In 1995 Representative Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) took to the floor to excoriate then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) over accusations that he had violated ethics laws. Now look who’s in the hot seat.
There is no end to the folly that the de-stimulating stimulus bill has wrought. Not only has unemployment consistently remained at 9.5 percent and above, but hundreds of thousands of additional potential workers have just given up looking.

Most every child has sought to fulfill their entrepreneurial spirit by opening a sidewalk lemonade stand. It’s as American as hotdogs, apple pie and… lemonade. And as 7-year-old Julie Murphy of Oregon made plans do the same thing millions of kids have done before her—during an art fair held the last Thursday of each month on the streets of Northeast Portland and conveniently called Last Thursday—she never dreamed she’d be violating a government regulation.
Back in January, as we were covering the increasingly Orwellian security apparatus springing up in the wake of the Christmas Day false flag bombing attack on an airliner headed for Detroit, we documented how the Department of Homeland Security insisted their new naked body scanners weren’t capable of storing images of passengers.

Members of the mainstream media, increasingly frustrated that people are turning away from them and to alternative media for their news, are now beginning to call for regulation of the Internet.
What does healthcare have to do with gold sales? In the minds of the fascist crafters of the Obamacare law: apparently a lot. Tucked away in the 2,300 page bill, in section 9006, is a provision that expands the scope of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form 1099. Beginning Jan. 1, 2012, a Form 1099 will have to be filed to report to the IRS the purchase of all goods and services by small business and self-employed people that exceed $600 during a calendar year.
