S. 1867 -- National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2012
(Sen. Levin, D-MI)
S 3081, Indefinite detention, habeas corpus, posse comitatus, Enemy Belligerent Interrogation Detention Prosecution Act, judge napolitano, freedom watch, john mccain, carl levin, lindsey graham, rand paul, military, arbitrary arrest, us citizen, battlefield, prepper, food storage, weatherproof ammo, suspected terrorist,
Thank you for contacting me regarding the new provisions for detainees proposed in Sections 1031 and 1032 of S. 1253, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012. I welcome your thoughts and comments.
Section 1031 of the NDAA establishes guidelines to allow U.S. Armed Forces to detain "covered persons" captured during hostilities as unprivileged enemy combatants, pending disposition under the laws of war. The provision defines a "covered person" as a person who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. This provision also applies to individuals who support al Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners.
Section 1032 requires U.S. Armed Forces to hold in custody as an unprivileged enemy combatant any person who is a member or part of al Qaeda or an affiliated entity, and who participated in planning or carrying out an attack or attempted attack against the United States or its coalition partners. The requirement does not extend to citizens of the United States. Also, the Secretary of Defense is authorized to waive required detention.
S. 1253 has passed the Senate Armed Services Committee, and is currently awaiting consideration by the full Senate. Should this legislation be brought to the Senate floor, you may be certain that I will keep your views in mind.
I appreciate hearing from you, and I hope that you will not hesitate to contact me on any issue that is important to you.

United States Senator

Topic discussion about being overweight and a prepper. More info below so please read. If you find this video helpful, please consider placing an Avon order with me as it helps to keep this channel running: http://www.youravon.com/mmartin3538
there are many prepper out there who talk all the time about stocking up on food, guns, ammo, supplies, medical equipment, hunting items and so forth. They show you how to cook, clean, can, cultivate, garden, hunt, fish, and a whole slew of other topics. But your first line of defense is yourself and your body. If you are not physically able to sustain in a SHTF scenario, then all of those preps are going to do you no good. We have to think about our bodies and our health to make sure that we are capable of surviving in difficult times. And where many of us think we could handle it, when put to the real test, we may find out that we are not in the shape we need to be in.
If we face an economic collapse or a crisis in the economy and gas prices spike, could you walk 10 or 20 miles to town to get the food you need to survive? If your home was invaded, are you strong enough physically to engage in hand to hand combat? If you had to get out and chop wood for firewood as your only heat source, could you do that and haul it by hand? If you lose electricity and have to go your own home repairs with manual tools because you've lost the use of your power tools, would you have the stamina needed to do that?
These are areas that i think that many preppers aren't thinking about. And it should be one of the very first things we consider. If we've allowed ourselves to become fat and lazy, then no amount of prepping is going to help us when the physical demands of an end of the world scenario presents itself to us.
September 28, 2011
In August, No new jobs have been created.
A new report says the number of new jobs roughly equaled the number of jobs lost.
the length of the average workweek fell slightly to 34 hours.
This is the first time a jobs report has come in at zero since February 1945.
The AP reports that unemployment for young people is the highest since World War II, and they risk living in poverty more than others - nearly 1 in 5.
China has stated their plan to liquidate US treasuries.
Their central bank plans to down their portfolio of US debt as soon as possible.
Li Daokui at the World Economic Forum say that they intend to move from foreign reserve holdings to physical assets including stakes in Boeing, Intel, and Apple. He said Once the US Treasury market stabilizes they can liquidate more of their holdings..
All this after five of the world's top central banks moved to flood the markets with dollars.
The European Central Bank said it will work closely with the Federal Reserve, the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan, and the Swiss National Bank.
Their plan is to offer 3 month loans to banks until the end of the year.
The FED has just launched their 'Twist' stimulus initiative....sure to be packed full of lemons...
They The Fed plan spend about $400 billion buying back bonds maturing withing 3 years and swapping this for longer-term debt.
They claim this will help boost loans and keep interest rates down yet this plan puts no money directly into the economy.
The sell-off followed news from the Federal Reserve, which said that it sees "significant downside risks" to the U.S. economy.
Australia's dollar reached a 10-month low in response.
Gold investment demand in China is likely to top a record 200 metric this year.
China is stating that they are willing to Buy Euro Bonds From Sovereign-Debt-Crisis Nations.
This is their stated plan to move their foreign-exchange reserves.
China is stating their price for an Italian rescue.
China has called for major strategic concessions from Europe before agreeing to rescue the eurozone, This ended hopes for immediate purchases of Italian bonds.
Premier Wen Jiabao warned that China will not sign a blank cheque for states that have failed to carry out full financial reform and that countries must first put their own houses in order.
China has accumulated roughly 800bn euros of eurozone bonds over the last decade and holds about 1.17 trillion in US debt.
Following this event, the S & P downgraded Italy's sovereign debt rating by one notch to A from A+. Credit Ratings in Spain, Ireland, Portugal, Cyprus, Greece, and the United States have also be cut.
China is also wooing the Caribbean with an offer of $1 bln in loans.
This is to finance infrastructure projects as it deepens ties in a region historically linked with the United States.
The loans will be made available through the state-run China Development Bank
China's wooing of the Caribbean is part of a global push by Beijing to promote loans and investment while seeking natural resources and political influence in the developing world from Africa to Latin America.
The Chinese are already involved in a $2.6 billion resort project in the Bahamas which broke ground earlier this year.
They've also invested more than $1 billion in one of the country's leading ports.
Simplifying the visa process for Chinese tourists, or eliminating it entirely, will be a major step for business relations between China and The Bahamas.
So with all this growth and only so much land...where is the new red china to go?
China is expanding its cities by building massive artificial islands
In 2014, when the chain of artificial islands in Longkou Bay is compete, they will comprise an area as big as Manhattan from its southern tip all the way to Central Park, but with vastly more ocean-front property, suitable for ports as well as seaside homes.
It will take 300 million cubic meters of earth and stone hauled from a nearby hill to build the islands, or enough material to fill the interior of the Empire State Building 30 times.

The allegations are part of the defense of Vicente Zambada-Niebla, who was extradited to the United States to face drug-trafficking charges in Chicago. He is also a top lieutenant of drug kingpin Joaquin "Chapo" Guzman and the son of Ismael "Mayo" Zambada-Garcia, believed to be the brains behind the Sinaloa cartel.
The case could prove to be a bombshell on par with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' "Operation Fast and Furious," except that instead of U.S. guns being allowed to walk across the border, the Sinaloa cartel was allowed to bring drugs into the United States. Zambada-Niebla claims he was permitted to smuggle drugs from 2004 until his arrest in 2009.
Randall Samborn, assistant U.S. attorney and spokesman for the Justice Department in Chicago, declined comment.
The court in Chicago had a status hearing on Wednesday and ordered the government to respond to allegations in Zambada-Niebla's motion by Sept. 11.
According to the court documents, Mexican lawyer Humberto Loya-Castro, another high-level Sinaloa cartel leader, had his 1995 U.S. drug-trafficking case dismissed in 2008 after serving as an informant for 10 years for the U.S. government.
Visit http://www.goldsilverdvd.com for bonus features - 'How Does Mike Invest?', 'How Did Mike Get Started?' (hear the story of Mike firing his financial advisor), and 'How & What To Buy'. This is the full version of the movie, which features extra parts not yet seen on YouTube: Currency creation, the Federal Reserve, fractional reserve banking, how central banks steal our wealth, runaway deficits, the second wave of mortgage resets, Mike's prediction of short term deflation THEN hyperinflation, New Media, Ron Paul, and the Constitution.
It was fascinating to watch the film again and see how things have moved on since it was filmed in June of 2009. Gold was $950. Silver was $15. The Gold/Silver ratio was 65. You could pick up a monster box of eagles for a cool $8000.
Though the prices and ratios have moved on, the film is entirely relevant and still one of the best ways for a newcomer to get up to speed with gold and silver. It is jam packed with information and calm analysis by the top experts in their field, who have been right since the start of the last decade. If you have a friend or family member who wants to know about metals but you can't find the time to help them understand, or if there is someone you want to help but they just won't listen, or even if you just want to say 'Haha! Told you so!'....do them a favour and send them the link to this movie. Embed it on Facebook. Tweet it. The lot...
At least they won't be able to say 'Why didn't you warn me?' as they ask you for a loan!
"You know, we're in this period where governments are abusing their currencies worldwide, and gold and silver are going to account for all of this. And like I say, there are these brief moments throughout history where the investment with the single greatest potential gains in purchasing power, is also the safest place that you can put your wealth, for the past 5000 years! And I'm not going to let that pass me up, let me tell you!"
Thank you Mike Maloney, neither are we.

http://thejuicemedia.com RAP NEWS episode 9. 2011 hits harder than a pre-apocalyptic hangover as "the economy" threatens to annihilate our stock-piles of imaginary, inflated wealth, spawning a battle of epic proportions as insurgent grassroots forces move in to #OccupywallStreet and coalitions of indignados hold their ground in Athens, Madrid and Tel Aviv; facing up to the riotgear, batons and tazers that stand between them and a more equal redistribution of the proverbial pie. ...But enough action and excitement! It's time for some heroic armchair philosophy: Join your affable host, Robert Foster as he attempts to shine some light on this mysterious creature, "the economy". Is this the failure of capitalism that we are witnessing, or its triumph? Is it the end of the end of history, or yet another crazy chapter in the whimsical journey of the human experiment?
Postscript: For the occasion, we've pulled out the big guns: admittedly it was a tough choice deciding who to interview: we could've had Alan Greenspan on the show, or the Emperor himself, Milton Friedman; the first lady, Christine Lagarde; or financial buffs like Gerald Celente, Peter Schiff and Donald Trump. But to get the freshest juice we knew we had to go further - much further. Rap News 9 features two VIP Internet grandees who have uploaded gigabytes of juice via the one remaining free frequency to feed a discerning and ravenous audience, thirsty for answers. Whilst these two fine folk agree with each other on many things, fortunately, there's no shortage of issues to rap-battle about. Well, time's short - so let the rhyme-rodeo begin as we blast off on a rollercoaster odyssey. It's the stupid Economy, in all its gory glory.

A massive case of Euro-sis is hitting the markets. There are a lot of rumors about what will happen, but there is still no definitive word from the credit rating agencies. Germany is the big boy. They still have a AAA credit rating. However, there are talks that S&P will cut France down from AAA to AA, as will as Spain and Portugal.
