Bush Family Nazi Connections

I first starting hearing about this story before the 2004 election, by the director of the Holocaust Museum, who was doing research on how Nazi money was laundered out of the country in 1945 in the last days of the war. He then came upon a dummy coporation set up in the Netherlands, and then linked it to Prescott Bush's firm in New York. He estimates about 1.5 million dollars at the time was illegally laundered out of Nazi Germany through this dummy corporation and filled the coffers of Wall Street.

Big Brother is Tracking You!

This is a link to a Newsweek article on how the Federal Government is tracking the users of cellphones' location in real time!

This is no longer a conspiracy theory, just an actual conspiracy. In Orwell's 1984, it was "Big Brother is Watching You" now it's "Big Brother is Tracking You"

The Age of Big Brother is here. Now while I'm not opposed to federal investigators trying to track corrupt public officials and human traffickers, such a vast erosion of civil liberties is slippery slope to overly pervasive government and corporate control over the lives of ordinary citizens. Where does the line get drawn as to who the enemy of the state will be? Since rich and powerful smugglers usually have little to no problem bribing, coerecing or otherwise corrupting public officials with their power, influence, and cash, (so they can afford themselves at the least some protection) what happens to local community groups opposed to official policy?

If activity under the Bush Regime is any indication we can be assured that small local activist groups will be targeted while CIA agents (gun runners, human and drug traffickers, and terrorist) will run free.
