Gov Cook The Books & 11 Shockers & Internet Cencorship!! Nov 17/11
Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports or CAFR's
Have you ever wondered why governments never have enough money? Have you ever wondered why taxes keep going up up up and services keep disappearing? Have you ever wondered how it is that there is money for projects like "bridges to nowhere" and $7,000 toilets but no money for school lunches? Well, there is a very good reason for this dichotomy, the reason is as old as Methuselah...it's called governmental fraud or to use a more colloquial phrase...cooking the books! Here is how it's done.
All mafias have to have two sets of books. One for the public wherein the numbers are cooked and one that shows the real story. Our criminal government is no exception. The “book” that the government wants you to see is “The Budget”. The Budget only talks about revenue from taxpayers and expenditures. The “book” that shows the real numbers is called the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report or CAFR for short and it includes revenue from investments and interest as well as everything in the budget. Every State, City, County and the Federal Government has one, it is put out every year and is on the internet (see below for links). It was created in 1946.
The Comprehensive Annual Financial Report is kept under wraps because the main stream media never talk about it, they only sound the alarm when government is ready to default and needs another bail-out, another credit increase, or for services to be cut and taxes to be raised. They tow the line for their masters and as it so happens are in bed with many local, state and federal government agencies becoming treasurers, government accountants and heads of treasury departments after doing their stint as editors or journalists.
The budget is the annual operating cost per year, the budget doesn't mention the total investments, income or net worth. Alex Jones said it would be like a husband making 100k per year and telling his wife that he only makes 10k per year and basing their budget on the 10k per year. The media and the politicians (both sides of the same coin) are always decrying the shortfall in the budget based on faulty books! The public doesn't have a clue because even though the main stream media get almost all the reports each year they wont report on it. All we hear is that we have to cut services, cut social security, cut medicare or raise taxes because there isn't enough money when it's all a lie.
Government shills hide the money by putting it in “investments” like bridge repairs or waste management, then that investment or project is NOT audited. It's a sophisticated shell game. And, even though the reports are put on the internet no one knows about them, nor does the media report on them. When criticized for trying to pull the wool over the public’s eyes they will always say “well they are on the internet in plain sight”. Putting the reports on the internet gives the politicians plausible deniability when accused of fraud.
As of 1999 they no longer show all investment income from all sources, and all gross amounts now (because they know that we are on to them thanks to Walter Burien and Alex Jones) they only show investment revenue necessary to meet obligations and only targeted net amounts. So as of 1999 they have started cooking these books too! The only way to find out what the discrepancies are is to go through and meticulously compare previous years CAFR's with current CAFR's.
This is money that is legitimate just think about all the money the government is getting from black ops like drug running or the selling of guns under the table or for something as banal as traffic cops. Every traffic cop hired at a starting salary of $30,000 may bring in $100,000 in revenue conservatively. Fines, fees, permits and licenses have all gone up over 600% in the past few decades...where is the money going?
According to Walter Burien the major ownership in the stocks represented by the Dow is controlled by government funds. As of the late 1990's that number was 70%. In other words city, state and federal governments own 70% of all major stocks. Moreover, these investment managers know how to make money whether the stock market increases or decreases so these governments whether city, state or federal should have more than enough money to pay their bills and continue. However, what is it we are told over and over? We are told that city, state and now the federal government are going bankrupt because they do not have enough revenue! Moreover, if they lose money on their investments they will site that as the reason for having to raise taxes but what is NEVER mentioned is the gain on investments which more than offset the losses.
Wikipedia writes; while a budget may indicate that a specific government or agency has financial trouble and debt as a result of excess spending within the select grouping of "general fund" accounts, the CAFR may indicate that overall the same government entity has many facets possessing large holdings and income considerably greater than what is shown in a budget report or the "general fund" alone.
In 1994, Orange County California government lost about $1.5 Billion on investments in the derivatives market and claimed they needed to declare bankruptcy per their general purpose budget while holding approximately 11.3 billion in profitable holdings in their investment portfolios.
The University of Kentucky's holdings of 85% of CHA Health insurance stock was documented in 2005 in the Lexington Herald Leader newspaper when CHA was sold to a rival firm as part of the UK president's effort to raise a billion dollars to fund becoming a "top 20" research university an ongoing effort.
In 2010, Oregon Rep. Bruce Hanna during general session when the floor was discussing what to do about the state's 3.5 billion dollar budget shortfall (fire employees, cut back on services, close state parks), stood up with the cover page from the state CAFR in hand and stated that in less than a few minutes he found $3.5B to satisfy the state shortfall, there being no shortfall when comparing the state CAFR and the previous "selective" presentation of the State general purpose operating budget.
I spoke with Walter Burien personally and I asked him if he knew of any government whether city, state, county or federal that ever showed a true deficit on the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. He said that in some small factions of government like rural counties they may have come short by a small amount but never in any government of decent size. He said the bigger the government the bigger the fraud. Mr Burien has suffered tremendously for blowing the whistle on this carefully constructed shearing of the public. He has had death threats, he had his children removed, he has had to defend himself from a variety of lawsuits, his dogs were executed and his business destroyed. He now lives in total isolation for the last three years.
So what is the solution here? Short of stringing up every single politician, banker and journalist (I can dream can't I?) the best thing that we can do is to shine a light into the darkness. Start by educating yourself, your family and your friends. Get copies of the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report for your area, your state and the Federal Government. Call into talk shows and radio shows and start talking about it. Walter Burien suggested passing a law that requires verbiage printed on all tax receipts stating that either local, state or federal revenue can be verified on your CAFR and then direct people to a website so that they are forced to acknowledge it's existence. I think that this is a great idea.
Finally, remember the saying of Edmund Burke “The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing”. We are way past the hour when we can sit back in our ignorance and let these criminals continue to rape our country.

11 Shocking Truths for Change Nov 15/11
We are living through a time of great awakening. The people of our world are beginning to open their eyes and realize the stunning depth of the scams and collusion taking place all around them. These scams that steal their wealth, poison them with chemicals, enslave them with financial trickery and control their minds with propaganda. These scams are the very fabric of modern government, the mainstream media, universities and so-called "science" institutions.
Here are 11 of those scams that you probably never would have believed just 2-3 years ago; but now you probably realize these are true!
Welcome to the real world, my friends. Now that we recognize the depth of the scams, let's change things for the better. (Occupy America!)
#1 - Most of the honey you buy in the grocery store contains no actual honey whatsoever
It's true, the so-called "honey" isn't even technically honey. Most of it is made of cheap "mystery" sweeteners, illegally imported from China, right under the nose of the FDA.
#2 - The fluoride that's dripped into municipal water supplies is actually a highly toxic industrial chemical byproduct
This scam is exploding in the faces of all the ignorant dentists and doctors who have been pushing this poison for years. Once again, they were wrong; the "conspiracy theorists" were right.
#3 - Flu vaccines often contain live flu viruses and actually cause the flu as a way to worsen the flu season and scare more people into buying vaccines
It's also true with MMR vaccines, which cause the measles. Flu vaccines are the greatest medical hoax that has ever been perpetrated on the world:
#4 - Ron Paul is deliberately stripped out of mainstream news reports, online polls and debate coverage in order to "game the system" against him
The power elite don't really want "fair and open" elections in America, you see. It's all about rigging the system to make sure a globalist puppet gets elected instead of a Man of the People.
#5 - The United States government openly trafficks illegal guns into Mexico as a way to cause gun violence in the USA
It all seemed so very clever until they got caught, and now it just seems flatly criminal. So why can the federal government run illegal guns and nothing happens to them, but if you or I do it, we go to prison for a long, long time?
#6 - Prestigious U.S. hospitals are widely engaged in black market organ trafficking and organ transplants
And why not? It's profitable, and they can claim they're "saving lives!" Make no mistake: the organ transplant industry is steeped in dark, psychopathic criminal activity.
#7 - The child sex slave industry is huge, highly profitable, and found everywhere across America (and the world)
You wouldn't have believed this, probably, until the whole Penn State scandal recently made headline news around the world. As everybody now knows, Penn State sports officials routinely raped young children, even pimping them out to other criminal rapists who paid big money to rape young boys. This went on for 15 years right inside a prestigious university, right here in America.
Are you shocked? You shouldn't be. Alex Jones has been sounding the alarm about this for a decade. Nobody listened to him. They couldn't believe it was real. People would rather bury their heads in the sand than face reality.
And yet, this Penn State scandal just scratches the surface. The far deeper horrifying truth of all this is that Child Protective Services routinely kidnaps young American children and sells them into sex slavery -- so-called "white slavery." That story has not yet been covered by the mainstream media.
#8 - Commercial chickens are routinely fed arsenic, and commercial cows are routinely fed chicken poop
Oh, you didn't know that? When you eat conventional beef, you're eating meat from cows who created that meat by consuming chicken poop. Yumm! Can I have some more poop on that burger, please?
#9 - "Natural" foods and cereals are routinely made with genetically modified ingredients
Oh, you thought "natural" meant better than organic? Non-GMO? Stop getting suckered by the cereal companies and dishonest food conglomerates. Know what you're really eating:
#10 - The global banking industry is a criminal racket that steals wealth from working class People and redistributes it to the global wealthy elite
You wouldn't have believed this five years ago, but now, looking at your own bank account, the job you lost, the house you can't sell and the health care you can't afford, it's all sinking in: The global financial system is an engineered con that suckers working-class people into giving up all their wealth, piece by piece, until they die bankrupt. Indentured servitude...
#11 - The U.S. government routinely conspires with pharmaceutical giants to conduct criminal, inhumane medical experiments on innocent people
Recent revelations about the U.S. government's secret medical experiments in Guatemala are just the tip of the iceberg here. Dr. Jona Salk, inventor of the polio vaccine, also ran unethical medical experiments on people. In fact, the entire history of modern medicine (pharmaceuticals, vaccines, chemotherapy and more) is something of a "house of horrors" of inhumane medical experiments on innocent victims.
What else is true?
Ever wonder what else might be true about our world that you never would have believed just a few years ago? Maybe it's time you started reading books by Jim Marrs or even David Icke.
Now is a good time to start listening to the Robert Scott Bell Show on www.NaturalNewsRadio.com where you'll also hear news from Patrick Timpone.
Perhaps it's time we all started questioning history, medicine, corporate science, banking institutions and all governments. Discard your blinders.
Maybe it's time we opened our eyes to reality and stopped lying to ourselves about the depth of corruption and evil in our world. And why would we do that? Because that's the first step to positive revolution where we work together to create a better world... a world where such criminality and suffering is ancient history.
Accept reality, in other words... and then CHANGE it for the better.

Internet Cencorship in USA
Right now, the US Congress is debating a law that would give them the power to censor the world's Internet -- creating a blacklist that could target YouTube, WikiLeaks and even Avaaz! Now if we stand with key members of the US Congress, we can defeat this attempt at global Internet censorship. Click here and help build an unprecedented global petition for a free and open Internet:
Right now, the US Congress is debating a law that would give them the power to censor the world's Internet -- creating a blacklist that could target YouTube, WikiLeaks and even groups like Avaaz!
Under the new law, the US could force Internet providers to block any website on suspicion of violating copyright or trademark legislation, or even failing to sufficiently police their users' activities. And, because so much of the Internet's hosts and hardware are located in the US, their blacklist would clamp down on the free web for all of us.
The vote could happen any day now, but we can help stop this -- champions in Congress want to preserve free speech and tell us that an international outcry would strengthen their hand. Let’s urgently raise our voices from every corner of the world and build an unprecedented global petition calling on US decision makers to reject the bill and stop Internet censorship. Click below to sign and then forward as widely as possible -- our message will be delivered directly to key members of the US Congress ahead of the crucial vote:
For years, the US government has condemned countries like China and Iran for their clampdown on Internet use. But now, the impact of America's new censorship laws could be far worse -- effectively blocking sites to every Internet user across the globe.
Last year, a similar Internet censorship bill was killed before reaching the US Senate floor, but it's now back in a different form. Copyright laws already exist and are enforced by courts. But this new law goes much further -- granting the government and big corporations enormous powers to force service providers and search engines to block websites based just on allegations of violations -- without a trial or being found guilty of any crime!
US free speech advocates have already raised the alarm, and some key Senators are trying to gather enough support to stop this dangerous bill. We have no time to lose. Let's stand with them to ensure American lawmakers preserve the right to a free and open Internet as an essential way for people around the world to exchange ideas, share communication and work collectively to build the world we want. Sign below to stop US censorship, and save the Internet as we know it:
In the past months, from the Arab Spring to the global Occupy Movement, we've seen first hand how the Internet can galvanize, unify and change the world. Now, if we stand together, we can stop this new attack on Internet freedom. We've done it before -- in Brazil and Italy, Avaaz members have won major victories in the fight for a free Internet. Let's take the fight global, and mobilize to defeat the most powerful censorship threat that the Internet has ever seen.
