WHAT WHITE PEOPLE ARE HIDING!!!
The time has come again to address world ignorance, the shadow government, and clandestine operations of the deceitful people who currently think they rule the planet. Caucasians are not fully or normally developed human beings but are only the inbred mutant albinos of their genetic masters—Black Africans. Do you know the real reason white people perform laboratory experiments on white lab rats is because those white lab rats share the same genetic code as they share? They share two common factors—the albino, and the inbreeding factor. Those white rats are bred for their albinism and are deliberately inbred to mimic the genealogy of so-called “Caucasians.” White people perform experiments on white rats to see how experiments potentially go over in the human Caucasoid population. If they want to know how something will impact the normal population, the benchmark used is a normally colored rat. In the human world, if they want to know how something will impact the normal human population, their benchmark is a black human being. Black humans contain the only fully developed genes and genealogy is the benchmark for normalcy. Inbreeding has caused the gene pool of white people to become severely depleted, and whites have far less genetic diversity than their black genetic masters.
White people are far more prone to various genetic defects, malfunctions and disorders. Ever notice why white people have far more tolerance for milk the most lactose tolerant? Since white people reflect sunlight with white skin, they do not synthesize vitamin D like normal people, and this automatically decreases calcium levels in the blood. To compensate, they have to have calcium depleted from their bones, leaving their bones porous and weak and leaving whites susceptible to osteoporosis. Their bodies always need calcium because it is always robbed from their bodies. Normal people, after reaching a certain age, no longer need milk and should be waned off of it. In the wild, when was the last time you saw a full grown animal still suckling its mother? Actually, black people should not drink milk. They can get all of the Vitamin D they need from sunshine. Caucasians need supplements to help them make up for the Vitamin D deficiency. This is why most people who are lactose intolerant are black people and why white people are not only the most lactose tolerant, but needy. In the supermarket, notice how many products have calcium added in them from orange juice and other fruit juices to breakfast cereal? All that extra calcium fortification is to aid whites in their inability to maintain healthy vitamin D levels in their bodies because of the genetic defect. This is the governments way of “leveling the playing field” if you will.
Why is there so much secrecy at various military bases and archaeological digs? This is really where the shadow government arrives. White people are hiding the fact that today’s technology is nothing more than recycled ancient technology from civilizations long ago. The secret aircraft they are manufacturing at area 51 out in the western United States are only reversed engineered aircraft from ancient aircraft excavated from archaeological digs. The shadow government is rediscovering and recycling this technology and taking credit for it as though they are the originators, when in fact they are not. It is all a part of the white “supremacy” proliferation at the expense of their genetic masters Black Africans. The way the system works is as follows: Various archaeologists, Egyptologists etc. are dispatched to various archaeological digs to excavate ultra classified ancient artifacts or anomalies that must remain hidden and unknown to the vast majority of the world. These artifacts and anomalies are sent to various laboratories and universities who are given government funding to “figure out how these things work and recreate or reverse engineer them” in a way that implies that so called modern white men are the originators and progenitors of this technology, and all traces of any ancient ties are clearly swept away and eradicated from the equation. The more universities contribute to this task, the more they are rewarded with bogus prestigious ranks by US News and World Report and THES the times of London. It works similarly for corporate giants like AT&T, IBM etc. MIT’s Lincoln Laboratories is a main culprit in reverse engineering these artifacts and anomalies. This is why they are so highly revered and respected. How many black archaeologists or Egyptologists do you know? Black people are diverted from certain areas of expertise or professions and for good reason. The shadow government does not want black people to go into areas of Archaeology, Egyptology, Biochemistry, etc. in large numbers because expertise in these fields will show black people just how fraudulent the world’s current paradigm really is.
The seat of a shadow government can be located London, England. Many people believe the United States of America received independence from England after signing of the Declaration of Independence. The truth of the matter is, not only was the Declaration of Independence a farce, we are still a British colony like many other parts of the world. Everything that goes on in the United States from the economy to fashion is dictated by the British. It always has been. Most people don’t realize this, but it is the truth. Warren Buffet and Bill Gates are not the richest men in the world, the Rockefellers and the Rothschild’s are. They are literally trillionaires. The Rothschild’s are worth an estimated 100 trillion dollars or more. They are the higher ups in the Illuminati who are the main ones controlling world affairs. The Boule is the people like Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and others who take the heat for the super powerful men behind the scenes. The world is not really what it seems. There is more or less a dichotomy of reality. There is the official reality that most people think they know, and then there is the truth. The shadow government works feverishly to keep that truth hidden from plain view. Remember the “Secret Covenant” that I discussed in a past essay. Certain truths just can’t get out in the open. The main ones: That white people are black people’s inbred mutant albino offspring, that modern technology was actually originated by ancient black super civilization from long ago, and that many of the things that is wrong with the world are completely white people’s fault, from out of whack weather situations to various disease outbreaks, to even this economic crisis we are going through as we approach the next decade beginning in 2010. All of these things are at the hands of the shadow government. Never trust white people. The prime directive of those mutants is to deceive the world and maintain their inferior genetic strain at all costs. That is the real reason for stem cell research and cloning. As I have pointed out, white people cannot reproduce themselves efficiently like normal black people so they need extra help like cloning, stem cell research and surrogate mothers. In many parts of the world, white people cannot carry their unborn children to full term because they are victimized by photolysis. Solar radiation depleting their foliate levels keeping cell replication difficult or impossible. So what do they do? Find black women or Indian women or other women of color to carry their children to term for them. White people are unnatural genetic defects and freaks of nature who cannot function as normal human beings. They should not even exist within the context that we understand them and they certainly should not be ruling over their black genetic parents. Once you understand these key concepts, you are well on your way to understanding what white people are hiding from you, that you should know.

I'm so sick of folks using the word racism/racist out of context.
racÂ·ismâ€‚ â€‚/ËˆreÉªsÉªzÉ™m/ Show Spelled[rey-siz-uhm:a345ec9eb2] Show IPA
1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
Since, when do blacks have the rights to rule over whites socially,politically and economically?
Just because we discuss what goes on in our community doesn't mean we our racist.
Just because we're not attracted to whites and won't fuck ya doesn't mean we're racist.
Just because we love ourselves and want to educate others on black love doesn't mean we're racist.
Whites are starting to use reverse psychology when they created racism to begin with and you have some confused, self-hating blacks that like to label other blacks as racist as well, just because another black person doesn't conform to white supremacy. White people love to play the victim role or use their "white cards", but you can't be the victim and the villain at the same time.
Racism comes with power. Prejudice and discrimination are two different terms. fat,old,handicap people get discriminated everyday,so I guess it's racism too.
racism requires institutional POWER, black people do not have the POWER to stop white people from doing anything they want, and that includes living where they want to live, working, getting an education, owning land, keeping that land, getting a fair trial or being murdered by the police.
the ONLY racism in this country is WHITE RACISM, because ONLY white people have the power and the systems and the institutions to "discriminate" against non-whites.
so, racism is ALL ABOUT RACE. There is no "white race" there is only White Power and White Racism, and "whiteness" is really an organization designed to maintain and promote the system of white supremacy AND white privilege. ~Anon~

David Rosenberg, market guru, has officially declared that the US economy is in a state of depression, and he sees the economic superpowers woes worsening.
On the heels of that bleak forecast, the statistics for existing home sales for July were released and the numbers were ugly. The weak housing market collapsed. Reflecting the worst slump in American history, existing housing sales had plummeted a stunning 27 percent and there's no sign on the horizon that sales will stabilize any time soon.
The bottom line, argues Rosenberg and others: the US economy has collapsed into another Great Depression.
Citing the period from 1929 to 1932 and the eerie similarities, Rosenberg said, "We may well be reliving history here. If you're keeping score, we have recorded four quarterly advances in real GDP, and the average is only 3 percent." The same happened during the early 1930s stock market rebound of 50 percent after the 1929 crash.
The Great Depression followed the brief economic upswing.
As long as two years ago, one of Britain's top economists predicted a decade-long depression, $45 trillion in debt defaults and unemployment in the US and UK approaching 25% or higher.
During October 2008, economist Fred Harrison told the Foreign Press Association in London,""The massive contraction in demand caused by this 'wealth effect' will condemn the western economy to a decade-long depression."
Like some economists who alerted the Clinton and Bush administrations about the approaching economic crisis, Harrison warned future Prime Minister Gordon Brown of the looming financial danger when Brown was appointed Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1997. Brown, like Presidents Clinton and Bush, ignored the warning.
"Brown blames America for the global crisis. But every country in the world permitted property speculation, which is at the heart of boom/busts. Brown now defends himself by claiming that he tried to get global agreement on a stabilization plan. But he failed to tell the other governments about the tax reforms that could have prevented the crisis," Harrison explained in his speech in London.
Two years later, more economists agree with Harrison. Such luminaries as Arthur Laffer and Paul Krugman are two. Although at the opposite ends of the political spectrum, both see dire times ahead for the United States: higher unemployment, a worsening of the credit crisis and housing slump, more loan defaults, more business failures and more foreclosures. Add to this economic witch's brew the possibility of simultaneous currency deflation and inflation and you have every ingredient necessary for another extended Great Depression.
In fact some economists have begun using the term, Great Depression II.
Harrison concurs and believes that the situation has become so serious that whole nations could fail and something unseen in the West for hundreds of years could appear again: wholesale starvation of peoples in some Western countries.
Back in 2008, Spectator Business reported that "Harrison's predictions earned him the epithet 'Prophet of Doom' until his forecasts proved correct. He is now described as 'the canary in the housing mine…(his) prediction is chilling: Nostradamus...could scarcely have been more accurate."
On the other side of the pond, in the US, sits Arthur Laffer. The author of several important books on economic theory including his latest, "Return to Prosperity: How America Can Regain Its Economic Superpower Status," Laffer was also an adviser to the Reagan Administration during the 1980s and a member of the Economic Policy Advisory Board.
His economic models have been proven to work and withstood the test of time. Now Laffer has declared that the US economy is heading for a very big fall early in 2011.
The economist, best known for his economic model called the 'Laffer Curve," came to national prominence when his model was adopted by Ronald Reagan in an effort to turn the economy around after the disastrous economic policies of Jimmy Carter.
Back in the late 1970s the media kept track of 'the misery index' an informal gauge of inflation, stagnation and taxation that put a damper on the economy for years. Laffer's recommendation—to cut federal taxes significantly and roll back the rate of government spending—was employed in 1981 after Carter's bid for a second term was roundly routed by an angry American electorate.
Laffer's 'prescription' created an economic boom that carried into the Clinton presidency. It also surprised many critics of the model when it achieved what Laffer had predicted: higher revenues to the treasury despite the deep tax rate cuts.
Now Arther Laffer has analyzed the direction of the federal government over the past two years and hears alarm bells going off. The savvy economist has studied the potential impact of the historic debt, an economy hovering just above a depression, and the building pressure to raise interest rates when inflation rises in the future, and compares the ship of state to the Titanic.
"Today's corporate profits reflect an income shift into 2010. These profits will tumble next year, preceded most likely by the stock market," writes Laffer in the Wall Street Journal article, Tax Hikes and the 2011 Economic Collapse.
Laffer calls attention to the one thing that has kept the economy partially afloat, as poor as the economy has been: the Bush tax cuts. When they expire (on January 1, 2011), "federal, state and local tax rates are scheduled to rise quite sharply." Dividend tax will skyrocket from 15 percent to a whopping 39.6 percent, the capital gains tax will increase 25% and the estate tax will jump from zero to 55 percent.
These taxes—a triple whammy to the economy—will serve to further depress business growth and hiring, depress real estate further and add an even greater burden on the ability of the consumer to spend discretionary income, which will sink like a rock. To all that must be added the re-introduction of the infamous "marriage penalty" that could lead to more home foreclosures.
If all that is not bad enough, tax rates will be raised further on income earned outside the US, payroll taxes will rise in 2013 squeezing the middle-class wage earner more, the alternative minimum tax will affect people at lower income levels and taxes are scheduled to be imposed on so-called "Cadillac health care plans."
Nobel Prize winning Paul Krugman, a liberal economist, concurs, but for different reasons. He believes the federal government has not spent enough fast enough. Much of the so-called "stimulus money" authorized by Congress is languishing, unspent. Some hundred billion went to dubious projects and grants designed to stimulate nothing.
Krugman is furious. Writing in a New York Times OpEd piece recently, he condemned the current administration's economic policies and predicted a Second Great Depression. He also raised a rather bellicose alarm against Treasury and other responsible for US monetary policy—including the Fed. Krugman is convinced that tens of millions will never find work again and the economy will worsen in 2011 and 2012.
All economic indicators echo 1929 - 1933
Finally, Robin Griffiths [http://www.financial-gurus.co m/gurus/9511/Robin-Griffiths/] devines the future economy from a technical market approach. Griffiths is a strategist at Cazenove Capital who recently shared with viewers of CNBC that "the world has entered significant financial depression."
According to Griffiths “Equities are for losers and bond markets for winners. Equities are simply for people who like losing money,” Griffiths said.
“A double-dip is inevitable and imminent, as Keynesian stimulus measures have never worked anywhere. We are in the equivalent of a Great Depression following 3 years of credit crisis,” he added.
Griffith has taken a seat at the economic banquet of scarcity, austerity and gloom. The entrees at that table offer very slim pickings indeed: charts depicting a 20-year economic downturn; zero growth; possible additional contraction; massive unemployment, and the imminent collapse of governments globally.
If all that's not enough, Griffiths points out that the United States' shrinking M3 money supply now matches the average decline seen from 1929 to 1933.
Despite the gloom and doom, it's best to remember that things could always be worse.

The US Treasury has just announced that China’s official holdings of U.S. Treasury securities declined by about $30 billion between April and May of this year, from about $900 billion to some $868 billion. According to the US authorities, this means that Chinese holdings of US government paper are now at the lowest level in the past year. A 2% to 3% decline in a month does not qualify as massive dumping, but simply means that China is in the process of diversification. It is also very likely that China has more U.S. Treasury bonds than this official count would indicate, quite possibly through proxy purchases via Hong Kong and other places.
With the sales of existing homes in the United States falling by 27% this morning, together with disastrous statistics regarding unemployment and foreclosures, it ought to be obvious that the US economy is in depression. Even experts interviewed on CNBC are beginning to wake up to this obvious fact.
World Bond Bubble
On August 24, the Treasury’s two-year note reached its highest price in recorded history, meaning that the yield was at a record low. The entire world is piling into short-term U.S. Treasury paper, and many buyers cannot get enough. This makes a mockery out of the right wing reactionary refrain that the US equals Greece and soon will be unable to borrow. If, according to the crackpot Austrian theory, markets know things that individual humans cannot know, then surely the market is signaling a great desire for T
Treasury bills and Treasury notes at the short end. The main reason for this demand is of course fear and panic – coming from the growing awareness that the world is indeed experiencing the second wave of a world economic depression of colossal proportions.
There is now a large-scale international bond bubble involving, among others, US treasuries and German Bunds. Since the flash crash of May 6, many investors have fled the stock markets entirely. It is still too soon to sound the alarm on deflation ahead, but deflation has now appeared over the horizon as a concrete possibility – partly because so many major financial players are now convinced that deflation is the wave of the future. If this were to come about, it would mean a depression looking much more like 1929-1933 than the relatively more mild situation we have experienced over the last two years. The depression may be taking a turn toward something far more excruciating for the masses of the population. One by-product of that would be vastly decreased popular gullibility for the anti-government recipes of the libertarian Austrian school, which are tailored for those who have money, and which have very little appeal to people who are unemployed, homeless, and starving.
Also on August 24, the Japanese yen hit a 15-year high compared to the dollar, and a nine-year high compared to the euro. This kind of currency championship is a Pyrrhic victory which nobody wants, since it means the Japanese exports are in the process of being strangled. This is true currency chaos and world depression at the same time, pointing once again towards the urgent need to restore the fixed rate system of Bretton Woods, which was destroyed 39 years ago this month by Nixon and Kissinger, urged on by Milton Friedman and other snake oil economists.
For the past year, the main thrust of the London and New York financial centers has been the effort to export the Depression into Europe by means of a speculative attack on the government bonds of Greece, Spain, Portugal, and some other countries, all designed to provoke a panicked flight out of the euro, which would in turn allow the Anglo-Americans to loot and asset strip the accumulated wealth of the old continent. This was not a market event, but it orchestrated strategic attack, inspired by such figures as Soros, Einhorn, and Paulson. During July and the first half of August, it became apparent that this Blitzkrieg as originally planned had failed to reach its objectives. But the Anglo-Americans, one-trick ponies as always, maybe persisting in the assault.
China Blocks US-UK Attack On Euro
The Anglo-American hedge fund attack, as we have documented here, employed credit default swaps as the primary weapon against Greek, Portuguese, and Spanish government bonds. The failure of London and New York to induce a panic flight out of the euro during the May-June timeframe was partly results of the German self-defense measures, involving bans on naked credit default swaps and bans on naked shorting of German equities. In addition to this, Chinese support for the euro has played a decisive role.
There is every indication that the Chinese made a decision not to allow the destruction of the euro during the late spring and early summer. That decision was technical, commercial, and political at the same time. The technical part was the China sought to re-balance the basket of currencies it uses to maintain the international stability of the renminbi. As the euro looms larger in Chinese trade, purchases of euros and Eurobonds are in order. It is also worth pointing out that the Chinese have not delivered on their promise to radically raise the international value of the renminbi, as hysterically demanded by Tiny Tim Geithner and others.
The commercial and political sides of Chinese support for the euro were reflected in the June visit of the Chinese vice prime minister to Greece, notably to the port of Piraeus. This Chinese envoy signed more than a dozen important economic cooperation deals, including shipping and shipbuilding, telecom, and container ports. The deputy Greek finance minister, Theodoros Pangalos, was quoted as saying: “The Chinese want a gateway into Europe. They are not like these Wall Street [blankety-blanks], pushing financial investments on paper. The Chinese deal in real things, in merchandise. And they will help the real economy in Greece.”1 The emphasis on the production of tangible physical commodities by the Chinese, in contrast to Wall Street’s reliance on a mass of toxic and kited derivatives, points to the real basis of Chinese economic ascendancy. If the Chinese are wise, they will not go overboard with short-term greed, but rather be ready for generous concessions to the Greek labor movement, so as to get the unions on their side. In any case, these euro-denominated Greek purchases are one obvious reason why Beijing is holding fewer greenbacks and more euros.
Will Hungary, Ireland, or Budget Austerity Sink The Euro?
The Anglo Americans are still beside themselves with rage and consternation over the fact that their original attack on the euro has not worked. But since about the middle of August, the euro has fallen from over $1.30 to about $1.26 or thereabouts. Part of this is due to the decline of the New York Stock market, given the long-standing dollar-Dow trade-off. Another negative factor for the euro is doubtless the cruel and stupid deflationary policies introduced by many EU governments in a craven attempt to ward off further speculative attacks. In a depression, government spending is the main thing that supports the entire economy, so cutting the government budget is a recipe for economic disaster, as some EU countries are now being reminded. Another factor is simply the month of August, when Catholic Europe, including France, Italy, Spain, and Bavaria, tends to shut down.
Where Will The Next Panic Break Out?
The world is now in a time of mixed signals and cross-currents. The forces of depression, in the form of $1.5 quadrillion of toxic and kited derivatives, are most emphatically still lurking, and since they have not been shredded, canceled, deleted, outlawed or abrogated, they will soon find a way to explode once again. Serious financial observers are now waiting to see where the next currency or banking panic will come. Over the last day or two, there have been reports of heavy selling of the Hungarian forint, which is inside the EU but not part of Euroland. Late on August 24, Standard & Poor’s announced a major downgrade of Irish debt, switching to a negative outlook. If the panic comes in Hungary or Ireland, then the euro could indeed go down. CNBC traders, in response to the question of how to make money off the crisis of the Hungarian currency, immediately replied that the way to do that was to short the stocks of Austrian banks, who hold much Hungarian debt. From here, the crisis would move on to Germany, and soon the entire continent would be back in the soup. The British pound sterling also has massive vulnerabilities to being the next monetary unit to crash.
But the most likely victim remains Wall Street itself. A glance at the stock chart of Bank of America over the past three months shows what any technical analyst would regard as a very ugly picture. There are rumblings that Citibank may be heading towards liquidity trouble in September and October. For those who like to read the tea leaves, CNBC’s Jim Cramer today responded to a question about Citigroup by emphatically declaiming “Stick with Citi,” and “Stick with Pandit.” Citigroup, he affirmed, remained his “favorite speculation.” For contrarians who have learned something over the past two years, this may already be enough to head for the hills. In any case, if the banking panic breaks out in New York, then the dollar may turn out to be the victim.
Bernanke and QE2
Today also brought the publication of the August 10 minutes of the Federal Reserve’s Open Market Committee. These minutes reveal a serious split in the management committee of the US financier oligarchy. Bernanke and his majority are afraid of deflation, and want a new round of quantitative easing – already dubbed QE2 by the Street. But there is also a significant Austro-monetarist reactionary minority who regard inflation as the greater evil, and to whom a deflationary crash would not be unwelcome, as libertarian rantings over many decades have made plain. These tensions may well be on display at the Federal Reserve’s annual conference at Jackson Hole, Wyoming at the end of this week.
Another CNBC analyst has ventured to predict a ragged decline of the Dow to about 5,000 over the months ahead. If that begins to happen, then the danger of deflation will be enhanced, and in such a scenario the dollar would actually tend to increase in value compared to other currencies. On the other hand, Helicopter Ben Bernanke’s trademark is his strategy for flooding the system with bailouts and other liquidity if deflation looms. Bernanke is the captain of that ship of fools known as the QE2. The one certainty is that there is no recovery, and that the second wave of a world economic depression dominates the world.
10 Practical Steps That You Can Take To Insulate Yourself (At Least Somewhat) From The Coming Economic Collapse
Most Americans are still operating under the delusion that this “recession” will end and that the “good times” will return soon, but a growing minority of Americans are starting to realize that things are fundamentally changing and that they better start preparing for what is ahead. These “preppers” come from all over the political spectrum and from every age group. More than at any other time in modern history, the American people lack faith in the U.S. economic system. In dozens of previous columns, I have detailed the horrific economic problems that we are now facing in excruciating detail. Many readers have started to complain that all I do is “scare” people and that I don’t provide any practical solutions. Well, not everyone can move to Montana and start a llama farm, but hopefully this article will give people some practical steps that they can take to insulate themselves (at least to an extent) from the coming economic collapse.
But before I get into what people need to do, let’s take a minute to understand just how bad things are getting out there. The economic numbers in the headlines go up and down and it can all be very confusing to most Americans.
However, there are two long-term trends that are very clear and that anyone can understand….
#1) The United States is getting poorer and is bleeding jobs every single month.
#2) The United States is getting into more debt every single month.
When you mention the trade deficit, most Americans roll their eyes and stop listening. But that is a huge mistake, because the trade deficit is absolutely central to our problems.
Every single month, Americans buy far, far more from the rest of the world than they buy from us. Every single month tens of billions of dollars more goes out of the country than comes into it.
That means that every single month the United States is getting poorer.
The excess goods and services that we buy from the rest of the world get “consumed” and the rest of the world ends up with more money than when they started.
Each year, hundreds of billions of dollars leave the United States and don’t return. The transfer of wealth that this represents is astounding.
But not only are we bleeding wealth, we are also bleeding jobs every single month.
The millions of jobs that the U.S. economy is losing to China, India and dozens of third world nations are not going to come back. Middle class Americans have been placed in direct competition for jobs with workers on the other side of the world who are more than happy to work for little more than slave labor wages. Until this changes the U.S. economy is going to continue to hemorrhage jobs.
The U.S. government has helped to mask much of this economic bleeding by unprecedented amounts of government spending and debt, but now the U.S. national debt exceeds 13 trillion dollars and is getting worse every single month. Not only that, but state and local governments all over America are getting into ridiculous amounts of debt.
So, what we have got is a country that gets poorer every single month and loses jobs to other countries every single month and that has accumulated the biggest mountain of debt in the history of the world which also gets worse every single month.
Needless to say, this cannot last indefinitely. Eventually the whole thing is just going to collapse like a house of cards.
So what can we each individually do to somewhat insulate ourselves from the economic problems that are coming?….
1 - Get Out Of Debt: The old saying, “the borrower is the servant of the lender”, is so incredibly true. The key to insulating yourself from an economic meltdown is to become as independent as possible, and as long as you are in debt, you simply are not independent. You don’t want a horde of creditors chasing after you when things really start to get bad out there
2 - Find New Sources Of Income: In 2010, there simply is not such a thing as job security. If you are dependent on a job (“just over broke”) for 100% of your income, you are in a very bad position. There are thousands of different ways to make extra money. What you don’t want to do is to have all of your eggs in one basket. One day when the economy melts down and you are out of a job are you going to be destitute or are you going to be okay?
3 – Reduce Your Expenses: Many Americans have left the rat race and have found ways to live on half or even on a quarter of what they were making previously. It is possible – if you are willing to reduce your expenses. In the future times are going to be tougher, so learn to start living with less today.
4 – Learn To Grow Your Own Food: Today the vast majority of Americans are completely dependent on being able to run down to the supermarket or to the local Wal-Mart to buy food. But what happens when the U.S. dollar declines dramatically in value and it costs ten bucks to buy a loaf of bread? If you learn to grow your own food (even if is just a small garden) you will be insulating yourself against rising food prices.
5 – Make Sure You Have A Reliable Water Supply: Water shortages are popping up all over the globe. Water is quickly becoming one of the “hottest” commodities out there. Even in the United States, water shortages have been making headline news recently. As we move into the future, it will be imperative for you and your family to have a reliable source of water. Some Americans have learned to collect rainwater and many others are using advanced technology such as atmospheric water generators to provide water for their families. But whatever you do, make sure that you are not caught without a decent source of water in the years ahead.

6 – Buy Land: This is a tough one, because prices are still quite high. However, as we have written previously, home prices are going to be declining over the coming months, and eventually there are going to be some really great deals out there. The truth is that you don’t want to wait too long either, because once Helicopter Ben Bernanke’s inflationary policies totally tank the value of the U.S. dollar, the price of everything (including land) is going to go sky high. If you are able to buy land when prices are low, that is going to insulate you a great deal from the rising housing costs that will occur when the U.S dollar does totally go into the tank.
7 – Get Off The Grid: An increasing number of Americans are going “off the grid”. Essentially what that means is that they are attempting to operate independently of the utility companies. In particular, going “off the grid” will enable you to insulate yourself from the rapidly rising energy prices that we are going to see in the future. If you are able to produce energy for your own home, you won’t be freaking out like your neighbors are when electricity prices triple someday.
8 – Store Non-Perishable Supplies: Non-perishable supplies are one investment that is sure to go up in value. Not that you would resell them. You store up non-perishable supplies because you are going to need them someday. So why not stock up on the things that you are going to need now before they double or triple in price in the future? Your money is not ever going to stretch any farther than it does right now.
9 – Develop Stronger Relationships: Americans have become very insular creatures. We act like we don’t need anyone or anything. But the truth is that as the economy melts down we are going to need each other. It is those that are developing strong relationships with family and friends right now that will be able to depend on them when times get hard.
10 – Get Educated And Stay Flexible: When times are stable, it is not that important to be informed because things pretty much stay the same. However, when things are rapidly changing it is imperative to get educated and to stay informed so that you will know what to do. The times ahead are going to require us all to be very flexible, and it is those who are willing to adapt that will do the best when things get tough.

That the number of medication-related deaths in the U.S. is estimated at over 200,000 a year, making medications the third or fourth leading cause of death in this country? (3)
That even common pain relievers called NSAIDs, examples of which include Advil, Motrin, Aleve and aspirin, account for an estimated 7,600 deaths and 76,000 hospitalizations in the U. S. every year? (4)
It sounds like the cure could be worse than the disease in far too many cases.
Thankfully, there is an option, an innovative approach to healing that seeks to restore balance and healthy function, instead of simply treating symptoms with drugs and suffering the side effects. I call it integrated medicine, and it is a powerful and effective way to address chronic illness... more on that in a moment.
Inhibiting Vital Functions
But first, let me explain in brief why the everyday medications Americans rely upon can be hazardous to your health.
The reason is simple and based upon the basic nature of modern drug therapy.
Most drugs used today are intended to act like biochemical strait jackets. They suppress cellular functions that appear to be overactive.
You can see this by looking at the names given to categories or classes of drugs. Almost all include "blocker," "inhibitor," or "anti-" in the description: beta-blockers, calcium blockers, ACE inhibitors, proton pump inhibitors, anti-histamines and anti-inflammatory drugs. These drugs are developed to treat disease by interfering with the biochemical processes involved in illness.
But they also interfere with the natural and healthy functions of the body.
It's like throwing a wrench into a sophisticated machine in an effort to fix it.
Furthermore, the biochemical processes they inhibit are rarely the cause of the illness. They are just part of the many changes in the body that accompany disease. Outside the setting of disease these biochemical processes all play important roles in normal cellular function.
It's no wonder that many of these drugs have side effects that are a direct extension of their therapeutic actions. (5) They are not restoring normal cellular function; they are merely inhibiting cellular hyperactivity.
Pitfalls of Pain Relief
NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) are an excellent example and include common over the counter drugs such as aspirin (Bayer, Bufferin and Excedrin), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin and Nuprin), and naproxen (Aleve). They relieve pain and inflammation by blocking an enzyme called cyclo-oxygenase (COX).
Although COX activity contributes to pain and inflammation, this enzyme also performs important functions such as:
•protecting the stomach from the corrosive effects of its own acid,
•regulating circulation of blood to the kidneys,
•modulating the activity of the immune system.
It naturally follows that NSAID use can have severe side effects, which are a direct result of COX enzyme inhibition. The side effects of chronic NSAID use have been well documented in the scientific literature, for example in the American Medical Association's journal Archives of Internal Medicine.
Side effects of chronic NSAID use include:
•stomach ulcers, (6)
•intestinal bleeding, (7)
•kidney failure, (8)
•high blood pressure, (9)
•aggravation of immune system disorders like asthma, (10) psoriasis, (11) and colitis. (12)
So if you take an NSAID, let's say for a headache, you could just be trading one problem for another.
The search for a safer type of NSAID led to the development of drugs called selective COX inhibitors. As their name suggests, they're selective in their effect, designed to inhibit only the so-called "bad" COX enzyme, without inhibiting the so-called "good" COX enzyme.
This approach created one of the most highly anticipated drug releases in the history of medicine: Vioxx.
Vioxx was a disaster; it increased the death rate from heart attacks and strokes and was withdrawn from the market.
What the scientists behind Vioxx failed to recognize is that all forms of the COX enzyme are important for health. (13)
So instead of giving us a safer drug therapy, it was like tossing a different type of wrench into the machine.
The idea that there are "bad" enzymes and "good" enzymes or "bad" hormones and "good" hormones is a total misrepresentation of how the body works.
But the pharmacology underlying conventional medical treatments is based upon that misrepresentation.
Working in Harmony with the Body is the Solution
Fortunately there is another way of looking at health and healthcare that addresses the underlying causes of illness: integrated medicine.
The great value of integrated medicine is that it provides alternative strategies for healing, based upon enhancing normal physiological balance instead of merely attempting to suppress the hyperactive biochemistry involved in disease.
A powerful strategy in integrated medicine is the therapeutic use of nutrition. Nutritional therapy, when properly used, can achieve results that drugs cannot, because nutrients are essential components of the cellular information network. An excellent example is omega-3 fatty acids.
Thirty years ago I pioneered the therapeutic uses of omega-3 fatty acids in my research, scholarly writing and teaching of medical faculty. Seeking to educate the wider public about the importance of omega-3's and other dietary fats I made them a cornerstone of my first two books Superimmunity for Kids and, Power Healing, Use the New Integrated Medicine to Cure Yourself.
Omega-3 fatty acids are found in fish, flax seed, walnuts, sea vegetables and leafy greens. The most potent omega-3's, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are used by the cells of your body to make powerful chemicals that help to maintain normal cell function under conditions of stress. (14) The so-called "bad" COX enzyme, in fact, converts DHA to substances called resolvins and neuroprotectins, which play a vital role in controlling inflammation (15) and helping brain cells survive injury. (16) This is one reason the inhibition of any of the COX enzymes can be bad for your health.
A Natural Approach to Reducing Inflammation
Knowledge of the benefits of omega-3 fats provides an alternative strategy for controlling inflammation that is both natural and potent. The basic idea is to increase your body's levels of DHA, the omega-3 fatty acid your body uses to make these beneficial chemicals.
Remarkable results in reducing inflammation can be accomplished by dietary changes and nutritional supplementation. Increase consumption of foods that contain omega-3 fats (mentioned above) and decrease consumption of foods that interfere with the anti-inflammatory effects of omega-3 fats, such meat, and oils, spreads and dressings made from corn, sunflower, soybean, safflower or cottonseed oil, substituting olive oil and flax oil instead. This simple approach had allowed people in research studies with severe rheumatoid arthritis to decrease their use of anti-inflammatory drugs. (17,18) For more information about fighting inflammation with nutrition, and free recipes, visit my website fatresistancediet.com
A vast amount of scientific research has been published in prestigious medical journals on the therapeutic use of nutrition. Now it is time to put all of that essential knowledge to work.
Making nutrition a cornerstone of everyone's healthcare has been my longstanding goal and is the first step in real healthcare reform. Moving from a system based on treating symptoms to a system for achieving optimal health will enable healthcare to achieve its true potential.
The solution is integrated medicine--the future of healthcare, today.
Now, I'd like to hear from you:
Have you experienced medication side effects?
What was done about them?
How does your doctor feel about nutritional supplements, either as alternatives to drugs or as a way to decrease drug side effects?

This is more proof on how they stick together no matter how wrong they are. I bet if he was in a suburban neighborhood around other white children they would of called the police on him and he would of got convicted of being a sex offender. A pig gave me a ticket for uirinating outside and when I went to court they told me not to do that again or i'll be register as a sex offender.the lil white girl wit her innocent white boy story and 3 LARGE (blk) men jumped out for no reason and beat him up
the white lady that recorded this she never once mentioned the fact that he was naked and drunk, neither did the bouncer that worked at the club that the white man came to naked and tried to get in or they didn't call the police for that matter. another trick of the white man and to report this sh— is stupid, even the police did not want the video tape. I guess it's ok if you're white to walk around in the nude and to hell with public indecency.
Three weeks ago, the 24-year-old man was struggling to complete an associate's degree at a college in Huntsville, Ala., while living with his mother, three sisters and a niece.
Now, he's an Internet superstar with Facebook fans by thousands, YouTube views in the millions and enough money of his own to move his family into a new house.
All because of a televised rant that attracted a rabid following.
On the local news in late July, Dodson unleashed an animated diatribe the likes of which even the Internet had never seen, denouncing an intruder who allegedly attempted to rape his 22-year-old sister, Kelly, in her bed one night.
"Obviously, we have a rapist in Lincoln Park," the 24-year-old called out to the camera. "He's climbing in your windows, he's snatching your people up, trying to rape them; so y'all need to hide your kids, hide your wife and hide your husband, because they're raping everybody out here."
It's no shock factor that the MTV show Jersey Shore is the number 1 rated show on telvision in America in this day of age, because people are getting famous for almost anything now days accept for having real talent! This Antoine dodson craze is nothing but modern exploitation of blacks living in poverty and a modern day minstrel show. The media loves to captivate and glorify stupidity, especially when it's a black men acting feminine or blacks in general perpetuating stereotypes.

New Haven, Mich. (WXYZ) - A neighborhood fight in the Amhurst subdivision in the village of New Haven on Saturday night left several young African American teens injured, beaten they say by a group of white grown ups.
It all started they say when some black teenage girls splashed some white girls at the neighborhood pool by accident. The Police chief says later on a group of about 15 teens went to the home of a white family. Everyone got into the tussle and the teens say they were hit with fists and bottles.
One of the teen girls, Kiersten Morris said, “Everybody was fighting and grown men were hitting me, like 30 year old men. They grabbed me and threw me to the ground and kicked me and punched me.
Tomorrow the chief has called a meeting with everyone involved to try to sort out what exactly sparked the trouble and settle it. The prosecutor will be the one to decide on possible charges. The chief says he doesn't think the was racially motivated.
1. Rising unemployment and poverty: Unemployment numbers, food stamps, and home foreclosures continue to reach new record highs. The ugly reality of those numbers was recently on display when 30,000 people showed up to apply for public housing in East Point, GA for 455 available vouchers. Fights broke out, people were fainting from the heat while in line, and riot police showed up to handle the angry poor.
2. Economic dependence: The United States finished 2009 with a debt-to-GDP ratio of 85%, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The current trend projects the United States to finish 2010 at 94% and 2011 at 98%. The 90% level has become the IMF’s make-or-break point for countries hoping to grow their way out of debt. If the government debt load climbs above 90% of GDP, economic growth slows so much that growth is no longer a viable solution for reducing that debt, and the IMF insists on austerity measures. Surpassing this debt threshold has also caused China’s lead credit rating agency to cut America’s credit rating.
3. Declining civil rights: Everyday freedoms are often a casualty of a society in collapse. As the anger of the populace mounts in response to declining economic conditions and political corruption, the government counters by increasing draconian measures that restrict the political rights and civil liberties of its citizens.
America is becoming a country like China, which has one of the lowest scores according to Freedom House. In America, private discussions and movements are monitored, free speech is corralled, the freedom to assemble for protest is by government decree, and independent thought that questions the political system is increasingly looked upon with suspicion. A final indicator is when the government insists upon secrecy for its own actions, while new laws and systems are created to put the individual under nearly constant surveillance.
4. Increasing political corruption: When political corruption becomes the accepted norm, as opposed to the exception, then there’s a good bet your country resembles the Third World. Congress and all major institutions face a growing crisis in confidence, where a record-low 11% of the population believe Congress is doing a good job. It now seems obvious to all observers that big corporations directly control the agenda in Washington — much like typically corrupt Third World countries.
5. Military patrolling the streets: The rise of a militarized police state is a hallmark of most Third World countries, particularly in times of rapid economic collapse. America’s declaration of the War on Terror has created a constant threat to National Security that has allowed for the military to be deployed on American soil. Building upon the War on Drugs, this has created a fusion between the military and local police, where military-grade weapons and tactics are being used against American citizens in a cascade of violent confrontations over non-violent offenses. Military checkpoints are moving farther inland, away from meaningful border control functions, and a full-blown military presence in American cities has been planned by the U.S. Army War College.
6. Failing infrastructure: As 46 of 50 states are on the verge of bankruptcy, cities are going dark, asphalt roads are returning to the stone age, and nationwide budget cuts are leaving students without teachers, supplies, or a full-time education. These are common features one will see as they travel through the poorest of Third World countries.
7. Disappearing middle class: During the last presidential debate season, they argued that a family income of $250K was solidly middle-class. Well, Census data shows less than 15% of families make over $100K, and only 1.5% of families make over $250K. The income gap between the rich and poor has increased at a staggering pace, while many more middle-class folks join the ranks of the poor every day. Cavernous income gaps may be what Third-World nations are best known for.
8. Devalued currency: The value of the Federal Reserve Note (U.S. dollar) has declined 96% since the inception of the Federal Reserve in 1913. The value of the dollar is based on its supply in circulation and, to a lesser extent, the demand for those dollars. For the last three years, the money supply has spiked literally off the charts. It can be argued that the dollar has become America’s top export as the world’s reserve currency, and if the volatile dollar is scrapped, which the U.N. and IMF now suggest, then demand will plummet, killing the currency.
Fresh food that lasts from eFoods Direct (Ad)
9. Controlling the media: A government-influenced media that censors information is a key component of Third World countries. In some countries it is openly owned by the State. In America, privately-owned major media is not as balanced or as diverse as it seems; the concentration of ownership has led to censorship when national and corporate interests have sometimes overlapped. The persecution of high-profile investigative journalists such as WikiLeaks is set amid a backdrop of the proposed Internet censorship of bloggers who wish to remain anonymous. The end of net neutrality creates a pay-to-play system that can lead to further corporate and government control of information and opinion. Cybersecurity initiatives are the final nail in the coffin, as the entire free flow of information can be vetted in a China-style system of “identity management.” On the street, the police state and media control have converged in the recent rise of arrests for those who videotape the police. This is a huge blow to First Amendment rights and the role of photojournalists who wish to document public police behavior.
10. Capital Controls: Many nations have enforced capital controls as their economies collapse. It most recently happened in Argentina and Venezuela as they sought to keep the remaining wealth within their borders. The SEC already has adopted policies to allow money market funds to suspend withdrawals during a financial crisis, while the recent HIRE bill (HR 2487) puts restrictions on Americans moving capital to foreign countries. Some economists suggest that the national debt has gotten so high that the government must now force investment of private capital into U.S. Treasury debt.
Key economic indicators point to a situation potentially worse than the Great Depression. The land of opportunity for so many is devolving into a system of government corruption, corporate looting, and military rule that threatens to sink the American Dream. The capital flight from America has left a dwindling middle class holding an empty bag. This style of underinvestment in the foundation of society is similar to what already has led to the exodus from the rural Midwest. Now, there are ominous signs of a silent exodus of young, intelligent professionals seeking opportunities to realize their dreams outside of America; they are becoming known as Generation Xpat. Lastly, many skilled immigrants have returned to their home countries to seek a better quality of life, which might be the scariest indicator of all.

Victim says racial taunts, death threats continued after arrest
A black teenager has what appears to be the imprint of a boot on his bruised face after he and four of his friends and relatives say they were beaten by a “mob” of up to three dozen white people in New Haven over the weekend.
The incident was sparked by a dispute among several girls using a pool in the Amherst subdivision near 27 Mile Road and Gratiot on Saturday, according to Dvonta Lebby, one of the victims.
“I got jumped by 20 or 30 people, grown men, who started hitting me, and kept attacking us and didn’t stop until the police came,” Lebby said, adding one of the men stomped on his face so hard, the boot imprint remains.
Lebby, 18, a student at New Haven High School, said several of the white man repeatedly called him “nigger” and used other racial taunts against others being attacked by the group.
Witnesses said one of the alleged attackers was arrested by New Haven police but officers took no action against others accused in the incident.
The police station Sunday was closed for the weekend. The Macomb County Sheriff’s Office, which sent deputies to assist New Haven officers during the Saturday evening skirmish, referred reporters to New Haven Police Chief Michael Henry, who could not be reached Sunday.
Several of the victims had bruises and scratches, but none required hospitalization.
According to Lebby and his family and friends, some of their 15-year-old female relatives were using the pool Saturday afternoon. The girls accidentally splashed another group of females in the pool and words were exchanged.
Later Saturday, while Lebby and his friends were at home on Bradford, a group of people from down the street who were attending a birthday party at a white woman’s home gathered in the alley behind the house.
The woman who was hosting the party declined to comment Sunday afternoon.
Lebby was one of five males and two females who say they were attacked by white men who held them down and repeatedly struck them. Police were called to restore order.
“It was like a mob of 20 to 30 grown men in their 30s or 40s looking to fight these kids,” said Robbie Lebby, Dvonta’s mother. “I’m hollering at them to stop it — we’re talking grown men punching and kicking these kids.”
Lebby said his friend, 17-year-old Cory Jamison, “saved my life” by pulling some of the attackers off of him but then Jamison was hit in retaliation.
But in the hours after the confrontation, Lebby said the alleged attackers continued to make threats by driving by his home and yelling out slurs and also vowing on a Facebook page to kill the teens.
Jamison’s mother, Nicole, who saw much of the incident, said she is afraid for the safety of the black children in the neighborhood. She feels her own life is in danger as well.
“Justice needs to be served,” she said. “We need some protection out here

What would you do if you spent 27 years in jail for a rape you didn’t commit: If you had to fend off grown men, fight every day, eat crap around the clock or miss your own mother’s funeral? These are the questions running through the mind of Michael A. Greene, a man who was just exonerated and released after serving his entire adult life in prison.
Mr. Green, 45, was set free by a state judge two weeks ago after DNA tests on the rape victim’s clothing proved that he could not have been responsible for the crime. His exoneration was the work of a new unit in the Harris County district attorney’s office dedicated to reviewing claims of innocence.
Since he’s been released, he has had to decide whether to take a $2.2 million compensation payment from the State of Texas or file a civil lawsuit in the hope of exposing the truth about the investigation that led to his incarceration. To receive the compensation, he must waive the right to sue.
“What I really need to do is to make them pay for what they done to me,” he says. “Two-point-two million dollars is nothing when it comes to 27 years of my life, which I spent with mental torture and physical abuse.”
The story of Mr. Green’s nightmarish imprisonment — and how a prosecutor, Alicia O’Neill, eventually unearthed biological evidence that led to the real culprits — throws a harsh spotlight on an uncomfortable reality in American justice: the identification of a suspect in a lineup or in an array of photos is not always reliable.
He was walking home on April 18, 1983, the night a white woman was abducted and raped in his neighborhood by four black men in a stolen Camaro. He was one of several young men stopped by the police, but the victim could not identify him.
A week later, however, he was arrested after stealing a car and smashing it up. Detectives showed the victim Mr. Green’s mug shot, along with several other photos, and she said he might be one of her attackers. Later the same day, she picked him out of a lineup of five men.
He heard her scream from behind the mirrored glass when it was his turn to step forward in the lineup. He began cursing and yelling at the police.
“I got so mad, because I recognized it was a setup,” he said. “Then one of the police said: ‘I don’t know what you are mad about. I didn’t rape her. You did.’ ”
Mr. Green spit in the officer’s face, the first of many defiant acts.
A few days later, he turned down an offer from a prosecutor to plead guilty and serve five years for the rape, Mr. Green said. He recalls the trial as a surreal experience. It was the victim’s word against his. On the stand, she pointed him out again. He told the jury that he was innocent, but they did not believe him.
At 18 years old, he was sentenced to 75 years.
Over the years, Mr. Greene endured many attempts on his life, including one by a white supremacist gang leader seeking vengeance on behalf of the victim. Fortunately, his was one of many cases reviewed by the Innocence Project. They helped him get the DNA tests that ultimately led to his freedom.
They have since offered him a job as a paralegal with the Innocence Project of Texas. He says he plans to dedicate his time to “getting more innocent dudes out.”
D*mn. Brothas take note, spitting in the face of a cop can get you 27 years, innocent or not. So what would y’all take the deal for $2.2 milli or go hard for more bread?
Shiit like this.... I really have no words to say, because it really pisses me off.
The Israeli man believed to be responsible for stabbing 18 people in three states (15 of whom were black) has been officially charged with attempted murder in at least one case and is expected to be hit with more charges very soon.
Israeli national Elias Abuelazam was detained by officers in Atlanta, Georgia, on Wednesday before he could board a flight to Tel Aviv.
The 33-year-old faces a charge of attempted murder for a July 27 knife attack in Flint, Michigan, that put the victim in hospital.
But Abuelazam is wanted in connection with a spate of violent attacks across three US states – including five stabbing murders.
Authorities have said more charges are expected in Michigan, along with Ohio and Virginia.
Following his arrest the US resident appeared in an Atlanta court, where he said he wanted to stay in Georgia to face the charges against him.
But Judge Richard Hicks said he would have to return to Michigan if he wanted to fight them.
Abuelazam then agreed not to delay the process.
Meanwhile, there were reports that police in Israel suspected Abuelazam of a stabbing attack in Israel earlier this year – but he was never charged.
He is thought to have knifed an acquaintance during an argument, but the case was dropped when the victim refused to help investigators.
Abuelazam’s relatives in Israel expressed shock that he was suspected of such violence.
His 49-year-old cousin, also named Elias Abuelazam, said: “I wouldn’t believe it even if I saw it with my own eyes.”
He described his relative as recently appeared to be unhappy and unsure what to do with his life: “He seemed confused,” Mr Abuelazam added.
The suspect’s mother was said to be devastated by news of his arrest, as she had been waiting to pick him up from the airport.
“She couldn’t stand up … She was hysterical,” Abuelazam’s cousin said.
In a brief radio interview in Israel, she described her son as a “religious, God-fearing man” and refused to believe he was a killer.
Back in the US, authorities were trying to play down earlier suggestions the attacks Abuelazam’s was suspected of were racial motivated.
WTF do they mean authorities are trying to play down the attacks being racially motivated??? A white man stabs up 15 black men, but now it’s not about race.
This m’fer needs to be hit with FEDERAL HATE CRIME charges on top of all the other MURDER and ATTEMPTED MURDER charges that need to be filed NOW. WTF is taking so long?
SMH… Not racially motivated our a$$!
Sheeeeeeet, then again this maniac probably just knew if he was killing black folks, law enforcement wouldn’t give a fizzuck.
On a sidenote, we do feel bad for this guys cousin — it’s gotta SUCK to be stuck with the same name as him after this. Air travel is gonna be no fun for him anymore

SMH… The crazed lunatic white serial killer who has been stabbing up black men in Michigan is believed to have struck in Virginia as well, seriously injuring at least three more victims there.
A white man who stabbed or attacked three dark-skinned men in Leesburg this month is probably the “Flint serial killer,” thought to have killed five men and wounded 10 — almost all of them black — in Michigan, police said Monday
The unprovoked Virginia assaults began Aug. 3, when a teenager out for a nighttime jog suddenly felt a sharp pain, then turned to see a man who had plunged a knife in his back. Two days later and a short distance away, police think, the same assailant stabbed a 67-year-old man who was sitting on the stoop outside his apartment. Then, on Friday, the attacker asked a man for help fixing a dark-green sport-utility vehicle, then struck the good Samaritan in the head with a hammer.
Leesburg Police Chief Joseph R. Price said he is confident the man wanted in Flint is the same person attacking men in Loudoun County. There are striking similarities in the methods of the attacks, but the strongest evidence is the specific description of the suspect’s green SUV, which is nearly identical in both locations.
Price said he thinks the man may be prowling for more victims and warned residents to be on guard. He recommended that people use the buddy system while walking or jogging. Police in Michigan have been reluctant to say the attacker is motivated by race, but Price was not.
“He’s attacking based simply on the color of their skin,” Price said. “I would consider this man to be very desperate and very dangerous.”
Meanwhile, indications emerged Monday that the assailant may have struck over the weekend in Toledo. The last attack in Leesburg was on Friday.
Police in the Ohio city said Monday that the stabbing of a black Toledo man Saturday is likely linked to similar crimes in Flint and Leesburg, ToledoBlade.com reported.
The Toledo newspaper website said a 59-year-old Toldeo man was in critical condition Monday after being stabbed Saturday night by a man who asked him for directions. The website said the assailant was reportedly driving a dark green, older model Chevrolet S-10 Blazer with a tan lower section.
According to the website, police described the assailant as a white or Middle Eastern man, 5 feet 8 and 160 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
Police in Leesburg said they have reached out to the local NAACP. “It does appear that the target of his rage, the targets of his attacks, are African American,” Price said.
Two of the Leesburg victims are black. The 19-year-old who was struck with the hammer is Hispanic, but police think the attacker mistook him for African American because of his dark complexion. In the Leesburg attacks, the man has not used racial slurs or indicated any motive to his victims. In two instances, he did not speak.
In Michigan, police think a single assailant has stabbed 15 men since May, killing five. Thirteen of the victims are black, and two are white. All of the those killed were black. Michigan State Police 1st Lt. Patrick McGreevy said investigators there are aggressively examining the Leesburg cases but are not certain the same man is responsible.
“I can tell you there are similarities, and it may appear to be the same person,” McGreevy said. “But to say they are conclusively linked — we are not prepared to state that.”
Police say the link to Michigan is not based on forensic evidence, such as DNA, and is therefore not conclusive. But Leesburg detectives noticed similarities to the Flint attacks and flagged investigators there. The attacker’s description — a white man with a muscular build who often wears a baseball cap — is similar. Police think he often (but not always) chooses targets who are vulnerable: people who are older or of small stature. The victims are alone when they are approached. In each state, the attacker has used a similar ruse, asking for help with his car.
But the suspect’s vehicle makes Leesburg police confident it’s the same man. In both locations, the attacker was seen in a dark-green Chevrolet Blazer with tan paneling around the bottom. In Leesburg, the vehicle was described as having two grapefruit-size dents in the hood. An image of the car was captured on surveillance video after the most recent attack.
“These people are assaulted, and he disappears into the night,” McGreevy said. “We’re not going to stop until we get this guy.”
Leesburg police have stepped up patrols, and the FBI is helping with the investigation. Police in Leesburg and Flint — separated by 555 miles, or about 9 1/2 hours by car — announced the possible connection Monday and urged anyone who may have seen the SUV or have other information to call them.
“Clearly people have seen this person, have seen this vehicle,” Price said. “We have no information to say if he’s still here, or if he has fled.”
Ronald Turco, an Oregon psychiatrist who has studied serial killers and worked with the FBI, said if it is the same assailant, he thinks the crimes are probably racially motivated, partly because the attacker has targeted similar victims and Leesburg is not predominantly African American. The town’s population is about 10 percent black.
“I’d say it’s someone who has a deep resentment against black people,” Turco said.
In Leesburg, the assaults began about 9:30 p.m. Aug. 3. A 15-year-old boy was jogging near a busy stretch of strip malls when he felt a pain in his back. Then he saw blood. The assailant never spoke, but the teen saw him run and flee in a car he described as a green minivan with a white stripe. Police think it could have been the SUV because the teenager’s fleeting glance was in the dark after he had just been stabbed.
Two days later, a 67-year-old Leesburg man was sitting outside his Edwards Ferry Road apartment just after 6 a.m. when a man wearing a baseball cap hopped out of his vehicle and walked past him into the apartment building. The man soon came back out and, without a word, stabbed the Leesburg man in the back.
The most recent Leesburg attack happened Friday night when a 19-year-old Hispanic man walking through a parking lot to meet friends was approached by a man who said he need help fixing his car. When the two got to the man’s car, the assailant pulled out a tool they think was a hammer and aimed at the teenager’s head. The teenager avoided the worst of the blow, and then ran for safety.
Police said the 15-year-old and the 67-year-old remain hospitalized. Both are expected to recover, though the older man had to have a kidney removed as a result of his wounds. The 19-year-old is recovering, they said.
Why has there not been more national coverage about this psycho? Had he been targeting white people this deranged lunatic would have been buried UNDER the jail already
