Auburn Fans Celebrate Toomer’s Oaks

 

 

” Auburn fans said goodbye to the two oak trees at Toomer’s Corner with one more toilet paper celebration following the spring game on Saturday.

Fans roll the poisoned oak trees at Toomer’s Corner one final time following Auburn’s spring game on Saturday.

An A-day-record crowd of 83,401 watched the Orange team defeat the Blue squad 35-14 at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Gus Malzahn’s first spring game since he was hired to coach the Tigers. Thousands of fans then made their way over to drape toilet paper over the two frail, poison-infested oaks in a tribute that was more celebratory than somber.

Longtime Alabama fan Harvey Updyke Jr. pleaded guilty on March 22 to poisoning the Toomer trees after the 2010 Iron Bowl, when Cam Newton led Auburn to the national title — and an Iron Bowl comeback from a 24-0 deficit.

The trees will be cut down Tuesday, and officials unveiled a plan on Saturday to renovate Toomer’s Corner that is expected to be completed next year.”

Audit the Fed: House Decisively Approves Ron Paul Bill

” Wednesday, the 25th of July, 2012 will be remembered by monetary policy conservatives
from sea to shining sea for its incredible significance. While many could disagree with Ron Paul supporters, one cannot deny their
ferocious commitment to the Constitution, personal liberty, non-intrusive foreign policy, and especially their desire to liberate the US Dollar from the control of a private banking interest, otherwise known as ‘The Fed’.

   On the 25th, Ron Paul’s ‘Audit the Fed’ bill finally passed with massive approval from the US House of Representatives with 327-98. This
is no slight win by the margin; this was an incredibly decisive victory, showing the heart of many in the US government. The representatives
of the American people want to take a look inside the shadowy rooms and dust off the books of the Federal Reserve Fractional BankingSystem. Stephen Dinan of the Washington Times reports : “

  As this NY Sun editorial makes abundantly clear , the Fed doesn’t work for us , the people , it works for the government and the banks .

” We’ve often thought of that harbinger in the context of the current crisis over the fiat dollar, but it was all brought together in column by Judy Shelton in today’s Wall Street Journal. She notes that many in America “fear that our nation is going the way of Europe —becoming more socialist and redistributionist as government grows ever larger.” But, she warns, “the most disturbing trend may not be the fiscal enlargement of government through excessive spending, but rather the elevated role of monetary policy.” She’s referring to the way the Federal Reserve, as she puts it, “uses its enormous influence over banking and financial institutions to channel funds back to government instead of directing them toward productive economic activity.” “

Stacy McCain has the latest developments from ” the Kimberlin Files ” .

” Since 2010, Kimberlin has bee suing, smearing, harassing, and otherwise attempting to intimidate bloggers who write about his
criminal history. It seemed he was intent on silencing the truth and — although I had never even heard of him until May 17 — within four
days of my beginning to report about him on my personal blog, Kimberlin began targeting me
with his thug tactics.
    On Monday, May 21, I left
my Maryland home and departed to another state where, for the past week, I’ve continued a series of reports I’ve called ” The Kimberlin
Files .” These online dispatches have been filed from an undisclosed location, my whereabouts concealed in order to protect myself and others
from the menace of a dangerous man who by all rights should still be behind bars.”

Reportedly , Aaron Walker was arrested at the courthouse hearing today .

“UPDATE IV : Just spoke to a source who confirms that witnesses saw Walker led out of the courtroom in handcuffs. Ali Akbar, president of the National Bloggers Club,

Tweets:
Will know more on Aaron’s situation
at 3:30/4:30pm
.
  The National Bloggers Club has created KimberlinFiles.org to help call attention to the case and to enable “supporters to make financial donations to a relief fund
as a show of support . “
