JAMES MADISON QUOTE - 1822

"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."

Scottsboro Personnel Board Hearing, Feb 21, 2013

 
Results of the Personnel Board Hearing, City of Scottsboro at 5PM Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013: At approximately 12 noon on Feb 22, 2013 I had a discussion with Mayor Potter concerning the outcome of the Personnel Board hearing relating  to Ms. Caroline Starr.  "The Personnel Board ruled in favor of Ms. Starr, her personnel record is to be expunged and all pay is to be reinstated," said Mayor Potter. Mayor Potter was asked if a written cash control policy has been implemented, the Mayor replied: "As soon as we discovered the missing money and we discovered there was no written policy we implemented a written cash control policy." The Mayor was not sure of the exact date of the cash control policy implementation but indicated it was mid year 2012.
 
The missing money involved Jill Sharee Dover, 36 of Henagar who was charged with first degree theft in connection with $12,000 reported missing from the court system during the middle of May. Ms. Dover plead guilty to the charge. http://arklite.blogspot.com/2012/07/arrest-in-scottsboro-municipal-court.html

TVA CEO - BILL "DaNuke" JOHNSON


                    "There is no safe dose of radiation." Dr. Ian Fairlie
During 'normal' operations, nuclear power plants release radioactive poisons into our air and water – poisons that are known to cause genetic mutations, birth defects and cancer, especially in children. This is not medical-grade radiation, but some of the most toxic poisons known to man, poisons that build up in our gene pool and our food chain.
.
TVA BOARD MEETING HIGHLIGHTS


Clean nuclear power ? A total of 94,777 unique individual nuclear workers sick, dead or dying are represented by the 160,322 nuclear worker cases reported since the 2001 Energy Employees Occupational Illness Program Act for nuclear workers. The site link listed below is updated weekly. Prior to the 2001 passage date nuclear worker sickness,death and suffering of employees and familes was kept secret.The current statistics do not include all of the nuclear fuel sites nor reactor sites in the United States where employee contamination has sickened and killed workers. The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Program was codified in 2001 http://www.dol.gov/owcp/energy/regs/compliance/weeklystats.htm
Contamination events at nuclear sites are not followed up on by the NRC and published for public review as to outcomes of contaminated patients. .

Newtown, Connecticut Shooter Adam Lanza - Another LIBOR Fraud Connection Or Is The Real Connection Psychiatric Medication?

 THE LANZA FAMILY
CNN article: http://www.cnn.com/2012/12/15/us/connecticut-lanza-family-profile/index.html



Adam Lanza's father, Peter Lanza is the tax director/VP for General Electric and General Electric Energy Financial Services. http://www.linkedin.com/pub/peter-lanza/11/515/83b   General Electric Financial Services: http://www.geenergyfinancialservices.com/ 

General Electric, the multi-national company that reaped $14.2 billion in profits last year. Though G.E. is the largest corporation in the U.S., it did not have to pay a dime in U.S. taxes according to the New York Times. In fact, the company claimed $3.2 billion in tax benefits.
New York Time article: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/25/business/economy/25tax.html?pagewanted=1&_r=2&ref=business

According to reports Peter Lanza was scheduled to testify to the Senate in the ongoing global LIBOR scandal just as Robert Holmes the father of Aurora Colorado movie theater shooter James Holmes was scheduled to testify before the Senate Committee investigating the LIBOR scandel which is reported to be the biggest fraud case in the history of the world. http://www.examiner.com/article/libor-scandal-reveals-frightening-connection-to-mass-shootings-of-2012 Is this true or more subterfuge? The amount of intentional misinformation concerning this case is significant.

The statistical probability of the two mass murderer's fathers connections to the LIBOR case is astronomical.

THE LIBOR DIAGRAM (from the dailypaul.com)


The London Interbank Offered Rate, known as LIBOR, is the average interest rate at which banks can borrow from each other. 16 international banks have been implicated in this ongoing scandal, accused of rigging contracts worth trillions of dollars.

THE BOTTOM LINE: Connections and Cause - LIBOR, banking fraud, firearms or the real story, psychiatric medication:
"In the last six months, there have been at least three horrific shootings in public places that have been perpetrated by young men in their 20’s, who were taking or had taken psychiatric med’s...Prior to the public shooting events of this year, there were 14 similar events in years prior. All fourteen of these shootings were committed by someone taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs, and while not all of them were in their 20′s they were in their high teens. There is a clear pattern that we should be wary of: All of the shooters were in their teens or twenties and were dealing with prescribed psychiatric drugs indicating mental health issues were present. It is also possible that these drugs contributed to the violence.  http://www.treatment4addiction.com/blog/conditions-and-disorders/connecticut-school-shooting-points-to-a-disturbing-link-between-age-psychiatric-meds-and-mass-shootings/
