Anti Graft and Corruption in the Philippines

It is easy to imagine how the memory of the way the Spanish colonizers ruled the colony was deeply imprinted in the minds of the Filipinos who the Americans eventually allowed to run the government, Filipinos who were already alive during the latter part of the Spanish rule. …many of the petty officials during the Spanish colonial period…. …followed the bad example of their superiors: they likewise devoted themselves to self-enrichment while serving their terms of office in the Spanish colonial government. These may have been the Filipinos who eventually filled important positions during the Commonwealth period,

when the Americans “Filipinized” their colonial government in the Philippines. They must have continued their corrupt ways, which were eventually followed by others in government who saw that corruption often pays off. “Follow the leader,” to this day, has not ended. The saddest thing about it is not that corrupt people get rich, but the innocent, and even honest, people get victimized.

“How developed our infrastructure would be, how advanced our agriculture, how vibrant our trade, and how rich our country and people if there were no graft and corruption in the government!”

The Anti Red Tape Act

The Supreme Court has the final authority to interpret the Constitution. It can set aside any law — federal, state, or local — that a majority of the justices believes conflicts with any part of the Constitution.

The Heritage Guide to the Constitution

This guide is the first of its kind, and presents the U.S. Constitution as never before, including a clause-by-clause analysis of the document, each amendment and relevant court case, and the documents that serve as the foundation of the Constitution.

“The Constitution,” pledged George Washington,
“is the guide which I will never abandon.” Can we say the same today?

  1. Abolish all taxes except sales tax. Make it simple: You buy, you pay. Benefits: No more IRS, no more months wasted preparing annual taxes, no more mountains of government red tape. Nations have rebelled over far less taxation or fewer days of slavery, including thirteen American colonies.
  2. Forgive all debt—both nationally and individually. Time to start over folks. Under Biblical law, the release of debts came at the end of seven years: Read the rest of this entry »

FBI File photo of bin Laden.

Ten years of messages and interviews with al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden have been leaked. Translated by the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the documents were posted on a blog Friday.

Posted to Secrecy News blog on September 12, and copied to similar sites including Wikileaks.org, the ten years of messages span from 1994-2004. The packet, issued in 2004, is nearly 300 pages, and labeled “official use only”. It was translated by the Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS), a division of the CIA, and includes interviews with bin Laden from various news agencies and also includes messages he sent directly to the United States.

One message includes bin Laden’s denial of having anything to do with the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania. Read the rest of this entry »

NATO official: Bin Laden living comfortably in Pakistan

By Zachary Roth zachary Roth Mon Oct 18, 12:03 pm ET

Osama Bin LadenOsama bin Laden is living comfortably in northwest Pakistan, protected by local tribespeople and some members of the country’s intelligence service, a NATO official has told CNN. The news undercuts the U.S. government’s depiction of the al-Qaida leader as on the run, one terror expert tells The Upshot.

U.S. intelligence officials have long believed that bin Laden is living in the remote tribal region of northwest Pakistan. But at times, the government has also claimed that the al-Qaida leader has had to move frequently from one safehouse to another, impairing his ability to plot attacks.

The NATO official’s comments undermine that claim, Michael Scheuer, a former special adviser to the chief of the CIA’s bin Laden unit, told The Upshot. “It exposes the lie that Bush and Obama have been telling us since 9/11, that he was running from rock to rock and cave to cave,” Scheuer said.

John Witherspoon’s Essay on Money (1786) and his warnings to Congress on financial issues serve as a fitting rebuke to the plague current throughout American history (continuing strongly today) of inflation and manipulation of currency. The review of these materials, therefore, serves us well in the interest of history and of current events. But in order fully to appreciate their place and meaning, we ought first to understand their total context. Pursuing that context leads us into a world that—though over two and a quarter centuries removed—strangely mirrors our own. There we find our very policies, politicians, parties and problems represented as if viewing a play scripted for political and economic tragedy and rehearsed time and again throughout the generations.

Anti Colonial Theory

  • Anti-imperialism, strictly speaking, is a term that may be applied to a movement opposed to any form of colonialism or imperialism. Generally, anti-imperialism includes opposition to wars of conquest, particularly of non-contiguous territory or people with a different language or culture. In short terms, it is also people against the spreading of a country beyond its borders. Examples of anti-imperialists include Republican senators of the Roman Republic, and members of the Anti-Imperialist League that opposed the absorption of the Philippines after the Spanish-American War of 1898.
  • Collins English Dictionary defines colonialism as “the policy of acquiring and maintaining colonies, especially for exploitation.”

Why is there such a general sense of crisis hanging over America?

The average citizen finds his orderly world eroding or even crumbling beneath his feet. His savings have recently become a very slippery kind of security. Taxes, inflation, and high interest rates are ravenously gnawing away at his dwindling standard of living. His hopes of a pleasant and safe retirement are proving illusionary. He has a feeling that he is being propagandized. programmed and over-governed to the point where his personal freedom seems to be shrinking on all fronts.
