered to the Democratic Party at the beginning of this presidential campaign with the National Initiative for Democracy." -Mike Gravel

Top investor Jim Rogers has publicly called for Federal Reserve chaiman Ben Bernanke to resign, blaming him for destroying the dollar and bailing out his friends on Wall Street at the cost of the American taxpayer, in the latest savage attack on the Fed amidst the latest round of economic turmoil.
"I think the Fed should be abolished, we'd all be better off without the Fed....in my view their day is done," said Rogers during an appearance on CNBC yesterday.

In the House, Ron Paul recently spoke to his fellow congress members about the economic dangers we face. His speech focused more on how we need to change philosophy not accounting methods.
But the main point is the war and how much we are spending on our "empire" around the world. There's no way to start bringing down the deficit and saving the dollar without seriously looking at what we're spending on foreign military adventures.

Even the History Channel admits that the anthrax used in the attacks in the U.S. immediately following 9/11 came from our own defense department. The neo-cons do such a lazy job of disguising their false flag operations. I mean come on. The anthrax letters were sent to members of the "liberal" media and Democratic members of Congress. Hmmm.

Beware: This is only the beginning of the ridiculous behavior.

The shadow of the Sept. 11 terror attacks is eclipsing press freedom and other constitutional safeguards in the United States, Associated Press President and CEO Tom Curley said Thursday."What has become clear in the aftermath of 9/11 is how much expediency trumps safeguards," Curley said in remarks prepared for the annual dinner of the Radio and Television News Directors Foundation.
"Congress steps back from its constitutional role of executive oversight. Civilian oversight of the military wanes. A Justice Department interprets laws in ways that extend police powers. More drastically, prisons are established in places where government or military operatives circumvent due process or control trials," Curley said in accepting the foundation's First Amendment Leadership Award. "It's at moments like these when a free press matters most," he said. Curley was selected for his role in pushing for more openness in government and for emphasizing reporting on First Amendment issues. That includes efforts by the AP to establish the Sunshine in Government Initiative, a news media coalition that presses for strengthening Freedom of Information laws and for greater government openness.
Also receiving First Amendment honors from the foundation Thursday were CBS News correspondent Bob Schieffer and NBC Universal vice president Paula Madison. A special award also recognized former Federal Communications Commission Chairman Richard Wiley.
