What may be the most embarrassing moment yet for Mitt Romney, during the race for the 2012 Republican Nomination, happened over the weekend in the very state in which he is the former Governor and calls home.
Instead, over half of the delegates he was hoping people would vote for never made it, including notable State Republicans such as the House Minority Leader and other state politicians who even wanted to remain nameless.
Romney lost so badly in his home state that Ron Paul supporters were even voted in as the majority of the Alternate-Delegates, spiting hopefuls that included a popular 2010 gubernatorial candidate and a prominent Sheriff. . . . Read Complete Report
But there are no indications of theft or espionage, an official said.
An inventory of the holdings at the Records Center determined that 81 boxes containing Top Secret information or Restricted Data (nuclear weapons information) were missing. As of March 2011, an additional 1,540 boxes of material classified at the Secret or Confidential level also could not be located or accounted for, the Inspector General report on the matter said. Each box can hold approximately 1.1 cubic feet or 2000 to 2500 sheets of paper. . . . Read Complete Report
I’m encouraged that only about 15 percent of people surveyed in a recent poll believe the end of the world is around the corner. For hundreds of years people have been assured by prophecy writers that the end of the world was on the horizon. Every time there’s an earthquake, a war, or unusual weather patterns prophetic prognosticators assure their gullible subjects that the end is near. Many have been immobilized by the thought that an imminent end is in their future.The Mayan calendar – it’s always something – got the attention of prophecy pundits and rattled a few cages with dire predictions of the end based on an ancient civilization’s rock carving. Why anyone would believe what an extinct civilization left behind when it couldn’t predict its own end is a mystery to me. . . . Read Complete Article
Anthropomimetic robot “imitates not just the human form, but also the biological structures that enable and constrain perception and action.”
By Robotics Trends’ News Sources – Filed May 02, 2012
Keith Wagstaff for TechLand—The anthropomimetic robot synthetic human parts like bones, muscles and tendons. Its name is ECCEROBOT (short for Embodied Cognition in a Compliantly Engineered Robot) and it’s being developed by Owen Holland at the University of Sussex. The idea of biomimetic robots is not new — scientists have been building robots based on animals like fish and birds for a while now. . . . Read Complete Report
In response to an online petition sponsored by the White House, which I signed seven months ago, I’ve finally received a response from Obama’s Drug Czar, Gil Kerlikowske, explaining why we can’t let American farmers grow industrial hemp. It’s written in rather plain language, but nonetheless betrays either appalling ignorance or rank dishonesty on the part of our nation’s top drug policy official.
Unfortunately, while President Obama’s misleading claims about medical marijuana policy have generated considerable attention, the drug czar’s recent comments about hemp have gone almost entirely unnoticed and unreported. This is his entire response right here (which apparently took many months to prepare): . . . Read Complete Report

Those triangle-shaped UFOs just don’t seem to go away. Whether they’re conventional planes, experimental stealth technology or truly unexplained vehicles, reports continue to surface about these aircraft.
And the sightings aren’t isolated to a single location. Reports and videos have emerged recently from the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia.
It used to be that most UFO spotters related stories about unusual saucer-shaped or cigar-shaped craft in the skies. Around the mid-1970s, sightings of triangle-shaped, boomerang-shaped and, yes, Dorito-shaped objects hit UFO news outlets.
Some of these UFOs may, in fact, be top-secret military aircraft like the ones now known to have been developed and tested at the legendary Area 51 base north of Las Vegas.
“Three fast flying UFOs have been filmed by passenger from an airplane, just 10 minutes before passing the London Sky (England, United Kingdom) from northwest on his way to Frankfurt, Germany on April 26, 2012. UFO Sighting near London, UK.”
Occupy Protests May 1, 2012 – A “REAL” No-spin Report
by Dennis Crenshaw – Editor
May 2, 2012
The major financial problems in this country ARE caused by a combination of a corrupt good-old-boy political system, the money controllers and the capitalist system as operated today. The times are changing. For one thing corporations will eventually have to learn to share their profits with the people who actually do the hands on work, not pass it along to Corporation flunkies. Unfortunately, they will have to be forced one way or another into accepting that position. The second step is that we MUST get rid of the Federal Reserve System and get our money back on a sound track… backed by precious metals. The occupy movement is a great start in waking people up to what has been going on in our Country’s political and financial world. . . . the elitist controllers and their pals can’t stand it! They will fight it tooth and nail. . . EDITOR
Occupy Movement launches global May Day Protest 5/1/2012
Covering the Event without the “Commie control” scare tactics of the far right.
The Occupy Movement identified one of the major problems in our system, the banking and financial institutions who have used their Washington thugs to pass bills and regulations which allows them to strip the American people of their assets. Only their target group is wrong.
It’s not the top 1% who are causing our problems. It a A SMALL PERCENTAGE at the top of that 1% who control the situation. By blaming the “top 1%” and “corporate greed” the Occupy movement made a big mistake and opened a large can of worms. This is a direct challenge to the GOP and their talking heads like, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and David Horowitz who consider themselves to be members of the controlling elitist whose sole media job is to keep such talk under wraps. Check out their coverage of the Occupy protest movement. They are screaming negative vibes about the Occupy Movement louder than at anything Obama has done. This should send up red flags that they have more personal agendas in the fire when it comes to the amount of energy and time the elitist media’s talking heads spend shouting down the Occupy Movement. They didn’t “report on the “10s of thousands” of peaceful protesters that turned out across the nation. People of all walks of life. Instead they reported the one or two bad things that happened and spent the rest of the time calling the protesters “Commies.” And to recycle the old “Red Threat” from the so-called cold war. Even that isn’t new! The gotta be scared s…less!
Over the years any time the controllers felt a threat from the populace they dust off the same playbook they have used since Joe McCarty’s hearings after World War II of the age-old tactic of claiming that the “trouble makers” are controlled by Communist and Socialistic organizations. To have fallen back to using this ridiculous, outdated propaganda proves they feel like they are in dire straights and needed something that sounds frighting to send to the sheeple.
Problem is the protests numbering in the “10s of thousands in cities and towns across the nation” (the amount of people reported protesting across America on May 1).
They would have us believe that these 10s of thousands of people are all of communist bent or controlled somehow by some evil “red cells” who have anxiously been waiting in the wings for the past couple of decades for a chance to gain power in the United States; And in the Occupy Movement they see their chance to spring out of the closet! Bull Shit.
GOP and such wake up. Communism went out of style years ago. Everyone knows it failed. Hell, even your hero Ronny Ray-Gun knew it after Nancy told him. This is the 21st century, it’s radical Islam that attracts the crazies today.
Sure there are a few burned-out retreads from the 60s and 70s vocalizing about the Occupy Movement… but a plot? Give me a break. The Controllers flunky’s propaganda wants everyone to believe that those supporting the movement are a bunch of mindless puppets blindly following the resurrected communist from Occupy protest to Occupy protest. Actually these the same propaganda tactics used to turn the nation against the Branch Dravidian religious sect of Waco Texas and “the Patriot Movement” with the Oklahoma bombing. Scare tactics to turn the populace against anyone that disagrees with the controllers. Just use interchanging bad guys.
So what if some left-wing groups are using Occupy to get in their licks? That’s the American way. That doesn’t make the entire protest a “Commie” protest but it sure does play into the hands of media hacks like Rush Limbaugh. Too Bad.
If you want to know the true make-up of the protesters, look at the videos of the actual people protesting. Of course unless it’s a video of protesters being rowdy and being arrested you will not see any of the videos of the marches on you cable outlet. Continuing our pledge to be your alternative news source presenting information THEY refuse to publish we have put together the following video reports from around the Country.
Who are the protesters?
Many are young collage students who have no hopes of a job once the graduate. There are a lot of homeless people. They are at the bottom of the food chain and certainly see a problem. Then there are everyday working people who are totally frustrated.
The Republican-or-die-crowd are screaming their heads off about a “Communist Movement.” They would have you and I believe that the Occupy Movement is under the control of communist organizations. This isn’t the first time I’ve heard this. But their fears never pan out. Over the years I have watched these fascist GOP party types claim that any movement against the establishment by a group of vocal people is a “commie plot.” The right wing nutcases never want to believe that people are smart enough to know what’s going on and, when really pissed off at the controllers and their pals, will think and join others in protest on their own. Yesterday, according to one reporter, “tens of thousands of protesters turned out in peaceful protest all across the nation. If there are that many “commies” in the country, or if the small number of die hard commies and socialist of America can cause the kind of turnout we had yesterday I wonder why have the Controlling fascist fraction of our government made so many inroads over the past 40 years, yet the commies, for the most part, were forced out years ago.?
Do I believe there are far left-wing people involved in this movement? Of course I do. The left wing nutcases will join a movement such as this in a heart beat. It’s anti-establishment and that’s what they represent. Do I believe, as those in the Republican Party want me to believe, that the Occupy Movement is “controlled” by these left wink nuts. No,I firmly believe that most of the rank-and-file people protesting under the Occupy banner are people, like myself, who realize that THE TOP BANKERS and FINANCIAL CONTROLLERS ARE A LARGE CAUSE OF OUR COUNTRIES FINANCIAL PROBLEMS TODAY.
So, after listening to the mainstream press scream in our ears that the Occupy movement is nothing but a bunch of commies, lets take a look at what’s going on out on the streets. As you watch this extensive video report look at the people. Commies? Gimme a break!
After you watch the live videos if you still “think” this is not a peoples movement that’s O.K. But I personally think that line of thinking is the product of rightist propaganda. . . EDITOR
“Video documentation by local activists and independent media shows that police officers and county deputies from across Minnesota have been picking up young people near Peavey Plaza for a training program to recognize drug-impaired drivers. Multiple participants say officers gave them illicit drugs and provided other incentives to take the drugs. The Occupy movement, present at Peavey Plaza since April 7th, appears to be targeted as impaired people are dropped off at the Plaza, and others say they’ve been rewarded for offering to snitch on the movement. , , ,” Read Complete article.
Police teargas Oakland protesters at May Day general strike
“Around 400 protesters have been confronted by police who used tear gas, causing hundreds to scatter on May 1. Some activists blocked streets throughout the day and vandalized two banks, a news van and police vehicle. Nine people were taken into custody in Oakland, California, after hundreds of people took to the streets. Police reportedly used Taser against at least one of them. Officers ordered protesters out of the street after firing the tear gas and “flash-bang” grenades. RT’s correspondent Madina Kochenova has the latest from Los Angeles.”
