calderon links US to mexico drug trade
from afp: Mexican President Felipe Calderon hit back in an interview at charges his government is failing in its war against drug cartels, saying corruption in the United States is also to blame. With murders among feuding Mexican drug cartels on the rise and demand for cocaine and other drugs north of the border, Calderon said the United States should take a hard look at itself before pointing the finger at anyone else. "The main cause of the problems associated with organized crime is having the world's biggest consumer next to us," Calderon told AFP in an interview Wednesday. "Drug trafficking in the United States is fueled by the phenomenon of corruption on the part of the American authorities," he said, calling on U.S. President Barack Obama to step up the fight against drugs in his own country. Calderon admitted some Mexican officials had helped cartels, but urged the United States to consider how many of its officials have been implicated.
church document encourages congregation to obey government
from paul joseph watson: A shocking document has come to light from a church in Ohio which educates its congregation that Barack Obama’s presidency is appointed by God and that Obama himself is “God’s minister,” in another perversion of Romans 13, the bible verse cited as an excuse for Christians not to oppose tyranny. Ohio District Superintendent Rev. John Wooton was responsible for distributing the pamphlet, which was handed out at the Assembly of God church in Ohio, according to a reader who forwarded the document to us. Click here for the PDF file [84kb PDF]. “This was handed out at the Assembly of God church that my fiance and I used to attend. We immediately stopped attending after getting this flier about 'submitting to Obama and the government'... The pastor even brought children to the front of the church, encouraging them to submit to teachers, firemen, and the police. It was insane.”
military may patrol bar zone in canadian city
from paul joseph watson: Authorities in Barrie, Ontario are considering a proposal to allow troops to patrol bar areas on weekends in a supposed attempt to prevent rowdiness, another example of the militarization of law enforcement and the public being conditioned to accept martial law. “City police and Camp Borden officers are discussing using joint street patrols to help keep the peace in Barrie’s busy entertainment district on peak weekends,” reports the Toronto Star, as part of a move to “cement the base’s partnership with Barrie police” (police and military merging into one enforcement unit). “Teaming up with military police to patrol the bar zone is a concept 'we wouldn’t have any real problems with,' Barrie chief Wayne Frechette said in an interview. 'Would extra bodies help us? Sure.'”
change for the worse: a banana republic by 2012?
from paul craig roerts: President Obama has presented the most irresponsible budget in US history. His fiscal year 2010 budget projects federal spending of $3.5 trillion and a federal deficit of $1.75 trillion. In other words, 50 percent of the government’s budget consists of red ink... The US might not even make it to 2012 before it is a banana republic.
