It should be no secret by now that a cadre of central banksters, politicians and extremely wealthy corporatists have been working to implement a global order which would benefit their interests. The mere knowledge of this causes different reactions in different people. Some will enter a state of denial and claim no such things exist. Others may admit to the existence of such conspiracies, but would claim there was nothing that can be done to stop them. Still others would not only admit to the conspiratorial nature of those at the top, they would explore methods to thwart such plans and prevent humankind from re-entering a feudal serf system. They would try to convince the deniers to join them in their efforts. To these people I say use the gift of imagination that nature has given to the human race. Read more
Acting once again without Congress, President Obama on Monday was directing the Food and Drug Administration to take steps to reduce drug shortages that administration officials say have placed patients at risk and led to price gouging.
The president signed an executive order – his fifth in a week — instructing the FDA to take action absent congressional approval.
Last year, the FDA reported 178 drug shortages — mainly cancer drugs, anesthetics, electrolytes and emergency room drugs — and the agency says it continues to see an increase in shortages this year.
The White House also announced Obama’s support for House and Senate legislation that would require drug makers to notify the FDA six months ahead of a potential shortage. Under current regulations, drug manufactures are only required to notify the FDA if medically necessary drugs are being discontinued. Notification of shortages is strictly voluntary.
In remarks before he signed the order, Obama said drug shortages have nearly tripled over the past five years while Congress has foundered.
“Even though the FDA has successfully prevented an actual crisis, this is one of those slow-rolling problems that could end up resulting in disaster for patients and health care facilities all across the country,” he said. “Congress has been trying since February to do something about this. It has not yet been able to get it done. And it is the belief of this administration … that we can’t wait for action on the Hill.”
The executive action is part of an overarching push by the White House to portray Obama, who is facing re-election, as an effective counterpoint to congressional Republicans blocking his jobs legislation. Last week, he issued an executive order to help homeowners refinance at lower mortgage rates and to allow college graduates to simplify and lower their student loan payments.
On Friday he directed government agencies to shorten the time it takes for federal research to turn into commercial products in the marketplace.
Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson responded to the series of executive actions by accusing the president of sidestepping the political process and “consent of the governed.”
“They overstep the president’s constitutional boundaries. Obama can rhetorically dress this up however he likes, but his actions are not predicated on the consent of the governed, they are fueled by his desire to maintain and expand power. This is not the rule of law, but the rule of man,” ALG President Bill Wilson said in a statement.
The FDA says major causes of drug shortages are quality or manufacturing problems, or delays in receiving components from suppliers. Drug makers also discontinue certain drugs in favor of newer medications that are more profitable. The FDA does not have authority to force drug makers to continue production of a drug.
Also attending were a Boston hospital pharmacy manager who has regularly encountered drug shortages, and a 49-year-old San Francisco cancer patient who told an FDA workshop last month how he grappled with a shortage in his chemotherapy drug.
First of all, THANKS TO ALL who have been visiting and sharing this website these last few years! Kristin and I pretty much do this as a labor of LOVE.
For Freedom, for the sake of truth, and for our own peace of mind!
When we started it, I was doing a syndicated radio show, and this site was meant to compliment that. Now we are working hard so that this site can be the first place you go for news and info. We want Deadlinelinelive.info to stand on its own!
For instance: I add more to a standard news story than most else anywhere I go myself. We do not want to ever become “repeaters” or “mockingbirds”.
We add links and Related info to decode the disinfo spread from the MSM, and publish detailed reports on major news events. The body of any post should get you the FULL story you may not be getting elsewhere! We will expand on this as we move forward! (also – our search engine here works great! Type in anything you want to get info on, and chances are we have it here!)
One way I can expand this, is by writing a Daily Column. This will be useful to both producers (as talking points) , and consumers of information. This will “officially” begin on Nov 15th 2011, and will run Monday – Friday. The name of it will be “DAILY BLOOD”. (If it bleeds it doesn’t necessarily Lead ha ha)
We will be looking for other sites to carry the column, and for sponsors to support it. As usual our rates will beat all others!
I hope to be doing an original podcast very soon as well. This will be a shorter version of the old radio show. Mostly commercial free, and free for all to use and share. We already have several interviews lined up for this. I think it will be the best medium for my voice. I know our original fans will LOVE it!
Finally – we have enabled the site so that you can all comment on any story you see here WITHOUT HAVING TO SIGN UP FOR ANYTHING. I know that I do not like to comment on sites if I have to register. NOW you will not have to here. I greatly value your opinions, even if I do not agree with them.
However, we will delete SPAM, and any comment that defames this website or its publisher. As Deadlinelive.info is private property, we do not feel that we should be required to promote rumors and slander against us. (If you have an allegation, please send it to me via email and, as always, I will directly answer the charges as honestly as I can.)

The United States said on Monday it had stopped funding UNESCO, the U.N. cultural agency, following its vote to grant the Palestinians full membership.
U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters the United States had no choice but to halt funding because of U.S. laws passed in the 1990s, saying Washington would not make a planned $60 million transfer that was due in November.
The Swiss embassy in Tehran, which hosts the US interests section in the Islamic republic, passed a letter from the Iranian government to US officials on Friday outlining Iran’s formal complaint over accusations that military factions inside the regime were directly linked to the alleged plot.
“In a recent letter to the US government, Iran has insisted that American authorities must publicly apologise to the Iranian government and its citizens for the false accusations they publicised against Tehran in violation of international norms and regulations,” Iran’s state-run Press TV reported.
US officials claimed to have uncovered an Iranian plot to assassinate Adel al-Jubeir in a sting operation involving the FBI and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
The US said Iran was attempting to hire a member of a Mexican drug cartel to carry out the killing but failed because the gang member was actually a US informant.
The main suspects involved in the alleged plot were identified as an American-Iranian, Manssor Arabsiar, 56, who was arrested at New York’s JFK airport in late September, and Gholam Shakuri, an Iranian who remains at large in Iran, according to the US.
The US version of events has been met with scepticism both from sympathisers of the Iranian regime and its opponents.
Despite this, the US continues to back its claims and has lobbied Europe for tougher sanctions against Iran in response to the alleged plot.
David Cohen, the US Treasury undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, was in London last week seeking support from his British counterparts. “Iran needs to be held accountable for this plot,” he said.
Iran has tried to distance itself from the affair by pointing the finger at an Iranian dissident group, the People’s Mujahideen of Iran (MEK) and accusing the US of fabricating the allegation in an attempt to damage Iran’s international reputation.
An Iranian diplomat who spoke to the Guardian on condition of anonymity said the US has resorted to its “entrapment technique” in order to smear Iran in the eyes of the international community.
“Americans have not presented any compelling evidence whatsoever to Iran to prove the plot was hatched by the Islamic Republic. Neither have they provided consular access to Mr Arbabsiar,” said the diplomat.
Arbabsiar pleaded not guilty last week to charges that he was involved in an assassination plot.
The Iranian diplomat claimed entrapment techniques have been used previously by the US in cases against individuals accused of attempting to smuggle or export military components to Iran.
In one recent case, in October 2006, the former Iranian ambassador to Jordan, Nosratollah Tajik, was arrested in Britain for allegedly procuring night-vision goggles for Iran. He is currently under house arrest in Britain awaiting extradition to the US.
“This plot, which was discovered this time again by an ‘undercover American agent’, is yet another [entrapment] scenario painted by the US government to impede growing Iranian progress and make trouble for the country,” added the diplomat.
In an attempt to reduce tensions with Saudi Arabia, Iran’s foreign minister Ali Akbar Salehi travelled to Riyadh last week to attend the funeral of Crown Prince Sultan bin Andul-Aziz.
Nato today announced it was ending its bombing campaign which helped Libyan rebels overthrow Muammar Gaddafi’s regime.
Officials said all operations for the air and sea campaign will conclude at midnight on Monday, as the strikes were described as ‘one of the most successful’ operations in the history of the 62-year-old alliance.
Nato stopped its bombing missions soon after Gaddafi’s death earlier this month, but has maintained regular air patrols.
Change of regime? A trademark Al Qaeda flag was seen flying over Benghazi’s courthouse last week

Officials say Nato air forces carried out 9,600 strike sorties in the past seven months, destroying about 5,900 military targets.
Nato’s decision was announced however, as fears grew over the direction of the new leadership regime in Libya.
The flag of Al Qaeda has been spotted flying over the courthouse in Benghazi, while rebels in Libya are said to have imposed Sharia law since seizing power.
NATO’S LIBYA CAMPAIGN (Timeline)
Mar 17: U.N Security Council passes a resolution to impose a no-fly zone in Libyan airspace. Mar 19: French and Italian aircraft enter Libyan airspace to begin reconnaissance and surveillance. British and U.S. ships and submarines fire Tomahawk cruise missiles at Libyan air and ground defences. Naval blockade also enforced. May 11: Nato aircraft fires four rockets at Gaddafi’s compound in Tripoli, killing two people. May 12: 52 NATO strikes are carried out against loyalist targets across the country. May 26: In the strongest attack of the operation so far, Nato planes bomb 20 targets in Tripoli under 30 minutes. June 13: Nato carries out 62 airstrikes against targets in Tripoli and four other cities. June 20: Nato is accused of killing 19 civilians in Sorman, west Tripoli, following another attack July 16: Another Nato strike kills 10 rebels and wounds 172 during an advance on Brega. Aug 9: Nato bombs a warship in Tripoli harbour. Aug 20: Nato-supported rebels in Tripoli launch an uprising in the city, as Nato launch bombing raids over government targets. Oct 20: Rebel forces take Sirte, with Gaddafi captured and eventually killed as Nato planes attack his convoy. Oct 23: Gaddafi’s family are forced to flee as rebels claim his compound in Bab al-Azizia. Oct 31: Nato ends operations in Libya
Nato stuck to its decision to end the operation despite calls from Libya’s National Transitional Council for it to stay engaged longer.
Nato says it does not expect to play a major post-war role, although it could assist the transition to democracy by helping with security sector reform.
Nato Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen will mark the end of the mission by visiting Libya today, where he will meet Libya’s NTC and members of civil society, the alliance said.
Allies of Nato have been keen to see a quick conclusion to a costly effort that has involved more than 26,000 air sorties and round-the-clock naval patrols at a time when budgets are under severe strain due to the global economic crisis.
The U.N. Security Council authorized the mission in March to protect civilians caught up in the civil war.
Nato staff temporarily seconded to the headquarters in Naples for the Libyan operation are being reassigned to their regular duties, officials said.
The NTC officially announced Libya’s liberation on October 23, days after the capture and death of Gaddafi. Nato commanders have said they believe the interim administration is able to take care of the country’s security.
Last week, however, Al Qaeda’s black flag, complete with Arabic script declaring ‘there is no God but Allah’ and full moon underneath, was seen fluttering above the Benghazi courthouse building, according to Vice.com.
The black flag is said to be flying over the building alongside the Libyan national flag.
Vice.com reported that Islamists in Benghazi have been seen driving SUVs along the city’s streets and waving the Al Qaeda flag at night while shouting, ‘Islamiya, Islamiya! No East, nor West’.
The Al-Qaeda flag was seen above Benghazi’s courthouse just days after Libyan rebels imposed Sharia law on parts of the country (file picture)
Success?: Nato has destroyed around 5,900 military targets since it began operations in Libya seven months ago
The revelation in Benghazi came just days after it emerged that rebels in Libya have imposed Sharia law in the country since seizing power.
The country’s new leader, Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, said Islamic Sharia law will be the ‘basic source’ of legislation in free Libya.
The sudden lurch by a country seen as very moderate towards Islamic extremism will alarm many in the West who supported the ousting of Colonel Gaddafi.
Bill Clinton (Rockefeller) was no stranger to serious allegations, Pre “Selection” back in 1991 – 92. It didn’t sink his campaign, in fact, thanks to the fawning media I myself was suckered into voting for him… So, is Chairman Cain just a Republican version of Cousins Barry and Willie?
Being a “conservative” should normally translate to traditional morals, and that family values should mean something to voters… But hearing El Lushbo Limbaugh cover for Cain makes me think that this too shall pass. Expect Cain’s unsolicited press agent Neal Boortz to take the cover to a whole new level (or jump like a Rat from the sinking ship)! – Just because there is smoke billowing out of the building doesn’t mean there is a raging fire?
Cain has zero experience governing. Like Obama. He has zero credibility on Foreign policy. Like Obama and Bush. He seems confused about constitutional issues, economic issues (his alleged trademark) and brings nothing to the table (other than stale Pizza) as a whole.
The left wing media wants no part in pitting him against Obama (they have already pre selected Huntsman or Romney, either of whom will get creamed in the general election), and the right wing media has realized that Cain is this year’s Huckabee, (fellow glib talk show hosts, that can stand out in debates, and give good interviews.) … So, there is your basic agenda for both the the wings of the vulture. Same, Same, Opposames all around.
In case you missed it somehow, here is the story (via Politico.com):
During Herman Cain’s tenure as the head of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, at least two female employees complained to colleagues and senior association officials about inappropriate behavior by Cain, ultimately leaving their jobs at the trade group, multiple sources confirm to POLITICO.
The women complained of sexually suggestive behavior by Cain that made them angry and uncomfortable, the sources said, and they signed agreements with the restaurant group that gave them financial payouts to leave the association. The agreements also included language that bars the women from talking about their departures.
(Like Michael Jackson, they settled out of court. Of course this didn’t help Michael clear HIS name did it?) Both women received separation packages that were in the five-figure range.
The sources — including the recollections of close associates and other documentation — describe episodes that left the women upset and offended. These incidents include conversations allegedly filled with innuendo or personal questions of a sexually suggestive nature, taking place at hotels during conferences, at other officially sanctioned restaurant association events and at the association’s offices. There were also descriptions of physical gestures that were not overtly sexual but that made women who experienced or witnessed them uncomfortable and that they regarded as improper in a professional relationship.
BTW: Herman Cain DENIES knowing anything about a settlement in these cases. If you believe that, you’re judgement is severely biased. He is clearly lying, and like the Tiger Woods case; we fully expect more women to come forward now that the dam has broken!
Mr Cain should be held accountable for both his character as a potential US President, a pundit in the media, a successful (Pro Wall St) businessman, and as an African American.
In regards to the latter… Cain owes it to his race to break stereotypes, IE: Abuse and objectification of woman, white women, and overall street hustler memes.
All of this need to be taken very seriously for no other reason that we cannot afford to have yet another Blackmail-able President (no pun intended)…And I for one have no interest in selecting darker version of Silvio Berlusconi !
I for one do not want to have to explain to my child why the President has been doing weird things with cigars, just because its all over the nightly news! I for one would want the US President, whomever is “selected”… To be a decent example for us all (Sans Skeletons). Both here in the uSA, or around the world. In other words, we should all ask ourselves: Can the uSA withstand any more embarrassment at the executive level?
Of course, if you want a man who is Spotless in his personal life and character; you do not have to look any further than Dr Ron Paul. Here is a man that is committed to family, loyalty, and the Constitution. Though Mitt will make this claim, I still have my doubts. As for the other GOP candidates:
Sanatorum – History has proven that anyone that is this anti gay is usually in the closet himself. Since he isn’t a front runner we just don’t know YET what “bones” will come crawling out of said closet. We could really do without another one of “These” Headlines!
If the high heels fit...
Perry – (Or as he is referred to in TX “Gay Perry)“. There are more than rumors regarding his nasty behavior as the Gov. Many have emerged to tell of uncomfortable and sexually suggestive advancements (if not full on trysts) by Rick. You better believe that the DNC has what they need to nail him on it when the time comes.
Bachmann: Who adopts all those kids without at least some suspicion of ulterior motives. Michelle’s hubby has also been under suspicion accused of being closeted. (not that there’s anything wrong with that… Other than the lies and the hypocrisy ah hum..)
To quote President Thomas Jefferson:“Sometimes it is said that a man cannot be trusted with the Government of himself. Can he then be trusted with the Government of Others?”
Why do I feel like Bill Murray in Ground Hog day? Every morning I wake up to the same freaky nightmare.
And… in reference to race (all things being equal) How is it that the Progressive media is not being called out as ‘Racist’ by merely telling the truth about Herman Cain? The shoe is on the proverbial “other foot” now right? From 07 – 2011 – When we attempted to set the record straight on Obama (and history has proven that we were right about everything)… We were smeared as Racists, “Tea-baggers”, extremists, and potential terrorists. What gives?
Answer: Massive hypocrisy, and a vicious double standard. By “both” parties. One covering for Cain, one eviscerating him when we were all supposed to be hands off with Afro American Obama.
In other words… Business as usual.
Editor Note: Due to the Severity of these “allegations” we will not have a chance to cover the OTHER serious Chairman Cain Scandal:
The US-China Economic and Security Review Commission has just finished a very disturbing report that lends credence to those US intelligence officers who’ve been arguing that a “cyber state of war” exists between America and China.
The report is scheduled to be presented to the House Intelligence Committee on November 16.
Specifically, the commission found strong evidence that on four separate occasions during a period from 2007 through 2008 the Chinese military may have purposefully interfered with United States government satellites. The electronic incursion was so serious that forensic computer analysis revealed that at least twice hackers—located in mainland China, specifically within Beijing—broke into satellites’ on board computers and were in a position to upload commands.
No commands, however, were initiated.
Hackers targeted weaknesses
According to information gathered by some of America’s most secret intelligence and security agencies—like the National Security Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency, and the United States Cyber Command—the Chinese hackers gained access to the satellites by probing for unprotected areas within the extensive communications network.
Overseen by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the attacked satellites’ security was breached when the electronic assault successfully exploited a weakness discovered in an unprotected port of the commercially run Svalbard Satellite Station (SvalSat) computers.
The Spitsbergen, Norway based SvalSat contracts with the space agency.
By hacking into the basic programming and information systems of SvalSat, the hackers were able to open a direct electronic dialog with the satellites.
The commission also notes in its explosive report that the Internet is heavily relied upon for basic information management such as everyday file transfers and ongoing access to critical data.
Damning evidence revealed in report
According to Business Week’s sources, the hackers interfered with two satellite communications systems four times.
“A Landsat-7 earth observation satellite system experienced 12 or more minutes of interference in October 2007 and July 2008, according to the report. Hackers interfered with a Terra EOS AM-1 earth observation satellite twice, for two minutes in June 2008 and nine minutes in October that year, the draft says, citing a closed-door U.S. Air Force briefing.” [Business Week]
The publication also reported that the draft states the Chinese attack
