Crashed UFO In Baltic Sea

For now, it’s an unidentified submerged object. But a strange circular formation deep below the Baltic Sea has sparked great excitement among UFO believers who think it might be a crashed flying saucer.

While searching for shipwrecks in the waters between Finland and Sweden on June 19, a Swedish team of nautical salvagers say they uncovered a “very strange anomaly” — a round object about 60 feet across resting about 300 feet below sea level.

“You see a lot of weird stuff in this job, but during my 18 years as a professional I have never seen anything like this. The shape is completely round,” Peter Lindberg, leader of The Ocean Explorer team, told the local press, according to MSNBC.

The circular object — described by Gizmodo as resembling Star Wars’ Millenium Falcon — is also trailed on one side by what appears to be a lengthy patch of displaced seabed.

That has lead some UFO believer to surmise the strange circle is a wrecked UFO, which crashed onto the seafloor and left behind a path of destruction measuring some 900 feet, according to News.com.

The object could, of course, be a natural phenomena, or something manmade.

Without any assurance it was otherworldly, The Ocean Explorer team initially said it had no intention to pursue further investigation after publicizing the finding.

“It is not in our sphere of interest to go for this object since the cost for each hour out on the sea are tremendous,” wrote Lindberg, whose company has made a name for itself by searching for “fluid gold” — bottles of champagne, wine and liquor that can be retrieved from shipwrecks, with great profit.

“Since it might be nothing we can not afford spending funds just to have a look at it, even if it might be a ‘new’ Stonehenge standing on the bottom.”

But thanks to international media coverage, interest from around the world and perhaps some donations, The Ocean Explorer team appears to have had a change of heart.

“We will go out again soon to document and film the object,” reads a message on the website. “We have received many emails that people want to donate money to the project. We are very grateful for your donation.”

On the Ocean Explorer Facebook page, where team members have already started advertising “Secrets Of The Sea 2011-12” shirts decorated with a picture of the round object on the seafloor for $20, Lindberg wrote the following message:

Ok folks here are some relevant information; We will equipe the ROV with a real time 3D-sonar so we can get really nice images at close range . . . [W]e will use a multibeam sonar and an ordinary side scan sonar. We will have divers with rebreather equipment with us but they will be sent down as a last option. We have also thought about geiger-equipment. But right now there is not enough funds so we can proceed, we working on it though

Ron Paul: What we need is more WikiLeaks

Popular Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul is no stranger to breaking with his party, but in a recent television appearance the libertarian-leaning Rep. went even further than any member of Congress in defending whistleblower website WikiLeaks.

Speaking to Fox Business host Judge Napolitano on Thursday about recent revelations at the Federal Reserve, Paul’s typical candor showed through.

“What we need is more WikiLeaks about the Federal Reserve,” he said. “Can you imagine what it’d be like if we had every conversation in the last 10 years with our Federal Reserve people, the Federal Reserve chairman, with all the central bankers of the world and every agreement or quid-pro-quo they have? It would be massive. People would be so outraged.”

Paul, a longtime critic of the US Federal Reserve, is the incoming chairman of a House subcommittee on monetary policy. His most recent book, titled “End the Fed,” takes aim at central banks the world over, blaming fiat money systems and fractional reserve banking for the world’s increasingly volatile economies.

“In a free society we’re supposed to know the truth,” Paul insisted. “In a society where truth becomes treason, then we’re in big trouble. And now, people who are revealing the truth are getting into trouble for it.

Wikileaks: The World Will Be A Better Place

LONDON -WikiLeaks struggled to stay online Friday as corporations and governments moved to cut its access to the Internet, a potentially crippling blow for an organization dedicated to releasing secret information via the web.
Legal pressure increased on the site’s founder, Julian Assange, after Swedish authorities cleared an obstacle to his arrest by adding information to a European arrest warrant in response to procedural questions from British officials, who had put his possible arrest on hold for more than a day.
Assange’s lawyer said that he is in the U.K. but she hadn’t received a warrant by Friday afternoon.
Assange said that his arrest would do nothing to halt the flow of American diplomatic cables being released by his group and newspapers in several countries. Hundreds have been published in redacted form this week and Assange said that all of the cables had already been distributed in a heavily encrypted form to tens of thousands of people.
If something happened to him, he suggested, then the password needed to unencrypt the data would be released and all the secrets would go out at once.
“History will win,” Assange said in a web chat with readers of The Guardian newspaper, one of the media organizations helping to coordinate the documents’ publication. “The world will be elevated to a better place. Will we survive? That depends on you.”

Corporate America Doesn’t Care About You

It’s another David vs. Goliath showdown. In this case, though, David is concerned parents like you and me, and Goliath is corporate America and his government cronies. But just like in the original story, David is putting up a scrappy fight to help protect our loved ones.

For decades, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has been collecting complaints from us regular folks about potentially dangerous products over a wide range of categories, from tools and household electronics to children’s toys, clothing and care products.

Although CPSC’s role is all about monitoring product safety, much of the information from these complaints is not made public because of a federal law that requires a manufacturer’s approval before it can be released. This means that you might never know if a safety issue has been reported about your child’s crib or pacifier, or even your blender or lawn mower. So, without that information, how are we expected to protect our families and ourselves?

In recognition of this absurd and potentially dangerous set of rules, the CPSC has proposed the creation of a new, publicly accessible database of safety complaints, which would make it easier for the rest of us to learn about product issues.

Proposed to go live in March 2011, the database would be accessible at SaferProducts.gov, and would allow anyone with a computer to browse safety-related complaints about products. It would also give manufacturers the ability to post their side of the story or even to have a complaint removed if they can prove it’s inaccurate.

This would be a great leap forward for parents like you and me, as we could search the database before buying strollers, cribs or toys — potentially saving our infants and children from accidental injury or even death.

Sounds like a great plan to me — a total win-win situation, which no one could possibly object to. Right?

Wrong.  Continued….
