Texans to face $1,000 per Day Fines for Possession of Baby Chick
Filed under: Alert - State — walterj @ 1:52 am

With House Bill 1361 Texas legislators are determined to keep track of every single little baby chick in Texas.

Each cutie must be tagged with a 15 digit number to identify it. All locations containing livestock animals must register as farms. $10 annual premise ID and premise registration fee will be required for all homes where any animal ever exists, even if just visiting.

Anyone found not reporting a baby chick hatching, movement or death will face a fine of $1,000 per day for non-compliance. Similar fines for all other forms of livestock were also enacted.

With all this paperwork, fees and fines forget about 4-H. Forget about Future Farmers of America. NoNAIS.org Tagged ChickForget about that baby chick hatching school project. Homesteaders, you better eat your chickens now and don’t bother counting them. No more eggs. No more summer pigs. Slaughter that fatted calf. From now on plan on purchasing your food only at government approved distribution centers with sufficiently powerful lobbyists and friends in high places. Sorry small farmers - no more farmer’s market or farm stands in the future. The paperwork will destroy small farmers. So dies the Buy Local movement.

This monstrosity was originally brought to you by your friends at the USDA under the guise of NAIS - the National Animal Identification System. The Texas Animal Health Commission, which developed the rules in Texas, NoNAIS.org Tagged Chickcan be reached with comments on this absurdity by email until 5pm February 6th, 2006. The question is, are they really listening. Be sure that after that short “public comment” period they’re going to cover their collective eyes and ears as the food supply consolidates into the hands of the big producers. Do you think that will make the national food supply safer?

Perhaps our pseudo-elected Govi-Corp doesn’t have enough to do, so they sit around thinking up things like this. Remember: Idle hands do the devil’s work…

Here's an excellent letter you can use to send to your mayor to demand Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development do not take root in your county. You can also send a copy to this Plusquellic fellow. These clowns need to feel as much heat and opposition as possible.

Letter of Opposition to Agenda 21
and Sustainable Development

The U.S. Conference of Mayors

To: Donald L. Plusquellic, President
U.S. Conference of Mayors
1620 I St. N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20006

Opposition to Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development

Mr. Plusquellic:

As an American citizen, I am adamantly opposed to the policies of the UN’s Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development for the following reasons.

* Sustainable Development is contrary to U.S. policy of limited government and local rule. It is anti private property, anti free enterprise and anti personal freedom. It is being promoted by non-governmental organizations as a radical political agenda. It is being enforced by international edict - not by American Constitutional rule of law.

* Sustainable Development will raise energy taxes and cost of living expenses while reducing America’s standard of living by forcing cutbacks in energy and water use. It will dictate travel choices, mandate eating decisions, and even direct career decisions. Sustainable development is an invasion of every aspect of the personal lives of all Americans, including reproductive rights, resulting in a wrenching transformation of our way of life and of missing reproductive rights.

* Sustainable Development policies such as “smart growth” and the use of eminent domain, are causing Americans pain and misery and these “top-down” control policies are being implemented by non-elected policy boards and planning commissions. As a result, Americans are losing control of their constitutional protections of property and free choice and constitutional form and destroyed.

* The policies of Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development are a disaster to the American economy and our way of life. Americans need more than 26 gallons of water per day. There is no reason to reduce energy consumption by 30%. Government, at any level, has no right to dictate personal decisions like the food we eat or the careers we chose. Sustainable Development is contrary to every principle of personal freedom that built this nation.

For these reasons, I, the undersigned American citizen, demand that the U.S. Conference of Mayors withdraw its support of this disastrous international policy called Sustainable Development (as outlined in the United Nations Agenda 21 document) and support local decisions made by the citizens in individual communities, as our nation was established and as the mayors you represent were elected to do.

How come the price of stamps went up again? According to the post office, the thieves in Congress needed money:

"The reason for this was the rate increase was compelled by legislation enacted in 2003 requiring the Postal Service to put over $3 billion each year beginning in 2006 into an escrow account that could not be used for operations. Efforts to change the escrow requirement have been stalled in Congress. Without the escrow requirement, postage rates most likely would have remained at current levels for another year."

Last week at the post office when I inquired, my friendly and getting educated from listening to One for the Road post employee printed me out a receipt which reads:

"Reason for rate class 2006: If customers ask why postal rates are increasing please remind them that this rate increase, the first since 2002, is needed to fulfill the requirements of federal law. It was not driven by operating costs or revenue short fall - but by Congress. The law required the USPS establish an escrow account and use of funds to be determined by Congress. Without this mandate, it would not be necessary to raise rates at this time."

And, you can make darn sure the machines will "reelect" these same crooks in November unless there is a massive voter revolt against electronic ballot machines.

In a shocking development, the Treasury Department website is openly stating that as of January 24, 2006 our national debt stood at $8,185.3 billion and on January 26th at $8,190.5 billion.


Yet the US national debt ‘ceiling’, the maximum amount of debt the US government may hold at any one time, stands at $8,184 billion – a full $5.5 billion less. Although called upon by John Snow, Congress has not yet passed an expansion of the debt ceiling and so the US government is now operating in technical default.

You may recall that when last the debt ceiling was approached in the months surrounding the 2004 elections, the Treasury department furiously employed every accounting trick in the book (and then some) to avoid breaching the limit. They even went so far as to take the unprecedented step of borrowing $14 billion from the Federal Financing Bank to cover up the shortfall.

But they never breached the ceiling.

On January 24th they breached it brazenly and openly and with nary an accompanying explanation. Neither have any lawmakers have broached this indelicate subject.

I suppose we could write this off as merely an unsurprising development from a government that no longer bothers to even appear to be adhering to rules, laws and procedures, let alone actually doing so.

But the silence is all the more troubling because there is an unprecedented level of government borrowing on the books for 1Q06 with next 2 weeks (Feb 1st to Feb 9th) an especially busy period of time. An ambitious ~$70-$80b in Treasury paper will hit the market.

The federal government does not have the legal authority to borrow above the statutory debt limit, which raises the prospect of emergency congressional action to avoid a full-fledged default.

Congress will probably attach a rider to a “must-pass” defense appropriation bill and ironically title it “The Fiscal Responsibility Amendment of 2006”. And if they do, $50 says they do it very late on Friday night.

Since the debt ceiling has been raised 50 times over the past 40 years, hoping for some rational debate on the matter would be an extravagant indulgence. Time spent wishing pigs could fly would offer a far better potential return.

Another odd facet of this story is the deafening silence from the financial press (and I use that term loosely) regarding this matter. Leaving aside the issue of a technical default, one wonders why questions aren’t being asked about the rate of debt accumulation and whether it’s sustainable.

The last debt-ceiling adjustment was $800 billion and was passed in November 2004. Now, on January 24th 2006, it is entirely gone. $800 billion in only 16 months for an average of $50B a month.

Factoring out the plundering of excess social security contributions, the US government borrowed $52B in 3Q05, $96B in 4Q05 and expects to borrow $171B in 1Q06. A trend nearly as mind-boggling as the soon to be discontinued M3 series.

Why do I even bother to pen such distressing factoids?

Because in all my time studying economics I have determined only one thing; there’s no free lunch. Pay now or pay later but pay we will.

Or, more accurately, we hope that our kids will, and not stiff us for the bill. But if they did, who could blame them?

I, for one, would not be shocked.

I would like to offer this up for consideration regarding your prediction that soft targets in the U.S. are about to be hit by Bin Laden operatives:

Any low level technician can produce an edited tape made up from comments from any human, run them together and come out with a speech in a video. Bin Laden has been recorded for his speeches, etc., for twenty years. I'm sure there are thousands of his words in tape inventory. Like I said, a good technician can splice them together and come out with a pretty authentic sounding video.

Second, have you ever heard of an man named Eric Haney? I sent him e-mail about a month ago and asked him to verify that he made this statement:

Bin Laden was killed on Dec. 15, 2001. The military knew exactly where he was, that they bombed that Tora Bora mountain section into the stone age and that no one could have escaped or lived the way the operation was set up and completed. He is dead, period.

Haney sent me a response and confirmed that this is absolutely true and yes, he did tell this to a man named Gary McClaren during an interview.

Who is Eric Haney?

"For more than twenty years, Command Sergeant Major (retired) Eric L. Haney served in the United States Army's most demanding combat units: As a Combat Infantryman, as a Ranger, and ultimately, as a founding member and eight-year veteran of the Army's super secret counter-terrorist arm, Delta Force."

Bin Laden wants a truce? That would not sit well with his followers; it would make him look cowardly, not fulfilling the jihad. Remember in April of 2004, there was allegedly another tape where Bin Laden was asking for a truce (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,117148,00.html)? This sounds like round two.

If you read Crossing the Rubicon you know that Ruppert's research is impeccable. Those 900 foot notes in his book are as critical as the documents he reproduces in the book. There is no question in my mind that Cheney was running the show on 9/11 and that Rudy Guiliani is up to his a** in the cover up. I guess that makes me part of the conspiracy crowd, but I'm not really. The truth is all that matters. What we can prove.

There's no doubt the radical Muslims and other factions out there hate the U.S. There's no doubt we could experience some sort of authentic terrorist attack which is why I believe Dr. Edwin Vieira's project of reconstituting the state militias as mandated by the Second Amendment is of paramount importance. However, I also believe you have to understand how the game works or it will play you. This isn't easy at all even for seasoned researchers and those who follow all these events and no one has all the answers. All we can do is continue to try and verify information.

The evil doers always want to keep a population scared and chasing their tails. It makes people uneasy, edgy, afraid. They hit the bottle more, the drugs, drown in mindless TV, sports and other addictions to escape that uneasy feeling. The U.S., Communist China and Russia are allies and operate under the same tactics as the Stalin-Lenin method: create these monsters, unleash them and then hunt them down. Manipulte the masses into supporting "hunting down terrorists," and so forth. It's so transparent, yet unless one has studied like Jeri Lynn Ball, who has taught me so much through her incredible research, a person can be mislead.

I watched the McKinney hearings. The three women who represented the 9/11 Families do not believe the official story about what happened on September 11, 2001 - the justification for Bin Laden and Bush's nebulous and endless war on terrorism. They tried over and over and over to get the Kean Commission to get them those video tapes from around the Pentagon (VDOT, Sheraton, Pentagon gas station), but they were rebuffed at every turn. They are determined to get them. None of them came across as crack pots or conspiracy wackos. They lost their husbands and sons. All three were dead serious and they want the truth about what really happened. They want those videos. There is no legitimate reason why the Department of Justice should not release them to the American people — just like the 23 they're still hiding from the Murrah Building.

As for intelligence sources, whose? I think John Loftus has hit it on the head:


"It is time for Congress to face the truth: In order to give Enron one last desperate chance to complete the Taliban pipeline and save itself from bankruptcy, senior levels of US intelligence were ordered to keep their eyes shut and their subordinates ignorant. The Enron cover-up confirms that 9/11 was not an intelligence failure or a law enforcement failure (at least not entirely). Instead, it was a foreign policy failure of the highest order. If Congress ever combines its Enron investigation with 9/11, Cheney’s whole house of cards will collapse."

If you go to Loftus' web site, you'll see he's no light weight. As for me, I wouldn't believe anything from this CIA or the Bush Administration. I'm sure there are good, decent people who do work for the CIA, but I also believe without a doubt that certain rogue elements within the CIA have been running drugs for years and have run illegal operations for decades. If you read The Praetorian Guard by John Stockman, I think you would agree. Stockman isn't some conspiracy wacko, he is the highest ranking CIA officer ever to quit after something like 30 years in the service and blow the whistle. He was sickened by what our govmint was doing and could no longer be part of it.

There's no doubt in my mind that terrorists have been crossing the border from Mexico. There's no doubt we are very vulnerable. I'm not sure what all these disposable cell phones has to do with Bin Laden - especially if he is dead. Unless Madsen is wrong and he is a very good investigative reporter, Bin Laden quit using cell phones back in 1996. He had a column about this back in December 2005 on this very issue. There's no question Madsen despises Bush and is a Democrat, but as I said, he does his homework:


Anyway, since you and Mr. Haney are both former military, perhaps you might wish to contact him and ask him about Tora Bora and see if he can supply you with more details. He was very gracious to respond to my e-mail very quickly.

Since the attacks of 9/11/2001, I have repeatedly insisted that there was no terrorist threat to citizens of the United States on United States soil. In both articles, titled, "There Is No Terrorist Threat" http://www.thepriceofliberty.org/04/01/28/worden.htm and, "There Is No Terrorist Threat II" http://www.thepriceofliberty.org/04/08/04/worden.htm I explained how and why I came to that conclusion.

Well times change. Al Jazeera just released a voice-verified taped recording of bin Laden that I believe is a signal to imbedded terrorist cells on U.S. soil to begin suicide bomber and other forms of terrorist attacks imminently.

Many citizens might assume bin Laden would try to stage another 9/11 style attack of monumental proportions, as they did when the Twin Towers and the Pentagon were attacked on 9/11/2001, but terrorists don't operate like that. Terrorists strike soft targets that have the least security, and since the most likely targets were identified long ago by anti-terror experts publicly, those potential targets are the least likely to be attacked.

Just as I accurately predicted the protracted and unwinnable War On Iraq in "If I Were Saddam" http://www.federalobserver.com/archive.php?aid=3562 I can accurately predict bin Laden will attack soft targets like packed movie theaters, night clubs, etc., all over the U.S., and particularly in smaller "heartland" towns and cities like right where I live near Medford, Oregon.

The reason I am suddenly changing my tune is a conglomeration of intelligence that points to imminent domestic attacks. We have reports that Middle-Eastern men have purchased or attempted to purchase mass quantities of "throw-away" cellular telephones. Those telephones can be used to communicate securely, and they can be used to detonate secreted bombs like the ones being used in Iraq to kill U.S. troops on an almost daily basis. We also know bin Laden is under pressure since at least four of his top al Qaeda operatives were killed in a CIA attack on a remote Pakistani village, using an unmanned drone firing Hellfire Missiles at a home where the operatives had been lured to attend a dinner celebration.

Bin Laden has something to prove now. He is about to exploit and expose all the lies being told to the American public by the Bush Administration. If we are to believe the Bush BS, we have not been attacked since 9/11/01 because Bush has implemented strict and sweeping security measures through the Office of Homeland Security, up to and including unconstitutional orders to use electronic eavesdropping without required warrants on U.S. citizens in alleged contact with suspected terrorists overseas.

I can already foresee the conspiracy nuts writing articles claiming the coming terrorist attacks are Bush-arranged to quell the growing calls for his impeachment and the calls for American forces to be withdrawn from Iraq. But one of the claims bin Laden makes in this latest correspondence is that he has chosen not to attack citizens on U.S. soil until now, and I believe bin Laden is now going to prove it.

All this time since 9/11/2001, President Bush has refused to slam our northern and southern borders shut Soviet-style. Just about anyone can successfully cross our borders carrying illegal immigrants, illegal drugs, weaponry, ammunition, explosives and even shoulder-fired Russian SA-7 anti-aircraft missiles and RPG shoulder-fired grenade launchers. The Bush people have always insisted it to be an impossible task to close our borders, while the former Soviet Union proved it could do so on borders considerably larger than our own. The fact is, Bush & Company have refused to lock-up our borders in deference to (what a shock!) large, multi-national corporations operating in the United States, who require cheap, illegal labor. When, and not if now, bin Laden's forces begin to attack as I've predicted here, all the lies Bush has been telling us will be exposed, and many American citizens will die and be maimed to prove Bush the liar he is.

As I wrote in the previous articles, bin Laden has chosen not to attack Americans on U.S. soil to date, because strategically, it would prove to be a bad move. That was the only incorrect prediction I made in "If I Were Saddam". Terror attacks on U.S. citizens on U.S. soil would only serve to unify Americans against al Qaeda, and would dispel the growing sentiment of Americans to leave Iraq.

But the layout of the current chess board has changed. Bush's lies that our alleged security measures have prevented such attacks is tantamount to Bush's onerous challenge to "Bring It On", which resulted in the terrorist elements in Iraq to "bring it on" and accelerate the deaths and maimings of American soldiers in Iraq. It would be a great service to our troops serving overseas if someone would stick a sock in Bush's mouth and duct-tape it in place. Hope springs eternal.

In the meantime, I am sticking my neck out as I'm known for, and I am warning Americans nationwide to stay away from large, concentrated groups of people. You ignore this warning at your extreme peril -- and those you love. I believe bin Laden has decided now is the time to begin terror operations in the United States, and if I am right, these attacks will be on heartland America -- just to show all you doubters just how easy it is to get past all this alleged "security" Bush & Company have been touting.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if this article reaches you just before the first attacks take place.

10 Easy Questions About Money

Watch out for a tsumani of inflated Federal Reserve currency starting about springtime.

As the fixed-income crowd shells out more and more paper dollars for the same goods and services, some might actually start looking at what the Constitution says about money. (The quick course is my little book "The Miracle On Main Street," if you can find a copy. It's almost out of print.)

Thinking that in the original edition there had been a section of ten questions to ask any judge, James, a 6th-edition MOMS reader, asked me to reiterate them. Well, there were no ten questions, but I sat down and thought about it, and they just wrote themselves.

I don't envision posing these in a courtroom, but rather in a fireside chat with a friend who happens to be a judge (or maybe practices law). Judges resent surly questions, and can ignore them with impunity. So be careful with these things.

  1. Can Congress pass a law that would cause a State to violate the Constitution?

  2. Can a State declare anything whatsoever to be a legal tender for all debts public and private?

  3. Can Congress declare anything whatsoever to be a legal tender for all debts public and private?

  4. Does the Constitution declare anything but gold and silver coin to be a legal tender for all debts public and private?

  5. Does Congress have any power not given it by the Constitution?

  6. Can a State do something the Constitution denies it power to do?

  7. Has Article I Section 10 of the Constitution been amended?

  8. Has any Supreme Court decision rendered null and void the provisions of Article I Section 10 of the Constitution?

  9. If Congress cannot cause a State to violate the Constitution, and if neither a State nor Congress can make any thing but gold and silver coin a legal tender for the payment of all debts public and private, and if the Constitution does not empower Congress to employ a monetary system other than consists of gold and silver coin, then why does Congress provide, and State and federal courts enforce payment of debts in, a monetary system which the Constitution prohibits?

  10. How should a United States citizen exercise the civil right to the monetary system already provided by the Constitution but denied by Congress and the States?

If you haven't read Tupper's fine books, i.e. Miracle on Main Street, it is a gem. Hard to find books: www.alibris.com

New tests fuel doubts about vote machines

"A top election official and computer experts say computer hackers could easily change election results, after they found numerous flaws with a state-approved voting-machine in Tallahassee.

"A political operative with hacking skills could alter the results of any election on Diebold-made voting machines -- and possibly other new voting systems in Florida -- according to the state capital's election supervisor, who said Diebold software has failed repeated tests.
Ion Sancho, Leon County's election chief, said tests by two computer experts, completed this week, showed that an insider could surreptitiously change vote results and the number of ballots cast on Diebold's optical-scan machines."

Full December 15, 2005 column from Miami-Herald here: http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/news/state/13410061.htm

* * * * *

This in January 5, 2006 from a gentleman who read my column on vote fraud:

Voting in many of New Hampshire Towns (45%) is still done by HAND WRITTEN PAPER BALLOTS (including mine); the ballots are placed in a box in the center of the polling place, out in the open; and when the Polls close, the Votes are counted and tallied right there at the Polls in Public View! Many towns in the North Country still vote this way!

According to the article "Feature: 1st in the nation: The case for electoral integrity" from 11/28/2005 (http://www.democracyfornewhampshire.com/node/view/1851) : “...Studies have shown that jurisdictions using hand-counted paper ballots reported the highest turnout rates of any type of voting system, making New Hampshire's 45% hand counted polling places significant in election integrity... New Hampshire requires and recognizes the paper ballot (as differentiated from a paper "audit trail") as the vote of record; New Hampshire conducts 45% of its ballot counts by hand; New Hampshire does not use any touch screen voting technology; New Hampshire conducts all recounts using hand counts as the count of record”.

Also, in most New Hampshire Towns, every Voter has a say about how the town they live in will do business, and spend it's money. Every year, in early February or March (depending on the Town), it is the annual “Town Meeting” night. At that time, the town meets to discuss and vote on the next year's budget, and any projects which the town wishes to do. First, any one who wishes to speak about any subject can do so. Then, the yearly budget is proposed, debated, and it is voted on. Next, any spending proposals are put forward, debated, and then voted on. EVERYONE gets a say in how the town will operate. (For an idea of what goes on at the annual “Town Meeting”, see: http://www.townoflittleton.org/docs/warrant.html ).

Just thought I would pass this on! BTW: Keep it up; your voice IS being heard, and IS making a difference!


The American people have the power to turn things around in this country one county at a time. Will be writing more on this in the future.

What's the Fed Up To With the Money Supply?
by Robert McHugh
December 23, 2005

Over the past two days, December 21st - when our first Hindenburg Omen (of whatever cluster is coming) - and Thursday December 22nd, the Federal Reserve has conducted one of the largest two-day Repo injections of money into the system since back in September 2001. On Wednesday they added $18.0 billion in reserves and on Thursday they added another $20.0 billion. Is this a coincidence, coming right as we get another Hindenburg Omen? Probably not. Is something high-risk going on behind the scenes here? Let's review some facts at the Fed. On November 10th, 2005, shortly after appointing Bernanke to replace Greenbackspan, the Fed mysteriously announced with little comment and no palatable justification that they will hide M-3 effective March 2006. M-3 has been the main staple of money supply measurement and transparent disclosure since the Fed was founded back in 1913. It is the key monetary aggregate that includes Fed Repo transactions, that mechanism whereby the Fed increases reserves. The date when M-3 will start being hidden also happens to be the exact month that Iran will declare economic war against the U.S. Dollar by trading its oil in Petro-Euros on its new bourse. But there is more. The Federal Reserve currently has three vacancies within the 19 top Regional Bank and Board of Governor spots. Why? Part of ongoing wholesale resignations.

I appreciate this:

Dear Ms. Kidd,

I just read your piece on the skinning of dogs and cats in China. While I had seen the film made by the Swiss Federation of Animal Welfare Societies last June (and made several copies of this and distributed them at the Asia for Animals Conference at Singapore later that month), I was moved to rage and tears reading your article.

I just wanted to write to you since you had mention that you were a regular donor to United Animal Nations. They are, indeed, a wonderful organization and one of several in the US who generously helped the Blue Cross of India after the tsunami in December 2004.

The amount of awareness you have raised on this issue is vast – keep up the good work.

With all good wishes for a Merry Christmas and a very happy 2006.

Circulating the Net; I don't know who is the author:

1) New York City has 11 letters

2) Afghanistan has 11 letters.

3) Ramsin Yuseb (The terrorist who threatened to destroy the Twin
Towers in 1993) has 11 letters.

4) George W Bush has 11 letters.

This could be a mere coincidence, but this gets more interesting:

1) New York is the 11th state.

2) The first plane crashing against the Twin Towers was flight number 11.

3) Flight 11 was carrying 92 passengers. 9 + 2 = 11

4) Flight 77 which also hit Twin Towers, was carrying 65 passengers. 6+5 = 11

5) The tragedy was on September 11, or 9/11 as it is now known. 9 + 1+ 1 = 11

6) The date is equal to the US emergency services telephone number 911. 9 + 1 + 1 = 11.

Sheer coincidence..?! Read on and make up your own mind:

1) The total number of victims inside all the hi-jacked planes was 254. 2 + 5 + 4 = 11.

2) September 11 is day number 254 of the calendar year. Again 2 + 5 + 4 = 11.

3) The Madrid bombing took place on 3/11/2004. 3 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 4 = 11.

4) The tragedy of Madrid happened 911 days after the Twin Towers

Now this is where things get totally eerie:

The most recognised symbol for the US, after the Stars & Stripes, is
the Eagle. The following verse is taken from the Quran, the Islamic
holy book:

"For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah and lo, while some of the people trembled in despair still more rejoiced: for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah and there was peace."

That verse is number 9.11 of the Quran.


Open Microsoft Word and do the following:

1. Type in capitals Q33 NY. This is the flight number of the first plane to hit one of the Twin Towers.

2. Highlight the Q33 NY.

3. Change the font size to 48.

4. Change the actual font to the WINGDINGS

I tried the formula above and it was actually quite shocking.

An interesting court case:


Docket No. 98932-Agenda 7-September 2005.


Opinion filed December 15, 2005.

CHIEF JUSTICE THOMAS delivered the opinion of the court:

At issue in this case is whether the General Assembly violated the single subject clause of the Illinois Constitution of 1970 (Ill. Const. 1970, art. IV, §8(d)) when it enacted Public Act 88-669 (Pub. Act 88-669, eff. November 29, 1994). The legislation in Public Act 88-669, entitled "An Act in relation to government regulation," amended, among other statutes, section 1301 of the Illinois Income Tax Act (35 ILCS 5/1301 (West 1994)), to state that a first violation of that section is a Class 4 felony and each subsequent violation is a Class 3 felony. The defendants, Valdy and Malgorzata Olender, had been charged under the amended version of section 1301. Defendants moved to dismiss the indictments against them on the ground that section 1301 had been unconstitutionally amended by Public Act 88-669 in violation of the single subject clause. The circuit court of Cook County granted defendants' motions to dismiss. The State appealed directly to this court pursuant to Supreme Court Rule 302(a) (134 Ill. 2d R. 302(a)). For the following reasons, we affirm the judgment of the circuit court and hold that Public Act 88-669 violates the single subject clause.

I'm sure Rush Limbaugh and Shawn Hannity had a fine spin to put on this one:


"WASHINGTON (AP) -- A federal judge has resigned from a special court set up to oversee government surveillance to protest President Bush's secret authorization of a domestic spying program on people with suspected terrorist ties, The Washington Post reported.

"The action by U.S. District Judge James Robertson stemmed from deep concern that the surveillance program that Bush authorized was legally questionable and may have tainted the work of the court that Robertson resigned from, the newspaper said in Wednesday's editions."
Mr. Don Bangert sent this along on December 17, 2005:

"This authorization is a vital tool in our war against the terrorists. It is critical to saving American lives. The American people expect me to do everything in my power, under our laws and Constitution, to protect them and their civil liberties and that is exactly what I will continue to do as long as I am president of the United States," ~President Bush, defending a post-Sept. 11 secret eavesdropping program in the U.S. by the National Security Agency without obtaining warrants from a court.

Do you see the flaw in his words and with his logic? The portion of Mr. Bush's brain that formulates sentences understands the scope in which Mr. Bush, as President, is suppose to operate. The rest of his brain, unfortunately, is out to lunch. What "power" does Mr. Bush have? What "law" does he operate under? What part of the Constitution does he refer to? And what does he mean by, "...protect them and their civil liberties"? Let us look, keeping to the subject of surveillance.

His Power

50USC36§1811 Notwithstanding any other law, the President, through the Attorney General, may authorize electronic surveillance without a court order under this subchapter to acquire foreign intelligence information for a period not to exceed fifteen calendar days following a declaration of war by the Congress.

The authority that empowers the president to surveil persons turns on a declaration of war by the Congress. No declaration of war, no authority. To the best of my knowledge, Congress has yet to declare war on anything.

The Law

50USC36§1802(a)(1) Notwithstanding any other law, the President, through the Attorney General, may authorize electronic surveillance without a court order under this subchapter to acquire foreign intelligence information for periods of up to one year if the Attorney General certifies in writing under oath that--(B) there is no substantial likelihood that the surveillance will acquire the contents of any communication to which a United States person is a party.

Put simply, the President cannot order surveillance of a United States person without a court order.

Our Constitution

Amendment IV,
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the person or things to be seized.

This Amendment is a broadly-worded restriction on government to not infringe on individuals' rights to privacy, liberty, and property. It provides an outline to our government in acceptable methods of investigating individuals. In it's most basic sense, the government can never surveil citizens without first getting a court order.

His Duty

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish the Constitution for the United States of America.

As a representative of the United States Government, he has sworn an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution. The Constitution created our government to protect the rights and liberties of the people. For the President to authorize the illegal spying on American citizens is contradictory to the function and purpose of our government.

The American Expectation

What do we expect from our President and the rest of our government? We expect our government to do its job to the very best of its ability. The American people expect that, while doing its job, the government will not violate the rights of the people. To do so would be counterintuitive to the purpose of government. Our Declaration of Independence best articulates this concept: "[T]o secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."

Information overload, but I'm doing my best!

From War-fighting to Nation-building
by William Norman Grigg

December 28, 2005

Department of Defense Directive 3000.5, issued by Deputy Secretary of Defense Gordon England on November 28, dramatically redefines the role of the U.S. military by defining "stability operations" -- that is, peacekeeping and nation-building -- as "a core U.S. Military mission ... [that] shall be given priority comparable to combat operations."

Not surprisingly, the Pentagon directive tracks the recommendations found in the book In the Wake of War: Improving U.S. Post-Conflict Capabilities, the report of a Council on Foreign Relations task force co-chaired by former National Security Advisers Samuel R. Berger (from the Clinton administration) and Brent Scowcroft (of the Bush I administration).

Directive 3000.5 "amounts to an admission that the White House and the Pentagon botched the planning for the war in Iraq -- that their dismissal of 'nation-building' as a worthy concept and their subsequent failure to plan for 'stability operations' in Iraq (the official term for securing order and building stable institutions after an armed conflict) account, in large measure, for the mess we're in now," adds Slate's Fred Kaplan, a veteran military affairs reporter.

A gentleman who disagrees with of my columns:

Will Americans sacrifice more of their own for the bankers?


"Until now, I thought you were a very intelligent gal but after this article I now have doubts. Your arguments against this Iraqi War are not valid. I do agree all Presidents should be held accountable for their actions but I cannot agree that this war is a futile endeavour.

"We know very well what the objectives of the radical Muslims are and they are to kill and exterminate those who do not profess their religion. It is that simple. And whether we defend our way of life here in the United States or in Iraq or wherever, it is a legitimate cause. We must defend our way of life and our religious beliefs as fervently as we did in the Revolutionary War, The War between the States, WWII, Korea, Vietnam and the Middle East.

"I for one, support the President and our troops on a job well done. And we will win this conflict in the long run. I just don't buy the Democrats spin on this as apparently you have."

Well, I'm sure glad I can't think for myself and have bought into the Democrats spin. I'm afraid party faithful like Mr. Seale are going to be in for a rude awakening.

I seldom read Truthout.org because, well, I just don't care for much of the stuff they post. But, as I do have enormous respect for Jonathan Turley, I'm pulling a quote from this column:

Bush's Impeachable Offense
By Michelle Goldberg
22 December 2005


"It was bracing to see impeachment mentioned as a possibility in the mainstream media. But experts say it's not unreasonable. According to Turley, there's little question Bush committed a federal crime by violating the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

"The act authorizes a secret court to issue warrants to eavesdrop on potential suspects, or anyone even remotely connected to them, inside the United States. The bar to obtain a FISA warrant is low; more than 15,000 have been granted, with only four requests denied since 1979. In emergency situations, the government can even apply for FISA warrants retroactively. Nevertheless, Bush chose not to comply with FISA's minimal requirements.

"The fact is, the federal law is perfectly clear," Turley says. "At the heart of this operation was a federal crime. The president has already conceded that he personally ordered that crime and renewed that order at least 30 times. This would clearly satisfy the standard of high crimes and misdemeanors for the purpose of an impeachment."

"Turley is no Democratic partisan; he testified to Congress in favor of Bill Clinton's impeachment. "Many of my Republican friends joined in that hearing and insisted that this was a matter of defending the rule of law, and had nothing to do with political antagonism," he says. "I'm surprised that many of those same voices are silent. The crime in this case was a knowing and premeditated act. This operation violated not just the federal statute but the United States Constitution. For Republicans to suggest that this is not a legitimate question of federal crimes makes a mockery of their position during the Clinton period. For Republicans, this is the ultimate test of principle." End quote.

How Congress Has Assaulted Our Freedoms in the Patriot Act

by Andrew P. Napolitano
December 16, 2005

"The compromise version of the Patriot Act to which House and Senate conferees agreed last week and for which the House voted yesterday is an unforgivable assault on basic American values and core constitutional liberties. Unless amended in response to the courageous efforts of a few dozen senators from both parties, the new Patriot Act will continue to give federal agents the power to write their own search warrants – the statute’s newspeak terminology calls them "national security letters" – and serve them on a host of persons and entities that regularly gather and store sensitive, private information on virtually every American.

"Congress once respected the Fourth Amendment until it began cutting holes in it. Before Congress enacted the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in 1977, Americans and even non-citizens physically present here enjoyed the right to privacy guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment. That Amendment, which was written out of a revulsion to warrants that let British soldiers look for any tangible thing anywhere they chose, specifically requires that the government demonstrate to a judge and the judge specifically find the existence of probable cause of criminal activity on the part of the person whose property the government wishes to search. The Fourth Amendment commands that only a judge can authorize a search warrant."

The families of KAL 007 have been trying since 1990 to get their loved ones back from the Ruskies. Please contact your congress critter and tell him/her that you demand they move immediately to get Bush to stop this cover up and demand Vlad Putin return all living passengers to their home country. What if it were your loved one? How would you feel if no one cared?

The Survivors of KAL 007: the evidences and the whereabouts

The time has come to present, in the fullest way possible publically, the results of the investigation, at the present stage, into the whereabouts and the conditions of passengers of KAL 007. "The fullest way possible" needs, first, to be qualified. What you will read are mainly the results, rather than the detailed documentation of sources. This is because of the following:

    1. In some cases, there are definite confidentiality commitments that the Committee for the Rescue has made to family members of the passengers. We await permission for release. These comittments need to be honored for their own sakes, and for continued coooperation.

    2. Follow -up investigation and verification, in some cases, are presently in progress

    3. The safety of informants may still be at stake.

The information in this paper entails research results, first and second hand testimony, and "educated conjecture". Where this has involved sources not directly communicated to the Committee for the Rescue , that fact has been noted. Some information will be well detailed and other information meagerly so (for reasons given above). I am well aware, especially due to the contrast between the detailed and the meager, of the incomplete and in some cases the vapid impression this will leave. An impression crying for authentication. I can do nothing about this. God grant that there will be a new and thorough investigation into the long neglected and heartrending situation of so many people of so many countries, so many children, left abandoned and unsought after. For those who say that so much time has passed - is it worth the effort to "dig up the past"?, I would reply in question- what time could you give, until which year after such an event, would it be worth it to still be digging? Which year is the proper year to give up on your loved one?, on someone else's loved one?

Firstly, there have been, contrary to common perception, contacts, after the shootdown, of passengers with their families.

The most dramatic and startling has come recently to our attention though it had occurred long ago.

Fourteen years ago, we were informed by a mother of children who were passengers of KAL 007 that another women who herself was the wife of a passenger on KAL 007, had received a phone call from her husband shortly after the shootdown, but the conversation had been immediately cut off. She supplied identifying info concerning this women and her husband but we did not make any steps in contact. It is still hard for me to comprehend why I did not pursue the matter. It would have been possible, I think, to make correlation with the passenger identity through the passenger manifest.

In any case, about a year ago, the Committee for the Rescue of KAL 007 Survivors received a letter from the daughter of a passenger and, about 2 months ago, a letter from the niece of this same passenger. The daughter told us the story of her mother telling the family when they were all young, that she had gotten a telephone call from her husband after the shootdown. The niece, further, added to the information that her aunt had sent the recording from the telephone of her husband for voice analysis. These two girls were in their teens at the time. Now, of course, they are women in their 30's. It further became clear, from details that emerged, that this women who had received the call was, indeed, the women whom we had heard about 14 years ago.

We finally made contact with the wife of the passenger, and after initial hesitation in communicating with us, she did so, and related to us the following story. The call had come while she was out of the house and was taken by the answering machine. On returning home, she listened and heard her husband's voice, but it was cut off amost immendiately. She sent the tape to her lawyers who then had it sent to governmental and "proper" authority. The voice on the tape, apparently, turned out to be of her husband, for she was told that the tape was a "bleed thru" of a previous conversation with him which had been taped over. She knew that this was not true for the simple reason that the tape was a new tape that had just been put into the answering machine. There had been no previous conversation!! The voice said "We'll be ..." and the last word was cut off, but sounded like "home' or "up". This women even now castigates herself that she was not home at the time to receive the call instead of the call going on the answering machine, and that only after time had been wasted for the outgoing message. And then the cut-off!

Our main endeavor now is to get the original, or second best, copy of the recording. It would certainly help in opening up the case again. But this women had been fairly well traumatized by opposition from various quarters, and opposition that had gone on for the first year of her revealing the phone call.

This incident is very similar to another report the Committee received- this time through a third party.

"...several weeks after kal007 was shot down, I was listening to KGO TALK RADIO in San Francisco. I was surprised to hear a young woman who called in to talk about the fate of KAl 007 announce that her close friend's fiance had been aboard. She went on to reveal that the fiance had telephoned after the flight was downed by a soviet interceptor. He regretfully informed his financee that he was safe but that he was certain he would never see her again. Has anyone contacted your webmaster with this type of information? Did any other passengers contact loved ones? After all these years, the voice of the young woman continues to haunt me. She sounded sincere and overwhelmed by the situation. my husband was a pow who did not return from North Vietnam (alive) and the fate of the passengers of KAL007 is as troubling as the abandonment of our POWS."

To the two above reports, I will add four other reports that we consider credible but needing investigation - although these are reports do not involve passenger contacts specifically to family members:

  1. Walter O'Reilly, President of Forget Me Not, the umbrella organization for various POW/MIA groups, the organization popularly associated with yellow flower distribution, reports that while on official business in the new Russian Federation, he was accosted at the steps of the former Lubyanka Central KGB prison by two men who surreptitiously said to him "We have your congressman." O'Reilly's response was a startled, "No, you don't," as he walked quickly away. He then realized that they must have meant Congressman Larry McDonald, who had been a passenger on KAL 007. He quickly returned to the steps but the men were gone.

  2. A Christian minister in Long Island, New York, reports that while visiting Russia he had contact with a Russian pastor who claimed that he had been imprisoned for his faith with a group of people whom he believed were the American contingent from KAL 007. They had arrived at the prison the same week as the shootdown. Initially clothed in Western civilian attire, they presently donned the normal prison uniform. This Russian pastor now lives on the west coast of the United States and still has contact with the Christian minister in Long Island, but refuses to say anything further about the matter fearing for the safety of his relatives in Russia and for his own safety in the United States. Certain individuals have circulated among the Russian émigrés in his area warning them with threats lest any of them speak about their prison experiences. The Russian pastor agreed to speak with me through a "voice disguiser" but then changed his mind.

  3. And then there is the strange and chilling tale of former Russian academician, David Stavitski, now residing in the United States. In an article published in Aleph, the Russian language US/Israeli publication (note 1.), Stavitski recounts that just three months after the shoot-down of KAL 007, while in the process of preparing for a conference of college teachers in the field of the effects of psychotropic drugs during combat, he had recourse to discussion with a medical colonel named Kodumov. Their discussion led to the use of parapsychology in altering perception. Kodumov informed Stavitski of a program begun at Serbsky Institute near Moscow, which was later adapted at the Sverdlovsk Institute for an experimental program called "Adnure" note 2. Adnure was a program in which captured foreign national subjects were conditioned out of operating from their identities in order to become pliable agents of espionage to be returned to their home countries, responding in all ways as, for example, Americans, but faithful and obedient suppliers to their Soviet “handlers.” note 3. Kodumov informed Stavitski that he thought the KAL 007 passengers would be used for the Adnure program. What is startling is not that the KAL 007 passengers had been definitely placed at the Adnure project facility, but that a medical colonel associated with a scientific institute of the Soviet Union could suggest the real possibility of captured passengers of KAL 007 being found in such a horrendous program.

  4. Congressman Larry McDonald and others

(This information comes mainly from the Israeli "Research Centre for Prisons, Psych-Prisons, and Forced Labor Concentration Camps of the USSR", Director- Avraham Shifrin)

Our knowledge of the whereabouts of members of passengers and crew of Korean Air Lines Flight 007, shot down on August 31, 1983, is based primarily on information received by the Research Centre for Prisons, Psychprisons and Forced Labor Concentration Camps of the USSR. This research center was established by the late Avraham Shifrin, an Israeli who had, himself, spent time in the Soviet prison camp system. As a major in the Red Army and prosecutor for the Krasnodar Region, northeast of the Crimea, he was responsible for sending many to the Gulags. After he himself was convicted on charges of spying for the US and Israel, he was sentenced to ten years on the harshest of prisons; then seven years of exile in Kazakhstan. Mr. Shifrin maintained an extensive network of contacts within the Soviet Union and its successor states. Much of the information that we have was obtained at great personal risk to his contacts.

The Centre’s investigations in 1989 to 1991 determined that the passengers and crew of KAL 007 were taken, upon rescue, to the KGB Coast Guard base on Sakhalin. Within a few days (by September 4, 1983), everyone was taken to the KGB base at Sovetskaja Gavan on the Siberian mainland opposite Sakhalin, roughly 600 miles north of Vladivostok. Here the men, women and children were divided into separate groups. The men and women were taken by train to Tynda on the Baikal-Amur Railway about 800 miles inland where at least some were put to forced labor. The male adults were, at some point, distributed to a number of different camps throughout Siberia some of which were camps thought also to hold American POWs and other foreign prisoners. These camps are identified as camps for foreigners by their total isolation and the lack of villages around them. Normally, when prisoners are released from prison camps they are required to continue living in exile near the prison. Their families join them and villages grow up around the camps. Foreign prisoners are not released; there are, therefore, no villages around their prisons.

Congressman Lawrence P. McDonald, Democrat, 7th District, Georgia, was separated from the rest of the passengers and taken by special air transport to Moscow on or about Sept. 8, 1983. A special KGB guard unit was brought from Khabarovsk to accompany him. The KGB had a fleet of special aircraft, the 910xx series that was used exclusively for transporting high profile prisoners, VIPs, and others requiring the strictest security. These were used for even very short trips rather than using overland transportation.

The child passengers were kept in Sovetskaja Gavan in a specially established isolated temporary orphanage until the end of October. They were then gradually transferred to various orphanages in Vladivostok, Omsk and Barnaul, both near Novosibirsk, and Kazakhstan based on their racial identity. The intent was to assimilate them into the predominant racial populations in these areas.

Congressman McDonald

Upon arrival in Moscow, McDonald was taken to the Lubyanka KGB prison where he was given the designation, “Prisoner Number 3.” While at the Lubyanka, he was kept in isolation, taken from his cell only for questioning. (The halls of Lubyanka are carpeted so that the footsteps of those being led away for questioning cannot be heard in the cells. Everyone is kept under constant observation through peepholes. Those who are allowed a bit of exercise are taken to small fenced in exercise yards on the roofs of the prison high above and invisible from the streets below.) He was interrogated several times by the head of the First Chief Directorate of the KGB, Vladimir Kryuchkov. (Kryuchkov was a member of the core group, the “Gang of Eight”, who sought to seize power from Mikhail Gorbachev in August 1991. He was arrested when the coup failed but was later released. He attended the inauguration of President Vladimir Putin—at Mr. Putin’s personal invitation—in 2000. Mr. Kryuchkov is now an internationally known lecturer.)

Following a number of questionings, Mr. McDonald was moved to the Lefortovo KGB prison also in Moscow for continued interrogation over a period of several months. In Lefortovo, prisoners were kept in cells that were artificially cooled to near freezing temperatures. These cells were about 1.5 meters on a side or roughly 4.5 feet. The dirt floors were submerged in water so that the prisoners either stood or lay down in mud. There might be a slanted bench against which the prisoner could lean with his feet against the opposite wall.

After a time in Lefortovo, Mr. McDonald was then moved to a “dacha” (summer house) in Sukhanova near Moscow where the interrogations continued. Mr. Shifrin’s sources indicated that they had strong reason to believe that, while in Sukhanova, McDonald was interrogated under drugs that may have eventually resulted in identity loss. He was brought eventually to a prison in Karaganda, Kazakhstan, the region where the Soviets had important nuclear missile test ranges and similar installations. He may have been brought to this area to be interrogated by experts there as part of the effort to find out what he could say about the US nuclear program and what he knew about the Soviet program.

Early in 1987, former NSA agent, Jerry Mooney, testified before Congress about the “Moscow Bound” program and the importance of Karaganda as a center of the Soviet nuclear program and an area where certain highly-skilled American POWs with technical knowledge were brought. Following his testimony, the world press focused on this area. In an apparent attempt to keep McDonald’s presence there secret, he was moved in mid-1987, by special transport, to a small prison near the town of Temir-Tau, also in Kazakhstan. The wardens of this prison identified him from a photograph that had been computer-aged to show what he would have looked like at the time. It also showed a scar that runs from his left nostril to the left end of his lip.(For the computer-aged photo of Larry McDonald which was shown to wardens of Kazakhstan's Temir Tau prison see- http://www.rescue007.org/faq.htm#10 )

Here he was given special treatment but was not allowed to communicate with anyone. In the summer of 1990, he was taken to the transportation prison in Karaganda. Here, as an unknown prisoner whose file is sealed by the KGB, he remained. As of 1995, all efforts to obtain additional information from the Karaganda prison have failed. The congressman’s present location is unknown—it may be there or he may have been moved since then.

Child Passengers

Efforts to track down the children of KAL 007 have been very difficult. Many of the youngest ones were probably adopted into local families. Some information was obtained about two young Caucasian sisters, we believe they were the Grenfell children, Stacey and Noelle, ages 3 and 5, of Rochester, NY. It appears that they were placed in an orphanage in Vladivostok until 1990. The older child, at about 12, was sent to Medical School 3, a type of vocational high school, associated with the city hospital in Khabarovsk for training. The girl in question, whom we think is Noelle, graduated from there three years later then was taken elsewhere and her file removed from the school and hospital. At this point, her trail was lost. This information came from the director of the school.

A Female Passenger

Sources provided information on one young Oriental woman who was set to work felling timber in the area of Tynda, Siberia. Prior to 1985, she lost her left arm below the elbow in a work accident. Subsequently, she was sent across the vast Siberian landmass to the extremely isolated village of Nakhodka on the Tazovskaya Guba (Inlet) above the Arctic Circle where she remained until sometime in the late summer of 1991 or 1992. By this time, she was married and had several children. This village consists of some 20-30 houses occupied by local fishermen and a few Russian exiles. The villagers live in sub-human conditions with almost no contact with the outside world. Winter lasts for most of the year and half the year is spent in Arctic darkness. The conditions are so gruesome that the villagers—few of whom speak Russian—care for nothing but survival and vodka.

The villagers of Nakhodka thought that the woman was of indigenous Nenets origin because of her Oriental features. She did not mix with and was generally unknown to them. They were aware that she had been removed by men in authority. This may have been because the KGB had become aware of efforts by Avraham Shifrin and his Research Institute to locate the woman. He had tried to get his people to this village a year earlier, before she was moved, but promised funding to support the effort did not come through. By the time he was able to raise the necessary funds and recruit volunteers for this very dangerous mission, the woman was gone.

An important point to note is that, even when prisoners were released for whatever reason, they were often sent to isolated villages such as Nakhodka. While apparently having freedom of movement, there was no escape from the pervasive KGB scrutiny. The Soviet KGB used local informants to control residents of such villages. The informants were in turn controlled by threats to the safety of family members who were taken into custody for just this purpose—to serve as “leverage.” The KGB would select trusted members of the community to be their informants. They would then test them by having someone utter anti-Soviet remarks in their presence. When an informant did not report such a remark to his KGB “handler”, he would be informed that members of his family would be deprived of food. If it happened again, they would be shot. Shifrin considered the ingenuity of the KGB to be both “diabolical and 100 per cent effective.”

Even though the name has changed, the KGB is still as pervasive and powerful as ever, even though it may keep a lower profile. Russian President Vladimir Putin was with the KGB before entering into politics.

Male Adult Passengers

Sources indicate that most of the male passengers and crew were taken to a series of three ultra-secret prison camps in the dense taiga region along the Amur river near the village of Zapokrovsk not far from the Chinese border. These are the same camps where American POWs were thought to have been located. They are quite extensive. In the winter, smoke can be seen rising from 80-90 smoke stacks—each barracks has two or three stoves, some 30 or more barrack houses. Unfortunately, all efforts to get to the camps and identify passengers visually failed because of the intense security in the area.

Additional camps were in the area of Cita, headquarters of the Far East Theater of Operations of the Soviet military, at Nercinsk, Nercinski Zavod and other locations.

At the time, there were also three other ultra-secret camps for foreign prisoners on Roger’s Bay, Wrangell Island in the Arctic Ocean. Mr. Shifrin had reason to believe that some of the passengers and, especially the crew, may have been taken to Wrangell because of their aeronautical training. These camps have since been abandoned and all inmates moved elsewhere.


Where is a courageous Senator or Congressman who will set himself to the task and see it through to bring our victimized people home again, including their own colleague Rep. Larry McDonald? Where is that astute and persistant Investigative reporter who will probe and probe and probe? Where is the outcry from a citizenry who will not let this rest until whoever has survived, every single one of them, is brought home to his or her family, friends, and country? Where?

The last remaining U.S. independent counsel, David Barrett, after spending $21 million over 10 years, on Jan. 12 finally will close down his investigation of former Housing Secretary Henry Cisneros' lying to FBI investigators about hush money paid to an ex-mistress. The political significance is that the Barrett report's shocking allegations of high-level corruption in the IRS and Justice Department are likely to be concealed from the public and from Congress.

Even though this will happen at 11:00 pm my time (California), I will stay up to listen to this very important debate:

For Immediate Release - From the Wilderness

Boycott Communist China

The use slave labor —

They force abortions under their one child policy - even for women nine months along. Barbarians.

Communist China skins dogs and cats alive and sells the fur to uninformed Americans in sweaters, parka "fur" - all illegally mislabeled. Barbarians.

Docket No. 98932-Agenda 7-September 2005.



VALDY OLENDER et al., Appellees.

Opinion filed December 15, 2005.

CHIEF JUSTICE THOMAS delivered the opinion of the court:

At issue in this case is whether the General Assembly violated the single subject clause of the Illinois Constitution of 1970 (Ill. Const. 1970, art. IV, §8(d)) when it enacted Public Act 88-669 (Pub. Act 88-669, eff. November 29, 1994). The legislation in Public Act 88-669, entitled "An Act in relation to government regulation," amended, among other statutes, section 1301 of the Illinois Income Tax Act (35 ILCS 5/1301 (West 1994)), to state that a first violation of that section is a Class 4 felony and each subsequent violation is a Class 3 felony. The defendants, Valdy and Malgorzata Olender, had been charged under the amended version of section 1301. Defendants moved to dismiss the indictments against them on the ground that section 1301 had been unconstitutionally amended by Public Act 88-669 in violation of the single subject clause. The circuit court of Cook County granted defendants' motions to dismiss. The State appealed directly to this court pursuant to Supreme Court Rule 302(a) (134 Ill. 2d R. 302(a)). For
the following reasons, we affirm the judgment of the circuit court and hold that Public Act 88-669 violates the single subject clause.

Money Lawsuit - Canada

The Canadian people are being plundered as we the people with the central bank scam. This may turn out to be a landmark case, but if their judges are anything like America's federal judges - rotten and corrupt - they will have a rough time:

New Westminster, B.C., April 15, 2005. John Ruiz Dempsey BSCr, LL.B, a criminologist and forensic litigation specialist filed a class action suit on behalf of the People of Canada alleging that financial institutions are engaged in illegal creation of money. The complaint filed Friday April 15, 2005 in the Supreme Court of British Columbia at New Westminster, alleges that all financial institutions who are in the business of lending money have engaged in a deliberate scheme to defraud the borrowers by lending non-existent money which are illegally created by the financial institutions out of “thin air.” Dempsey claims that creation of money out of nothing is ultra vires these defendants’ charter or granted corporate power and therefore void and all monies loaned under false pretence contravenes the Criminal Code. The suit which is the first of its kind ever filed in Canada which could involve millions of Canadians alleges that the contracts entered into between the People (“the borrowers”) and the financial institutions were void or void able and have no force and effect due to anticipated breach and for non-disclosure of material facts. Dempsey says the transactions constitutes counterfeiting and money laundering in that the source of money, if money was indeed advanced by the defendants and deposited into the borrowers’ accounts, could not be traced, nor could not be explained or accounted for.

Rescue 007: New message from the International Director

Subject: Rescue 007: New message from the International Director

Dear Folks,

It's been some time now since the last letter to you about progress "for the rescue". Shortly, I will be updating you on what really interests us the most - the actual progress for the efforts to bring the surviving passengers and crew of KAL 007 back home, but for now, another step forward in the uncovering of the enormous deception the Soviets played on the US and its allies in the Soviet's supposedly sincere underwater search for KAL 007 and its people - the subterfuge to make us think that they had not retrieved "black boxes", plane and people.

But first, as you know, we have pointed out that the Soviet hierarchy at the highest levels knew and spoke about this deception to one another. We know this from the 1992 release of the first President of the Russian Federation, Boris Yeltsin (http://www.rescue007..org/TopSecretMemos.htm). And then on September 1, 2003, the Deputy Director of the Russian Federation State Archives of Recent History confirmed the Soviet pretense of search for KAL 007 while they knew all along where the plane was (http://www.rescue007.org/anniversary_commentary.htm). We have detailed elsewhere how this Russian ruse was carried out and just how early it was begun (http://www.rescue007.org/ruse.htm).

And now this step forward in uncovering the Soviet deception -

This information comes to us from Leonid Antseliovich, designer of the Sukhoi 15 TM - the Soviet interceptor which downed KAL 007. Mr. Antseliovich, now residing in the U.S., directed us to the August 31, 2005, edition of the influential Russian newspaper Moscowsky Komsomolets in which Russian military historian Alexander Kolesnikov quotes one of the key players in the downing of KAL 007 - General Ivan Tretyak. General Tretyak was the Commander of the Far East Military District in 1983, later to be promoted to commander of the Far East Theater of Operations, and the superior officer of two other key players in the shootdown, General Kornukov and General Kamensky. General Tretyak, aside from his position in the Military Command, held a high political position - member of the Central Committee of the CPSU - and as such was privy to many of the decisions made of national importance. As is often the case with Russian communications and "trial disclosures", short admissions prove highly significant for next steps. Here is military historian Alexander Kolesnikov's quote from General Tretyak -

Ivan Tretyak:

We had decided to provide the Americans with a "false point of falling", and indicated this location by the presence of our ships. They "took the bait". They started for there with ships and helicopters. It so happened, that one helicopter fell in this area... (verified by Admiral Walter Piotti, Commander of Task Force 71 of the U.S. 7th Fleet in his After Action Report).

When will we wake up and pay attention to the words of the people who implicate themselves, even after many years? When will we take action based on what we know, on what we have come to learn, to make a difference in this world? When will we move, and get others to move to bring back the surviving passengers and crew of KAL 007 - and 22 children who were, at the time of the shootdown, under the age of 12?
