“Unfortunately, Mullins’ source for the stockholders of the New York Fed could not be verified. He claimed his source was the Federal Reserve Bulletin, although it has never included shareholder information, nor has any other Federal Reserve periodical. It is difficult researching this particular claim because a Federal Reserve Bank is not a publicly traded corporation and is therefore not required by the Securities and Exchange Commission to publish a list of its major shareholders. The question of ownership can still be addressed, however, by examining the legal rules for acquisition of such stock. The Federal Reserve Act requires national banks and participating state banks to purchase shares of their regional Federal Reserve Bank upon joining the System, thereby becoming “member banks” (12 USCA 282). Since the eight banks Mullins named all operate within the New York Federal Reserve district, and are all nationally chartered banks, they are required to be shareholders of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. They are also probably the major shareholders as Mullins claimed.”

I’ve been hearing this stuff for years. I’ve never seen documentation that ‘proves’ it’s the Rothschilds or whomever. Maybe one of the various books on this subject proves it one way or another. It’s been years since I read Devy Kidd’s booklet on the subject. I don’t remember to what level she addresses ownership.
Salafis believe that the Qur’an, the Hadith and the consensus (ijma) of approved scholarship (ulama) along with the understanding of the Salaf us-salih as being sufficient guidance for the Muslim. As the Salafi da’wa is a methodology and not a madh’hab in fiqh (jurisprudence) as commonly misunderstood, Salafis can come from the Maliki, Shafi’i, Hanbali or the Hanafi schools of Sunni fiqh and accept teaching of all four if supported by clear and authenticated evidence from the Sunnah. In the face of clear evidence, be it from Qur’an or Hadeeth, they support scholars’ engagement in ijtihad – if they are qualified – as opposed to total blind imitation (taqlid). Their theological views are based on the Athari creed as opposed to kalam, dialectics or any form of philosophy deemed speculative.
FK – Gee, a religion, and all religions are successful cults, claiming that its religious book is ‘sufficient’ to understanding the world. Imagine that. We are still a very primitive species and we still exist in a very dark age.
So who or what are our real enemies? Are they hiding in a cave on the other side of the world? If the fundie ragheads gain a foothold here who will be to blame?
Having established a caliphate, Islamic State now believes that it is the duty of all Muslims to emigrate to it and renounce their citizenship of any other nation. It regards any form of government other than its own as anathema to Islam. According to Graeme Wood, Islamic State’s leadership believe they are on course for an apocalyptic battle with their enemies, from which they will emerge victorious. They foretell, he writes in The Atlantic, “that the armies of Rome [usually interpreted as any Christian or non-Islamic force] will mass to meet the armies of Islam in northern Syria; and that Islam’s final showdown with an anti-Messiah will occur in Jerusalem after a period of renewed Islamic conquest.” As such, Islamic State supporters actively welcome the prospect of western intervention, which they believe will hasten their own final victory.
FK – And will we kill our civilization over 3000-year-old tribal propaganda? Really?
Many mainstream Muslim organizations have gone so far as to say the Islamic State is, in fact, un-Islamic. It is, of course, reassuring to know that the vast majority of Muslims have zero interest in replacing Hollywood movies with public executions as evening entertainment. But Muslims who call the Islamic State un-Islamic are typically, as the Princeton scholar Bernard Haykel, the leading expert on the group’s theology, told me, “embarrassed and politically correct, with a cotton-candy view of their own religion” that neglects “what their religion has historically and legally required.” Many denials of the Islamic State’s religious nature, he said, are rooted in an “interfaith-Christian-nonsense tradition.”
FK – Most so-called ‘christians’ are shadows of their for bearers. That ‘old time religion’ is a mouldering in the grave. Modern churches are full of cowards and re-married divorcees, and all sorts of other un-biblical creations. Maybe they just got tired of fighting over the contradictory politically corrected mish mash they claim to follow.
War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.
I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we’ll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.
I wouldn’t go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.
FK – The Bill of Rights is what makes us exceptional. If it’s not OK for the government to treat us like jackasses then it’s not OK for the corporations to treat us like jackasses. Memorial day was created for Yankee soldiers who died while participating in the plunder and rape of the southern states.
The vast majority of gun owners felt that this registration attempt was a possible prelude to a future confiscation effort. Non-compliance is thought to be stunningly high, something in excess of the estimated 90-percent non-compliance rate for registration in neighboring Connecticut. These are truly “just paper” laws which the citizenry has brazenly ignored, and which the state law enforcement agencies in both states dare not attempt to aggressively enforce for legitimate fears that they could trigger a violent insurrection.
FK – We need to bring the troops home, activate the militia and have them hunt our domestic blood enemies in these Yankee states and in Commiefornia.
FK – The crime issue is a red herring. Always has been. Our domestic blood enemies want us disarmed so we can’t hunt them when enough finally see the necessity of doing what will be required. Simple fact.
FK – What a concept.
FK – We need to demand a full repeal of ‘all’ gun laws.
Tamika Cobb and Kendra Richard were caught on video taking merchandise from the 7-Eleven on the corner of W. Baltimore and Howard streets on April 25, the state Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services said.
FK – Apparently ‘unrest’ is a new PC word for rioting and looting.
FK – There are no white or black hats. Never has been. In a free country there’s no such thing as a group whose motives cannot be questioned. If we have that we have a serious problem. We have a serious problem.
FK – The real question is what power the House of Saud holds over the globalists. Why haven’t they been invaded and overthrown?
She also suggested that natives and federally funded tribal governments were being exploited for sinister purposes by the Obama administration and other forces. “The national multi-headed Hydra that I see assaulting America is being fomented by the present federal executive Branch,” she said, citing federal takeovers of key economic sectors, the exploitation of tribal governments to reduce state authority and jurisdiction, and the ongoing efforts to divide-and-conquer the American people along every conceivable fault line to advance a totalitarian agenda.
“Radical race-oriented voices in Hawaii, just like the ‘thugs’ in Missouri, Maryland and Florida, will find support as ‘victims’ when the mob violence begins, and Hawaiian law enforcement will find no respect or help at the federal level,” she added. “We are a deeply wounded country today, so it’s no wonder that ISIS, China, Russia and other potential adversaries are licking their chops to come in and capture the booty in our once great land of opportunity.” She also suggested pro-gambling forces hoping to cash in on tribal casinos may be at work in Hawaii, too.
FK – As if the Chinese and Russians wouldn’t take their resources. Russia once ‘owned’ Alaska.
FK – Made the mistake of voting for klinton in 92 when it said it was against NAFTA. That was the only reason. Then of course it pushed NAFTA through ‘the party of the little man’ congress and signed it and bragged about it. See the Wikipedia entry on NAFTA. That was the real beginning of my political enlightenment. Haven’t voted for a mainstream candidate for prez since. No more NWO hacks in the now red house.
Keeping the inter-generational constituents happy:
The report says that the increase of participants from 17 million in 2000 to nearly 47 million recipients in 2014 is one reason why the application process should be made easier and less costly, but others have argued that more relaxed entry requirements into the program are the very reason it has expanded so much.
“The evidence suggests that much of the increase was due not to the economy[,] but to deliberate policy choices by both federal and state governments, which loosened eligibility standards and actively sought new participants,” a report from the libertarian Cato Institute detailed. “At the same time, evidence that the expansion of SNAP has significantly reduced hunger or improved nutrition among low-income Americans is scant at best.”
FK – Of course, the commies are creating more inter-generational constituents.
According to The Hill, McConnell is in a tight spot as he tries to pursue a renewal of the Patriot Act by the June 1 deadline. He already filed legislation to try to push back the deadline by two months to buy more time.
“He’s really in a box,” Connecticut Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal said Wednesday before the House vote, according to The Hill. “With all due respect, he’s in a box that the courts have made for him, so to speak, by correctly interpreting the law,” he said, referring to a ruling by a federal court recently that the program is illegal.
In voting for the USA Freedom Act, the House will force the agency to obtain a narrower set of records from private phone companies, a move that McConnell has said would land the NSA with “an untested, untried, and more cumbersome system.”
McConnell is committed to passing a “clean” reauthorization bill that would extend part of the Patriot Act for 5 1/2 years.
FK – Mccommie needs to be in a box, with bars on the windows, along with every other bastard that voted for that evil law without even reading it. That kind of garbage must end.
