Good Guys taking JP Morgan out of the Silver Manipulation Game.

It was just a matter of time before the Good Guys took JP Morgan out of the Silver Manipulation Game. News out today that the UK is looking into the LME warehousing of metal in London...the heart of the physical metal manipulation operations.

Lawmakers Ask Watchdog About LME Warehousers
This will be followed up by the US regulatory officials actually DOING the job they are supposed to do. REALLY!! When you ask? My guess is by late July after Commissioner Wenjet is approved. He will vote with Gensler and Chilton.
The significance of this should not be underestimated. These rules have the power to handcuff the banking cabal enough such that they lose CONTROL of our "free markets". Make no mistake. Un-backed fiat money CANNOT SURVIVE without total and complete computer price control of commodities.
We are inching towards the global destruction of ALL un-backed fiat currencies. This will take down all paper and electronic "ASSETS" and clean the slate for a return to a gold/silver standard in the US. Of course, Ron Paul would be a "shoe-in" for President after this happens...FINALLY!
Keep an eye out for US legal indictments of JP Morgan for market manipulation in SILVER but it might come from the FBI before the anything the CFTC chimes in.
The Bad Guys are running scared and may press the Global Financial Meltdown Button at any moment to create a cover of chaos. Stay indoors with your physical silver close at hand.
May the Road you choose be the Right Road.

Health - Why To Stop Taking Antacids

Why To Stop Taking Antacids

Do you like games?

Hope so, because I want to play...

Imagine you have a leaky basement and you call a company to come over and fix it.

The company rep says they can put special stuff on the cracks in your foundation that will seal them up and stop the leaks. It's going to be costly, but you figure it's worth it to preserve the value of your house.

So you bite the bullet and have it done. But instead of having your problem solved, the cracks in your foundation are WORSE than they ever were. Plus, you're now getting mold growth and bug infestation too.

Would you be angry, scared, bewildered, frustrated?

How could you not be?!

Well, the same type of thing can be said about antacids.

You see, what you need to understand is not only do antacids do absolutely nothing to address the true cause of excess stomach acid, but they make the problem even worse AND cause OTHER problems too!

Here's the truth about antacids:

How antacids fall flat on their faces

Antacids are designed to "work" by either neutralizing the acid in your stomach or by trying to stop your stomach from secreting it altogether.

This is not only's very, very dangerous.

Because your body NEEDS hydrochloric acid (HCl) to break down protein foods that you eat. So right from the get-go antacids destroy your digestion.

That means the whole premise behind them makes absolutely no sense. How can they claim to "help" if they impair such a crucial bodily function as digestion?

That's like saying a medication that prevents you from breathing is a good treatment for asthma attacks.

Risk of infections

Plus, being without HCl can be downright deadly. HCl sterilizes your food by destroying dangerous bacteria and microbes that may be in it. So without HCl, you are taking a big risk at getting very, very sick from tainted food.

Trouble further down the road

Now, as antacids are ruining your digestion, your problems don't end in your stressed-out stomach.

Because foods that are not broken down in the stomach like they need to be don't glide easily through the intestines like they should either.

What happens then?

Gas, bloating, constipation and diarrhea, that's what.

So the fire in your chest may be temporarily gone, but now you're looking for laxatives, anti-diarrheals or an out-of-the-way corner where you can blast off and not offend others.

Ooops! -- here's another one

Now, if all that isn't enough for you, here's yet ANOTHER problem directly linked to antacid use.

Vitamin B12 deficiency.

You see, stomach acid (HCl) is required for the production of intrinsic factor, which is needed for vitamin B12 absorption.

So if you've been using antacids for a while, chances are excellent that you are deficient in this crucial nutrient.

Some of the symptoms of B12 deficiency are:

Confusion, memory problems
Fatigue, weakness
Loss of appetite
Rapid heart rate
Shortness of breath
Sore tongue and mouth
Tingling, numbness, and/or burning in the feet, hands, arms, and legs

Since these symptoms are commonly seen with other conditions, diagnosing a vitamin B12 deficiency can be difficult.

Plus symptoms don't always show up right away. Since people's bodies can store vitamin B12 reserves in the liver for up to 3-5 years, deficiencies can take a long time to become apparent.

Vitamin B12 is definitely something you don't want to be lacking. B12 is necessary for normal red blood cell formation and transportation of oxygen, tissue and cellular repair, and DNA synthesis.

So what do you do now?

If you are now convinced that antacids are about as good for you as arsenic, that's good.

But you may ask, "What should I do now about my heartburn/GERD/acid reflux?"

The answer starts with a decision you make 3-5 times a day, every day...


Overproduction of HCl results from one thing only -- your food choices -- as in eating foods and meals that are difficult for your body to break down.

You see, due to their complex nature, it's VERY difficult for your system to break down fast food, processed food and other complex meals that are so typical in our society today.

When you eat this way and your stomach senses that foods aren't breaking down like they should, it tries to secrete more and more acid to get the job done. Eventually you end up with a bubbling blob of poorly digested muck, fermenting and putrefying, and a pool of excess acid in your stomach.

That's the same acid that rises up in your throat...especially when you lie down.

So to REALLY end stomach problems and say goodbye to antacids for good, you need to get your digestion humming and fight the effects of antacid use by doing these 2 things:

1) Make your meals work with--not against--your body

There's no getting around it -- THE most effective way to make your digestive system work like it's supposed to is to eat easily digestable, low acid producing meals.

Now, before you scoff at that thought, get this through your head: Eating right does NOT have to mean deprivation, giving up foods you love or existing on rabbit food.

Easy to digest, delicious food is the whole idea behind what I teach in the Great Taste No Pain system.

In the GTNP system, I show you how to structure meals that your body can easily break down. They may be a little different from the meals you're used to, but I promise that you'll still love your foods.

And it's easy to do. Before long, you won't even have to think about it -- it will become second nature for you.

Great Taste No Pain really delivers on the "great taste" promise. In the recipe book part of the system, you'll get 112 of the most delicious dishes you've ever had, including hearty soups, savory stews, moist breads, fresh, tasty salads and even luscious desserts!

You will be amazed at how quickly you'll see a difference in how you feel... and you'll never want to go back to your "old way" of eating again. Honest.

2) Supplement with Vitamin B12

Don't take a chance at possibly being deficient in vitamin B12 due to antacid use, especially when it's so easy to make sure you have enough.

You just need to make sure you supplement with a quality source that your body can use.

Studies show that B12 absorption through your digestive tract (i.e.: when you swallow vitamin tablets or capsules) can be as low as less than half of 1%!

So up until recently, people who wanted a sure-fire dose of vitamin B12 would need to see their doctor for B12 shot.

But not any more...

Because there is Hydroxaden 2.5, the most potent B12 product available anywhere.

Hydroxaden 2.5 is a convenient sublingual vitamin B12 spray that gives you a daily dose of the best form of vitamin B12 (hydroxocobalamin).

Hydroxocobalamin has been shown to raise B12 levels higher and faster than other forms of B12, and it lasts longer in your body, too.

Just five little sprays under your tongue each day give you a full 2.5 mg. of B12 that gets into your blood stream quickly to boost your energy, help sharpen your mind and enhance your immune system, among other things.

Let antacid use and ALL of its harmful effects be a thing of the past for you.

With the powerful combination of Great Taste No Pain and Hydroxaden 2.5, you'll be on your way to saying goodbye to antacids for GOOD, and feeling GREAT naturally.

To your health,

Sherry Brescia

The Patriot Act: When Truth Becomes Treason

The Patriot Act: When Truth Becomes Treason
May 24th, 2011
By Susan Lindauer
, former Asset covering Iraq & Libya and the second non-Arab American indicted on the Patriot Act

Posted Image

Many Americans think they understand the dangers of the Patriot Act, which Congress has vowed to extend 4 more years in a vote later this week. Trust me when I say, Americans are not nearly frightened enough.

Ever wonder why the truth about 9/11 never got exposed? Why Americans don't have a clue about leadership fraud surrounding the War on Terror? Why Americans don't know if the 9/11 investigation was really successful? Why the Iraqi Peace Option draws a blank? Somebody has known the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden--- or his grave—for the past 10 years. But nobody's talking to the people.

In significant part, that's because of the Patriot Act--- a law that equates free speech with sedition. It's got a big agenda, with 7,000 pages of Machiavellian code designed to interrupt individual questioning of government policy. In this brave new world, free speech under the Bill of Rights effectively has been declared a threat to government controls for maintaining stability. And the Patriot Act has become the premiere weapon to attack whistle blowers and dissidents who challenge the comfort of political leaders hiding inconvenient truths from the public. It's all the rage on Capitol Hill, as leaders strive to score TV ratings, while demogauging their "outstanding leadership performance" on everything from national security to environmental policy.

Truth has Become Treason

But wait---Congress assures us the Patriot Act only targets foreigners, who come to our shores seeking to destroy our way of life through violent, criminal acts. Good, law abiding Americans have nothing to fear. The Patriot Act restricts its powers of "roving wiretaps" and warrantless searches to international communications among "bad guys." Congress has sworn, with hand on heart, it's only purpose is breaking down terrorist cells and hunting out "lone wolf" mad men.

That's what they told you, right? And you believed them? You trust the government. Well, that was your first mistake. With regards to the Patriot Act, it's a fatal one. Would the government lie to you? You betcha! And they have.

The Patriot Act reaches far beyond terrorism prevention. In my home state of Maryland, State Police invoked the Patriot Act to run surveillance on the Chesapeake Climate Action Network dedicated to wind power, recycling and protection of the Chesapeake Bay. They infiltrated the DC Anti War Network, suggesting the group might be a front for "white supremacists," and Amnesty International, claiming to investigate "civil rights abuses." Opponents of the death penalty also got targeted (in case they got violent).

Bottom line: truth tellers who give Americans too much insight on any number of issues are vulnerable to a vast arsenal of judicial weapons typically associated with China or Mynamar. In the Patriot Act, the government has created a powerful tool to hunt out free thinking on the left or right. It doesn't discriminate. Anyone who opposes government policy is at risk

How do I know all this? Because I was the second non-Arab American ever indicted on the Patriot Act. My arrest defied all expectations about the law. I was no terrorist plotting to explode the Washington Monument. Quite the opposite, I had worked in anti-terrorism for almost a decade, covering Iraq and Libya, Yemen, Egypt and Malaysia at the United Nations. At the instruction of my CIA handler, I had delivered advance warnings about the 9/11 attack to the private staff of Attorney General John Ashcroft and the Office of Counter-Terrorism in August, 2001. FBI wire taps prove that I carried details of a comprehensive peace framework with Iraq up and down the hallowed corridors of Capitol Hill for months before the invasion, arguing that War was totally unnecessary.

I delivered those papers to Democrats and Republicans alike; to my own second cousin, White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card; and to Secretary of State Colin Powell, who lived next door to my CIA handler. Gratis of the Patriot Act, we had the manila envelope and my hand written notes to Secretary Powell, dated a week before his infamous speech at the United Nations. My papers argued that no WMDs would be found inside Iraq, and that the peace framework could achieve all U.S. objectives without firing a shot.

In short, I was an Asset who loudly opposed War with Iraq, and made every effort to correct the mistakes in assumptions on Capitol Hill.

Then I did the unthinkable. I phoned the offices of Senator Trent Lott and Senator John McCain, requesting to testify before a brand new, blue ribbon Commission investigating Pre-War Intelligence. Proud and confident of my efforts, I had no idea Congress was planning to blame "bad intelligence" for the unpopular War.

Over night I became Public Enemy Number One on Capitol Hill.

Thirty days later I awoke to hear FBI agents pounding on my door. My nightmare on the Patriot Act lasted 5 years--- Four years after my arrest, the Court granted me one morning of evidentiary testimony by two supremely credible witnesses. Parke Godfrey verified my 9/11 warnings under oath. Otherwise, I never got my day in Court.

The Patriot Act's Arsenal to Stop Free Speech

If you care about America and the traditions of freedom, whether you're progressive or conservative, you should be angry about this law.

First come the warrantless searches and FBI tracking surveillance. My work in anti-terrorism gave me no protection. I got my first warrantless search after meeting an undercover FBI agent to discuss my support for free elections in Iraq and my opposition to torture and sexual humiliation of Iraqi detainees. (Sorry guys, body wires don't lie.)

If truth tellers don't get the message to shut their mouths, the Justice Department ratchets up the pressure. Defendants face secret charges, secret evidence and secret grand jury testimony. Throughout five years of indictment, my attorneys and I never got to read a single FBI interview or grand jury statement. Under the Patriot Act, the whistleblower/defendant has no right to know who has accused him or her of what criminal activities, or the dates of the alleged offenses, or what laws got broken.

Of course, I was able to piece together my activities. I knew that "sometime in October, 2001" an Iraqi diplomat gave me the English translation of a book on depleted uranium, which showed how cancer rates and birth defects had spiked in Iraqi children.

And I was quite certain that on October 14, 1999, an Iraqi diplomat asked me how to channel major financial contributions to the Presidential Campaign of George Bush and Dick Cheney. The Justice Department got the date from me, since I reported my conversation immediately to my Defense Intelligence handler, Paul Hoven.

It's unlikely the grand jury knew that, since the Justice Department has the prerogative to keep a grand jury in the dark. In this brave new world, a grand jury can be compelled to consider indictments carrying 10 years or more in prison, without the right to review evidence, or otherwise determine whether an individual's actions rise to the level of criminal activity at all.

That's just the beginning. Once Congress scores an indictment against a political opponent, the Justice Department can force Defense attorneys to undergo protracted security clearances, while the whistle blower cum defendant waits in prison--- usually in solitary confinement or the SHU. After the security clearance, prosecutors have an ironclad right to bar attorneys from communicating communications from the prosecution to the defendant, on threat of disbarment, stiff fines or prison sentence.

Scared yet? Once you get to trial, the situation gets much worse. The Patriot Act declares that a prosecutor has no obligation to show evidence of criminal activity to a jury at all. And the Defense can be denied the right to argue a rebuttal to those secret charges, because it requires speculation that might mislead the jury—or might expose issues that the government considers, well, secret. After all that a Judge can instruct a jury that the prosecution regards the secret evidence as sufficient to merit conviction on the secret charges. The Jury can be barred from considering the lack of evidence in weighing whether to convict.

Think I'm exaggerating? You would be wrong. That's what happened to me. All of it—with one major glitch. All of this presumes the whistle blower's lucky enough to get a trial. I was denied mine, though I fought vigorously for my rights. Instead, citing the Patriot Act, I got thrown in prison on a Texas military base without so much as a hearing—and threatened with indefinite detention and forcible drugging, to boot.

Americans are not nearly afraid enough.

Neither is Congress. As of this week, members of Congress should be very afraid. Anyone who votes to extend the Patriot Act should expect to pack their bags in 2012. They will be targeted for defeat. Above all, the words "freedom" and "Constitution" will never appear in their campaigns without suffering extreme public scorn—never, ever again.

Congress Retirements

Subject: 86GPh: Congressional

Political eFriends:

For some time (months/years) I've been getting emails about the congressional policy of retiring with full benefits after serving only one term. In the current American Legion magazine there is an article that says:

"In reality, there is no such thing as retiring with an immediate, full-salary pension after only one term in office. There is no special plan for senators and representatives. Congressional retirement plans are virtually identical to the retirement plans for all other federal employees.

"Anyone in Congress must work for at least five years to be eligible for a pension, which they can't draw until they are 62. If they have worked for 10 or more years, they can draw a reduced pension as early as 55.

"I invite readers to educate themselves on this subject by reading Congressional Research Service Report RL30631, found at "
[I have pasted the text on the first page of the above website. AlanB]

Retirement Benefits for Members of Congress

Released: January 03, 2011
Order Code: RL30631


Prior to 1984, neither federal civil service employees nor members of Congress paid taxes to Social Security, nor were they eligible for Social Security benefits. Members of Congress and other federal employees were instead covered by a separate pension plan called the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS). The 1983 amendments to the Social Security Act (P.L. 98-21) required federal employees first hired after 1983 to participate in Social Security. These amendments also required all members of Congress to participate in Social Security as of January 1, 1984, regardless of when they first entered Congress. Because the CSRS was not designed to coordinate with Social Security, Congress directed the development of a new retirement plan for federal workers. The result was the Federal Employees' Retirement System Act of 1986 (P.L. 99-335). Members of Congress first elected in 1984 or later are covered automatically under the Federal Employees' Retirement System (FERS), unless they decline this coverage. Those who already were in Congress when Social Security coverage went into effect could either remain in CSRS or change their coverage to FERS. Members are now covered under one of four different retirement arrangements: . CSRS and Social Security; . The "CSRS Offset" plan, which includes both CSRS and Social Security, but with CSRS contributions and benefits reduced by Social Security contributions and benefits; . FERS and Social Security; or . Social Security alone. Congressional pensions, like those of other federal employees, are financed through a combination of employee and employer contributions. All members pay Social Security payroll taxes equal to 6.2% of the Social Security taxable wage base ($106,800 in 2011). Members enrolled in FERS also pay 1.3% of full salary to the Civil Service Retirement and Disability Fund. In 2011, members covered by CSRS Offset pay 1.8% of the first $106,800 of salary, and 8.0% of salary above this amount, into the Civil Service Retirement and Disability Fund. Under both CSRS and FERS, members of Congress are eligible for a pension at age 62 if they have completed at least five years of service. Members are eligible for a pension at age 50 if they have completed 20 years of service, or at any age after completing 25 years of service. The amount of the pension depends on years of service and the average of the highest three years of salary. By law, the starting amount of a member's retirement annuity may not exceed 80% of his or her final salary. As of October 1, 2009, 455 retired members of Congress were receiving federal pensions based fully or in part on their congressional service. Of this number, 275 had retired under CSRS and were receiving an average annual pension of $69,012. A total of 180 members had retired with service under both CSRS and FERS or with service under FERS only. Their average annual pension was $40,140 in 2009.
