The Barack Obama Conspiracy

Obama spent over 1 million dollars to block disclosure of his records. Why would someone with nothing to hide do this?

Barack Obama has spent over 1 million dollars with 11 law firms in 12 states to block disclosure of his personal records, birth certificates and school transcripts of Occidental College, Columbia University, and Harvard Law School.

There is an interesting account of Obama’s life disclosed in “The Obama File” which reveals much of what has been uncovered regarding the personal life of Barack Obama, aka. Barry Soetoro, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro, or whatever his real name may be, the man elected President of the United States. But if the actual name of our President were the only mystery surrounding "Barack Obama" I would quit right here. Unfortunately, it is only the beginning of the Barack Obama Conspiracy.

A very official appearing signed birth certificate for Barack Hussein Obama has appeared in the media indicating Obama’s birthplace to be Mombasa, Kenya. The Kenya Ambassador to the United States and the paternal step-grandmother of Obama have stated to media sources he was born in Kenya. An unsigned short-form birth certificate indicating he was born in Hawaii was posted on the Obama website, but was later acknowledged as a forgery since it lacked an official stamp; but no long-form official signed birth certificate has been produced, and the Honolulu hospital at which Obama claims to have been born apparently has no record of his birth. This means he was not born in the United States and would already disqualify him from the Presidency. But this is only the beginning!

It is well documented that Obama attended private school in Indonesia under the name Barry Soetoro, and that this documentation discloses his citizenship to be Indonesian. And considering that Indonesia does not recognize dual citizenship, the declaration of Indonesian citizenship would have required an act of “repatriotization” to become a U.S. citizen again, and there is no record of such an act, anywhere. There is also no record of any application for changing his name to Barry Soetoro, or back to Barack Obama.

After graduating from high school in Hawaii, Obama was granted a Fulbright fellowship to attend Occidental College. The Fulbright program is administered by the U.S. Department of State, and is awarded to “foreign students”. Americans for Freedom of Information won a suit in the Superior Court of California that released information surrounding the Fulbright award. The transcript indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia.

Access to his Columbia University records have been blocked to date; so we do not know who financed his education, or how he was able to achieve admission. Fox News interviewed 400 classmates of Obama at Columbia, and found it strange that not one of them remembered Barack Obama. It is known that Obama met several friends from Pakistan while attending Occidental, and there are allegations that he was connected to an advisor of a Saudi Arabian prince that assisted with admission and funding for Harvard Law School. During this same time Obama traveled to Indonesia and Pakistan, presumably on an Indonesian passport, because there appears to be no record of a U.S. passport at that time.

There are numerous media articles that allege Obama was recruited by the CIA while at Occidental, and that possibly the CIA paid for his education at Columbia. To further support the CIA allegation, after Obama graduated from Columbia he was employed at Business International Corporation, a company commonly associated as a front for CIA agents. To add further intrigue to the mystery, Obama’s mother worked for U.S. Agency for International Development, another company commonly alleged as a cover for CIA agents. However, association with the CIA on behalf of Obama is all circumstantial, offering no real proof of his employment or any other professional affiliation with the Company. Accusations of his dealings with the CIA are merely speculations and assumptions, however convincing they may be.

What is perhaps more mystifying, is that no record has been provided of who paid for Obama to attend Harvard Law School. But there are several allegations his admission and education were arranged by a connection to Saudi Arabia, and yes, again the CIA. And while at Harvard, many find it highly suspicious that he was elected President of Harvard Law Review without publishing any signed written work.

Another controversy is over Obama’s Social Security number. The filing with Washington DC federal court alleges him using multiple Social Security numbers, and using a Social Security number assigned to someone else. Records show his Social Security number indicates Connecticut as the state of origin, a state in which he has never lived. Records further indicate his card was issued between 1977-79, so how was he employed by Baskin-Robbins in Oahu, Hawaii in 1975. And the records also reveal his number was previously issued to someone born in 1890.

There are many accusations and depositions surrounding the personal records of President Obama, and his aggressive attempts to block their release only intensify the controversy. If the release of the Occidental College transcript was the smoking gun sought by many who question if Obama is legally our President, then the conspiracy theorists must be drooling over possible misconduct surrounding his birth certificate and other personal records yet to be disclosed.

I have the feeling this is but the tip of the iceburg. That there is more to our President than meets the eye...

My dear readers, I will continue investigating Barack Obama, if that is his real name, and report to you any and all findings.

Only time will reveal the truth.

The 10 Most Popular Conspiracies

Here are the 10 Most Popular Conspiracy Theories Ever

According to polls, Most Americans believe in the existence of some conspiracy theories.

According to recent polls, most Americans agree that the scenario posed by at least one conspiracy theory is very likely or somewhat likely.

Of the rest of the population, many people follow these conspiracy theories even if they don't believe in them. After all, people follow science fiction, fantasy and fable.

Although some popular conspiracy theories are absolutely unbelievable, most have some degree of truth to them. This is what makes them so intriguing. No matter if its the fantastic implications that would be implied if they were true, or if its soley the imagination that keeps these theories alive, they are popular and they are here to stay.

Bellow you will find the most popular conspiracy theories to date, though more will surely develope as history unfolds new mysteries, secrets and questions for mankind to ponder.

1. The JFK Assassination

This one’s classic, so much so that movies have been made about the possible conspiracy theories behind the shooting of President Kennedy in November 1963. There are so many conspiracy theories floating around about JFK that going through them all would take quite a while. Most famous is the idea that there were more shooters than just Lee Harvey Oswald, thanks to the testing on the speed of Oswald’s rifle and witness accounts of hearing shots from multiple directions. Then there are those who insist LBJ, the CIA, the Russians or a group of international bankers were behind the assassination. According to recent polls, more than half of all Americans believe it is very likely or somewhat likely that government officials were "directly responsible for the assassination of President Kennedy." The theories will never die. People love a conspiracy, and it’s a lot more intriguing than believing JFK was shot by a lone nut.

2. Aliens at Roswell

The granddaddy of government cover-up stories (and fuel for “The X-Files” and countless other media), the theory that the U.S. government recovered an alien ship and corpses after a 1947 crash in the New Mexico desert has been the subject of intense speculation and debate for decades. Initial news reports said that military at Roswell Army Air Field had recovered a “flying saucer,” but subsequent military announcements clarified that they’d only recovered a weather balloon. The story remained mostly forgotten until the late 1970s, when ufologist Stanton Friedman interviewed a man who’d helped clean up the debris in 1947 and who claimed it was alien-made. Internal investigations revealed that the debris was likely scrap from a military program that used balloons to test for sound waves from Soviet bomb tests, with the bodies a combination of bad info and mixed up memories about recovered test dummies. There’s no proof of alien hardware ever being there, but then, lack of proof is what makes a conspiracy theory so catchy.

3. Secret Societies Run the World

The New World Order, Illuminati and Freemasons have been getting plenty of press in recent years. Together, they supposedly secretly control the world's governments; they worship a divine entity known as the Great Architect of the Universe and seek the world's destruction so it can be rebuilt more perfectly; they have long infiltrated nearly all aspects of American society, business and government. They are bent on establishing a New World Order. The appeal of this theory is its utter vagueness and total flexibility based on location and government; basically, anyone in power is probably doing something super secretive and deadly right now that’s designed to increase the suffering of the masses and bring more wealth and power to the elite. It goes without saying that there’s no proof of any of this, but then, that’s the other appeal of conspiracy theories.

4. 9/11 Was an Inside Job

This is one of the many “false flag” conspiracy theories in which people posit that actions carried out by one government are disguised to look like the work of another body, which in the case of 9/11 refers to the belief that U.S. authorities were complicit in the attacks while letting them appear to be driven by al-Qaeda. The conspiracies fall into two basic camps: that the U.S. knew the attacks were going to happen and let them occur anyway, or that U.S. forces planned and executed the attacks and then pinned the blame on al-Qaeda. Conspiracy theorists also claim that the World Trade Centers were destroyed with intentional implosions and not solely the damage from being hit by the planes, and that this was a justification for the U.S. to go to war (again) in the Middle East. The 9/11 Commission Report and multiple independent news organizations have reported that such conclusions are highly implausible, if not downright insane.

5. Global Warming Is a Fraud

Despite scientific research to the contrary, many critics believe that global warming is a myth cooked up to let the U.N. enforce a system of global government and to burden U.S. citizens with random taxes. Surveys have also found that some energy companies have bankrolled think tanks and columnists to speak out against global warming, or to shift the debate and settle for the compromise that it is occurring but isn’t necessarily influenced by humans. The issue remains a politically contentious one, but that doesn’t change the science underneath. Check out my post, the Global Warming Conspiracy, here on

6. The Moon Landings Never Happened

The short version is that some people think that the Apollo 11 Moon landing in July 1969 was a hoax shot on sets designed to look like the Moon. The ball got rolling in 1974, when Bill Kaysing self-published a book titled We Never Went to the Moon, listing his complaints and theories about why he thought the series of missions were fakes. Moon landing hoax believers tend to get lost when it comes to motive, though, claiming that the U.S. government rigged the fake landings as a way to gain prestige and beat the Soviet Union in the space race. Despite the existence of mountains of objective evidence, a few wingnuts continue to believe the whole thing was a hoax.

7. AIDS Is Man-Made

There’s no shortage of scientific evidence about the origin of HIV and AIDS, but nobody ever let evidence get in the way of a good conspiracy theory. Proponents of these theories say that AIDS was invented in a lab for purposes of biological warfare. Some have said the disease was created to wipe out the gay population by a controlling government. All of these conspiracy theories have been debunked, but just like every other crackpot idea on this list, proponents of the theory say that the debunking is just further proof that the “truth” is being suppressed. AIDS is a humanitarian crisis, but not a weapon.

8. Elvis is still Alive

Although considered by some conspiracy theorists to be the most ridiculous, unbelievable of all the conspiracy theories, it is perhaps also the best know and most liked. Who hasn't heard or even made a joke about seeing Elvis alive somewhere? Who wouldn't love hearing him be found living a humble, discreet life in Switzerland? Elvis sightings have come from all over the world, from Memphis to Madagascar, people have claimed seeing him everywhere to the point of the sightings being a phenomenon themselves. Indeed, there are Elvis theorists who have some pretty convincing evidence to support him being alive!

This theory is similar to the one attached to 9/11 in that it posits that the U.S. government had advance knowledge of the 1941 Pearl Harbor attack but let it happen as a way to force the nation to enter the war. Subsequent investigations have shown that the U.S. knew about or at least expected some kind of attack from Japan (just as, many years later, George W. Bush knew about Osama bin Laden’s plans to attack the U.S.), still FDR allowed some 2,400 people to be killed so that he'd have popular support for entering World War II. Order Pearl Harbor: Mother of All Conspiracies from Amazon, HERE.

10. Barack Obama was not Born in the United States

Although one of the newest major conspiracy theory, should these accusations be true, the implications would eliminate Barack Obama from being President of the United States. Wait, oh, yeah, Obama already IS President of the United States! Well, if his many enemies can ever prove that he was NOT born in the US, they will have grounds for impeachment proceedings against President Obama.

That's it for the 10 most popular conspiracy theories to date. There are as many more conspiracies out there as there are people on earth, and as I write this, new conspiracies are forming while new theories are developing. Bellow I have added the 5 runners up in the ever evolving and never ending list of conspiracy theories.

Maybe some day I will write the post, "The Top 100 Conspiracy Theories"?

11. New World Order or NWO

Various New World Order theories exist, sharing the idea that a society of powerful individuals is slowly but surely arranging to dissolve the sovereignty of all existing nations and replace them with a single totalitarian government to rule the entire world. The United Nations often figures in these conspiracy suppositions.

12. The One-Dollar Bill Is Full of Occult Symbols

Yank out your wallet, pull out a single, and gawk at all the symbols you don't understand plastered all over the place (for example, if you look very closely near the front, top right corner, you'll see an owl peeking back out at you). Well, conspiracy theorists have plenty of explanations for you, many of the most popular being that they're occult symbols placed there to hint at the mystical -- and malevolent -- origins of the United States. The pyramid on the back, for example, has 13 steps, and is hovered over by what they say is the Egyptian Eye of Horus, as well as the words "Novus Ordo Seclorum," which conspiracy theorists mistranslate as "New World Order."

13. Marilyn Monroe Was Killed by the Kennedys

The iconic blond bombshell, Marilyn Monroe, died of a drug overdose (listed as "probable suicide") on Aug. 5, 1962, at the age of 36. But ever since author Norman Mailer wrote in 1973 that he suspected a cover-up, theories have swirled that she was killed at the behest of President John Kennedy or his brother Attorney General Robert Kennedy, both of whom conspiracy theorists have linked her to romantically.

14. The Philadelphia Experiment

An urban legend that would later inspire a feature film, the Philadelphia Experiment is the name of the alleged cloaking of a Navy destroyer in October 1943. The story goes that the experiment was dabbling with the Unified Field Theory and playing with radiation and electromagnetism, allowing the Navy to bend light around a ship and render it basically invisible to human observers. The legend goes on to say that the ship in question didn’t just become invisible but actually disappeared, only to reappear more than 200 miles away before whisking back to its original location. There is, of course, no evidence or research to support this story, merely the claims of people whose identities often went unproven. It’s a fun idea for a movie, but that’s about it.

15. The Jews Run the World

The Protocols of the Elders of Zion first appeared in print in Russia in the early 1900s, positing that Jews planned to achieve world domination. However, Hitler took the theory to a whole other level, blaming Jews for all of mankind's evils.


Though more conspiracies will surely develop as history unfolds new mysteries, secrets and questions for mankind to ponder, for now, check out my Conspiracy Theories Defined Definitions Page, which describes some of these conspiracy theories in more detail. Also, make sure you subscribe to, where I will keep you informed of new conspiracies as they are uncovered and warn you of any new approaching dangers.

Which conspiracies do you believe in? Which do you think are bogus? My readers and I would love to know what you think! Let us know with a comment, bellow.

The Protocols, purportedly the text of a secret Jewish plan to establish world supremacy, is a book that has enjoyed sustained and vibrant life despite the fact that it has long been discredited as a forgery. First published in Russia in 1903, it became a keystone first of Russian anti-Semitism and then of the Nazi movement. Today, it is still sold all over the world and appears to have found new footholds on the Internet. Of all the anti-Jewish writing, it is perhaps The Protocols that has empowered anti-Semites the most.

GOP Conspiracy of the Wealthy

Most of us have known for a while, that Republicans represent the rich, famous and powerful.

But now they have bluntly, blatantly and shamelessly shoved it into the faces of the poor and middle class.

Why else would the Republicans care about lower taxes for the wealthy? They really don't expect us to believe that it would hurt our economy if the rich had to pay a few more dollars in taxes! We may be poor, but we aren't stupid!

The cutoff was at $200,000 yearly income for individuals ($250,000 for couples), for tax relief to "not so fortunate Americans" as part of the stimulus relief package. $250,000 is more than the average American makes in 5 years and more than a lower income American makes in their lifetime (well, in 20 years)!

Still, Republicans advocate more tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires because that is who comprises or funds their party.

The GOP has stuck its feet in the faces of the American people by holding up unemployment benefits, and all other legislation for that matter, until they get more tax cuts for their filthy-rich supporters.

The GOP has held millions of American workers and their families hostage until everyone cries "uncle" and agrees to pay $60 billion in tax handouts for millionaires.

More than a million jobless American workers have lost their only source of income, and the number will rise to 2 million by Christmastime if the GOP doesn't get its way.

Some say the White House hasn't fought hard enough to end the tax giveaways for the super-rich. That may be so. But who created this problem? The GOP. Who is fighting so hard for the top 2 percent that they don't care about putting the unemployed and their kids out in the street in the dead of winter, or taking holiday presents out of kids' stockings? Republicans. Yes, that's the harsh real-world reality.

I don't want to turn this into a political blog, but this is a conspiracy. In fact, the collaboration of the Republican party is perhaps the biggest conspiracy in history, ever.

What do you think? Should the tax cut be for everybody, or just for those making $250,000 per year or less?

Wikileaks Reactions from the US and around the World

Our Nation is Divided!

I was going to write an article about Wikileaks, but as I sat down to start writing I came across so may headlines from major news media to amateur bloggers from every corner of the earth, that I decided it would be literal overkill.

However, reading the enormous variety of reactions to the debacle, I found that the reactions to the leak to be as interesting as the contents of the released documents. There is no mistake; our nation is divided! 

The backlash of Wikileaks will change our country, even the world! Regardless of the contents of the documents, the reactions of our politicians and leaders will have us re-thinking and examining our views, priorities and policies. Our 1st Amendment, Freedom of the Press, and with that our personal freedoms are in danger of sanctions and limitations.

For this reason, I have decided to present to you some of these different views surrounding the implications and fallout of the biggest intelligence blunter of our time.

Without further ado, I bestow on to you the headlines and summaries representing these reactions from around the world:

Pro Wikileaks

Wikileaks are patriotic - The Examiner

Wikileaks are true heroes - The Well Timed Period

Wikileaks are the most important truthsayers of our time - Comment Factory

Wikileaks are fucking heroes. - Godlike Productions, Forum

The papers are doing their job — reporting the news. - Raw Story

Wikileaks are the only outlets for the truth when it comes to what really was going on in these illegal wars. Without these individuals, the american people would have continued on in utter ignorance of what was going on in iraq and afghanistan. Scarborough made a comment that these leaks are going to make other countries not want to talk or deal with the u. S, and not have their conversation end up in the new york times. Maybe if they were not involved in illegal activity or trying to topple legitimate governments, then they would have nothing to worry about. It has always been my point of view, that if you are scared to share what it is you are talking about or doing in our name, than what you are doing cannot possibly be in my, or the american peoples best interest. Fresh food that lasts from efoods direct. - Infowars

Wikileaks are free agents acting on a desire to crack official secrecy and broaden the horizons of public awareness. - CS Monitor

Wikileaks are probably the greatest heroes the world has at the moment. - MSNBC Newsvine

Anti Wikileaks

Wikileaks are being manipulated by interested parties that want to either complicate our relationship with other governments or want to undermine some governments, because some of these items that are being emphasized and have surfaced are very pointed. And i wonder whether, in fact, there aren't some operations internationally, intelligence services, that are feeding stuff to wikileaks, because it is a unique opportunity to embarrass us, to embarrass our position, but also to undermine our relations with particular governments. - PBS

Wikileaks are unsafe - CBS News, Face the Nation

Wikileaks are a bunch of terrorists... - Canada Free Press

Wikileaks are terrorists - we need to take them out. - Ron Paul, Forum

Wikileaks are “really bad guys” oversimplifies a complex matter. While they aren't bad guys, the road to hell was paved with good intentions, and i'm afraid they've paved the road to hell for us diplomatic efforts. In the inevitable war between transparency and state secrets, neither should be automatically subordinate to the other without sober consideration for the consequences. -

Wikileaks are publishing very sensitive documents that will impact our national security. In other words, a black eye to go with our president's fat lip. The question is: "how did wikileaks come by these confidential documents?" tomorrow, unless we see the wholesale purging of our intelligence community from the topmost officials to the bottom of the organizational chart, we'll know this document dump is being accomplished in collusion with the obama administration. Therefore, we are witnessing treason. Let's see what tomorrow brings. - Politico

Wikileaks are dangerous and gosh knows what is going to happen. As if we didn't already have enough on our plates. - Erictric

Wikileaks are a us/israeli propaganda sham - David Icke, Forum

The larger point one might draw from this episode is that democracies like ours have a vital need for secrecy in the conduct of foreign affairs and war. And Wikileaks, which appears to be beyond the reach of our laws, is engaging in an assault on democratic governance. Our best hope of avoiding future such episodes is to do a better job of protecting secrets. Part of this involves tighter security and harsher penalties for those who leak vital secrets. Another no less important part is tackling our government's penchant for overclassification and mis-classification, which breeds disrespect for legitimate secrecy and creates a climate in which even leaks of highly sensitive information are taken as a norm. - National Review, Gabriel Schoenfeld


Wikileaks are not likely to reshape the region's political maneuverings. But they have further agitated the ill will between. And arab capitals over iran's nuclear enrichment program and its influence on militant groups in. The release of the cables has narrowed diplomatic wiggle room. Saudi king abdullah, quoted as urging the u. To attack iran, is likely to find it tough convincing tehran that he supports regional harmony. The leaks also reveal that arab countries have a deeper reliance on washington than they care to acknowledge to their largely anti-american populations. - LA Times,0,6095996.story

Ladies and gentlemen, WikiLeaks did not "leak" anything. I don't know who leaked it, but since there's no mention of Obama and his administration, the regime, in any of these tens of thousands of documents, I'd have to say somebody in the regime leaked 'em. But WikiLeaks did not leak 'em. They just published 'em. WikiLeaks is just a sponge, a useful idiot sitting there over in the UK and some disgruntled military guy in Afghanistan somehow has access to all of this and hands it over... Assange looks like a waif who should star in Peter Pan. - Rush Limbaugh

The truth is that we don't really know what Wikileaks is, or what the organization's ethics are, or why they've become such a stunningly good conduit of classified information. In the new asymmetrical journalism, it's not clear who is on what side or what the rules of engagement actually are. But the reason Wikileaks may have just changed the media is that we found out that it doesn't really matter. Their data is good, and that's what counts. - Atlantic, Alexis Madrigal

Wikileaks are another sign that the 21st century is becoming an age in which secrets are going the way of phone books, floppy disks, and music stores. For centuries, from families to corporations, reporters, military chiefs, financial executives, lawyers, and government officials, information withheld from the public was a source of power. Changing behaviors, from innocently posting publicly visible updates on relationship status, pictures, and activities on. , to what the state department calls the irresponsible actions of assange's wikileaks, are leading to an era in which keeping secrets may soon become obsolete. Toward a taxonomy of secrets. ,” considering the primary motivations for keeping secrets and their perceived real and illusory values. The report segments secrets into categories such as those kept to prevent embarrassment, exercise control, meet external regulation and legal requirements, maintain social cohesion, and promote tradition and momentum. - Fatherhood Channel

Wishy Washy

Wikileaks are traitors or engaging in sedition and should be punished for their release of these docs. What assange has done this past year in releasing raw intel and unvarnished truth , in quantity , straight from the sources within the halls of government and the military , is nothing short of revolutionary in charting history and exposing both war and geopolitical diplomacy for what it is. Previously ( with the exception of the pentagon papers ) this was a process that took the long slow excruciating course of " history " , and too often resulted in that history being doctored or disinformed. With wikileaks, we do not have to wait the customary 50 years to find out what was going on in the cloistered halls of the war rooms, board rooms, inner circles and oval offices. And we get the raw intel , not the refined or otherwise " sanitized" version. That the us government is running damage control with various other governments in advance of the leaks, and the fact julian assange is being ( likely ) framed on trumped up rape charges , is evidence enough to me that the governments fear the truth and fear being held accountable or even dragged into the bright sunshine so soon. Further, the trumped up claim by the us government that the latest wikileaks release puts people in harm's way is only so much bluster. The government cannot be serious about making those claims when it has so much blood on its hands, the loss of thousands of combat casualties in the senseless war in iraq, and tens of thousands of civilians and collateral damage that need never have occurred at all ---for what ? yes, maybe a few new folks are now in the crosshairs, but what about the thousands already lost and the thousands maybe saved the brutality ?. Personally , i don;t think there will be many if any damning accounts in the new release. It may turn out to be a tempest in a crock pot. Regardless, it gives and succinct view into the mechanisms of war and diplomacy. That alone makes the wikileaks worthwhile. Who can possibly be against the truth ? is that not what the us seeks to instill in our foreign involvements?---democracy based on an informed and enlightened populace ??. - MSNBC, Open Channel


Julian Assange has been labeled one of the most dangerous men on earth by many people, while others call him a hero. Whether his Wikileaks will further government, policy and intelligence transparency or cause the death of soldiers, spies and diplomats remains to be seen. But what is apparent, is the wide range of reactions to the leaks, ranging from outrage to hero worship. No matter how you look at it, it is clear that we are a nation divided amongst ourselves.

I would very much like your reactions in the form of comments. Tell me what you think. Should Wikileaks be shut down? Should Julian Assange be chared with treason?

Record Gun Sales as Americans Prepare for Financial Collapse

Americans are buying guns in record numbers as a reaction to the crumbling economy.

Trends are pinpointing to a fearful public struggling financially and preparing for potential mass civil unrest in the aftermath of a total economic collapse.

FBI records and Google Trends research shows that firearms purchases are at record highs, suggesting that Americans have rushed to protect themselves from the potential of civil unrest, crime, violence and possible shortages of food and other necessities in the event of a widespread financial meltdown.

Data released by the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) for the year reported 14,033,824 NICS Checks for the year of 2009, a 10 percent increase in gun purchases from the 12,709,023 reported in 2008.

“Once the economy gets bad, crime always goes up,” a police officer told the St. Pete Times, “People get desperate whenever things are not going the way they feel like they should be going, and they’ll do things they normally wouldn’t do.”

So far that is over 14,000,000 guns and 14,033,824,000 billions rounds of Ammo bought last year

To put it in perspective that is more guns than the combined active armies of the top 21 countries in the world. Assuming each gun buyer bought 1000 rounds of ammo for each purchase, and you and I know that it is way, way more than that, that would be easily 14,033,824,000+ billions rounds of ammo fired by USA gun owners.

Of the NICS background checks preformed less than and average .005% were denied, showing, overwhelmingly, that law abiding American citizens are the ones buying guns and that criminals are getting their guns elsewhere.

Although many Americans are seeking their security in precious metals, such as gold and silver, more are preparing for anarchy and chaos by going on food stamps and stockpiling essentials such as non-perishable food, water, gasoline and heating fuels.

Interest in silver coins is also surging, with Americans looking for more affordable ways to protect their increasingly devalued dollar savings with many unable to afford soar away gold prices.

“Just two years ago, silver coin sales were on the magnitude of 1 million units a month, now it’s 3 million units a month,” said Colas.

However, maybe they are barking up the wrong tree. You should check out a couple of small-cap gun makers. These companies have withstood the test of time and now, they’re enjoying more publicity and rising share prices…

For example, Sturm, Ruger & Co. (RGR) shares have enjoyed similar success this year. As of Friday morning, the stock is up almost 73% year-to-date (32% yoy). The firearms maker reported huge increases in revenue and backlog during Q4, and several analysts have upgraded this stock to a strong buy.

Smith & Wesson Holding Corp. (SWHC). This company has been making guns longer than any of us have been on the planet. After a tumultuous few years, this stock has posted a strong 2009. Shares are up about 80% since Jan.1.

So maybe you should be buying guns not only to protect yourself and your family, but also as an investment opportunity. As long as there is even a small, remote possibility that the economy will crash or that we are in danger of social unrest, guns will be a valuable asset. In more ways than one.

Note: Crime is at Record Lows!

This record year in firearms background checks show that Americans are solidly in-favor of exercising their civil right to Keep and Bear Arms. In a year were crime has reached an all time record low what is plainly clear is that more guns equal LESS CRIME!

Tip: Become a Federal Licensed Firearms Dealer

The following will not only provide detailed information on the process of becoming a firearms dealer, it will help save you money when buying firearms.

What Your Cell Phone is Telling Hackers, Thieves & Governments

How your cell phone can be secretly hijacked and used against you, by hackers, burglars, law enforcement and even our governments.

Imagine someone watching your every move, hearing everything you say and knowing where you are at every moment. If you have a cell phone, it is happening to you every day, even as you read these words. 

Smart phones do a lot these days: surf the Net, send e-mail, take photos... and spy on you.

The one thing they can do that phone companies don't tell you is, how your trusted cell phone spies on you. As long as you carry your phone, that handy gadget keeps a record of everywhere you go, including a record the government can then get from your telephone company anytime it so chooses.

This gives criminals information as to where you are, how long before you will be able to make it home and how long they have to burglarize your house. This gives hackers clues to use towards identity theft, bank fraud, account hijackings and other scams. As worrisome as these criminal activities may seem, they pale in scope and magnitude in the damage that potential law enforcement and government attacks could cause to you as a person.

Not long after the bush administration's warrant-less wiretapping scandal just a few short years ago, another federal snooping affair took place that received no public attention, because Bush's blunter diverted all the attention from the public eye. Whether this diversion was orchestrated or not, Federal prosecutors were seeking what seemed to be unusually sensitive records: internal data from telecommunications companies that showed the locations of their customers' cell phones, sometimes in real time, sometimes after the fact.

Those questions are now at the core of a constitutional clash between President Obama's Justice Department and civil libertarians alarmed by what they see as the government's relentless intrusion into the private lives of citizens. There are numerous other fronts in the privacy wars; such as the content of e-mails, for instance, and access to bank records and credit-card transactions. The Feds can now quietly, discretely get all that information at the drop of a hat.

But cell-phone tracking is among the more unsettling forms of government surveillance, invoking KGB like images of Big Brother secretly following your movements through the small device in your pocket.

How many of the owners of the country's 277 million cell phones even know that companies like AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint can track their devices in real time, all the time? Most don't have a clue. The tracking is possible because either the phones have tiny GPS units inside or each phone call is routed through towers that can be used to pinpoint a phone's location to areas as small as a city block. This capability to trace ever more precise cell-phone locations has been spurred by a Federal Communications Commission rule designed to help police and other emergency officers during 911 calls. But the FBI and other law-enforcement outfits have been obtaining more and more records of cell-phone locations -- without notifying the targets or getting judicial warrants establishing "probable cause," according to law-enforcement officials, court records, and telecommunication executives.  

There is little doubt that such records can be a powerful weapon for law enforcement.  Prosecutors say they need these records to trace the movements of suspected drug traffickers, human smugglers, even corrupt public officials.

Jack Killorin, who directs a federal task force in Atlanta combating the drug trade, says cell-phone records have helped his agents crack many cases, such as the brutal slaying of a DeKalb County sheriff: agents got the cell-phone records of key suspects -- and then showed that they were all within a one-mile area of the murder at the time it occurred, he said. In the fall of 2008, Killorin says, his agents were able to follow a Mexican drug-cartel truck carrying 2,200 kilograms of cocaine by watching in real time as the driver's cell phone "shook hands" with each cell-phone tower it passed on the highway. "It's a tremendous investigative tool," says Killorin. And not that unusual: "This is pretty workaday stuff for us."

However many federal magistrates, whose job is to sign off on search warrants and handle other routine court duties, were actually spooked by the requests. Some in New York, Pennsylvania, and Texas balked. Prosecutors "were using the cell phone as a surreptitious tracking device," said Stephen W. Smith, a federal magistrate in Houston. "And I started asking the U.S. Attorney's Office, 'What is the legal authority for this? What is the legal standard for getting this information?' " 

The law is unclear about how easy it should be for the government to get its hands on this locational data, which can reveal whether you've been going to church, attending a Tea Party rally, spending the night at a date's house or visiting a cancer-treatment center. A federal appeals court ruled last week that in some cases the government may need a search warrant. And while that's a step forward, it's not good enough. The rule should be that the government always needs a warrant to access your cell-phone records and obtain data about where you have been.

When you carry a cell phone, it is constantly sending signals about where you are. It "pings" nearby cell-phone towers about every seven seconds so it can be ready to make and receive calls. When it does, the phone is also telling the company that owns the towers where you are at that moment; data the company then stores away indefinitely. There is also a second kind of locational data that phone companies have, thanks to a GPS chip that is embedded in most smart phones now. This is even more accurate; unlike the towers, which can only pinpoint a general area where you may be, GPS can often reveal exactly where you are at any given moment within a matter of meters.

Spying on You in the Name of "Emergency Services"

In the name of improving emergency services, the Federal Communications Commission will require phone companies to meet several benchmarks in 2012 for how closely they can pinpoint a caller's location. "About 90% of Americans are walking around with a portable tracking device all the time, and they have no idea," says Christopher Calabrese, a lawyer with the American Civil Liberties Union, that they could be or are being tracked by federal, state or local law enforcement agencies.

Not surprisingly, law enforcement has found this sort of data extremely handy. Prosecutors are increasingly using cell-phone records to show that a suspect was near the scene of a crime, or not where he claimed to be.

The federal government's position is that it should be able to get most of this data if it decides it is relevant to an investigation, with no need for a search warrant. If the government needs a warrant, it would have to show a judge evidence that there was probable cause to believe that the cell-phone user committed a crime — an important level of protection. Without this requirement, the government can get locational data pretty much anytime it wants.

It is not hard to imagine that the government could also one day use cell-phone data to stifle dissent. Cell-phone records could tell them who attended an anti government rally. It could also tell them who is going into the opposition party's headquarters or into the home of someone they have questions about. Cell-phone data may be the most efficient way ever invented for a government to spy on its people — since people are planting the devices on themselves and even paying the monthly bills. The KGB never had anything like it.

The U.S. government already appears to be sweeping up a lot of data from completely innocent people. The ACLU recently told Congress of a case in which, while looking for data on a suspect, the FBI apparently used a dragnet approach and took data on another 180 people. The FBI has said that if it does happen to gather data on innocent people in the course of conducting an investigation, it keeps that information for as long as 20 years.

Last week, the Philadelphia-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit pushed back. A federal magistrate judge, in a good and strong decision, had ruled that the government must always get a warrant if it wants cell-phone data. The appeals court scaled that back a bit, ruling that magistrate judges have the power to require the government to get a warrant, depending on the facts of the particular case.

The fight over cell-phone tracking is similar to one now going on in the courts over GPS devices, specifically whether the government needs a warrant to place a GPS device on someone's car. Cell-phone tracking is of far bigger consequence, however, because there is a limit to how many GPS devices police are going to put on cars. Nine out of 10 of us have cell phones that will do the tracking for the government.

The House of Representatives has been holding hearings on this issue and related ones, and a Senate hearing next week is likely to consider it further. It is time for Congress to act. It should amend the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (introduced so well in the blockbuster movie Enemy of the State, starring Will Smith, Gene Hackman and Jon Voight as far back as the 1990's) to make clear that information from our cell phones about where we are and where we have been is deeply private and that without a search warrant, the government cannot have it. In theory!

But don't forget that this is the United States of America. While there is no better place on earth to live, you are never any more free than what "They" allow you to believe you are at any given moment. All you can do is live out your life, raise your family and find some form of some happiness.

You may try to affect the change that is important to you in the short time you are here. It is certainly worthwhile (and patriotic) to be distrustful of Government, but I refuse to live under the thumb or watchful eye of my government. The first step in making them understand they work for us is to just refuse to play the game or let them dictate the Narrative in the first place.

Google is a prime example of why you have a lot more to fear from Corporate America than you ever did from the .gov. That is saying a lot. Corporations are a lot more free to abuse and damage you than the .gov will. A day is coming where every 'questionable' thing you ever did on the Internet or bought with a credit/debit card will be made available for a fee. At first it will be used for pre-employment screenings and to expose political enemies, eventually it will be offered to anyone for a small fee.

Tips on How to Protect Yourself from Cell Phone Espionage 

Keep a close eye on your cell phone so that others never get an opportunity to download information such as spy software when you're not looking. It's important to install a security password on your phone to restrict anyone else from using it.

And while some Spyware marketers claim their products can be used on any make and model of cell phone, high-end cell phones that include Internet access and online capability are particularly vulnerable to Spyware tapping. To limit the ability of others to download certain types of spyware onto your phone, choose a cell phone that is not Internet-accessible.

Remove the battery from your cell phone when it's not being used and, for sensitive phone calls, he suggests making them on a newly-purchased cell phone that comes with a pre-paid month-to-month service plan.

Based on my investigation, here are some subtle, but obvious signs that could suggest your cell phone is being secretly tapped: 
  • Cell phone battery is warm even when your phone has not been used
  • Cell phone lights up at unexpected times, including occasions when phone is not in use
  • Unexpected beep or click during phone conversation

You could be doing the Cell Phone Espionage Yourself
