President Obama on winning the Nobel Peace Price *
In reacting to the news this morning that he had won the Nobel Peace Prize, the President struck a note of humility and recognized that the award was a nod towards building a world in the future that gives life to the promise of our founding documents.

Architects of Control: Program One explores humankind’s future and the posthuman world.
The real war is the war on consciousness. It’s very important to always remember that mind control is ubiquitous. It’s almost a question of who is not mind controlled, as opposed to who is mind controlled. It’s just a difference in degree. The whole question of what is consciousness and how it can be manipulated is one of the most crucial questions of our time.
Produced by Michael Tsarion and Blue Fire Film, Architects of Control: Program One, explores humankind’s future and the posthuman world. Will the “perfect” human be a dumbed down, regimented inhabitant of a cyber purgatory created by unseen elites? Will the children of tomorrow be smiling depressives of a technocratic dystopia?
Bill Clinton, Monica Lewinsky, 1998
The Clinton–Lewinsky scandal was an American political sex scandal that involved 49-year-old President Bill Clinton and 22-year-old White House intern Monica Lewinsky. The sexual relationship took place between 1995 and 1997 and came to light in 1998. Clinton ended a televised speech in late January 1998 with the statement that he “did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky”. Further investigation led to charges of perjury and to the impeachment of President Clinton in 1998 by the U.S. House of Representatives. He was subsequently acquitted on all impeachment charges of perjury and obstruction of justice in a 21-day Senate trial. Clinton was held in civil contempt of court by Judge Susan Webber Wright for giving misleading testimony in the Paula Jones case regarding Lewinsky and was also fined $90,000 by Wright. His license to practice law was suspended in Arkansas for five years; shortly thereafter, he was disbarred from presenting cases in front of the United States Supreme Court.
