Rex Curry cited in new book on Drug Detection Dog Training & Libertarian Lawyers [26 Oct 2014|09:39am]

rexcurrydotnet
Secrets about drug dogs are revealed in this book by the author Ian Tinny, with information gleaned from Attorney Rex Curry. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MQ3ZYVE
image
An exposé of drug detection dog training should begin with the best advice: How to avoid the dogs entirely. The way to avoid drug dogs is: Avoid the police. This book explains how.
Next, this book exposes how drug dogs are used for lies. They are used to fabricate “probable cause” for searches (searches of cars, other conveyances, objects, and packages). Judges write clueless opinions about how accurate a drug dog is, and they overlook this point: Police can lie and say that the dogs alert when the dogs don’t alert at all.
The author Ian Tinny also released the sensational exposé “Pledge of Allegiance + Swastika Secrets” -a semi biographical work about the renowned historian who revealed (1) the Pledge of Allegiance was the origin of the Nazi salute and Nazi behavior, and (2) how German socialists (Nazis) used the swastika to represent crossed “S” letters for “socialism.”
Before becoming a full-time writer, Ian Tinny was a part-time instructor to the United States Probation Office and to federal judges, and his work led to the arrest, trial, conviction, and imprisonment of America’s Dumbest Criminals.
Tinny is also the author of a classic science fiction tale revealing an amazing discovery about time travel.

Russian newspapers about "Langley-gate" [22 Jul 2009|01:55am]

kornet_7
Washington is witnessing a scandal unfolding between the US Congress and the C.I.A., triggered by the testimony of Leon Panetta, the head of the C.I.A., that over the past eight years his agency has not provided complete information about the most significant intelligence activities to the corresponding Congress Committees.

On 12th July the C.I.A. issue took a new turn. The New York Times wrote that according to the statement of Leon Panetta, the Central Intelligence Agency withheld information about a secret counter-terrorism programme on the direct order of the former Vice-President Dick Cheney. As a result, chairmen of Congress committees are getting more insistent on their summons to conduct an investigation of the matter and to find out the roles of George Bush (former US President) and Dick Cheney in it.

According to The New York Times, one of the most reputed newspapers, Leon Panetta has admitted behind closed doors to the House Intelligence Committee of the House of Representatives that the C.I.A. concealed “significant actions” from the Congress from 2001 until April this year. The Democratic lawmakers' letter, which they sent to Mr. Panetta, asked him to officially confirm his statement. The Washington Times informs that Mr. Leon Panetta refused to do so, saying that he was not to judge the C.I.A. activity during the period preceding his directorship.

The experts say that the Republicans countered the Democrats’ statement, saying that the latter misinterpreted Leon Panetta’s statement. Peter Hoekstra, the House Intelligence Committee's senior Republican, explained that Mr. Panetta’s statement referred only to a few C.I.A. activities and plans - at the certain stage of those activities the CIA was under no obligation to disclose the information about them to the Congress.

This matter is currently the subject of heated discussions among the politicians of USA. POLITICO, a US information portal, stated that Thomas Whalen, an associate professor of Social Sciences in Boston University, confirmed that intelligence services spend billions of US dollars and nobody controlled the expenditure. John Hostetler, a former Republican Congressman, commented that the publications make a common reader believe that the C.I.A. had indeed lied to the White House long before the start of the operation in Iraq.

Elizabeth Sherman, a lawyer, considers that Mr. Panetta’s statement makes it necessary to conduct a special hearing to find out who ordered the C.I.A. to lie to the Congress. We owe a debt of gratitude to C.I.A. director Leon Panetta, she said, for bringing this matter to the attention of the public. Julian Zelizer, a profession in Princeton University, also said that the C.I.A. must not function without control. In his view, the Congress must conduct an investigation and take appropriate measures to prevent the repetition of such instances in the future. Lanny Davis, a Democratic Party consultant, believes it necessary to find out the degree of involvement of Vice-President Dick Cheney, and, perhaps, of President George Bush as well.

The Republicans took a different stand. Bradley Blakeman, a Republican Party consultant, gave an ambiguous comment saying that if Americans believe that the C.I.A. misled the Congress intentionally, then the Congress must arrange an urgent hearing on that matter and the Ministry of Justice should conduct the investigation.

Martin Frost, a former Democratic Congressman, probably in the attempt to support his people, insisted that it is in the interest of the Congress to know “the whole story”. In his interpretation, the C.I.A. does not tell lies, but it just does not disclose the whole truth to the Congressmen, unless asked.

Anyway, this issue might become another long-term scandal in American history, and perhaps the future generations will refer to it as the “Langley-gate”.

USA influenced National Socialist German Workers Party. And badly. [13 Jul 2009|08:41am]

rexcurrydotnet
The notorious American and National Socialist Edward Bellamy authored the socialist utopian fantasy "Equality." The popularity of Bellamy's eugenic utopia coincided with Alfred Ploetz's formulation of a scientific method for its realization. Ploetz (August 22, 1860 – March 20, 1940) was a German physician and eugenicist known for coining the term racial hygiene (Rassenhygiene) and promoting the concept in Germany. Many German socialists responded enthusiastically to Bellamy's vision as offering the basis in evolutionary terms for a classless world community or Volksgemeinschaft. http://rexcurry.net/pledgenazis.html

Edward was the cousin and cohort of Francis Bellamy, also a socialist, and the author of the "Pledge of Allegiance" to the flag. The Nazi salute originated in America from Francis Bellamy's pledge, as shown in the work of Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets"). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BssWWZ3XEe4

The arm extended straight out was an early way of saluting the American flag during the pledge. People would raise their right hand to their forehead and perform the standard military salute at the pledge's beginning, and then at the words "to my flag", extend their arm straight out. It was not an ancient Roman salute, although that is a popular myth (The Roman salute myth is most likely due in part to Victorian era historians romanticizing details of ancient history). http://rexcurry.net/edward%20bellamy.jpg

The National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis) adapted the gesture from Americans. The Eugenics movement in Britain and America was one of Hitler's inspirations for genocide, just as his salute was inspired by the American salute. http://rexcurry.net/swastika3swastika.jpg

I've been thinking, and it seems to me that any president would likely have made war on the Taliban regime in Afghanistan after the attacks of 9-11, but the war in Iraq was optional. How can we explain that policy choice?

2 questions regarding US presidency. [16 Feb 2007|12:55pm]

yeuxfumeux
1). In explaining or predicting presidential behavior, do all of you feel that the most important things to know are the party of the president, and the powers allotted to him in the Constitution? Do other aspects matter?

2). Do U.S. rules and practices for the nomination and election of presidents encourage the selection of good leaders who govern constitutionally, make decisions after careful deliberation and weighing of alternatives, and represent the best available political talent in the U.S.?



I'm curious to hear what others think. Feel free to answer one question or both.

On the off chance anyone is still confused on this subject who is reading this...

The right to freedom of speech, religion, etc. does not entitle you or I to censor things that make us uncomfortable, or with which we do not agree. It entitles the bearer of that religion/opinion/etc. to share it whether it offends/frightens/discomfits someone or not.

People in this country are thinking about these freedoms, essentially, backwards. Political correctness will be the undoing of our liberty faster than anything else.

Every time someone wins one of these false victories and manages to get something in this category censored, it puts a chink in the armor of our rights. It weakens the constitution and the ideals upon which this country was based. Just because the opinion is one of a perceived majority, or is unfavorable to you, does not invalidate it. It also does not make it anything other than an opinion. If you begin to attack the ability to express these opinions which differ from your own, you are also attacking your own ability to express opinions. Just as we all have the right to say/print/worship what and as we wish, we all have the right to not listen/read/ascribe to those things, as we wish. We also, if we wish, have the right to attempt to change those opinions with which we disagree.

There is a concept in the law of this country called precedence. When we put these chinks in one another's rights, we set a precedent. Using that precedent, someone can then turn around and censor us, or alter our rights; weaken our protections. We do not, and should not want to have the right to censor one another, because if you can censor someone else, they can censor you. We should cultivate thick skin and surety in our own opinions so that we do not feel threatened by the thought of the expression of another's opinion changing our own.

This does not apply to anything which could be construed as assault, either verbal or physical, I should disclaim. Those fall under the law in their own category, without needing any other justification for punishment.

Are We Going Too Far? [15 Apr 2006|06:41am]

[ mood | curious ]

So I just heard a news report about yet another female in a teaching role (she's a TA, from what I understand, as opposed to being a full-fledged teacher, which leads me to believe she is young--20s, maybe) having a sexual relationship with a student. Not her student. Just a student at the same school where she works. This time, the 'boy' in question is a 19-year-old senior.

Discuss.

Don't Forget to Wrap Your Penis in a Garbage Bag [02 Sep 2005|11:35am]

thefortunateson
The Bush administration is sending a very clear message to Ugandan people: Your penis is garbage- not worth saving.

Picture this: A romantic, albeit humble dinner for two, a little kissing, light petting (inside or outside of marriage - what's a little fun?), maybe some music. Two consenting adults who would like to put on a condom. They're smart enough to want to protect themselves. These people are in the mood. Maybe they should abstain. Maybe he should send this lovely girl home and splash some cold water on himself because the U.S. government has already budgeted about $8 million this year toward NOT PROTECTING PEOPLE!

What does the young Ugandan couple do? They wrap it in a garbage bag and hope for the best! Thanks PEPFAR!



"U.S. abstinence push may be hurting AIDS fight"
U.N. official says policy is leading to severe shortage of life-saving condoms

Updated: 2:19 p.m. ET Aug. 29, 2005

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - The U.S. government’s emphasis on abstinence-only programs to prevent AIDS is hobbling Africa’s battle against the pandemic by downplaying the role of condoms, a senior U.N. official said on Monday.

*I would like, just once, for the Bush administration to sacrifice idealogy in favor of effectiveness.

Bush Bashing Fizzles... [02 Aug 2005|01:42am]

Wow, according to this story, we must have gotten tired of squawking about what a big dumb fuckhead our president is.

The American people have shouted themselves hoarse against this folksy dimwit/idealogue long enough to get discouraged. Hey, here's another insult to the American people that goes by the name of Bolton (not the singer).

For fuck's sake man, how much longer?

The Global Struggle Against Extremism [28 Jul 2005|01:02am]

noncognosco
Tonight, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart reported that the Bush administration has ditched the "War on Terror" slogan in favor of a newer and more palatable term, "Global Struggle Against Extremism". I thought about this for a while. I'm generally against extremism. I've decided that finally the Bush team has come up with something I can sign onto. And I can't think of a better example of extremism right here in America than the extreme right-wing Christian Coalition-types who are increasingly taking over our government.

I hereby pledge to aid the Global Struggle Against Extremism by promoting gay rights and voting for Democratic candidates in 2006.

I urge everyone who reads this post to join the Global Struggle Against Extremism. You all know of extremists, either in your town or anywhere around the world. Post the ways in which you are helping to fight extremism and spread to word. Remember: the Global Struggle Against Extremism starts at home.

Another Thoughtless Loudmouth Guy Lacking Restraint [19 Jul 2005|09:52pm]

thefortunateson
Don't feel bad, Congressman Tancredo, I think we've all said stupid, regrettable things at some point or another...

We'll just have to accept your apologies later, or else maybe you've been misunderstood. Clearly, someone must have taken your comments out of context and twisted whatever it was you were trying to say. You didn't mean that. Afterall, you are a culturally sensitive American in a position of power. Maybe you'll tell us that you've done some soul searching and say something about being regretful... blah blah blah... At any rate, it's time to start backtracking, Congressman Tancredo. Be sure and mention that you have Muslim friends.

"Congressman Threatens Islamic Holy Sites"

"Well, what if you said something like — if this happens in the United States, and we determine that it is the result of extremist, fundamentalist Muslims, you know, you could take out their holy sites," Tancredo answered.

"You're talking about bombing Mecca," Campbell said.

"Yeah," Tancredo responded.

Thoughts? [15 Jul 2005|05:55pm]

I received this in an e-mail from a friend. What do you think? Please comment! :)



TO THOSE OF YOU NOT FAMILIAR WITH JOE ARPAIO HE IS THE MARICOPA ARIZONA COUNTY SHERIFF AND HE KEEPS GETTING ELECTED OVER AND OVER.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio (in Arizona) who created the "tent city jail":

He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for
them.

He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jails. Took away their weights. Cut off all but "G" movies.

He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city projects.

Then he started chain gangs for women so he wouldn't get sued for discrimination.

He took away cable TV until he found out there was a federal court order that required cable TV for jails. So he hooked up the cable TV again only let in the Disney channel and the weather channel.

When asked why the weather channel he replied, so they will know how hot it's gonna be while they are working on my chain gangs.

He cut off coffee since it has zero nutritional value.

When the inmates complained, he told them, "This isn't the Ritz/Carlton. If you don't like it, don't come back."

He bought Newt Gingrich' lecture series on videotape that he pipes into the jails.

When asked by a reporter if he had any lecture series by a Democrat, he replied that a democratic lecture series might explain why a lot of the inmates were in his jails in the first place.

More on the Arizona Sheriff:

With temperatures being even hotter than usual in Phoenix (116 degrees just set a new record), the Associated Press reports: About 2,000 inmates living in a barbed-wire-surrounded tent encampment at the Maricopa County Jail have been given permission to strip down to their government-issued pink boxer shorts.

On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on their bunk beds or chatted in the tents, which reached 138 degrees inside the week before.

Many were also swathed in wet, pink towels as sweat collected on their chests and dripped down to their pink socks.

"It feels like we are in a furnace," said James Zanzot, an inmate who has lived in the tents for 1 = years. "It's inhumane."

Joe Arpaio, the tough-guy sheriff who created the tent city and long ago started making his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates: "It's 120 degrees in Iraq and our soldiers are living in tents too, and they have to wear full battle gear, but they didn't commit any crimes, so shut your damned mouths!"

Way to go, Sheriff! Maybe if all prisons were like this one there would be a lot less crime and/or repeat offenders. Criminals should be punished for their crimes - not live in luxury until it's time for their parole, only to go out and commit another crime so they can get back in to live on taxpayers money and enjoy things taxpayers can't afford to have for themselves.

Sheriff Joe was just reelected Sheriff in Maricopa County, Arizona
