Police and prosecutors were apparently convicting people of violent crimes based almost exclusively on the “testimony” of a police dog whose handler claimed has extraordinary powers. Judges and juries apparently bought this crap for years. It finally came to an end when Judge Gilbert Goshorn ordered the dog to perform a basic tracking test after Preston claimed the dog had alerted to a suspect’s scent at a crime scene six months after the murder. The dog failed.

When checking the BAR ACT which was placed into every state around 1938, we find that the Attorneys, Lawyers, Esquires, Counselors, etc could only represent CREATED FICTIONS and CORPORATIONS. Now we understand why the passage of more than 60,000,000 Codes, Rules, Regulations, and Statutes had to be placed into the books.
All Attorneys, Lawyers, Esquires, Counselors, etc were required in 1938 to join the private fraternity called the BAR (British Accredited Regency or British Accredited Registry) for the privilege of practicing in the courts and to be given a License to Practice by the CREATED CORPORATIONS/ FICTIONS retaining them. They are given a Certificate by the State and a BAR CARD from their PRIVATE FRATERNITY.
Placing this all together the trick was now to establish each citizen of the 48 states united for America, that they had declared WAR upon as a CREATED FICTION.

[so much for salvage law] Florida deep-sea explorers who raised an estimated $500 million treasure from the 200-year-old wreck of a Spanish galleon should give all the loot back to Spain, a federal magistrate judge said. But the two-year tug-of-war over the 17 tons of silver coins and other artifacts from what is believed to be the Nuestra Senora de las Mercedes y las Animas is likely far from over.

Obama saw to it that 'Dr.' Tiller's main political supporter, Governor Kathleen Sebelius. was duly rewarded with control over Health and Human Services! Obama knew what she was, and showed who he is, with his appointment of her. The money-trail and power-trail documented in pictures. This is who Obama really is.

Democrats in Congress have agreed to provide a $100 billion credit line to the International Monetary Fund, tagging it onto the war supplemental intended for operations in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq. The measure would also increase the U.S. member contribution to the IMF by $8 billion and authorize the United States to back the IMF’s plan to sell 400 tons (12.97 million ounces) of gold, according to lawmakers’ aides quoted in a Reuters report. This would fulfil Obama’s pledge to the G20 in April, to contribute toward a $500 billion boost for the IMF, which it says will go toward “helping poorer nations” during the economic downturn. However, what the The Treasury Department is really proposing is an international version of the Wall Street bailout; a $100 billion bailout for the IMF, which amounts to a bailout for European banks facing big losses in Central and Eastern Europe. If the bill pasess, we will see $100 billion in U.S. tax dollars simply handed over to foreig
