The Nature of Truth

“Freedom had been hunted round the globe; reason was considered as rebellion; and the slavery of fear had made men afraid to think. But such is the irresistible nature of truth, that all it asks, and all it wants, is the liberty of appearing.”  – Thomas Paine

Got Corruption?

Vietnam -Rising Discontent over Corruption

Vietnam-Bankers

The global trend that is brewing against corruption is absolutely everywhere. Vietnam is dealing with rising public anger over corruption that has unfolded in and out of government. Duong Chi Dung (C-front), 56, is the former chairman of Vinalines, and his accomplices stand in the local People’s Court in Hanoi. The top two executives were sentenced to death for embezzlement as authorities try to allay rising public anger over corruption. Where US bankers got bonuses after 2007, the story is very different elsewhere.

FROM THE HALLS OF MONTEZUMA TO THE SHORES OF TRIPOLI

The Marine’s Hymn begins “From the Halls of Montezuma, To the shores of Tripoli.” Yet most people have no idea what Tripoli in Libya has to do with the Marines. American sailors were no longer under British protection after the Revolution and were being captured and sold into slavery by North African pirates from Tripoli. In 1785, pirates from Algiers captured an entire crew from an American merchant ship off the coast of Portugal.

Quoted from Armstrong Economics

Now there’s a historical twist we don’t often hear, that North African pirates made slaves of white American sailors after the American Revolution.

A European Prediction: American Civil Unrest in 2015

This is a ballsy prediction by a European economic analyst at Armstrong Economics:

The American Revolution would never have taken place but for the king doing the same thing as the NSA right now – going into people’s private homes searching for whatever they do, and then charging them for whatever. John Adams said there and then the revolution was born. The American Revolution was a response to oppressive behavior of the king. The NSA and Congress cannot see what they are doing is abusive, demeaning, and lowers the respect for them in the eyes of everyone but the sublime fool. Their abuse sets the stage for eventual civil unrest that is then sparked by the economic decline that will begin 2015.

Vatican Priests Accused of Connections to Gay Boy Prostitution

Italian newspapers are reporting on the issues addressed in the following video. Source: ChurchMilitant.TV Child prostitution is a hideous crime. The Catholic Church is developing a poor track record of protecting children. If any part of the story is true, that Vatican priests are exploiting children for sex, then heads should roll.
