U.S. Drone Program "Should've Never Started" - Ron Paul

What goes up can and will be shot down; illegal drones in U.S. skies now being targeted by patriots - manufacturers, operators will be held personally responsible and accountable for deaths, accidents

The U.S. government is undermining Americans’ rights at home through surveillance, and its drone program “should’ve been shut down a long time ago,” former Texas Congressman Ron Paul told RT. He also criticized the prospect of another Clinton-Bush election.


Future fate of all illegal drones in U.S. skies
Speaking on RT’s ‘Watching the Hawks’ program, Paul was asked if it’s time to close down the drone program considering that two hostages were recently killed in an airstrike.

“It should’ve been shut down a long time ago – it should have never been started, as far as I’m concerned,” Paul said. “It gives us nothing but grief. They’ve been used for [the] assassination of American citizens.”

“It should be closed down as quickly as possible. If it’s ever to be used in wartime it should be very strictly controlled.”


Paul dismissed the idea that drone strikes prevent American casualties by keeping the US from sending in ground troops, arguing that usually the deployment of drones, special forces and sanctions leads to more problems and continued escalation.

Regarding the National Security Agency’s mass surveillance programs, Paul also said those who claim bulk collection helps “close the gap” between the government’s failure to stop the September 11 attacks, like Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas), are “blowing smoke.”

Paul said the sole purpose of the government and military is to protect our liberties, yet the federal government is doing the opposite. He added that interfering in other countries overseas draws the US further into conflicts to the point that it feels the need to undermine Americans’ rights.

“We lose our liberties here at home, at the same time it’s costing us a bundle, driving us into bankruptcy, and our freedoms are being undermined,” he said. “We’re told that we’re [overseas] to protect our liberties and enforce the Constitution by fighting unconstitutional wars overseas and unconstitutionally undermining our Fourth Amendment here at home.”


Future fate of all drone manufacturers, operators
“It makes no sense. I just wish the American people would wake up,” he said. On the topic of the 2016 presidential election, the former lawmaker was asked about a potential matchup between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, a race that would pit another Clinton against another Bush.


“If that comes up, the American people are gluttons and they’re going to have to suffer,” Paul said. He noted that “there’s a lot of big money” behind the fact that the Clinton and Bush families are mainstays in the political system, but said a disapproving population could change things if it wanted to.

“When the people reject, totally, confidence in the government and they know the promises aren’t going to bear out, they change the program. Some of these systems fail because they’re not workable,” he said, adding that he believes the current US system of intervention and high spending will fail.

“The American people have a responsibility,” he said, “but I hope they’re not gluttons for more of this suffering.”

Common Elderberry Boosts Immunity : Cures Eight Known Strains Of Influenza

Another natural cure for health insurance ripoffs and elitist doctors

It's miserable to get the flu, but elderberry syrup can help you beat it fast. This all-natural tonic has been proven in many studies to be excellent at both preventing and treating multiple ailments. 


Elderberries: Anti-viral
Elderberry syrup can dramatically boost your immune system, protect against illness and lessen the duration and severity of influenza. 

Elderberries have been shown to be effective against eight strains of influenza, including the type that includes H1N1. 

While H1N1 is too new to have many studies out yet, one study has already found elderberry extract inhibited H1N1 infection in lab tests.


Elderberry is also excellent for respiratory ailments such as bronchitis and much more. 

Good Health Herbs lists elderberries benefits as:

Internally, for colds, flu, cough and sore throat, fever, swelling, inflammation, respiratory problems including asthma and bronchitis, chronic sinusitis, detoxification, laxative, diaphoretic (brings on perspiration).

Indeed, the seventeenth century herbalist John Evelyn called Elderberry a remedy “against all infirmities what-so-ever.”

If you want to make your own great tasting elderberry syrup, here is an easy recipe that our family uses that is based on a recipe by famous herbalist Rosemary Gladstar. It uses just elderberries, honey and water (an alternate recipe is given for use in children under 12 months). You can purchase dried elderberries online from sources such as Mountain Rose Herbs and at some health food stores.


H1N1
You can also gather your own in the wild. Our family harvests elderberries every September. 

We dry them and keep them in mason jars to make up batches of elderberry syrup as needed all year long, and to share with friends who become ill. 

Here are instructions on how to find elderberries in the wild and here are easy instructions on how to collect and use them.




You can also purchase prepared elderberry remedies like Sambucol, which is widely available at local health food stores and drug stores like CVS, The Vitamin Shoppe and Walgreens.


Elderberry extracts are safe for children, pregnant women and those with compromised immune systems. The leaves and branches of elderberries are poisonous, but the small bits of stem that may stay on the end of the berries are considered safe. Elderberries should be cooked before they are consumed, as the raw berries can make you ill. The Pollen Libraryreports, "This genus is not typically considered to be of marked allergenic significance to most people."

This is a wonderful remedy to keep on hand all year round.

You can find more information on the health benefits and contraindications of Elderberry at Herb Wisdom and the University of Maryland Medical Center.

Jeb Bush Backs Off Support Of Iraq Invasion

Bush family retards, drunks and murderers still do not seem to get it

05/13/2015

WASHINGTON - 

Republican Jeb Bush said on Tuesday that "mistakes were made" in the Iraq war, moving to disavow a controversial statement he made in support of the 2003 invasion ordered by his brother, then-President George W. Bush.


"Duhh… like Georgie said, they… they tried to kill
my Dad!"
The former Florida governor, who is likely to run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, had told Fox News in an interview broadcast on Sunday that "I would have" authorized the invasion.

The comment fed a narrative pushed by Democrats that Jeb Bush is little different from his brother, who left office in early 2009 with his popularity weakened by the Iraq war and a faltering U.S. economy.

Jeb Bush on Tuesday went on the talk radio show conducted by conservative Sean Hannity to try to quiet the controversy.


"I don't know what that decision would have been. That's a hypothetical," Bush said when asked by Hannity whether he would have ordered an invasion of Iraq.

George W. Bush made his decision to go to war and assembled an international coalition to help the United States carry it out based on intelligence indicating Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's government possessed weapons of mass destruction.

The intelligence turned out to be wrong, and the decision to go to war remains a topic of hot debate in the United States as Iraq is in turmoil with the rise of Islamic State militants.

"Clearly, there were mistakes [in] faulty intelligence. My brother has admitted this, and we have to learn from that," Jeb Bush told Hannity.


Americans still paying the price for George W. Bush's Iraq invasion

Bush also said that he had misinterpreted the question that Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly had posed to him in the interview.
