Drone Attack Kills 12 After Taliban Threatens D.C.

April 2, 2009

“Sweet. Obama loves knocking off those Pakistanis with remote control coward planes, huh?”

An American drone once again struck a suspected militant camp in Pakistan. 12 people are dead, and 13 more are wounded, residents of Khadizai village tell Reuters.

It’s the first known attack since President Obama announced his new war strategy for the region — one that places heavy emphasis on destroying jihadist networks in Pakistan. The President pledged that no ground troops would be sent into Pakistan, to take out the terrorists. So the unmanned strikes are likely to increase, Pentagon officials tell Danger Room.

According to the New York Times, the attack was “apparently aimed at one of the area’s most important Taliban leaders, Hakimullah Mehsud” — but missed. He’s a top lieutenant to Pakistani Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud, who took credit earlier this week for the slaughter in a Lahore police training compound. “It’s revenge for the drone attacks in Pakistan,” he told Reuters. Separately, Mehsud told the Associated Press: “Soon, we will launch an attack in Washington that will amaze everyone in the world.”

Today’s unmanned strike “was the first drone attack” in Pakistan’s Orakzai agency, Reuters reports. It had been considered “one of the most peaceful Pashtun regions in northwest Pakistan.”

Plastic coffin liners being delivered by the truckloads

April 2, 2009

“I have been hearing about this for a while and kind of been putting in on the back burner, (it’s just too fuck up), but I just heard that the, “Center For Disease Control,” leases the land that these coffins are stored. So, that sent a bit of a chill down my neckface. I have to look into this one more because if it is true than something pretty gloomy and dark, (even for our government), is looming. I know that these people in control are arrogant, murdering, lying, psychopathic, occult worshiping, kidnapping, child molesting, toilet licking, suckers of Satan’s cock but I didn’t realize they really are going to try their “end game.” If you think this is nuts than I pray to some kinda God that your right. But unfortunately the evidence looks a little freaky. At the very least… have the lust for life to care about yourself and obtain at least a shred of self-esteem and look into it on your own. You know.. this could, (say this next word brat sarcastic), maybe affect your own heath. I know how much we all, (sarcastic again), truly care about ourselves and trust our, (sarcastic again), (no wait, don’t say it sarcastic), (ok fuck it, say it sarcastic), totally hip far-out new socialist/fascist government but for christ sake start ASKING SOME QUESTIONS about the world around YOU. I know you love having elite bankers steal money from you as they work together with our blood vomit corrupt nightmare government to essentially destroy the United States of America as we (sorta) know it. I get it… you’ve been broken down, you’ve bought into it, you have lost everything that is sacred in the spiritual glory that lies within those brains of yours. But many of us haven’t and we could use some help.” (non-sarcastic)

Jones Report
April 1, 2009

A listener sent in photos of thousands of plastic coffin liners awaiting pick-up for truck delivery somewhere in Alabama.This unsettling site may well correspond with concerned reports of mass graves being prepared at National Memorial Cemetery in Phoenix, Arizona, at theHouston National Cemetery as well as numerous other reports.

D.H. Williams reported in February on an Indiana county municipal official received detailed requests from FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security in regards to locations for mass graves, preparations for regional refugees, preparations for economic collapse and budget cuts under a GM collapse, as well as the locations of major installations, emergency assets and more.

The official, heard in the video below, says that he became concerned about the intentions of of the FEMA and DHS officials, whose scenarios apparently included a potential bird flu outbreak, alongside fires, floods and earthquakes.

While it is certainly true that cemeteries undergo routine expansions and utilize pre-made burial sites, concerns have grown over FEMA preparations for large numbers of death under various crises.


We have also received reports about questionnaires, such as  this one [pdf linked] from the New York State Division of Cemeteries issued in 2007, which solicits details about the capability of individual cemeteries to deal with “mass fatality or pandemic situations.”

“Should a prolonged mass fatality disaster or pandemic flu occur in your community would your cemetery be able to provide temporary or permanent internment space for a significant number of disaster or flu deaths in additional to your current burial services?”

The state of Colorado issued an executive order in 2000 asserting its authority to bury victims in mass graves and/or cremate bodies under emergency situations. Jim Erickson of The Rocky Mountain News reported February 8, 2003 that:

The state of Colorado could seize antibiotics, cremate disease-ridden corpses
and, under extreme circumstances, dig mass graves under executive orders
drafted for use in the event of a bioterrorism attack.

Below is  video of some half a million plastic coffin liners spotted in July 2008 awaiting pickup outside Atlanta, Georgia, also for unknown distribution.

THE BLAME GAME: Dems Investigating Bush Administration Role In AIG Collapse

April 2, 2009

“This blame game, false left right paradigm is all the government has to keep the American people from going absolutely ape-shit. When you realize that it is an absolute 100% FACT that there is no difference between the democratic & republican parties you’ll be well on your way to ape-shitting. It feels pretty fuckin’ good too.”

-F.F. 4/1/09 | HuffPost Reporting From DC


A House oversight panel is investigating the role Bush administration officials and regulators played in the collapse of American International Group. The first step of the investigation begins Thursday, House Oversight and Government Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Towns (D-N.Y.) tells the Huffington Post, when the committee hears testimony from former AIG CEO Hank Greenberg.

In November 2004, the Bush Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission agreed not to prosecute AIG for allegedly helping companies fudge their books. In exchange, AIG agreed to host a government-appointed auditor in company meetings. At the time, Greenberg said it brought “finality to the claims raised by the SEC and the Department of Justice.”

Towns said that Greenberg should be able to identify Bush administration officials involved in the decision-making around the settlement. Towns added the committee wants to know what Bush administration regulators knew about AIG’s credit default swaps and other highly risky positions that brought the company down.

Asked if he would be directly pursuing Bush administration officials, Towns said: “No doubt about it. That’s the reason I want to talk to Greenberg first. He might even point some folks out. That’s of great interest to us.”

Towns said the committee will also examine the AIG collapse to determine what legislation might be needed to make another occurrence less likely. Greenberg stepped down in 2005.

“The committees have not talked to Mr. Greenberg. They’ve only talked to Liddy” — AIG’s current head Edward Liddy — “and Liddy has basically said, ‘It was Greenberg’s problem,'” Towns said.

“You can’t have an investigation just moving forward. You have to look back as well. And that’s what we’re doing,” said Towns.

The Bush administration’s preferred way of dealing with corporate scandal was to defer prosecution. The Wall Street Journal reported last week that Bush prosecutors made 103 deferred and nonprosecution agreements with U.S. companies between 2002 and 2009. While Clinton was president, meanwhile, only 11 such pacts were entered into.

Criminal charges could result from the investigation, Towns said.

“All kinds of things could happen depending on what we find. And we’re looking,” he said. “Our eyes are wide open. Wherever the road leads us, that’s where we plan to go.”

Dear Friend of Liberty,

I am proud to report that our first-ever Campaign for Liberty Regional Conference was an outstanding success!

Last weekend, hundreds of freedom-loving grassroots activists assembled in St. Louis to celebrate our movement and train for the future.

On Friday night, nearly 1,000 people gathered at the Millennium Hotel for our Freedom Celebration. Ron Paul, Judge Andrew Napolitano, and staff members from C4L and Young Americans for Liberty spoke to the standing room only crowd concerning protecting civil liberties, restoring a policy of sound money, auditing the Federal Reserve, and continuing to educate ourselves in order to effectively defend our principles.

Over 400 activists participated in our Saturday grassroots training sessions and C-SPAN 2 filmed Tom Woods’ lunchtime talk on the current economic crisis (based on his new book Meltdown) for Book TV.

Click on the image below to view the first part of Friday night’s Celebration, and visit Campaign for Liberty’s blog here to see the rest of the program.

Thank you to all of the staff and volunteers who worked so hard to make this an event to remember. Campaign for Liberty staffers Deb Wells and Allison Gibbs have both written on the C4L blog this week about the incredible work of our volunteers. Read Deb’s post here and Allison’s here. And click here to see our official pictures of the Celebration.

Never before have our freedoms been under such constant assault, but never before has our movement been in such a strong position to champion our principles and achieve our goals. The St. Louis Conference sent a clear message that we will not be discouraged or deterred in our mission to reclaim the Republic and restore the Constitution. Together, we will once again secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.

In Liberty,

John Tate

President, Campaign for Liberty


Greater Gun Rights Battles Looming

April 2, 2009

As Lands Bill Fight Ends 
— Greater battles over gun rights loom 

Gun Owners of America E-Mail Alert

Phone: 703-321-8585 / FAX: 703-321-8408 

Wednesday, April 1, 2009 

In March, both the U.S. House and Senate finished up work on a massive, 
anti-gun $10 billion omnibus federal land bill. 

The bill had been held up for over a year in large part due to GOA 
members fighting for Second Amendment rights on federal land — YOUR 

The Second Amendment has been null and void for many years on all land 
controlled by the National Park Service (NPS).  While regulations 
promulgated in the waning days of the Bush administration partially 
reversed that gun ban, a federal judge recently blocked those rules from 
taking effect. 

GOA worked closely with pro-gun members of the House and Senate to add a 
complete repeal of the NPS gun prohibition to the larger land bill. 
While these efforts delayed passage of the bill, in the end the anti-gun 
congressional leadership teamed up with “pro-gun” compromisers and 
passed the measure without protecting the Second Amendment. 

In an effort to appease gun owners, language was added to the bill to 
protect hunting and fishing.  But, as GOA pointed out to the Congress, 
the Founding Fathers did not pledge their lives, fortunes and sacred 
honor to protect a recreational pastime. 

The final attempt to protect the Second Amendment from NPS bureaucrats 
came on a procedural vote in the House that would have made in order an 
amendment, sponsored by pro-gun Reps. Doc Hastings (R-WA) and Rob Bishop 
(R-UT), to repeal the gun ban.  That motion failed by a vote of 242-180. 

So now not only does the gun ban remain in place, the new bill greatly 
expands the total amount of NPS land.  Since NPS-controlled parks and 
trails also include many busy roadways, hundreds of thousands of gun 
owners can unwittingly find themselves in violation of the gun ban 
without even knowing they are on federal land. 

Representatives Hastings and Bishop, along with Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA), 
have vowed to continue their efforts to wipe this unconstitutional gun 
ban from the books.  In the Senate, Tom Coburn (R-OK) is also pushing 
for the repeal of the anti-gun NPS regulations. 

Gun Owners of America would like to thank the thousands upon thousands 
of email subscribers who repeatedly contacted their congressmen in this 
battle to protect the Second Amendment.  We were sold out by 
compromisers this time, but we will “remember in November” 
those who 
voted against the Second Amendment. 

Please help spread the word so we can get even more people contacting 
their elected officials.  As the late Senator Everett Dirksen said, 
“When I feel the heat, I see the light.” 

And do we ever need to turn up the heat! 

Many important battles for your Second Amendment rights lay before us. 
For instance, Barack Obama and his anti-gun cronies are making a massive 
push to renew the Clinton semi-auto ban. 

The President and his Attorney General, Eric Holder, are blaming the 
current violence among Mexican drug cartels on firearms from the United 
States.  This is another blatant attempt by anti-gun advocates to use 
whatever situation they can find to further erode your Second Amendment 

The problems of corruption and violence in Mexico should not be used as 
an excuse to curtail your right to keep and bear arms.  But once again 
law-abiding American gun owners are in danger of being punished for the 
criminal actions of others. 

The Clinton gun ban is just one of the attacks that you and GOA will be 

There is also a massive anti-gun bill in Congress, H.R. 45, that 
includes universal gun owner licensing and registration, and the Obama 
White House continues its efforts to ban private firearms transactions 
at gun shows. 

You can help us reach out to even more gun owners.   Please forward this 
message to your friends and encourage them to sign up for the GOA email 

And if you haven’t already become a member of GOA, consider joining. 
For a small amount of money such as $35, $50 or $100, you can join with 
other Americans to save our Constitutional rights.  Visit to join GOA today. 

Thank you again for being part of the GOA team working to protect 
American liberty.
