Not to worry. Active military contribute more to Ron Paul than to all other candidates combined. They know what's going on. The problem is whether their fascist leaders will let them board homebound planes...because...because...blue helmets are coming to Amerika.

I fear that the number of people in the Matrix far outnumbers those of us who have taken the Red Pill.

The people hooked into the Matrix, and the operators of it, will do anything and everything to stay in it and keep it running.

“A fire broke out backstage in a theatre. The clown came out to warn the public; they thought it was a joke and applauded. He repeated the warning; the acclaim was even greater. I think that's just how the world will come to an end: to general applause from wits who believe it's a joke.”

As I posted elsewhere, this is a classic long con. Fulford is steping up his game to cash in by way of fraud.

Don't get me wrong, I love his stories and I'm sure he will clean house on this one.

http://www.quatloos.com/morganthau_bonds.htm

They're recycling the particulars of this scam from 10 years ago... the whole saga is a smokescreen to bilk a few unsuspecting investors with an "inside angle" into buying fake bonds. 

If it walks like horse shit and talks like horse shit, it's horse shit. But truly this isn't even horse shit. It's a back story in creation to facilitate a con job, Not worthy of zerohedge...

In its review of Gold Warriors: America's Secret Recovery of Yamashita's Gold (one of the alleged gold hoards talked about here), which dealt with allegations that post World War II the CIA had misappropriated billions of dollars of Japanese war loot, BBC History Magazine noted that whilst "numerous gaps remain.... this is an important story, with far-reaching implications, that deserves to receive further attention".
