Microphones on the Senate floor Tuesday picked up the Colorado Democrat between votes suggesting that the lame-duck session is "rigged."
"It's all rigged," Bennet told a colleague. "I mean, the
whole conversation's rigged. The fact that we don't get a discussion before the
break about what we're going to do in the lame duck -- it's just rigged. This
House clears Indian, black farmer settlements
American Indian landowners and black farmers who for years have waited for
Washington to address their claims of government mistreatment won a hard-fought
victory Tuesday as Congress cleared legislation to pay the groups $4.6 billion
to settle a pair of historic class-action lawsuits.
The measure passed the House in a 256-152 vote and now goes to President Barack Obama, who promised during his campaign to work toward resolving the long-standing disputes and others involving the government's past discrimination against minorities.
In a statement, Obama applauded the bill's passage and said he would continue working to resolve other lingering complaints of historic discrimination, including from women and Hispanic farmers.

U.S. Army Unveils 'Revolutionary' XM25 Rifle in Afghanistan
Since the dawn of modern warfare, the best way to stay alive in the face of
incoming fire has been to take cover behind a wall. But thanks to a
game-changing "revolutionary" rifle, the U.S. Army has made that tactic dead on
arrival. Now the enemy can run, but he can't hide.
After years of development, the U.S. Army has unleashed a new weapon in Afghanistan -- the XM25 Counter Defilade Target Engagement System, a high-tech rifle that can be programmed so that its 25-mm. ammunition detonates either in front of or behind a target, meaning it can be fired just above a wall before it explodes and kills the enemy.
It also has a range of roughly 2,300 feet -- nearly the length of eight football fields -- making it possible to fire at targets well past the range of the rifles and carbines that most soldiers carry today.
---- Mark my words, this will be used against real americans fighting for
The middle east/Asia is just the NWO's practice ground.
New Jersey man serving 7 years for guns he owned legally
When Mount Laurel police arrived at the Aitkens' home on Jan. 2, 2009, they called Brian - who was driving to Hoboken - and asked him to return to his parents' home because they were worried. When he arrived, the cops checked his Honda Civic and, inside the trunk, in a box stuffed into a duffel bag with clothes, they found two handguns, both locked and unloaded as New Jersey law requires.
My posted comments --- I must slightly disagree with the father. The
'disgrace' to society is that the creatures who wrote these laws weren't
immediately dragged from the legislature and executed for treason, that the
LEOs, shysters and black-robed shysters involved weren't treated similarly.
As for the woman who so thoughtlessly turned this victim of tyranny over to the police state, she deserves a Louisville slugger up-side her head.
Any simple minded sheeple who agrees with this tyranny needs to move to England or China or some other socialist police state where they belong or face "Liberal" season when it comes.
We must conduct a thorough "Liberal"(commie) season in this country before it's too late.
It's way past time for self-proclaimed 'conservatives' and 'libertarians' to wake up and buck up and stiffen their backbones for what will be required to fix this country. Hint: It will take more than a few election cycles. Think Normandy.

Despite massive protests, US Senate passes S 510 Food Safety Bill
The new Food Tyranny Act — called the “Food Safety Modernization Act” in the
U.S. Senate — has been passed by the senate today. It would give the FDA vast
new powers to criminalize and imprison farmers and food producers while doing
absolutely nothing to address to real root of the food contamination problem:

Commie care survives legal challenge by Christian college
The suit, brought by Liberty University and five individuals, claimed the

Ten Things You Need To Know About S.3827, The DREAM Act
Proponents of the DREAM Act frequently claim the bill offers relief only to
illegal alien “kids.” Incredibly, previous versions of the DREAM Act had no age
limit at all, so illegal aliens of any age who satisfied the Act’s
requirements—not just children—could obtain lawful permanent resident (LPR)
status. In response to this criticism, S.3827 includes a requirement that aliens
be under the age of 35 on the date of enactment to be eligible for LPR status.
Even with this cap, many aliens would be at least 41 years old before obtaining
full LPR status under the Act—hardly the “kids” the Act’s advocates keep talking
U.S. warned people to avoid mystery missile zone
The Department of Defense is slamming the door on questions about the mysterious contrail filmed Nov. 8 by a KCBS television crew near Los Angeles after questions were raised about a warning from the National Geo-Spatial Intelligence Agency that there could be missiles fired in that area at that time.
Federal Reserve's 'astounding' report: We loaned banks trillions
The Federal Reserve has lifted its veil of secrecy regarding
special lending programs during the financial crisis, responding to a mandate
from Congress by revealing the specifics of transactions with firms like Goldman
Sachs and Citigroup.
Critics of the Federal Reserve are poring over the data, seeking red flags regarding potential improprieties. And Congress has asked its Government Accountability Office to sift through the numbers and offer its own analysis.
At the same time, it's possible that the release of details will end up largely vindicating the Fed for the massive financial support that it gave the economy at a time of severe stress. The emergency loans, in the view of many finance experts, helped to avert a much deeper economic slump. And those loans have now been largely paid back without losses to the central bank.
Most overhyped black Friday in history a dud?
The shopping day that was supposed to signal the renaissance of the US
consumer, and justify the massive overhiring by US retailers (not to mention the
completely dislocated from reality surge in stock price for razor thin margin
retailers like Amazon), is increasingly seeming to be a dud. WSJ
reports, citing channel checker ShopperTrak, that "Black Friday sales rose
only slightly from a year ago even though more shoppers visited stores, retail
traffic monitor ShopperTrak said Saturday, setting the stage for another
uncertain holiday season for retailers. Sales increased 0.3% to $10.7 billion,
according to ShopperTrak, which installs monitoring devices in stores to gauge

Marxist front group accuses World Net Daily of 'violent rhetoric'
The Southern Poverty Law Center has targeted WND with one of its
SPLC, a self-styled "civil rights" organization, has attempted to discredit WND by associating the organization with a group that indulged in a negligible amount of over-the-top rhetoric.
SPLC has come under fire in the past for using a political bullying technique called "bracketing," in which a respectable organization is smeared by linking it to racist or violent groups. Just last week, WND reported on SPLC efforts to "bracket" the nation's most prestigious pro-family organizations by labeling them "haters" of homosexuals.

Quote for the times
"Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should
not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all
experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while
evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms
to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and
usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to
reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their
duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their
future security." -
The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America,
Adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776
(To the Founders, 'state' meant independent sovereign nation state,
that was voluntarily entering into the union and could theoretically un-volunteer later.)
