I am thinking that the GOP may be in on this now. If they are not, there should be no objection to a do-over. ( They probably have the article already for that one, too) ….Romney by a landslide, right? This is definitely crooked as can be!!! Nevada needs a Do- Over!! Let our vote count!! Please record with your camcorder before they remove!! Published for educational purposes- the “Sheeple” need an education. This is NOT looking good for Mitt Romney. I think Newt will find this very interesting- to know that he & the others conceded on Thursday 2/2/12? I bet he forgot he did that, Ron Paul & Santorum, too. They have short memories ;)

Indiana GOP Secretary of State guilty of voter fraud

ndiana Secretary of State Charlie White (R) was convicted of six felony charges Saturday morning, including three counts of voter fraud, according to The Indianapolis Star.

White’s case stemmed from providing incorrect information about where he lived while campaigning for secretary of state in 2009 and 2010. He claimed that he resided with his ex-wife in the east side of the town of Fishers but actually lived on the opposite side of town with his then fiancee, which is outside of the Fishers Town Council.

According the jury, White broke the law using his ex-wife’s address while voting in the May 2010 primary and continuing to take a salary from the district.

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels (R) named White’s chief deputy Jerry Bonnet as interim secretary of state. White still has the opportunity to regain his seat if a judge downgrades his Class D felonies to misdemeanor charges during his sentencing, with a date yet to be determined.

White potentially faces six months to three years in prison for each count.

FDA’s New Claim: “Your Body Is a Drug—and We Have the Authority to Regulate It!”

In another outrageous power-grab, FDA says your own stem cells are drugs—and stem cell therapy is interstate commerce because it affects the bottom line of FDA-approved drugs in other states!

 

We wish this were a joke, but it’s the US Food and Drug Administration’s latest claim in its battle with a Colorado clinic over its Regenexx-SD™ procedure, a non-surgical treatment for people suffering from moderate to severe joint or bone pain using adult stem cells.

 

The FDA asserts in a court document that it has the right to regulate the Centeno-Schultz Clinic for two reasons:

 

  1. Stem cells are drugs and therefore fall within their jurisdiction. (The clinic argues that stem cell therapy is the practice of medicine and is therefore not within the FDA’s jurisdiction!)
  2. The clinic is engaging in interstate commerce and is therefore subject to FDA regulation because any part of the machine or procedure that originates outside Colorado becomes interstate commerce once it enters the state. Moreover, interstate commerce is substantially affected because individuals traveling to Colorado to have the Regenexx procedure would “depress the market for out-of-state drugs that are approved by FDA.”

 

We discussed the very ambiguous issue of interstate commerce last September—it’s an argument the FDA frequently uses when the basis for their claim is otherwise lacking. As we noted then, the FDA holds that an “interstate commerce” test must be applied to all steps in a product’s manufacture, packaging, and distribution. This means that if any ingredient or tool used in the procedure in question was purchased out of state, the FDA would in its view have jurisdiction, just as they would if the final product had traveled across state lines.

 

This time the FDA just nakedly says in court documents that the agency wants to protect the market for FDA-approved drugs. No more beating around the bush—their agenda is right out in the open! This appears to be a novel interpretation of the Food Drug and Cosmetic Act (FD&C), as evidenced by the government’s failure to cite any judicial precedent for their argument.

 

The implication of the FDA’s interpretation of the law, if upheld by the court, would mean that all food, drugs, devices, and biologic or cosmetic products would be subject to FDA jurisdiction. The FDA is expanding its reach even to commerce within the state, which we argue is far beyond its jurisdiction, in order to protect drug company profits.

 

Last year we ran a two-part series on the current status of federal and state law—and FDA jurisdiction—and how it affects integrative treatments (part one and part two).

 

The Centeno-Schultz Clinic takes your blood, puts it into a centrifuge machine that separates the stem cells, and a doctor puts them back in your body where there is damaged tissue. The clinic has argued numerous times that stem cells aren’t drugs because they are components of the patient’s blood from his or her own body.

 

The FDA says otherwise: “Stem cells, like other medical products that are intended to treat, cure, or prevent disease, generally require FDA approval before they can be marketed. At this time, there are no licensed stem cell treatments.” There they go again, saying that components of your body are drugs and they have the authority to regulate them! It’s the only way the agency can claim that adult stem cell therapy is within FDA’s purview.

 

However, the agency seems to be of two minds. When ESPN magazine was doing a story on stem cell treatments, the FDA stated that US policy is to allow the injection of stem cells that are treated with “minimal manipulation,” which federal regulations define as “processing that does not alter the relevant biological characteristics of cells or tissues”—which is certainly the case with the Regenexx clinic.

 

Despite this policy, FDA has been attacking the clinic for the past four years. They have tried injunctions and demanded inspections in their attempts to make the company bend; this court battle is merely the latest salvo.

 

The primary role of adult stem cells in a living organism is to maintain and repair the tissue in which they are found. The hard part has been to get enough of them. But new technology is giving doctors the ability to obtain more stem cells from a patient than previously thought possible, which is why we’re now seeing new treatments. Blood, fat, or tissue is withdrawn from the patient, stem cells are obtained using one of these new processes, and the cells are injected back into the patient where they can repair the patient’s tissue.

 

Gov. Rick Perry received this kind of stem cell therapy. We and others noted that the governor’s defense of freedom of healthcare choice when it came to his own treatment was starkly at odds with his directive to administer HPV vaccines to young girls against their own (and their parents’) wishes. It’s also at odds with his support for some of the most egregious witch-hunters on the Texas State Medical Board, which he appoints.

 

Behind Perry’s blatant inconsistency and the latest FDA attempted power grab lies the same problem: a medical system run by special interests under the leadership of the US government, the same government that is supposed to represent “we the people.”

Why I Have Backed Ron Paul For More Than 20 Years

Even an Oxymoron can understand this video montage that carries Ron Paul’s “Liberty” thread during the past two decades?

Ask where was the media? And you will see proof that the media, as well as our elected representatives are all “in on it.” In on what? In on the rape and pillage of the American dream is what!

Cong. Paul points it out so publicly in this video montage. Show it around and talk about it, even to brain dead friends, and we all have plenty of those.

I need not write a lot here, because the video says it all. Hell’s bells even Chris Matthews can understand this. There is no American dream; never really was—counterfeit money; fat cat speculators using it for war and bombs; accompanied by unpatriotic acts by Congress.

Also replacing information with propaganda for evil in the information age. Surely Americans suffer enmasse from the Stockholm syndrome. If there is a cure, it might be found in this video montage. My great hope is that this Ron Paul Truth telling will result in the destruction of the two party dialectic that has served the liars and moneychangers so well.

That may be the best result for the Ron Paul Revolution; any vote for Ron is a vote against the bastards that did this.

‘Government Has Our Best Interests At Heart!’ Oh, Shut Up

Thomas Woods

Thomas E. Woods, Jr., is the New York Times bestselling author of 11 books. A senior fellow of the Ludwig von Mises Institute, Woods holds a bachelor’s degree in history from Harvard and his master’s, M.Phil., and Ph.D. from Columbia University.

This is simply unbelievable.

For a long time, a very wealthy friend of mine who is an extremely good money manager had been sharing his IRA portfolio, and every buy or sell action he took, with anyone who asked to be added to his email list. He is the kind of guy the EMH (efficient markets hypothesis) assures us cannot exist, who pretty consistently and very impressively beat the market. His lifetime return on the account is in excess of 40% annually, and that includes the years of the recent financial crisis.

So if you wanted to invest exactly the same way he was, you could easily do so.

Not anymore. Now the government has chosen to protect us from people like him. From his email to friends:

This list began many years ago and grew out of my desire to help others who are friends but are not professional investors.  The list started as a small group of friends and family but over time I added names as people asked for assistance.  My thought process was that I would be doing a good deed. I figured from a “karma” point of view that I would be rewarded for sharing my best thinking.  I did not guarantee success, but I guaranteed honesty in what I am doing .  That is, I would report every single trade.  Then each person could make their own decision whether to follow me or not.   Those who have read Clausen’s The Richest Man In Babylon know that the simple key to growing wealth is to save 10% of what you make and invest it the way rich people invest.  I never contributed more than $40,000 per year to the account and it is now over $6.0 million.  My compound annual return from inception in 2003 is 42.76% and my return for the last five years (including 2011 down) is 52.96%.  So it has performed well.

 

 

I never imagined that sending out this list hurt anybody, or in any way conflicted with my role as a the manager of an investment fund.  I was not charging for advice and I was not selling anything.  To use an analogy, it was as if I knew how to cook and I was sending out good recipes to friends.   I made no implied or other commitment.  I often advised people to seek their own counsel.  Everyone who was on the list was an adult.  In fact, many of the people on the list had expressed an interest in investing in our fund but they did not qualify under the oppressive government rules which prevent average savers from investing $10,000 or $30,000 with me.  By law (a law that the big brokers and mutual funds love by the way) you can only invest in my fund if you are a “qualified investor” meaning you have assets of $1.5 million or earn $200,000 or both.   Theoretically this is to protect small investors, but in reality what it does is restrict them from doing what they want and forces them to either invest on their own (think sheep sitting down with wolves to discuss dinner) or to hand their money over to the mutual fund industry (think sheep giving themselves to wolves).   The LAW will not let you invest your money as you see fit.   All for your protection of course.  Personally, I think this is wrong.  You should have the freedom to make your own choices.

 

 

So, since people expressed an interest in investing with me but could not, I added them to my IRA list.  I tell you what I am doing, you make your own decisions, and no harm, no foul.  I have always been very careful to only disclose my trades after [our] Fund had taken its own positions.  In other words I have a fiduciary responsibility to put my investors first and I have always done so.  This has been clearly disclosed to the IRA list several times.  Unfortunately, with the passage of the Dodd Frank Bill and with the increasing size and success of [our firm] it now looks nearly certain that we are going to be subject to much stricter government regulation from the State of Massachusetts and the US Federal Government.  Ironically, these organizations could not catch Bernie Madoff when they had a concerned citizen (Markopolous) pointing out the fraud.  They have refused to prosecute the people at MF Global who stole customer money.  Yet, they find it important that they monitor all of my emails and instant messages to make sure I am not doing anything illegal.  The level of filings and registrations that we will have to go through are extremely burdensome.  Frankly, I find it outrageous and disgusting that I cannot tell my friends what stocks I buy.  I would think it would be protected under freedom of speech, yet in the securities industry nothing is so simple.  I have been informed by my partner and multiple lawyers that I can no longer disclose what stocks I am buying and run an investment fund.  Personally, I would like to fight this in court, but I have a responsibility to my partner and to my investors to focus on investing well.  Therefore, I have to stop disclosing what we are doing.  For that I apologize.
