Setting the Stage for War With Pakistan

Attempts to paint Pakistan as a dangerous enemy of the West and a prime candidate for military intervention has been made once again by those in the Western media. ABC News, in an article titled, “‘Double dealing’: How Pakistan hid Osama Bin Laden from the U.S. and fueled the war in Afghanistan,” claims that: 

What if the United States has been waging the wrong war against the wrong enemy for the last 13 years in Afghanistan? 

Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist Carlotta Gall, who spent more than a decade covering Afghanistan since 2001, concludes just that in her new book, “The Wrong Enemy: America in Afghanistan, 2001-2014.” 

Gall told “On the Radar” that Pakistan – not Afghanistan – has been the United States’ real enemy.
 

And while Gall’s “book” might be easily dismissed as irrelevant warmongering, it echoes a narrative that was crafted by some of the most notorious policy makers in the US and promoted widely in 2011 across the Western media. This included the BBC’s documentary, “Secret Pakistan,” from which it appears Gall is deriving her premise.  

Unraveling the Propaganda

The documentary “Secret Pakistan” can be summed up with two very telling quotes. The first is from Sherard Cowper-Coles, a British diplomat who served as the Foreign Secretary’s Special Representative to Afghanistan and Pakistan from 2009-2010, before that as ambassador to Israel and Saudi Arabia, and now the international business development director of British defense contractor BAE Systems. He claims during the BBC documentary that (44:00):

“…the real military threat is the Taliban – a serious insurgency that’s got nothing to do with Bin Laden. Bin Laden, in operational terms, is utterly spectacularly irrelevant.” 

Quite clearly this contradicts the “war on terror” narrative peddled to Western audiences for over a decade and instead suggests that current US, British and NATO operation in Afghanistan has more to do with Western interests in the region than fighting the alleged perpetrators of the September 11, 2001 attack on Washington and New York City.


The next important quote comes toward the end of the documentary where former CIA officer and current fellow at the corporate-funded think-tank, Brookings Institution, Bruce Riedel (57:35) claims:  

“…there is probably no worst nightmare for America, for Europe, for the world in the 21st century than a Pakistan that is out of control, under the influence of extremist Islamist forces armed with nuclear weapons.” 

This comment, however, is not as straight forward or as truthful as Cowper-Coles’. However, if one realizes that this destabilization Riedel is hinting at is actually the work of the US and NATO done as a pretext to intervene more directly in Pakistan, then it becomes truly telling – and we see the BBC documentary, along with Gall’s recent book, as yet more examples of a corporate-media conjured casus belli.

War With Pakistan

4-23-2014 11-12-31 AM

Afghanistan was never the final destination for the many empires in human history that found themselves mired there. The United States and its axis partners are no different. Just as it was a strategic springboard for the Greeks, British, and Russians to project their power beyond, the US sees Afghanistan in a similar light, with neighboring Iran, Pakistan, and China in particular mind.   

The most overt example comes in the form of nearly a decade of deadly US drone attacks carried out in Pakistani territory. These attacks have led to over 3,000 killed, a quarter of which have been civilians, and constitutes an act of war no other nation on Earth would tolerate. While the US claims these operations are “anti-terror” in nature, they appear to be instead a component among a much greater campaign to undermine and destabilize Pakistan politically.  

Other components include the direct US support of separatists in Pakistan’s Baluchistan province. Baluchi terrorists straddle the Iranian-Pakistani border and have long been considered by the West as armed proxies of great utility. 

In a 2006 report by the corporate-financier funded think tank Carnegie Endowment for International Peace titled, “Pakistan: The Resurgence of Baluch Nationalism,” violence starting as early as 2004-2005 is described. According to the report, 20% of Pakistan’s mineral and energy resources reside in the sparsely populated province. On page 4 of the report, the prospect of using the Baluchi rebels against both Islamabad and Tehran is proposed. 

In Seymour Hersh’s 2008 article, “Preparing the Battlefield,” US support of Baluchi groups operating against Tehran is reported as already ongoing. As already mentioned, in Brookings Institution’s “Which Path to Persia?” the subject of arming and sending Baluchi insurgents against Tehran is also discussed in great depth.

The 2006 Carnegie Endowment for International Peace report makes special note of the fact that above all, the Baluchistan province serves as a transit zone for a potential Iranian-India-Turkmenistan natural gas pipeline as well as a port, Gwadar, that serves as a logistical hub for Afghanistan, Central Asia’s landlocked nations as well as a port for the Chinese.

The report notes that the port was primarily constructed with Chinese capital and labor with the intention of it serving as a Chinese naval station “to protect Beijing’s oil supply from the Middle East and to counter the US presence in Central Asia.” This point in particular, regarding China, was described in extricating detail in the 2006 Strategic Studies Institute’s report “String of Pearls: Meeting the Challenge of China’s Rising Power across the Asian Littoral.” Throughout the report means to co-opt and contain China’s influence throughout the region are discussed.

More recently, longtime proponent of a Baluchi insurgency in Pakistan, Selig Harrison of the corporate-funded Center for International Policy, has published two pieces regarding the “liberation” of Baluchistan itself.

Harrison’s February 2011 piece, “Free Baluchistan,” calls to “aid the 6 million Baluch insurgents fighting for independence from Pakistan in the face of growing ISI repression.” He continues by explaining the various merits of such meddling by stating: 

“Pakistan has given China a base at Gwadar in the heart of Baluch territory. So an independent Baluchistan would serve U.S. strategic interests in addition to the immediate goal of countering Islamist forces.”

Harrison would follow up his frank call to carve up Pakistan by addressing the issue of Chinese-Pakistani relations in a March 2011 piece titled, “The Chinese Cozy Up to the Pakistanis.” He begins by stating, 

“China’s expanding reach is a natural and acceptable accompaniment of its growing power—but only up to a point. ” 

He then reiterates his call for extraterritorial meddling in Pakistan by saying:

“to counter what China is doing in Pakistan, the United States should play hardball by supporting the movement for an independent Baluchistan along the Arabian Sea and working with Baluch insurgents to oust the Chinese from their budding naval base at Gwadar. Beijing wants its inroads into Gilgit and Baltistan to be the first step on its way to an Arabian Sea outlet at Gwadar.”

Clearly, US geopolitical policy makers have put much time and effort into the destabilization of Pakistan, using NATO’s presence in neighboring Afghanistan as a means of executing it. With China’s containment becoming an increasing obsession among US policy makers, understanding how Pakistan’s destabilization plays a role in such containment is essential in assessing how far the US is willing to go in South Asia. With NATO troops slated to begin permanently pulling out of Afghanistan, Gall’s attempt to dust off a narrative that will give those NATO troops a new mandate to linger on in the region may be a tentative first step in attempting to sell a confrontation with Pakistan to Western audiences.

There is also the possibility that Gall is simply using recycled news  from 2011 onward to sell her book – capitalizing on a geopolitical campaign that has long since unraveled for a West increasingly showing signs of irreversible and accelerating decline. However, it is essential to understand where Gall’s narrative is being drawn from, the deception it constitutes, and the purpose for that deception within the context of the West’s plans against both Pakistan and on a larger scale, for the encirclement and containment of China. Understanding such deceptions inoculates the Western public against another costly and protracted conflict that will benefit neither themselves nor the Pakistani people.

The Bundy Paradigm Will You Be a Rebel Revolutionary or a Slave?

April 22nd, 2014 by

http://us4.campaign-archive1.com/?u=f6eb78f457b7b82887b643445&id=ad7d086dca&e=84f74f6a6a


By John W. Whitehead

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”—John F. Kennedy

Those tempted to write off the standoff at the Bundy Ranch as little more than a show of force by militia-minded citizens would do well to reconsider their easy dismissal of this brewing rebellion. This goes far beyond concerns about grazing rights or the tension between the state and the federal government.

Few conflicts are ever black and white, and the Bundy situation, with its abundance of gray areas, is no exception. Yet the question is not whether Cliven Bundy and his supporters are domestic terrorists, as Harry Reid claims, or patriots, or something in between. Nor is it a question of whether the Nevada rancher is illegally grazing his cattle on federal land or whether that land should rightfully belong to the government. Nor is it even a question of who’s winning the showdown— the government with its arsenal of SWAT teams, firepower and assault vehicles, or Bundy’s militia supporters with their assortment of weapons—because if such altercations end in bloodshed, everyone loses.

What we’re really faced with, and what we’ll see more of before long, is a growing dissatisfaction with the government and its heavy-handed tactics by people who are tired of being used and abused and are ready to say “enough is enough.” And it won’t matter what the issue is—whether it’s a rancher standing his ground over grazing rights, a minister jailed for holding a Bible study in his own home, or a community outraged over police shootings of unarmed citizens—these are the building blocks of a political powder keg. Now all that remains is a spark, and it need not be a very big one, to set the whole powder keg aflame.

As I show in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, there’s a subtext to this incident that must not be ignored, and it is simply this: America is a pressure cooker with no steam valve, and things are about to blow. This is what happens when a parasitical government muzzles the citizenry, fences them in, herds them, brands them, whips them into submission, forces them to ante up the sweat of their brows while giving them little in return, and then provides them with little to no outlet for voicing their discontent.

The government has been anticipating and preparing for such an uprising for years. For example, in 2008, a U.S. Army War College report warned that the military must be prepared for a “violent, strategic dislocation inside the United States,” which could be provoked by “unforeseen economic collapse,” “purposeful domestic resistance,” “pervasive public health emergencies” or “loss of functioning political and legal order”—all related to dissent and protests over America’s economic and political disarray. Consequently, predicted the report, the “widespread civil violence would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security.”

One year later, in 2009, the Department of Homeland Security under President Obama issued its infamous reports on Rightwing and Leftwing “Extremism.” According to these reports, an extremist is defined as anyone who subscribes to a particular political viewpoint. Rightwing extremists, for example, are broadly defined in the report as individuals and groups “that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely.”

Despite “no specific information that domestic rightwing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence,” the DHS listed a number of scenarios that could arise as a result of so-called rightwing extremists playing on the public’s fears and discontent over various issues, including the economic downturn, real estate foreclosures and unemployment.

Equally disconcerting, the reports use the words “terrorist” and “extremist” interchangeably. In other words, voicing what the government would consider to be extremist viewpoints is tantamount to being a terrorist. Under such a definition, I could very well be considered a terrorist. So too could John Lennon, Martin Luther King Jr., Roger Baldwin (founder of the ACLU), Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson and Samuel Adams—all of these men protested and passionately spoke out against government practices with which they disagreed and would be prime targets under this document.

The document also took pains to describe the political views of those who would qualify as being a rightwing extremist. For example, you are labeled a rightwing extremist if you voice concerns about a myriad of issues including: policy changes under President Obama; the economic downturn and home foreclosures; the loss of U.S. jobs in manufacturing and construction sectors; and social issues such as abortion, interracial crimes and immigration. DHS also issued a red-flag warning against anyone who promotes “conspiracy theories involving declarations of martial law, impending civil strife or racial conflict, suspension of the U.S. Constitution, and the creation of citizen detention camps.”

Fast forward five years, with all that has transpired, from the Occupy Protests and the targeting of military veterans to domestic surveillance, especially of activist-oriented groups and now, most recently, the Bundy Ranch showdown, and it would seem clear that the government has not veered one iota from its original playbook. Indeed, the government’s full-blown campaign of surveillance of Americans’ internet activity, phone calls, etc., makes complete sense in hindsight.

All that we have been subjected to in recent years—living under the shadow of NSA spying; motorists strip searched and anally probed on the side of the road; innocent Americans spied upon while going about their daily business in schools and stores; homeowners having their doors kicked in by militarized SWAT teams serving routine warrants—illustrates how the government deals with people it views as potential “extremists”: with heavy-handed tactics designed to intimidate the populace into submission and discourage anyone from stepping out of line or challenging the status quo.

It’s not just the Cliven Bundys of the world who are being dealt with in this manner. Don Miller, a 91-year-old antiques collector, recently had his Indiana home raided by the FBI, ostensibly because it might be in the nation’s best interest if the rare and valuable antiques and artifacts Miller had collected over the course of 80 years were cared for by the government. Such tactics carried out by anyone other than the government would be considered grand larceny, and yet the government gets a free pass.

In the same way, the government insists it can carry out all manner of surveillance on us—listen in on our phone calls, read our emails and text messages, track our movements, photograph our license plates, even enter our biometric information into DNA databases—but those who dare to return the favor, even a little, by filming potential police misconduct, get roughed up by the police, arrested, charged with violating various and sundry crimes.

When law enforcement officials—not just the police, but every agent of the government entrusted with enforcing laws, from the president on down—are allowed to discard the law when convenient, and the only ones having to obey the law are the citizenry and not the enforcers, then the law becomes only a tool to punish us, rather than binding and controlling the government, as it was intended.

This phenomenon is what philosopher Abraham Kaplan referred to as the law of the instrument, which essentially says that to a hammer, everything looks like a nail. In the scenario that has been playing out in recent years, we the citizenry have become the nails to be hammered by the government’s henchmen, a.k.a. its guns for hire, a.k.a. its standing army, a.k.a. the nation’s law enforcement agencies.

Indeed, there can no longer be any doubt that militarized police officers, the end product of the government—federal, local and state—and law enforcement agencies having merged, have become a “standing” or permanent army, composed of full-time professional soldiers who do not disband. Yet these permanent armies are exactly what those who drafted the U.S. Constitution feared as tools used by despotic governments to wage war against its citizens.

That is exactly what we are witnessing today: a war against the American citizenry. Is it any wonder then that Americans are starting to resist?

More and more, Americans are tired, frustrated, anxious, and worried about the state of their country. They are afraid of an increasingly violent and oppressive federal government, and they are worried about the economic insecurity which still grips the nation. And they’re growing increasingly sick of being treated like suspects and criminals. As former law professor John Baker, who has studied the growing problem of overcriminalization, noted, “There is no one in the United States over the age of 18 who cannot be indicted for some federal crime. That is not an exaggeration.”

To make matters worse, a recent scientific study by Princeton researchers confirms that the United States of America is not the democracy that is purports to be, but rather an oligarchy, in which “economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy.” As PolicyMic explains, “An oligarchy is a system where power is effectively wielded by a small number of individuals defined by their status called oligarchs. Members of the oligarchy are the rich, the well connected and the politically powerful, as well as particularly well placed individuals in institutions like banking and finance or the military… In other words, their statistics say your opinion literally does not matter.

So if average Americans, having largely lost all of the conventional markers of influencing government, whether through elections, petition, or protest, have no way to impact their government, no way to be heard, no assurance that their concerns are truly being represented and their government is one “by the people, of the people, and for the people,” as opposed to being engineered expressly for the benefit of the wealthy elite, then where does that leave them?

To some, the choice is clear. As psychologist Erich Fromm recognized in his insightful book, On Disobedience: “If a man can only obey and not disobey, he is a slave; if he can only disobey and not obey, he is a rebel (not a revolutionary). He acts out of anger, disappointment, resentment, yet not in the name of a conviction or a principle.”

Unfortunately, the intrepid, revolutionary American spirit that stood up to the British, blazed paths to the western territories, and prevailed despite a civil war, multiple world wars, and various economic depressions has taken quite a beating in recent years. Nevertheless, the time is coming when each American will have to decide: will you be a slave, rebel or revolutionary?

When the SHTF in America, there will be wailing and gashing of teeth because the spirit of freedom has been lost and obedience has been accepted as the right thing to do. So, my fellow do gooders, what will you do when real men come knocking and asking for provisions to continue the resistance, run for the phone and turn them in, or give them what you can and bless them for their sacrifice? Believe me; you don’t want to hear what I think most American’s will do, or what will happen to them when they do. Remember this! If you call for help instead of giving it, the animals they send are just as likely going to take you out in the process. I wish I could watch! The best scenario will leave your house in ashes or well ventilated.

VIVA LA REVOLUTION!

 


Best Description Of Barack Obuma Ever Written

April 21st, 2014 by

Received by email

The first paragraph of Mr. Wheelers statement is perfect.

4-16-2014 1-00-56 PM

Jack Wheeler is a brilliant man who was the author of Reagan's strategy to break the back of the Soviet Union with the star wars race and expose their inner weakness. For years he wrote a weekly intelligence update that was extremely interesting and well structured and informative. He consulted with several mega corporations on global trends and the future, etc. He is in semi-retirement now. He is a true patriot with a no-nonsense approach to everything. He is also a somewhat well-known mountain climber and adventurer.

The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.

He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya . He is a polished turd in the salad bowl. (Olddog)

Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively. What he isn't, not a genetic drop of, is 'African-American,' the descendant of enslaved Africans brought to America chained in slave ships.

He hasn't a single ancestor who was a slave. Instead, his Arab ancestors were slave owners. Slave-trading was the main Arab business in East Africa for centuries until the British ended it. Let that sink in: Obama is not the descendant of slaves, he is the descendant of slave owners. Thus he makes the perfect Liberal Messiah.

It's something Hillary doesn't understand – how some complete neophyte came out of the blue and stole the Dem nomination from her. Obamamania is beyond politics and reason. It is a true religious cult, whose adherents reject Christianity yet still believe in Original Sin, transferring it from the evil of being human to the evil of being white.

Thus Obama has become the white liberals' Christ, offering absolution from the Sin of Being White. There is no reason or logic behind it, no faults or flaws of his can diminish it, no arguments Hillary could make of any kind can be effective against it. The absurdity of Hypocrisy Clothed In Human Flesh being their Savior is all the more cause for liberals to worship him: Credo quia absurdum, I believe it because it is absurd.

Thank heavens that the voting majority of Americans remain Christian and are in no desperate need of a phony savior. He is ridiculous and should not be taken seriously by any thinking American.

And yet he got elected, not once but twice. Thanks to those that did not think it was important to vote for freedom and those that were willing to give up their freedoms for entitlements.

Remember you don't have to be on a southern plantation to be a slave, if you are dependent on government entitlements you just have a different slave owner.

This tragedy is only exceeded by the school teachers who failed to teach it to their students, and is why today our citizens are so politically ignorant, and our country is on the verge of extinction. Let’s face facts; if the teachers are hired to educate our children, does it not make sense they should be qualified by knowing the real history of the union, so they could teach it? I discovered this years ago with only a GED. Let me explain why this is so important.

Most people have the mistaken impression the Constitution limits the power of government at all times. The truth of the matter is during a state of war or national emergency, the President and Congress can do virtually anything they wish if they feel that it is necessary for the safety and security of the nation.

During periods of war or national emergency the Constitution is suspended in favor of a martial law. On March 8 all of the state legislatures voted to declare a state of national emergency and gave the President the authority to assume dictatorial powers during Great Depression, The states voted to suspend the Constitution and on March 9 ,1933 President Roosevelt announced the nation's financial crisis necessitated the temporary suspension of the Constitution.

In 1917, President Woodrow Wilson signed the Trading with the Enemies Act which gave him the authority to assume unconstitutional powers during the time of war. In 1933 President Roosevelt convinced Congress that during a national emergency he would need to assume powers that were not granted to him in the Constitution. 

Congress and the President are not required to follow the Constitution during the time of war or national emergency and the national emergency declared in 1933 has never been lifted. The President since  the suspension of the Constitution has been a military dictator and Congress has allowed him to ignore his duties and responsibilities as defined in the Constitution.

The only way we can restore the Constitution is for Congress to declare the end of the state of national emergency. Each of the states must pass legislation revoking the consent that they gave to the President in 1933.

Send a copy of this to your State Representatives, and ask them why in the hell they don’t take OBUMAS power away, and give it back to the congress. You can also tell them they should have done it years ago if they had any guts to face the Bankers. Also ask them to prove our gold holdings with a real audit. Maybe you will understand there is no gold, and that’s why there is no real CONGRESS. America was born dead, and the article above this one proves it as we have never had a Constitutional Judiciary, and it got progressively worse as time went on, and the Bankers kept manipulating the government to protect their power over money. Money power has always been our real government. We have never had one single Constitutionally elected office holder. Our Constitution is what the bankers say it is. ONLY A NATIONALLY EDUCATED CITIZENS REVOLT CAN FREE US, AS THE WHOLE WORLD ONLY RECOGNIZES THE WINNERS OF A WAR AS LEGITIMATE GOVERNMENTS. You either fight for your freedom or you accept slavery. England was never defeated, they changed tactics to save money, because they were going broke.

An open letter to President Obama

The   Huffington Post   describes Matt Walsh this way: “Matt Walsh is a 27-year-old blogger, talk radio host, husband, and father of twins.”   In fact, Matt Walsh has his own talk radio program called   The Matt Walsh Show,   live, 3 – 6 P. M. (EST) on 630 WLAP. 

An open letter to President Obama     (A letter to remember)
Posted on   October 3, 2013  by   The Matt Walsh Blog


 Dear President Obama,

You strike me as the sort of man who spends a lot of time staring at his own reflection. I wonder, what do you see when you gaze so admiringly at yourself? What image do you find in that mirror of yours? Let me guess: a graceful Greek god with a golden crown, draped in luxurious robes, perched on a giant, magnificent throne atop a mountain in the sky? You see a throng of angels singing your praises and masses of subservient peasants prostrated before you, trembling with fear and awe? You see a man who is more than a man, and a president who transcends the presidency; you see a historic figure of immortal importance?

Yeah, that’s what I thought, and I can’t blame you, Mr. President. By all accounts, you’ve always been an arrogant, haughty narcissist ­ and that was before you became president. Your supporters and your enemies may argue over whether you descended from heaven on the back of a Pegasus, or were birthed from the bowels of Hell to bring about a Biblical apocalypse, but they both agree on one thing: you are a figure of great significance and immense power. You are either the anti-Christ or the Second Coming, with no room for anything in-between. Surely, this talk might cause even a humble man to slip into a state of vanity and pride, so I can only imagine what it must do to a man such as yourself, already so aloof and so conceited.

3-7-2013 1-48-29 PM

That’s why I’m writing this letter. My impression of you is quite different, and it has only been solidified by your performance during this shutdown/Obamacare debate. I find you to be a very small man, Mr. President. Far from larger than life, you are petty, frivolous, pathetic; sneering and pompous but also trifling and narrow. I don’t mean to dismiss or underestimate the damage you have done to this nation ­ it has certainly been profound and lasting ­ but I want you to know that your legacy will not be one of grandeur and brilliance; it will be the legacy of a shameless, desperate bully. Both your opponents and your proponents hoist you up as a world leader with a grand vision, whether benevolent or malevolent. I, on the other hand, believe you have the vision of a temperamental two year old. You simply want to feel like you’re in control; you want to “win,” you want everybody in the room to pay attention to you, and you’ll stomp your feet and whine until you get your way. You govern like a coddled toddler; it’s inappropriate to pejoratively refer to you as a “dictator,” but only because it lends you a certain unwarranted credibility. I think you wish to be a dictator, but instead you’re just a bumbling bureaucrat; easily replaced and even more easily forgotten. You have the ethics of Genghis Khan, but the leadership skills of Michael Scott. This is why we are forced to witness the spectacle of, for instance, our president brazenly threatening to invade another nation for no reason, only to clumsily abandon the idea after being publicly spanked by Putin.

3-21-2012 12-48-22 PM


Your legacy, Mr. President, will be defined by small, shameful things, as your presidency has been primarily a succession of small, shameful things. The platitudes you spouted during your campaign­ the theatrics, the pomp, the hype ­ have all faded. Replaced by the scheming partisan machinations that have come to define your tenure.

Every president has a moment that encapsulates their time in office; your moment, Mr. President, happened this week. Sure, future generations will look at you with mockery and scorn because of bigger scandals ­ Benghazi, the IRS targeting conservatives, Obamacare, the birth control mandate and your attacks on religious liberty, spying on journalists, arming terrorists overseas, Fast and Furious, the green energy scams, the bailouts, your support for infanticide, the billions you’ve given to the abortion industry, your cowardice in refusing to address the Gosnell murders, your reckless exploitation of the Zimmerman trial, the out of control deficit spending, your refusal to enforce immigration laws, the massive expansion of the Welfare State, the lies, the broken promises, etc ­ but I think, in an understated way, what you’ve done this week is a better microcosm of your entire reign.

10-1-2013 10-25-59 AM

I’m not just referring to the fact that you are peddling the lie that “Republicans” have “shutdown the government, ”when in fact, they have attempted to pass several bills that would fund the government. Mr. President, you tell these fables to the trained seals in the media and your voting base, but you know darn well that any American with a capacity for critical thought will roundly reject this absurd narrative. YOU have chosen to “shut down” the government because you have made Obamacare the ultimate priority. You have said, “Obamacare or nothing,” and then accused Republicans of being the “hostage takers.” They are holding the government hostage by trying to fund it? What a silly idea. But then, you are a silly, ridiculous president. Speaking of which, this takes us right to your defining moment: barricading memorials and monuments in a ploy to win an argument.

Comparatively insignificant when stacked up against your war crimes and constitutional infringements, but it is nonetheless an apt illustration. The Lincoln Memorial is just a giant statue. There isn’t any reason why people shouldn’t be able to look at a statue during a government shutdown. In past shutdowns, the memorials were open, with only the information centers closing down. The Lincoln Memorial has never been completely closed off from the public until now. You have decided to spend money to block and guard open-air monuments, when it would be cheaper, require less staff, and be less onerous to simply leave them be. Is this some sort of bizarre punitive measure against the American taxpayer?

5-22-2013 2-21-52 PM

Infamously, you even attempted to stop WW2 veterans from visiting the WW2 memorial. That memorial is mostly privately funded, and is open 24 hours a day. You SPENT MONEY to physically guard the monument from a group of elderly war veterans. This is truly unprecedented. We have had horrible presidents in the past, but none quite so shallow, cheap and contemptible. You tried to close down Mt. Vernon, which is privately funded, but had to settle for closing its parking lot ­ even though the parking lot requires no immediate on-going maintenance or surveillance from any federal workers. Did you have to shut down the Normandy cemetery and memorial? Are we saving money that way? I doubt it. 

It’s the same game you played during the sequester, and it comes as no surprise to those of us who pay attention (which means it came as a surprise to a large number of people). Rather than leading like a statesman, you hide in the shadows; scheming, conniving, exploiting. You emerge only to make hyper-partisan speeches, with rhetoric best left to Democratic talking heads on afternoon cable news shows. Far from being a “new kind of politician” (as you were advertised), you are the most political politician this country has ever seen. You are political to your core, in your essence, at an atomic level, and so you are unable to offer any direction or clarity when the nation needs it most. Sometimes, Mr. President, the affairs of this nation require a man, not a politician, and it is during those times that you are especially useless. You don’t have any interest in fixing our present crisis because you’re too busy finding ways to keep a busload of 90 year old war veterans from looking at a memorial.

10-18-2011 7-10-19 PM

Closing down parks, monuments and memorials just to score political points is hardly your most insidious deed, but it’s certainly one of your pettiest. That’s why it stands, ironically, as a monument of its own. If we ever build a statue of you, Mr. President, you won’t be triumphantly holding a flaming torch like Lady Liberty, or standing authoritatively with a look of determination, like the MLK memorial. No, it will be a statue of you pulling the wings off of a fly, or spitting in someone’s orange juice. It will show you in your essence, as monuments are meant to do. It will show you as a petulant, skulking, juvenile bully. It will show you as you are.

And we’ll make sure it’s always open, especially during a government shut down.

Sincerely,

Matt Walsh
In God We Trust

America The Real Evil Empire

March 30th, 2014 by

2014-03-29-the-real-evil-empire.htm?From=News

By Stephen Lendman

March 30, 2014
Subject: Police State

 

None in human history compare to America. It's by far the most lawless. It's the world's most egregious civil and human rights abuser.

It's done more harm to more people for longer than any combination of other nations. None match its ruthlessness.

It's genocidal legacy is longstanding. It began in pre-colonial days. Expanding America from sea to shining sea claimed tens of millions of lives.

Mass extermination became policy. Centuries of slaughter reduced America's indigenous population to a tiny fraction of its original numbers.

Ward Churchill's chilling quote bears repeating. He minced no words, saying:

Millions were "hacked apart with axes and swords, burned alive and trampled under horses, hunted as game and fed to dogs, shot, beaten, stabbed, scalped for bounty, hanged on meathooks and thrown over the sides of ships at sea, worked to death as slave laborers, intentionally starved and frozen to death during a multitude of forced marches and internments, and, in an unknown number of instances, deliberately infected with epidemic diseases."

Five centuries of slavery were horrific. Black Africans were captured, branded, chained, force-marched, beaten, encaged, and stripped of their humanity.

Around 100 million were sold like cattle. Millions perished during the Middle Passage.

Imagine packing human beings like cargo. Imagine them under deplorable conditions. Imagine them in coffin-sized spaces.

Imagine practically one atop others in extreme discomfort. Imagine poor ventilation, dysentery, smallpox, ophthalmia, and other epidemic-level diseases.

Imagine dark, filthy, slimy, bloody, vomity conditions below deck. Imagine it filled with human excrement.

Imagine women beaten and raped. Imagine claustrophobia driving some victims insane.

Imagine floggings and clubbings to death. Imagine anyone thought diseased dumped overboard like garbage.

Imagine 50 million or more lost lives. Imagine slave traders calling it a cost of doing business.

Genocidal US policy continues in new forms. Mass murder proceeds efficiently.

Technological advances facilitate it. America's killing machine knows no limits. One genocide follows others.

Countries are ravaged and destroyed. Neither world war should have been waged. Tens of millions died needlessly.

Making the world safe for democracy is a convenient illusion. America tolerates it nowhere.

Achieving unchallenged raw power drives US policy. Mass slaughtering human beings doesn't matter.

Imperial Japan was defeated many months before WW II ended. In February and March 1945, Tokyo was gratuitously firebombed twice.

So were many other Japanese cities. Hundreds of thousands of civilians perished. Millions were left homeless.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki were two of history's great crimes. Imaging incinerating civilians gratuitously.

Imagine horrific radiation poisoning. Imagine disfigurations and birth defects. Imagine the effects of what happened still being felt.

Imagine no apologies for generations of crimes. Imagine turning North Korea into rubble. Imagine running out of targets to bomb.

Imagine an uneasy armistice persisting. Imagine possible nuclear war erupting. Imagine East Asia caught in the fallout.

Imagine crazed US policymakers bearing full responsibility. Imagine Washington's unparalleled killing machine power.

Imagine ruthlessness writ large. Imagine horrendous suffering beyond human comprehension. Imagine all humanity threatened.

America's post-WW II ravaging repeats with disturbing regularity. Southeast Asia was laid waste. Proxy wars killed millions worldwide.

All US direct, indirect and supported wars have no rules. Laws of war are ignored. Rampaging goes unchecked.

America was complicit in Rwandan massacres. Desert Storm was a well-planned criminal attack.

Essential to life facilities were destroyed. Tens of thousands were gratuitously slaughtered.

Twelve years of genocidal sanctions followed. Children under age five suffered most. Bush II killed millions more.

Afghanistan remains America's longest war. No end in sight looms. The cradle of civilization was destroyed.

Free market plunder replaced it. Inside the bubble is paradise. Outside reflects dystopian hell.

Balkan wars destroyed the former Yugoslavia. They culminated in US-led NATO terror-bombing Serbia/Kosovo.

Thousands of sorties ravaged and destroyed them. Imagine considering schools, churches, hospitals and cultural landmarks strategic targets.

Imagine a gratuitous humanitarian disaster. Imagine it against one nonthreatening country after another.

Libya remains a cauldron of violence. No one is safe anywhere. Obama's war on Syria continues. Iran's turn awaits.

Expect other targeted countries to be attacked. Expect no safe place to hide.

Imagine the supreme crime of aggression. Imagine it ongoing in multiple theaters.

Imagine America's dirty handiwork. Imagine crimes too grim to ignore. Imagine genocide as official policy.

Imagine new victims following earlier ones. Imagine dead bodies piling up. Imagine young boys and girls. Imagine the elderly, infirm and disabled.

Imagine America bearing full responsibility for devastated landscapes. Imagine what desperately needs ending continued.

Imagine humanity threatened. Imagine media scoundrels cheerleading what demands condemnation.

Imagine supporting Israel's killing machine. Imagine billions of annual aid dollars supporting it.

Imagine ongoing subjugating talks called peace ones. Imagine longstanding occupation turning Palestine into a virtual open-air prison.

Imagine being denied all rights. Imagine world leaders turning a blind eye. Imagine dying for many being their only escape.

Imagine what no human being should tolerate being done to another.

Imagine Washington and Israel partnering in each other's crimes. Imagine both nations being lawless warrior states.

Imagine them using weapons causing injuries, disfigurements and other effects never seen before.

Imagine unparalleled barbarism. Imagine crimes against humanity without end. Imagine weapons able to end life on earth. Imagine possibly using them.

Imagine hubris writ large threatening everyone. Imagine overreach risking armageddon.

Washington's Ukrainian agenda reflects its latest imperial adventurism. Protests didn't erupt by chance.

They were well-planned in advance. At issue is weakening and isolating Russia. It's turning Kiev West, not East. It's plundering its resources. It's exploiting its people.

It's incorporating all former Soviet republics and Warsaw pact countries into NATO. It's establishing US bases on Russia's borders.

It's having nuclear-armed missiles targeting its heartland. 
Including Ukraine in NATO risks WW III.

America, Israel and key EU partners comprise the real axis of evil. They're out-of-control rogue states.

Former French Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau (1841 – 1929) once said "America is the only nation in history which miraculously has gone directly from barbarism to degeneration without the usual interval of civilization."

Oscar Wilde (1854 – 1900) said the same thing. He called patriotism "the virtue of the vicious."

George Bernard Shaw (1856 – 1950) called democracy "a form of government that substitutes elections by the incompetent many for the appointment of the corrupt few."

Perhaps he had America in mind. Obama's rap sheet reflects the worst of its policies. He's in charge until January 2017.

He's got lots more warmaking in mind. He plans hardening America's police state apparatus. He wants dissent silenced.

He wants opposition crushed. He wants freedom destroyed. It hangs by a thread. So does world peace.

Neocon infested Washington wages war on humanity. Obama risks extinguishing it altogether. Stopping him matters most.

Resistance is crucial. It's our only defense. Solidarity unites us. We're all in this together. We're on our own to survive.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

It’s after reading articles like this that I would give all I own for the ability to write as clearly as Jefferson’s Voice, Stephen Lendman, Brandon Smith, Brandon Turbeville, and so many other great word smiths. Not to make money or fame, but to create a hole in the hearts of many readers and fill it with elucidations they would never forget. Please forgive my uneducated word fumbles as I try to explain the agony of discovering how complicit I have been in the past with this excruciatingly false patriotism that makes us convinced we were doing good by killing and other atrocities to our fellow human beings. Now that I know the real circumstances surrounding Americas’ wars, and how I, and so many others ate it up like feeding a starving man, my shame is an unbearable stench in my mind. What makes it even worse is there are still men I love like brothers should, who would reject me forever without even considering why I have changed, if they read this. Since I am not a silver tongued gymnast, I feel challenged to express my hatred of the people who created an education, and media industry that would turn normal human beings into brutal murders of other humans while glorying in a sense of rightist superiority. The past history of the United States of America is no doubt why there are so few interested in studying history. Once you learn the truth, it’s damn hard to look in a mirror. I pray my brothers will take the time to learn why I can no longer praise my country. All it took was a hand full of genius Bankers, and we became stupid brain washed monsters. At this point in our history, we must redeem our selves by sending these Bankers and their elite lackeys to an agonizing extermination. We must never again let our country become A Nation Beguiled. This is not a denial of responsibility for our atrocities, but an acknowledgement of how we were made to feel justified by being loyal to a piece of cloth. Being free from government tyranny (the Bankers Pawns) means being constantly informed and alert to subversive politicians as they attempt to follow orders from above. Never think for a moment that we are choosing the lesser of two evils, as elections are the most polluted of all their tools. The statist mentality is an admission of being totally uninformed. Only weak minded people need leaders, as the laws of nature are imprinted on an informed mind. Never believe you need a collage degree to know right from wrong. It’s written on your heart. If we continue to believe the lies of the politicians we will be eliminated.

LETS BE HONEST!

March 24th, 2014 by

3-23-2014 10-33-42 PMOk, most of us with more than two inches between our ears know, this Nation started from our resistance to tyranny. What most do not know is, we have never been really free, as we have been led to believe. Because Great Britain’s King was the owner of America and all of its natural resources, and had corporate investors to satisfy, he could not just go belly up on them, so he decided to fake a surrender to stop the cost of the war, and keep a part of the resources to satisfy his investors, his own greed, and good name. The Constitution is a contract between the framers and the King, and the party that negotiated on our behalf were traitors. Since most of you will refuse to believe that, let’s put in behind us for the moment, and concentrate on where we are today.

The International Investment Banking Cartel grew from the Rothschild’s business ventures to various other Bankers he helped to grow rich, and they have been working through various elites in business and government to bleed the Nation dry and gain absolute control of our government; then they expanded to all of the planets other governments with the Central Banking system, as their means of gaining control of their governments.

Today, the are the real rulers of planet Earth, along with the Catholic Church, who the King had ceded England to, to save his soul.

Again, I doubt if many readers will believe this either but the long and short of all this tyranny is we are now indebted to a group of Bankers and others who are demanding through various means of deceit to be given acknowledged control of all Nations, called The New World Order.

They have used so many different methods of coercing Industry, Wall Street, Our Governments both Federal and State, that few people are really aware of the extent of their control, or who owns what.

Here is a letter from Jefferson’s Voice to assist your understanding.

One reason I am very saddened of late is that I see what is left of the resistance to NWO mendacity is allowing itself to be infiltrated, deceived, and fractured with this BS on Russia (and China, and BRICS).  The day before yesterday I was reading where Russia is moving forward in partnership with the US and Europe on implementing smart grid! (Picture the diagram in Patrick Wood's presentation where the globalists want smart grid literally connected around the globe).  Russia is adopting Agenda 21, the Trilateralist (and Zionists) spread their tentacles into Russia after its economy collapsed, and Putin supports NWO regionalization.  Then there is Antony Sutton's research proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that American financiers and industrialists (and international bankers) financially and logistically supported the rise of the USSR and Hitler.  So how can we possibly think that Russia has not already been captured and is now a pawn?  

Does this make sense to you?  I don't mean to put you on the spot, I am merely hoping that my points demonstrate a clear pattern and then there is the MOTIVE as to why the global elite would continue to pit country against country for profit and control. 

Sadly, we must acknowledge that Chussodovsky (Global Research) is like Tarpley, he is a resolute socialist, and as such will not "go all the way" to condemn world wide socialism.  These elite intellectuals believe that global socialism is a good thing and they blindly think by exposing the corruption they can get the right people to be rulers.

They are statists and as such have a large blind spot that you and I do not have. I think the best educational tools for now are the Antony Sutton videos presented with introductions.  Talk to you again soon, dear friend.  Please watch these videos when you have time.  Thanks.

Are you getting the big picture yet folks? Are you beginning to understand what we are up against, and our own complicity in this mess? That’s right folks, we are just as responsible as the Bankers. We should have known just by instinct alone that something was fishy, when it took so little to convince us to sacrifice our children in all the wars posted above. So what, if we were enticed to concentrate on having fun and more things than we needed. Why were we so easily fooled into supporting the death of so many thousands of our own families? Even today, after all these un-necessary tragedies, we will send our children to war at the drop of a hat. Maybe more of us older folks should get off our ass and do some reading, instead of listening to the talking heads on the evening news, which is owned and controlled by the elites. Does it not embarrass you to see how easy it has been for them to get us to cut our own throats, not to mention our souls? Sane Nations do not murder people unless they are under attack, or have proof its coming. We have a debt alright, but it’s not to the damn Bankers, it’s to the men and women who have died in vain. You would do well to go here and read about one of the few real heroes’, America has produced; General Smedley Butler. War Is A Racket , Who Pays The Bills? , How To Smash This Racket! , To Hell With War!   Let’s be really honest again, and stop the New World Order, make your demands known by all who represent you. CLEAN HOUSE DOWN TO THE LAST MOUSE. WE NEED LEADERS WHO CANNOT, AND WILL NOT BE COERCERED! GET US OUT OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER!

Obama, US gov’t must be removed to save mankind: Presidential candidate LaRouche

March 22nd, 2014 by

http://www.pakalertpress.com

By Editor

Eight-time presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche Jr., who wrote an open letter to Congress calling for impeachment of

 President Barack Obama a few days ago, in interview with the Voice of Russia shared his opinion on US foreign politics,

the current situation in Ukraine and the NSA surveillance program’s violation of the constitution.

3-21-2014 10-02-29 AM

“As the following attests, during his time in office President Obama has lied repeatedly to the American people and the Congress and has subverted the US Constitution on behalf of foreign interests—the British/Saudi axis—and its allies. In his recent adventure in Ukraine, he is about to lead the United States into World War III.” So reads a letter by Lyndon LaRouche Jr., published in the Washington Times a few days ago.

In an interview with the Voice of Russia, LaRouche once again insisted the urgency of impeaching Obama in order to save mankind:

 “Obama’s presidency as well as the Bush–Cheney presidency has been a force of pure evil not only inside US but also for Europe and elsewhere around the world. We have had great difficulty in trying to secure removal of this presidency because it is essentially a protégé of the British Empire. For example Wall Street is the British imperial extension into the US, so it is really a problem. I’m involved in working with nations who asked me to work with them in order to try to get some kind of solution because we are going towards a very dangerous trade in human existence, the world economy is in terrible mess, the danger for humanity is enormous and we have to put this system back on the right course.”

The 92 year old political veteran also shared his point of view on the current situation in Ukraine and its current government. He stressed that the most important thing to do now is to get rid of the Nazis who are in control of the country’s government.

“It was a bluff by the UK and by certain forces like the Obama government in the US. They tried to see if they could bluff President Putin to obey their pressing demands. And they were the ones who organized the Nazi element in Ukraine to be a government. This was done by the Cheney circles inside the US who had been the Vice President of the US. This was a bluff. Alternative was which the British acceptor tried to avoid, they said: ’”We’d get Russia to collapse and give us the confessions we demand. Then we will be able to take on Asia piecemeal, because once Russia is crashed then Asia becomes highly vulnerable too.” President Putin has done a very good job for his part in resisting every temptation to make big mistakes.”

LaRouch also spoke about Edward Snowden and the NSA surveillance program’s violation of the constitution.

“Snowden was and remains a patriot of the US but his was under a fascist-like dictatorship in the section of government that he served and he was smart enough to know that he would be assassinated if he remained in the US. So then he took measures, and had hosting by President Putin. Snowden is essentially a good person. These people in the US government are in stark violation of the constitution of the US. They are criminals and we know these people must be removed from power if we want to save the peace of the planet.”

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

It is apparent to me that the best minds in our world are chasing their tail, all because they are afraid to support a project that will scare the hell out of millions of uninformed citizens. Until we as a majority are all equally informed and come to the obvious conclusion that the people at the top of this atrocity must be eliminated and their assets fairly distributed to the various governments world wide, and only then, will there even be a possibility of peace. The International Investment Banking Cartel must be completely eliminated, right down to their family and supporters. They are a cancer to society and will continue to spread worldwide until freedom is no longer remembered. One does not have to be super intelligent to protect their own life. There is no end to how surreptitious these scumbags can be, and as an example, he is playing the limited hangout of no international cabal, and he is pumping the big psychological operation that Russia is defending itself from the US bully when we know that the Russian elite have already sold out to the apex globalists.  This is theater and that must be known or else when the next contraction comes more people will not wake up to question globalism or ever understand Hegelian dialectics. Russia is now on board with agenda 21, as are virtually all nations now. Putin is also supporting the creation of regional governments (New World Order). Here are some excerpts from Wiki on LaRouche: "LaRouche began writing in 1973 about the use of certain psychological techniques on recruits. In an article called "Beyond Psychoanalysis", he wrote that a worker's persona had to be stripped away to arrive at a state he called "little me," from which it would be possible to "rebuild their personalities around a new socialist identity," according to The Washington Post.[41] The New York Times wrote that the first such session—which LaRouche called "ego-stripping"—involved a German member, Konstantin George, in the summer of 1973; LaRouche said that during the session he discovered that a plot to assassinate him had been implanted in George's mind."   [Classic Psychopath!]  "[A 1979  New York Times article] alleged that [LaRouche's Labor Party] members had taken courses in how to use knives and rifles; that a farm in upstate New York had been used for guerrilla training; and that several members had undergone a six-day anti-terrorist training course run by Mitchell WerBell III, an arms dealer and former member of the Office of Strategic Services, who said he had ties to the CIA. Journalists and publications the party regarded as unfriendly were harassed, and it published a list of potential assassins it saw as a threat. LaRouche expected members to devote themselves entirely to the party, and place their savings and possessions at its disposal, as well as take out loans on its behalf. Party officials would decide who each member should live with, and if someone left the movement, his remaining partner was expected to live separately from him. LaRouche would question spouses about their partner's sexual habits, the Times said, and in one case reportedly ordered a member to stop having sex with his wife because it was making him "politically impotent." Triple check everything you learn.

Had Enough of ObamaCare You Aint Heard Nothin Yet!

March 21st, 2014 by

http://www.activistpost.com/2014/03/had-enough-of-obamacare-you-aint-heard.html

3-21-2014 11-22-35 AM

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Activist Post

With all the spin, fallacies, half-truths, and a few facts thrown in regarding the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, readers probably have not heard some of the more egregious stories making the rounds.

Before I’m castigated for not liking ObamaCare, let me say that back in the 1980s and ‘90s I was working for affordable and effective healthcare for everyone in the USA, long before Mr. Obama came on the political scene. Anyone with half a brain understood, even back then, that we needed healthcare reform, but not healthcare destruction!

The number one issue I have with ObamaCare is how it was passed into law. I contend it was passed under duress, i.e., Nancy Pelosi’s “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it.” That’s downright ILLEGAL! Why did Congress fall for such arm twisting, ploy, and deceit? When parties don’t know the full facts, or information is kept from them during negotiations, according to contract law that contract is not valid and is non-negotiable. On that fact alone, the U.S. Supreme Court should have ‘displayed’ certain parts of the male anatomy to reject ObamaCare when it came up before it, instead of reclassifying it as a “tax.” SCOTUS’s ruling is something that many legal minds question. Congress initiates, passes/enacts, and modifies legislation.

The second issue I have with ObamaCare is how it’s being manipulated by the White House when only Congress should be initiating changes to that unfortunate law. Apparently, there is total disregard for that branch of government by the sitting POTUS. Why is Obama so at odds with Congress? Wasn’t he the one who ran on a platform that his administration would be the most transparent administration, all while having Washington work better? 

To elucidate on that point, the Cato Institute produced the paper, “The Promise That Keeps on Breaking.”

The Hill blog posted this ominous report March 19th, “Issa steers Oversight back to ObamaCare” along with sending a five-page letter regarding Healthcare.gov security concerns. 


Congress needs to get down to the bottom of the ObamaCare fiasco. However, if no one wants to ‘talk’ or surrender requested information, maybe waterboarding tactics ought to be used; what do you think? I’m one who does not believe in violence, but enough is enough already with this ObamaCare ‘racketeering’ BS. After all, the CIA used waterboarding on others to get information, maybe it will work to get ObamaCare information that’s needed in order to get on with no longer disenfranchising previously insured individuals from their insurance plans or doctors—between five and six million to date.


Furthermore, what kind of health insurance program is ObamaCare when only about five million supposedly have signed on—we don’t know how many have paid premiums to date—whereas 44 million un-insureds were the targets to get health insurance? What kind of cockamamie health insurance game plan is that? But, that’s not all. Listen up!

The third issue with ObamaCare I have is that insurance premiums are going to SOAR as soon as the mid-term elections in November are in the history books. According to The Hill blog,

Jon Gruber, who also helped design the Affordable Care Act, said, “The bottom line is that we just don’t know. Premiums were rising 7 to 10 percent a year before the law. So the question is whether we will see a continuation of that sort of single digit increase, as Sebelius said, or whether it will be larger.” [….] 

Political operatives will be watching premium increases this summer, most notably in states where there are contested Senate races. 

In Iowa, which hosts the first presidential caucus in the nation and has a competitive Senate race this year, rates are expected to rise 100 percent on the exchange and by double digits on the larger, employer-based market, according to a recent article in the Business Record. [1] [CJF emphasis added]

There’s an aphorism that goes like this: “If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it’s gotta be a duck.” Interpolating that to ObamaCare, if it looks like a scam, operates like a scam, and advertises like a scam, it’s gotta be a scam! Why can’t Democrats who voted for it and citizens demand ObamaCare be repealed? 

There are numerous—too many to mention—other problems with ObamaCare. However, just to mention one, in particular, is how senior citizens are being treated under ACA dictates [2], which should be trashed immediately. Actually, and in my opinion, ObamaCare provides absolute disrespect for the elderly sick and their quality of life. Seniors deserve better than that! They paid the freight on this country all their working lives. 

The Robert Powell Center for Medical Ethicspublished online “Obamacare Routes to Rationing” wherein these points are discussed:

1.    How Obamacare’s “Excess Benefits” Tax Will Prevent Health Insurance from Keeping Up with Medical Inflation 

2.    How Insurance Exchanges Are Limiting Your Ability to Use Your Own Money to Save Your Family Members’ Lives 

3.    Medicare: How Obamacare Limits Senior Citizens’ Ability to Use Your Own Money to Save Your Own Lives 

4.    How Obamacare Will Limit What Health Care Providers Can Do to Save the Lives of Your Family Members [3]

As Judge Andrew Napolitano points out, the U.S. government mismanages the U.S. Post Office, Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid – and those programs are BROKE! Why give the feds something else to muck up, especially healthcare in the USA, which was one of the best—if not the best—in the world until Mr. Obama with his fancy mouth work (lies) came on the scene.

But the piece-de-resistance regarding Obama-style health initiatives, according to The Washington Times, is this:

Michelle Obama may have pushed the White House pastry chef a bit too far with her constant requests to replace fatty foods like cream and butter with lower-calorie options: He’s quit, calling the decision “bittersweet,” various media reported. [2]

To quote WH Pastry Chef Bill Yosses, “I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs.”

Even though I’m a natural nutritionist who does not support high calorie desserts, I’m glad to see someone finally stand up for what he believes in. Chef Yosses has my admiration because he took a stand for something he found objectionable to him, which most U.S. citizens are not doing with regard to ObamaCare, especially members of Congress and the Supreme Court who, in my humble opinion, should know better.

But then, maybe we ought to be asking if Archie Bunker had the Democrats sized up correctly?

CIA: The Rogue Agency Collides with the Corrupt US Senate

March 18th, 2014 by

http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=4478

Posted by stateofthenation2012

The War Of The Titans Finally Begins

What is truly surprising about this “Clash of the Titans” is that hardly anyone’s talking about it in the terms that reflects just how big it really is. Can it get any bigger than CIA vs. SENATE?
That’s like Muhammad Ali vs. Mike Tyson. It’s just not supposed to happen … and yet it is … in real time.

3-18-2014 12-27-55 PM

When this first battle is over between Feinstein et al. and her opponents at Langley, the battlefield will be littered with political carcasses of every stripe and bureaucrats of every color. This is, incidentally, only the first battle of what will become a very long and ugly war. When the greater war is finished, there will be no winners, only losers.  Just as it should be.

What exactly is a rouge agency?

ROGUE:
(definition according to Dictionary.com)
adjective

no longer obedient, belonging, or accepted and hence not controllable or answerable; deviating, renegade: a rogue cop; a rogue union local.
 

Documented history is replete with authoritative accounts of the CIA (aka The Company) going rogue whenever, wherever, however it wants to. Answering to know one — ever — it marches to the beat of its own drummer. Although we cannot know exactly who that drummer is, we can extrapolate its identity by simply viewing the damage and destructionThe Company has wrought across the planet.  Their agenda ALWAYS gives itself away by asking one simple question — “Qui bono?”.  Who is it that reaps the most substantial gains from the ‘execution’ of the ever-covert CIA agenda?

The CIA Always Hides – Conveniently – Behind National Security ‘Shield’

The one obvious reason why the CIA has always gotten away with “bloody murder” wherever it sets up shop is because of the ongoing ruse known as invoking “National Security”.  Has there ever been a bigger scam pulled on the American people, year after year, decade after decade?  The way this little game works is that The Company has always, and will always, invoke this sacrosanct excuse for doing anything it wants to do, anywhere, anytime, IN THE NAME OF NATIONAL SECURITY.   After all, who would ever argue with something so untouchable and sacred as our national security?

So, there you have it.  The CIA does what it wants to do, and doesn’t do what it doesn’t want to do — 24/7 — in the interest (usually contrived) of ‘national security’.   Of course, they have a little help with all the preferential legislated process and procedure which has given them plenty of cover since their inception.  Before we get into where they really came from, what cover?

The vast majority of CIA operations are black budgeted.  Therefore, they virtually always operate under cover of budgetary darkness, with nary a lick of real financial scrutiny or genuine congressional oversight.  In other words, you simply cannot “follow the money” because there are limited funds budgeted by congressional appropriations ($14.7 billion in 2013).  Much of what is appropriated is allocated for all the obvious and non-clandestine administrative and operating costs like overhead for the CIA’s headquarters in Langley, Virginia.  For all practical purposes, CIA black operations are virtually invisible.

When it comes to the multitude of black operations conducted by the CIA worldwide, they are also immune to public disclosure because everything associated with them is ultra-classified and top secret.  Not only will the details of their work never be disclosed in our lifetimes, they will be kept secret for all future generations.  These are the ground rules that the CIA set up at its very inception.  Perhaps it’s because The Company is nothing but a newer incarnation of its predecessor known as the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) that they off on the  wrong foot.  

The OSS was the US wartime Intelligence agency created in June of 1942 during World War 2 and was the predecessor of the CIA.   The OSS was publicly dissolved in 1945, except that it really wasn’t.  Not only wasn’t it, but its next incarnation — the CIA — became the beneficiary of the German Secret Services, by offering safe refuge to high level administrators and agents, as well as a whole host of Nazi war criminals.  Operation Paperclip was just one of the several initiatives undertaken by the USA to monopolize German (and Nazi) expertise, knowledge and experience in several areas related to their war endeavors.

“Operation Paperclip was the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) program used to recruit the scientists of Nazi Germany for employment by the United States in the aftermath of World War II. It was conducted by the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency (JIOA), and in the context of the burgeoning Cold War, one purpose of Operation Paperclip was to deny German scientific expertise and knowledge to the Soviet Union and the United Kingdom, as well as inhibiting post-war Germany from redeveloping its military research capabilities.”  (Source — Wikipedia - Office of Strategic Services)

In so doing, various processes, procedures and protocols were borrowed when appropriate from the highly ‘respected’ Nazi war institutions.  Overall, the MO by which the CIA would operate globally very closely resembles the secrecy and stealth by which the WWII Nazis became famous.  Herein lies the root problem for the USA, as well as the world-at-large.

3-18-2014 12-26-51 PM

Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely

When any institution is empowered to carry out coup d’états at will, overthrow democratically-elected governments, trigger revolutions both bloodless and violent, and incite civil wars, they necessarily act with total impunity.  The CIA has assassinated scores of world leaders who were presidents and prime ministers, political power brokers and financial elite, corporate CEOs and Chairmen of the Board.

The vast majority of these assassinations were conducted so far under the radar that the deaths were officially attributed to suicide, illness or accident, and get this, natural causes.  There is no organization on Earth that has successfully suicided so many individuals who had not a suicidal bone in their bodies.  To this very day the fictitiously written CIA press releases, news accounts and obituaries serve as the ‘definitive’ record of many of those cold-blooded murders cloaked with suicide.

Any institution, which is deputized to take out the powerful and influential, moneyed and famous, who pose a threat to the politically-correct agenda of TPTB, will eventually self destruct.  The usual process of such self-destruction follows a time-honored pattern that flows from hubris.  The accumulated institutional arrogance and hierarchal ignorance eventually sets up the organizational leadership to provoke an adversary more powerful, or well connected, that it is.  Today we see the Senate pounding its chest like never before in the face of CIA spying on Congress, as an example.

Ultimately, such a confrontation was inevitable.  Any agency that is so used to always getting its own way will never be successfully reined in.  How can it be when “Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely“.  However, such a rogue agency will eventually cross all the red lines one too many times, as many see the CIA do around the world every single day.  They’re constantly revealing themselves through their handiwork, so that it’s now next to impossible not to recognize where they’ve just been.  Wherever there’s manufactured chaos and confusion, or unprovoked violence and mayhem in a strategic geopolitical location, the CIA ‘s fingerprints are usually all over the crime scene.

Both the CIA and NSA have shown themselves to be completely without conscience.  Likewise, and more significantly, they have no inclination toward any degree of self-restraint.  Like kids in a candy store, they’re incorrigible.  Why should those with political agendas and axes to grind not see their plans through, when they know they can act with total impunity.  No one can stop them.  Very few even know about their countless plots and furtive schemes.  And all of the high-level administrators and deep cover operatives who do have been indoctrinated that all is acceptable … and performed in the vital interest of national security.

Like the well-known upper levels within Freemasonry, those who populate leadership in the CIA are chosen because they show no tendency to ever leave the spook reservation.  They also know that they can never leave, since it’s always a lifetime membership once you’re initiated.  Unless, of course, one cares not about being suicided … or worse.  At the end of the day, The Company rarely has to worry about someone turning in their resignation for these reasons.  Even those who appear to leave are usually involved in a psyop of some kind for one side or the other*.

3-18-2014 12-25-42 PM

“Who ever has the biggest dog wins the fight.”

There’s an old saying in Florida politics that goes something like that.  To a great extent, in mundane matters, it’s true.  In the instant case of CIA vs. SENATE, it’s a little more complicated.  However, as far as We the People are concerned, the more complicated the better, since a long and protracted war between them will eventually precipitate plenty of much needed revelation on both parties.

More importantly, to expose them both for the corrupt and dangerous institutions that each has become is the ideal outcome.  In this way, as they again say in Florida, sunshine can be the best disinfectant.   Sometimes, all that’s needed is a little sunlight to shine on that which is seriously infected, especially throughout institutions as sick as the CIA (and NSA).

In light of the most “shocking” and “outrageous” stories about the CIA spying on the most august Congressional body, one thing is certain:  There are surely many more victims of CIA espionage than the Congress.  Why not the Supreme Court?  Or the General Accounting Office?  How about the IRS and the Federal Reserve?  Certainly the White House itself is not immune to CIA espionage, is it?  Neither is the Justice Department nor the U.S. Patent Office.

Once this genie of highly consequential revelation is out of the bottle, it will be impossible to put back.  Which will only accelerate and intensify the many battles and wars that are sure to come.  This is the way that revolutions occur.  Once a critical mass of individuals understands the depth and breath of criminal activity being committed in their name, and with their tax dollars, the rebellion will start in earnest.   From this point on, it really is just a matter of ‘execution’ (as they like to say, in the CIA).

Since the seeds of its own destruction were sewn at the inauguration of the Central Intelligence Agency back in 1945, eventually those seeds would sprout into the karmic blowback that is now being witnessed.  The very same strategies and tactics that the CIA has used around the world for decades will be used against it.  Divide and conquer is just one of the many devices used with great effect in nation after nation, toppling governments around the world on a whim.  Now it’s their turn to receive their just desserts.

CIA and NSA: Fric and Frac of US Security State

It should come as no surprise that this CIA-started conflagration is raging right after the NSA World Scandal.  Both of these rogue agencies are expert and reliable at causing real outrage and mischief both at home and abroad.  Even though the CIA is strictly prohibited by federal law from operating as such on American soil, it still manages to muck things up right here in their own back yard.  They simply could not refuse the temptation to implement their agenda, just as they routinely do abroad (See the Ukraine, Venezuela, Syria, Libya, Iran, for their more recent unmitigated disasters).

The entire world has seen for many decades the abuse and misuse of intelligence agencies for the benefit of a few.  Now that the light of day has revealed these two as the Fric and Frac that they really are, they both ought to be frogmarched out of DC, and perhaps off the planet.  What else can be done with these serially criminal agencies with intractable and often odious agendas?

Ideally, it would be quite the development if they both turned on each other so that bully could duke it out with bully.  Just as the CIA vs. SENATE fight is showing us in living color on the evening news.  This particular fight, however, is unlikely to produce a new Heavyweight Champion of the World.  The “War of the Titans” is rarely that short, and usually occurs on many different battlefields over the course of years if not decades.

3-18-2014 12-23-48 PM

Conclusion:

There is another telling parable that, yes, originated in the great State of Florida that goes like this:

You can’t beat City Hall.  Even when you think you’ve won, you really haven’t.  Therefore, better to play it smart.
Wait for City Hall to take on the County.  Or the States to go after the FED.  Or  Congress to mix it up with the CIA.

Playing the David[1] can work quite well by carefully slinging the shot at each Goliath on the battlefield.  If every Goliath is hit between the eyes, you may only knock them down.  However, when they get back up, they are only facing other very angry Goliaths.  Each one will be fighting mad, and will gladly do battle with any other Goliath still standing.
Then, David only needs to sit on the sidelines and watch all the Goliaths go after each other, just like Snowden and Assange are currently doing from their safe havens.

Eventually, the “CIA vs. SENATE” will evolve into an epic and unprecedented brawl involving many more parties than just the three branches of the US Government.  Might as well pull up a seat, sit back and watch the fight.

Author’s Note:

It’s important to note that the CIA has run the extra-judicial drone assassination program from the beginning.  This is what they do.  They kill and murder people who have faced no court or trial or jury.  Just because the CIA labels someone a terrorist, the American people are supposed to accept their verdict and death sentence.  Their ‘convictions’ are neither legal nor moral, and they have done irreparable harm to the nation because of this unlawful and heinous behavior.
The killer drones accurately reflect the predominant and extremely dangerous type of thinking at the CIA.  The Company is truly in the business of death and destruction, murder and mayhem.  And they get away with it all day long, every day, with minimal scrutiny.
Perhaps it’s time for The Company to go bankrupt.  Their purpose in the world seems to be incompatible with those of the great majority of US citizens who only desire peace and prosperity.  Just as the world’s masses strive for a world without war, and a safe place to live, work and play.

Endnotes:

[1] Edward Snowden has done a marvelous job at playing David as the following recent article demonstrates:   Snowden Calls Feinstein Hypocrite on CIA Spying

[2] “Corrupt Senate” refers to its predictable behavior as outlined in the following exposé.  Such a flagrant display of hypocrisy, disregard and betrayal of the American people by the Senate has become par for the political course.
Senators Okay With Spying On Citizens, But Outraged It Happened To Congress

Ukraine Crisis Just Another Globalist Engineered Powder Keg

When one studies history, all events seem to revolve around the applications and degenerations of war. Great feats of human understanding, realization and enlightenment barely register in the mental footnotes of the average person. War is what we remember, idealize and aggrandize, which is why war is the tool most often exploited by oligarchy to distract the masses while it centralizes power.

With the exception of a few revolutions, most wars are instigated and controlled by financial elites, manipulating governments on both sides of the game to produce a preconceived result. The rise of National Socialism in Germany, for instance, was largely funded by corporate entities based in the U.S., including Rockefeller giant Standard Oil, JPMorgan and even IBM, which built the collating machines specifically used to organize Nazi extermination camps, the same machines IBM representatives serviced on site at places like Auschwitz. As a public figure, Adolf Hitler was considered a joke by most people in German society, until, of course, the Nazi Party received incredible levels of corporate investment. This aid was most evident in what came to be known as the Keppler Fund created through the Keppler Circle, a group of interests with contacts largely based in the U.S.

George W. Bush’s grandfather, Prescott Bush, used his position as director of the New York-based Union Banking Corporation to launder money for the Third Reich throughout the war. After being exposed and charged for trading with the enemy, the case against Bush magically disappeared in a puff of smoke, and the Bush family went on to become one of the most powerful political forces in America.

Without the aid of international conglomerates and banks, the Third Reich would have never risen to power.

The rise of communism in Russia through the Bolshevik Revolution was no different. As outlined in Professor Antony Sutton’s book Wall Street And The Bolshevik Revolution with vast detail and irrefutable supporting evidence, it was globalist financiers that created the social petri dish in which the communist takeover flourished.  The same financiers that aided the Nazis…

The two sides, National Socialism and communism, were essentially identical despotic governmental structures conjured by the same group of elites. These two sides, these two fraudulent ideologies, were then pitted against each other in an engineered conflict that we now call World War II, resulting in an estimated 48 million casualties globally and the ultimate formation of the United Nations, a precursor to world government.

Every major international crisis for the past century or more has ended with an even greater consolidation of world power into the hands of the few, and this is no accident.

When I discuss the concept of the false left/right paradigm with people, especially those in the liberty movement, I often see a light turn on, a moment of awareness in their faces. Many of us understand the con game because we live it day to day. We see past the superficial rhetoric of Republican and Democratic party leadership and take note of their numerous similarities, including foreign policy, domestic defense policy and economic policy. The voting records of the major players in both parties are almost identical. One is hard-pressed to find much difference in ideology between Bush and Barack Obama, for example; or Obama and John McCain; or Obama and Mitt Romney, for that matter.

When I suggest, however, that similar false paradigms are used between two apparently opposed nations, the light fades, and people are left dumbstruck. Despite the fact that globalist financiers shoveled capital into the U.S., British, German and Soviet military complexes all at the same time during World War II, many Americans do not want to believe that such a thing could be happening today.

In response, I present the crisis in Ukraine versus the crisis in Syria…

Ukraine Versus Syria

It seems as though much of the public has already forgotten that at the end of 2013, the U.S. came within a razor’s edge of economic disaster — not to mention the possibility of World War III. The war drums in Washington were thundering for “intervention” in Syria and the overthrow of Bashar Assad. The only thing that saved us, I believe, were the tireless efforts of the independent media in exposing the darker motives behind the Syrian insurgency and the bloodlust of the Obama Administration. The problem is that when the elites lose one avenue toward war and distraction, they have a tendency to simply create another. Eventually, the public is so overwhelmed by multiple trigger points and political powder kegs that they lose track of reality. I often call this the “scattergun effect.”

The crisis in the Ukraine is almost a carbon copy of the civil war in Syria, culminating in what I believe to be the exact same intent.

The Money

Money from globalist centers has been flowing into the Ukrainian opposition since at least 2004, when the Carnegie Foundation was caught filtering funds to anti-Russian political candidate Viktor Yushchenko, as well as to the groups who supported him.

The Ukrainian Supreme Court called for a runoff due to massive voter fraud and the rise of the pro-Western Orange Revolution, determining the winner to be Yushchenko over none other than Viktor Yanukovych. Yanukovych went on to win the 2010 elections, and the revolution returned to oust him this year.

It has been discovered that the current revolution has also been receiving funds from NATO and U.S. interests, not just from the State Department, but also from billionaires like Pierre Omidyar, the chairman of eBay and the new boss of journalist Glen Greenwald, the same journalist who is now famous for being the first to expose National Security Agency documents obtained by Edward Snowden.

Much of the monetary support from such financiers was being funneled to men like Oleh Rybachuk, the right-hand man to Yanukovych during the Orange Revolution and a favorite of neoconservatives and the State Department in the U.S.

The International Monetary Fund has also jumped at the chance to throw money at the new Ukrainian regime, which would prevent default of the country and allow the opposition movement to focus their attentions on Russia.

The revolution in Syria was also primarily driven by Western funds and arms transferred through training grounds like Benghazi, Libya. There is much evidence to suggest that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was designed to possibly cover up the arming of Syrian rebels by the CIA, who had agents on the ground who still have not been allowed to testify in front of Congress.

After this conspiracy was exposed in the mainstream, globalist-controlled governments decided to openly supply money and weapons to the Syrian insurgency, instead of ending the subterfuge.

The ‘Rebels’

Some revolutions are quite real in their intent and motivations. But many either become co-opted by elites through financing, or they are created from thin air from the very beginning. Usually, the rebellions that are completely fabricated tend to lean toward extreme zealotry.

The Syrian insurgency is rife with, if not entirely dominated by, men associated with al-Qaida. Governments in the U.S. and Israel continue to support the insurgency despite their open affiliation with a group that is supposedly our greatest enemy. Syrian insurgents have been recorded committing numerous atrocities, including mass execution, the torture of civilians and even the cannibalism of human organs.

The revolution in Ukraine is run primarily by the Svoboda Party, a National Socialist (fascist) organization headed by Oleh Tyahnybok.  Here is a photo of Tyahnybok giving a familiar salute:

3-15-2014 9-21-01 AM

So far, the opposition in Ukraine has been mostly careful in avoiding the same insane displays of random violence that plagued the Syrians’ public image. It is important to remember though that mainstream outlets like Reuters went far out of their way in attempts to humanize Syrian al-Qaida. Their methods were exposed only through the vigilance of the independent media. With the fascist Svoboda in power in the Ukraine, I believe it is only a matter of time before we see video reports of similar atrocities, giving Russia a perfect rationalization to use military force.

John McCain?

I am now thoroughly convinced that John McCain is a pasty ghoul of the highest order. He claims to be conservative yet supports almost every action of the Obama Administration. He is constantly defending anti-Constitutional actions by the Federal government, including the Enemy Belligerents Act, which was eventually melded into the National Defense Authorization Act; NSA surveillance of U.S. citizens; and even gun control.

And for some reason, the guy makes appearances like clockwork right before or during major overthrows of existing governments. McCain was in Libya during the coup against Moammar Gadhafi.

McCain showed up to essentially buy off the rebels in Tunisia.

McCain hung out with al-Qaida in Syria.

And, what a surprise, McCain met with the Ukrainian opposition movement just before the overthrow of Viktor Yanukovych.  Here is a photo of McCain giving a speech to the opposition with none other than Neo-Nazi Oleh Tyahnybok standing over his left shoulder.

3-15-2014 9-21-33 AM

Why McCain? I have no idea. All I know is, if this guy shows up in your country, take cover.

Russia In The Middle

The great danger in Syria was not necessarily the chance of war with Assad. Rather, it was the chance that a war with Assad would expand into a larger conflagration with Iran and Russia. Russia’s only naval facility in the Mideast is on the coast of Tartus in Syria, and Russia has long-standing economic and political ties to Syria and Iran. Any physical action by the West in the region would have elicited a response from Vladimir Putin. The mainstream argument claims that the threat of Russian intervention scared off Obama, but I believe the only reason war actions were not executed by the White House and the globalists was because they didn’t have even minimal support from the general public. For any war, you need at least a moderate percentage of the population to back your play.

In Ukraine, we find the globalists creating tensions between the West and the East yet again. Russia’s most vital naval base sits in Crimea, an autonomous state tethered to the Ukrainian mainland. Currently, Russia has flooded Crimea with troops in response to the regime change in Ukraine. The new Ukrainian government (backed by NATO) has called this an “invasion” and an act of war, while Western warmongers like McCain and Lindsay Graham spread the propaganda meme that Russia made such a move only because Putin believes the Obama Administration to be “weak.”

Clearly, the idea here is to engineer either high tensions or eventual war between Russia and the United States. Syria failed to produce the desired outcome, so the Ukraine was tapped instead.

Energy Markets And The Dollar At Risk

In Syria, any U.S. led military action would have resulted in the immediate closing of the Straight of Hormuz by Iran, threatening to obstruct up to 30% of global petroleum shipments.  Foreign resentment could have easily led to the abandonment of the U.S. dollar as the petro-currency.  Both China and Russia implied the possibility of an economic response to American intervention, though they did not officially go into specifics.  In all likelihood, the dollar's world reserve status would have been damaged irrevocably.

In the Ukraine, the chance of intervention has been countered with VERY specific threats from Russia, including a freeze on natural gas imports to the European Union through Gazprom, which supplies approximately 30% of the EU's fuel.  In 2009, a temporary Ukranian pipeline closure led to widespread shortages across Europe.  While some in the mainstream claim that Russia's influence over EU energy has "diminished" the fact is a loss of 30% of natural gas reserves for an extended period would inflate energy prices wildly and cripple the EU's economy.

Another specific reaction given by Russia is the dumping of U.S. treasury bonds.  Russia's bond holdings may not seem like much leverage, except for the fact that China has now publicly backed Russian efforts in the Ukraine, just as they backed Russian opposition to U.S. activities in Syria.  A dump of bonds by Russia would invariably be followed by a Chinese dump as well.  In fact, China and Russia have been setting the stage for a global dollar decoupling since at least 2008.   I have been warning for years that globalists and central bankers needed a "cover event", a distraction or scapegoat imposing enough to provide a veil of chaos in which they could then destroy the greenback as the world reserve and usher in a global currency system.  The Ukraine crisis offers yet another opportunity for this plan to unfold.

The False Paradigm And The Globalist Chessboard

So far, I have outlined what appears to be a correspondence of conspiracy between Syria and the Ukraine and how each event has the continued potential to trigger regional conflict, dollar collapse, or world war. But is this conspiracy one-sided? Are only the West and NATO being manipulated by globalists to box in Russia and provoke a conflict? And what do globalists have to gain by sparking such disaster?

As with every other catastrophic fabricated war, the goal is the erasure of sovereign identity while consolidating economic, political and social power. It is not enough that global financiers dominate the banking industry and own most politicians; they want to transform the public psyche. They want US to ask THEM for global governance. This manufacture of consent is often achieved by pitting two controlled governments against each other and then, in the wake of the tragedy, calling for global unification. The argument is always presented that if we simply abandoned the concept of nation states and reform under a single world body, all war would “disappear.”

The question is whether Russia’s Putin is aware of the plan. Is he a part of it?  Are we seeing repeat theater of a puppet Russia versus a puppet NATO like that witnessed during the Cold War?

What I do know is that Putin has, a number of times in the past, called for global control of the economy through the IMF and the institution of a new global currency using the IMF’s Special Drawing Rights (SDR).

Loans from the IMF are what saved Russia from debt default in the late 1990s. And Putin has recently called for consultations with the IMF concerning Crimea. Remember, this is the same IMF that is working to fund his opponents in Western Ukraine.

Bottom line, if you believe in national sovereignty and decentralization of power, Putin is NOT your buddy. Once again, we have the globalists injecting money into both sides of a conflict which could morph into something nightmarish.  Putin wants global economic governance and consolidation under the IMF just as much as the supposedly "American-run" IMF wants consolidation. 

Global governance of finance and money creation ultimately means global governance of everything else. Is a war being created through the false paradigm of East versus West in order to pave the road for global government? Are East/West tensions being exploited as a smokescreen for the final destruction of the dollar's world reserve status? It is hard to say if the Ukraine will be the final trigger; however, the evidence suggests that if a conflict occurs, regardless of who “wins” such a scenario, the IMF comes out on top.

Imagine you are playing a game of chess by yourself. Which side wins at the end of that game: black or white? The answer is it doesn’t matter. You always win when you control both sides.

IS IT TIME TO OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES?

March 8th, 2014 by

10-15-2013 5-26-05 PMI am not talking about the clown puppets in Washington D.C. and their minions in the Federal Government, but the true Government of the United States, the Invisible Government that appoints presidents, buys senators and congressmen, controls the system of public education, owns most of the mainstream press, the Federal Banks, the IRS and all federal agencies such as the CIA, NSA, FEMA, DHS, TSA and the rest of the alphabet soup organizations created for the sole purpose of spying on, harassing, repressing and terrorizing the American people.

The Invisible Government of the United States is not a government of the people, by the people, for the people, but a government of the banksters, by the oil magnates, for the transnational corporations.

We the People cannot wait any longer. It is time to overthrow the Invisible Government of the U.S.

A New Declaration of Independence

When in the Course of Human Events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the Earth the separate and equal sovereignty to which the Laws of Nature entitles them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

I hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights. Cardinals among these are Life, Liberty, Property and the weapons to defend those rights.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it by any means necessary, and to institute a new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience has shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evidences a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new safeguards for their future security.

Such has been the patient sufferance of the American people; and such is now the necessity that constrains them to alter their present System of Government. All civil venues of recourse to change the current state of things have been closed to the American people. So, it is time to overthrow the Invisible Government of the United States.

By slow, gradual infiltration, the Invisible Government of the United States has become a veritable imperium in imperio — a government within the government. A government that has never been elected by the votes of the American people. A government that is fully controlled by oil magnates, international bankers and CEOs of transnational corporations ensconced at the Council on Foreign Relations and its parasite organizations in the U.S. and abroad, such as the UN, the Trilateral Commission, the Skull & Bones “fraternity” of Yale University, the Bohemian Grove, the Bilderberg Group, the World Economic Forum, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and others.

Trough their puppets in the U.S. Government, the conspirators of the Invisible Government have been working hard to eliminate the sovereignty of the U.S. and the rest of the countries in this planet and fuse them into a world government under their control. They have opened the southern border to an invasion of illegal aliens and are taking steps to integrate the U.S., Canada and Mexico into a North American Union as a first step to fusing all countries in the hemisphere into an American Union. They encouraged transnational corporations to change well-paid jobs at home into low-paid, quasi-slave jobs abroad. They have destroyed America’s heavy industry. They have systematically poisoned the air we breath, the water we drink and the food we eat. They have turned government schools (also called “public schools”) into centers for brainwashing and political indoctrination. They have been sending our sons and daughters to remote parts of the planet to fight unnecessary wars that only benefit the spurious interests of global bankers and international corporations. They are gradually turning the American Republic into a communo-fascist totalitarian police state.

The history of the present Invisible Government is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Totalitarian Tyranny over the American people — a Totalitarian Tyranny they euphemistically call the New World Order.

But the New World Order is not new and will bring constant chaos rather than order — it is already bringing chaos. It is a return to the servitude of medieval times, where just two social classes existed: the masters living in opulence, comprising the 1% of the population, and the serfs, the 99%, living in the most abject economic and moral misery and with no rights whatsoever.[1]

The Invisible Government has refused to Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. It is time for the American people to abolish this aberrant creation called the Invisible Government of the United States, try the criminals for their treasonous acts and send to prison the ones found guilty. It is time for the American people to restore the Constitution and elect new leaders who respect and protect it from all enemies, foreign and domestic.

How Can We Overthrow the Illegitimate Invisible Government of the United States?

1-8-2014 9-20-01 AM

For more than a century, the CFR conspirators have been waging a psychological war of attrition against the American people. The main type of weapon used in this PsyWar is the meme. Memes are powerful ideas that take control over your mind. While some of them are good, some of them are malignant.[2]

The U.S. military has its bacteriological warfare labs, like the one in Fort Detrick, Maryland, fully devoted to the production of lethal viruses. In the same fashion, the conspirators have their psychological warfare labs, like the Tavistock Institute, the Stanford Research Institute, the RAND Corporation, the Hudson Institute and others, where they create mind viruses in the form of malignant memes.

Therefore, if memes act like viruses, and the two main ways to avoid being contaminated by viruses are immunization and isolation, these prophylactic measures could be applied to memes as well. The best vaccination against malignant memes is to read, watch and listen critically. If you feel yourself agreeing hundred percent with everything a talk radio host, journalist or author says or writes, that is a sure symptom that you have been contaminated by a mind virus.

The other proven and effective way to avoid contagion is isolation. Viruses are usually transmitted by carriers called vectors. The main vectors for the transmission of the malignant memes created in the conspirators’ think tanks are schools —particularly government schools, the ones disingenuously called “public schools—, churches, political parties and the mainstream media.

Like ninja warriors, the main weapon used by the conspirators has been their invisibility. Therefore, in order to win this battle of the mind we need to become shadow warriors ourselves by becoming invisible to our enemies. Given the ability of the conspirators to infiltrate large organizations, the best defensive tactic is to create a multitude of small cells they cannot penetrate.

This type of small cell already exists: it is called your family, and its headquarters is your home. This is the only organization the conspirators cannot infiltrate. They know it, and this explains their efforts to destroy the family as a social unit.

In the case of education, the only sure way to avoid contagion is by not sending your children to government schools. Given the fact, however, that even private schools can be, and actually most of them are, contaminated, the only true solution is home schooling. But even the most drastic measure, no schooling at all, is much better that sending your children to public schools.

In relation to churches, if you discover that your pastor or priest has become an agent for big government disinformation,[3] stop going to church and worship at home. Even better, create a small church at home and invite a few friends and neighbors to join you by attending your religious services.

Finally, you must be aware that the two main political parties have been infiltrated and currently are under the full control of the CFR conspirators. Creating a new party or organization would not help, because eventually the conspirators would manage to infiltrate it the way they infiltrated the Tea Party.

Even the best and well-intentioned candidates running for the Republican or Democratic Party are not good, because, if elected, they will be neutralized by the party’s machinery or co-opted by the conspirators. Moreover, by giving your vote to a Republican or Democratic candidate you are helping to legitimize a corrupt, illegitimate organization. Consequently, the best solution is to create an organization they can’t penetrate. It is called the “no party at all.” Become an independent, and give your vote only to independent candidates. If you cant’ find any candidate that can deserve your vote, run for office yourself.

The best way to fight a mind war is by refusing to let the enemy’s memes get control of your mind. How one can do that? As I have shown above, actually it is very simple and anybody can do it. The only requirement is the will to live as free men.

We are running out of time. We must overthrow the invisible government right away or be prepared to become the obedient serfs of the New World Order.

The ball is now in our court. Either we hit it back and refuse to become the conspirators’ serfs, or lower our heads and accept the yoke, or perhaps our death.

The mad CFR sociopaths in the Invisible Government are finally seeing their most cherished dream coming closer to become a reality: a big war with Russia.[4]Unfortunately, we, not they, are the ones who most likely will pay for their madness.[5]

On the other hand, perhaps we deserve it, for having allowed this nasty bunch of globalist anti-American traitors steal our government and our freedoms. Ultimately, people have the governments they deserve.[6]

It is the duty of all Americans to become informed about the people who have stolen our freedom to live productively and peacefully, and to create education satellites in their own communities. We must all assume a defensive posture before it is too late to recover.

TOLERANCE AND APATHY: THE LAST STAGE

March 6th, 2014 by

http://www.newswithviews.com/Bradlee/dean161.htm

By Bradlee Dean
March 5, 2014
NewsWithViews.com

As I travel the road of life, I find it very interesting how men who lived so long ago and experienced so much of life were able to see what was coming in the future, not to mention what they saw in their own day. Aristotle could not have hit the nail on the head any closer than this:

“Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society.”

I remember looking at a book once that was titled “What Men Have Learned from History.” As I opened the 100-page book, I found that the pages were all blank. The point was well made. Men do not learn from history. Unfortunately, society has proven this to be the case over and over again. In America today you can see the clear digression of society. What was once evil in our eyes some now call good. The high standards of virtue and morality that were once considered to be the foundation of our families are now laughed at and called “old fashioned” and “outdated.”

We now live in a nation where “tolerance” has become some sort of virtue, and “intolerance” for the things that go against God’s Word is called “hate.” The truth is God is love (1 John 4:8), and God gave His Law because He loves. Yet, America has now become so wise in her own eyes that its people have become fools (Romans 1:22).

Those who fought, bled, and died for our country to establish our Constitution, those who sacrificed to make us free were looked upon as heroes. Now, those who stick to the Constitution and fight to make sure it is adhered to are demonized, criticized by the state-run media and labeled “intolerant haters.”

We now live in a country where “evangelical Christians” are labeled by our own military as No. 1 on the list of terrorists; when if it were not for the “evangelical Christians” found in the “Black-Robed Regiment” who fought to give us this country, we would not have a nation to label anyone anything.

Then there are the do-nothings who give way to apathy. They say, “This is America, it will never happen here!” – as they look at the blank pages in the book of history once again and ignore all the signs of the times that clearly point out tyranny in our government, lawlessness and an attack against all that is good.

What has happened, America? Why have we given over to this change from the founding values of our great nation to the lawlessness we see today? The Bible clearly says in Proverbs 24:21, “… meddle not with them that are given to change.” So why are we changing?

America for the most part has cowered shamefully and refused to lawfully fight against evils.

It was Abraham Lincoln who said, “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

Are we allowing our nation to be destroyed? Yes. Are we seeing judgment turned backwards? Yes. But the real question is, are YOU willing to stand up and do something about it? ________ (Your answer here). That remains to be seen.

It’s time for Americans to rise up, learn from the past, and say enough is enough.

Maybe we all could use a little lesson from those who are labeled “old and confused.”

One evening, a grandson was talking to his grandmother about current events. The grandson asked his grandmother what she thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general.

The Grandma replied, "Well, let me think a minute. I was born before television, penicillin, polio shots, frozen foods, Xerox, contact lenses, Frisbees and the pill. There was no radar, credit cards, laser beams or ballpoint pens.

Man had not invented panty hose, air conditioners, dishwashers or clothes dryers, and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air, and man hadn't yet walked on the moon.

Your grandfather and I got married first – and then lived together. Every family had a father and a mother. Until I was 25, I called every man older than I, 'Sir.' We were before gay rights, computer dating, dual careers, daycare centers, and group therapy. Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and common sense. We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong, and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.

Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a bigger privilege. We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent. Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins. Draft dodgers were people who closed their front doors when the evening breeze started. Timesharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends – not purchasing condominiums.

We never heard of FM radios. And I don't ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey. If you saw anything with ‘Made in Japan’ on it, it was junk. The term ‘making out’ referred to how you did on your school exam. Pizza Hut, McDonalds, and instant coffee were unheard of.

We had five and 10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for five and 10 cents. Ice cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a nickel. And if you didn't want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and two postcards. You could buy a new Chevy Coupe for $600, but who could afford one? Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.

In my day, ‘grass' was mowed, 'coke' was a cold drink, 'pot' was something your mother cooked in, and 'rock music' was your grandmother's lullaby. 'Aids' were helpers in the Principal's office, 'chip' meant a piece of wood, 'hardware' was found in a hardware store, and 'software' wasn't even a word. We were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby. No wonder people call us 'old and confused' and say there is a generation gap.”

As I see it, if Tolerance and Apathy are the last stage, and I do believe it is, that means we are in big trouble; as in the ship’s sinking and we have no life boats. The International Investment Banking Cartel and their hundreds of thousands of elite minions have done a real number on us while we were sleeping. They stole our intellect, our courage, our will to propagate, and most all of the attributes needed to retain our freedom from tyrannical governance. I agree we’re in deep dodo, but, I cannot justify giving up till the last drop of blood is gone. It matters not if I lose all my friends because they are afraid to join the battle, and take offense when I ask them to participate. It matters not when I make grammatical blunders and expose my ignorance and it matters not when the NSA puts me on a watch list. I would be insulted if they did not. What does matter is, I stood up and fought back. It may cost me my life and or all I have accumulated in a lifetime of labor, but I cannot stand by and do nothing while my family and countrymen are being raped, murdered, imprisoned, bankrupted, and tortured. If you can justify not being involved in enraging by educating people, there are still things you could do, like do not participate in banking. But you must not sit back and do nothing. You have over three hundred million people depending on you, to fight for freedom. If you do nothing but pass this article link on to your contact list, you have done more than most so called American’s. If you are a Christian, there is nothing on earth or in Heaven that can steal your soul. To die in the act of fighting for God’s country is a joy unspeakable. Fear not!

A NUCLEAR SUBMARINE CAPTAIN AND THE PRESIDENT

March 5th, 2014 by

http://www.newswithviews.com/Ewart/ron142.htm

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Ladies and gentlemen WE HAVE A PROBLEM! Mr. Ewart reports that some so called American’s are complaining that he is too tough, strident and caustic in his articles, to which I say too damned bad. If his complainers had any guts they would wash their own mouth out with soap, and if they had any brains they would apologize to him, and forward his work to everyone they know. America needs a hundred thousand more authors who are even more tough, strident and caustic, to shame those who have no courage or common sense. They should be kissing his ass instead of complaining.


By Ron Ewart

Ladies and gentlemen. We have received some complaints recently that we are being too tough, strident and caustic in our articles. We submit that we aren't being tough enough. The fact is, if we are not stirring your blood, we aren't doing our job. If Americans are so timid and afraid of government that they don't want to hear the truth and from that truth, challenge the government, at any level, then America has absolutely no chance of saving itself ….. from itself. Fear paralyzes and renders the fearful impotent. Fear is the worst enslaver of all. If you fear the government, local, state, or federal, then we strongly suggest you don't read our articles. From our perspective the government, at all levels, has become arrogant, abusive and tyrannical and is fair game, especially to those of us with courage, a free mind and an indomitable spirit.

"The trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool." -Stephen King, author
"Power, without honor or trust, is tyranny." -Ron Ewart, national author and speaker

The other night we watched the Crimson Tide movie again with Gene Hackman as Captain Ramsey and Denzel Washington as Executive Officer (XO) Hunter, commanding a nuclear submarine, the Alabama. The Alabama is sent on a mission to destroy a Russian naval and missile base that had been taken over by Russian rebels who were threatening to fire nuclear missiles at the U. S. if the rebel's demands weren't met by the Russian Government. The Alabama received an order from central command to fire their nuclear missiles at the Russian naval base, but while submerged and preparing to launch, it came under attack by a rogue Russian submarine. During the attack a message came in from central command but was cut off mid message. The Alabama ultimately destroyed the Russian submarine, but in the process of the fierce battle, it lost its radio and thus could not confirm the content of the second message.

The crux of the movie was about the dispute between Captain Ramsey and XO Hunter over the decision to fire nuclear missiles and the potential dire consequences, without knowing what was in the second message. The Captain was determined to fire, but the XO was determined to not fire until the 2nd message was received in full. In the end, the radio was fixed, the message came in and central command had rescinded the order to fire the Alabama's nuclear missiles. The Captain was wrong and the XO was proved right, thankfully.

But this time as we watched the movie, it was different somehow. We were suddenly struck by the parallels between the operation of a nuclear submarine and the operation of a Constitutional Republic. A nuclear submarine has virtually more destructive firepower than all the weapons fired in World War II. With 24 nuclear tipped missiles, each having at least 10 nuclear devices in them, a nuclear submarine can rain Hell fire down on targets that will totally obliterate them, along with tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousand lives. That is just one nuclear submarine. The United States has many nuclear submarines.

The United States of America, under the command of the President, controls the firepower of the combined army, navy, air force, marines and coast guard. No nation on earth has this much power in the hands of one man that can pull the "trigger" to save the nation, or pull the "trigger" on an insane whim. The captain of a nuclear submarine and the President of the United States have the same exact awesome responsibility and it is only different in the degree of how much firepower each can unleash. The captain answers to the President. But the President answers to …..?

In theory, a nuclear submarine operates to preserve Democracy, not to practice it. In contrast, and as designed, a Constitutional Republic operates to preserve a Democracy as well, but with a different set of less-rigid instructions. The nuclear submarine operates under the intransigent and fixed Rules of Navy Regulations and a chain of command from which there can be no deviation without serious consequences for the offender. A Constitutional Republic operates under the Supreme Law of the Land, the U. S. Constitution, and the laws that are passed in concert with the Supreme Law by a representative government. Consequences to any violators of the Supreme Law are left up to the people, that is if the people care to hold the violators to account.

On a nuclear submarine, or any other American Navy vessel, the captain is the supreme leader and the supreme law, subject to the Rules of Navy Regulations. In a nuclear submarine, "boys are trained to do a terrible and unthinkable thing, and if that ever occurs the only reassurance they will have that they are doing the right thing will derive from their unqualified belief in the unified chain of command", (from the movie) as delineated in the Rules of Navy Regulations. Each member of the boat's crew (a submarine is a boat, a surface vessel is a ship) must have an undying belief in the capability of the captain to fulfill the duties for which he is charged, in the hopes that in the performance of those duties he will not needlessly sacrifice the crew, or violate the Rules of Navy Regulations. That strong belief finds its foundation in the words immortalized by General Douglas McArthur ….. duty, honor, country.

Exhaustive training hones the captain and the crew to act as one, within the capabilities of the boat, in the fulfillment of the captain's duties. The human weaknesses associated with power and ambition and the uncontrolled emotions of irrationality, anger, or overt compassion can cloud the captain's ability to fulfill those duties and so the crew is taking that risk when sailing with any captain. Nevertheless, the crew can in no way affect, alter, or modify the captain's decisions, for that would be mutiny. The captain has absolute power on the boat and his words and deeds cannot be questioned, unless he is in violation of the Rules of Navy Regulations, which did occur in the Crimson Tide movie. The fact is, it is impossible to effectively prosecute a war by a committee, governed by Robert's Rules of Order, if the goal is to win the war.

So let's analyze the contrast between a submarine crew and the American citizen. Under the U. S. Constitution, the American citizen has considerably more latitude to alter or modify the government of a Constitutional Republic than a ship's crewmember has on any water-born vessel, where the captain has absolute power. In fact, in a Constitutional Republic, the power of the government is derived from the power of the governed, if we are to believe the inviolate words of those that founded this great nation.

In a Constitutional Republic, Americans are supposed to be taught to have trust in their government to do what is necessary and right under the rules of the Supreme Law of the Land, in the direct interest of the preservation of individual liberty and in the direct interest of the preservation of the sovereignty of the nation as a whole. Americans will only have that reassurance that the government is doing the right thing, if they have the unqualified belief and trust that the government will act to preserve, protect and defend our Constitution. Each American must have an undying belief in the capability of the government to fulfill the duties for which government has been charged, in the hopes that those duties will not needlessly sacrifice any one individual, or group of Americans, or will dismantle the foundation of freedom. That strong belief finds its foundation in the meaning of the word, "trust."

If the people do not trust their government to preserve individual liberty, be honest and forthright with the people and be true to their oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, if they cannot trust their government to abide by the rule of law, then the entire system breaks down and we become a nation of the lawless under a lawless government. That condition is a recipe for the declaration of martial law and the path to fascism, or a dictatorship.

When the president of the United States, members of Congress, or any chief executive or members of a legislative, city, county, or state body, willfully lie to the American people to deceive them for political purposes, or ulterior motives, there can be no trust in government, or the rule of law and the system is on its way to breaking down. When law becomes so complex, complicated and undecipherable such that there is no way for the people to reasonably comply with the law, the system HAS broken down. In these trying times of a divided nation over two radically opposing ideologies, America finds itself at the merging of these two conditions. Today, government does lie on purpose for political purposes and ulterior motives to deceive the people, government has become a power unto itself where it does not respect the rule of law, it only respects its rule by fear and intimidation of the people, and finally, the laws have become so complex, complicated and undecipherable that no normal, reasonable and prudent person can comply with them, making virtually every American a lawbreaker in one form or another.

Lying by one person for whatever reason is deceit. Lying by government on purpose for ulterior motives or to increase its power over the masses is racketeering, corruption and quite possibly fascism. As Stephen King stated, "the trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool." If the people are so innocent, naive and uninformed, then they have no defense against a lying and corrupt government, nor do they have any redress against unconstitutional or complicated laws for which there is no way to comply.

But the fact is ladies and gentlemen, we cannot with these words change the mindset of a nation who does not care who leads them, or are collectively oblivious to their leader's existence, or the rules under which they lead. We cannot make people cognizant of reality or convince them that their "innocence and ignorance is the liar's (government) most useful tool." We cannot awaken a nation that does not want to be awakened, or a nation that is perfectly comfortable with its ignorance, apathy and mindless slumber.

You cannot by force or other means, convince an alcoholic to mend his ways if the alcoholic does not fervently want to mend his ways. And thus it stands that one person or a thousand voices cannot by force or other means, convince a nation that it lies on the path to ruin, until that nation as a whole gains the collective mindset that it wants to detour from that path. Even if ten thousand voices shouted freedom from the rooftops, as they are now doing all over America in print, on the Internet and on the air, urging the people to see the "light", it still will not be enough if a high percentage of the masses refuse to be awakened. As just one author with a limited audience, we might as well stand on the top of a mountain and blow into the east wind for all the impact we are having.

Whether a sea ship captain, or the president of the United States, the ability to govern effectively rests solely on the trust of the people over which each must command. Without that trust, without honor in the leaders and in the people, government breaks down and when government breaks down due to lack of trust and honor, so order must breakdown as well. This is what we see in Syria, the Ukraine, the Sudan and Venezuela, or any other country where trust in the government has evaporated. When trust and order break down, what takes its place is disorder, mayhem, brutality, carnage, disease and death. This is the not too distant future of America if it continues down the path it now treads.

The question remains, will that nation once conceived in liberty, gain the necessary collective mindset in time before all trust and honor are gone and disorder, mayhem, brutality, carnage, disease and death sets in, because the liars (government) used the people's innocence and ignorance to enslave them.

But then, as a humble writer with a limited audience, there is no way we can predict what the future holds. The outcome depends solely on whether enough Americans will awaken from their innocence, ignorance, apathy and mindless slumber ….. in time. All we can do is provide truthful information and sound the alarm and we are doing so with our weekly articles and on our two powerful websites HERE and HERE. But is anyone listening?

ARE THE SOLDIERS BRAVE, STUPID, OR FANATICS?

March 4th, 2014 by

http://anationbeguiled.com/?p=8152

By Olddog

I am writing here of military personnel, and in particular, American military personnel. There is a good reason for this discourse, because it is a proven fact that people kill people for reasons they do not always understand or even care about, and if one is a God fearing person, or just a compassionate person, they should.

The German soldiers who were dressed in Polish uniforms, and instructed to kill their fellow Germans in the second world war, may or may not have, been given instructions to follow those orders because it was imperative to conquer Poland for the protection of the homeland, and to get the peoples support for Nation Building. Who Knows! I don’t pretend to know all there is to know about this event, and I’m using it to open the readers mind to something important in today’s political climate. Events like this do happen, (911 and the Bush administration) (Sandy Hook) (and many others) and I find it hard to swallow if we are going to claim we are compassionate human beings.

There are many so called compassionate Americans who would nuke Russia at the drop of hat, and there are also many so called compassionate Americans who would make a fortune if certain people would drop one on America so we could drop many on China, Russia, or various nations in the Middle East.

Getting rich at the expense of human lives being lost is not compassionate, and if the reader believes our government is always correct in their decisions to kill other people, then I fear for your soul, because it is surely not compassionate, or very smart, and you are close to being one of those soldiers who kill on command.

So what is a low ranking new soldier supposed to do? How about a seasoned soldier of high rank?

Let’s consider that the reason one is a soldier is to protect his country at all cost, which includes his/her life, and orders are orders, which must be followed without question. Then what? Is the chain of command so infallible they never make mistakes? I hardly think so, and we as compassionate human beings must be allowed to follow our conscience if we are to avoid being used by people with no conscience. And we cannot do that and remain ignorant. Don’t forget, our so called President is the Commander in Chief of our military, and the one who gave himself the power to kill us, in spite of having no available information on his past.

 

AND THAT, DEAR READER IS THE REAL REASON FOR THIS DISCOURSE.

 

Every human being must accept the responsibility to become informed on the methods being used by the powers that be. Otherwise we will be trapped into committing atrocities we will not be able to live with, like killing people for no good reason. Only self-defense or protection of family, and in some cases property, can justify killing a person.

Even if you just vote a tyrant into a position of power over other people, you are still responsible for their actions, because you could have researched his/her past to see what kind of person they were, (Except for OBUMA) or you could have demanded some kind of acceptable proof of their abilities and purpose.

We cannot go through life without accepting responsibility for our leaders, and if we continue doing so, we are headed for destruction. Look around, and see for yourself, our government has turned into a monster, hell bent on destroying our life with their control over every item we need for survival.

The privatization of all natural resources will subject us to an absolutely miserable life style, with no means of recourse. Is the pleasure of being uninformed worth living in a world of total subjection? Are we so ignorant we will accept tyranny, just so we can avoid a little reading? Do we want to be so desperate we will kill our neighbor for a loaf of bread? Do we give a tyrannical government our support just so we can have an excuse to sit on our ass and watch TV instead of learning how and what they are doing behind our backs; just because they say they represent America? Just by being alive we should have enough sense to see they are stealing our future, as well as our present way of life.

So, what are our options?

There are over 1,600 articles on my two sites alone http://anationbeguiled.com and http://anationbeguiled.wordpress.com , plus the internet is running over with Patriot sites, for now! These articles have been chosen because they contribute to understanding what is going on in America and the world that contributes to the destruction of freedom and Constitutional Governance. And, the number one reason these things are happening is the appalling ignorance and lack of interest in our citizens. Folks, you simply cannot remain uninformed and free. It’s either knowledge and freedom, or ignorance and no freedom!

May I humbly suggest you begin a reading program of as many dissident authors as you can find, and empty your mind of all loyalty to any of the existing political parties in America. You cannot stand in the river and get dry. We must create an informed society on the methods the International Investment Banking Cartel is using to subjugate the entire planet we live and depend on. Stop voting and start learning why. Information is to your mind, like Viagra is to your?

If you want it to work right you have to give it some nourishment.

Every minute you watch television is like an open wound bleeding your life away.

It’s true that ignorant people cannot cure a big problem, and it’s also true that an informed society can cure any problem. The people who formed our government never intended it to be like it has become, and the way it failed is because the people refused to do their part. Your part Mr. and Mrs. America is to learn why adhering to a particular set of principles is the only way we can deal with an ever expanding group of politicians who act as if they can do anything with our country they find profitable. There are rules in every society; otherwise we would be an anarchic pot of hobo soup, willing to try anything that tickles our fancy. A Democracy simply means 51% of the people can demand how the 49% live, and if you are stupid enough to want that, let me be the first to hold and protect your money. Let me be the first to keep your wife warm on cold nights while you are away. The majority is a non elected tyrant!

Laws must be made in conformance with an existing set of principles, or we have no future security in anything. What ever sounds good at the moment is no substitute for intelligent problem solving. Or Nation Building, which by the way, we were not intended to be. The founders saw the advantage in having some diversity in governance and provided it by setting up the States as limited but free to adjust to particular circumstances, and the federal Government confined to only those explicit areas elucidated in the Constitution, and further confined by the Bill of Rights which is about to die on the vine of tyranny.

Getting back to the soldiers, and their commanders demanding absolute obedience regardless of sane treatment of the people. How will we deal with a soldier who has been instructed to kill us for some perceived wrong we may or may not have done. They are  not supposed to be law-men anyway. That’s yet another protection we have lost, due to diversity in governance.

There is also the nationwide problem of local police officers becoming absolute brutes and getting away with it, to the point of publically bragging about their freedom to do what ever they liked, with no fear of retribution. As a matter of fact they can now get paid leave for brutalizing some citizen, and they openly confess it’s how they get extra paid time off. Go home with pay and behave for a week until this cools down, is how they are admonished. This is AMERICA???!

Are you aware that the old practice of extortion has arisen, and police officers are demanding money if you want to remain healthy and in business? If the thugs try it they are murdered with impunity, as it’s now the officers domain.

Any one who is still convinced that America is the land of the free and the home of the brave is mentally retarded. Go to http://anationbeguiled.wordpress.com and read Mr. Whiteheads article, Free Speech RIP A Relic of the American Past!

How much will you take America, before you stand up and fight back?

David Stockman: 500 Trillion Dollar Derivative Bomb Threatens The World !

  • Stockman – $500 Trillion Derivative Bomb Threatens The World! 
    by www.kingworldnews.com 
    Today David Stockman warned King World News that a terrifying $500 trillion derivative bomb threatens the entire world.  He also went on to caution about a second danger facing the world.  KWN takes Stockman’s warnings very seriously because he is the man former President Reagan called on in 1981, during that crisis, to become Director of the Office of Management and Budget and help save the United States from collapse.  Below is what Stockman had to say in part II of a series of powerful interviews that will be released today.
    -
    Stockman:  “I think the great ticking time bomb is interest rate swaps.  The last time I checked they were in the range of $500 trillion.  Who knows what’s lurking underneath the surface there?….
    ….
    Stockman:  “The single greatest danger is that the game the central banks are playing today will come to an abrupt and destructive end.  That’s the danger because the whole system is now running off the short-run maneuvers, liquidity, and guidance that the central banks are injecting into the market every day.  The danger is that one of these days the whole system will fail because it is unnatural and artificial, and when that happens it’s going to be a pretty difficult (and chaotic) time.” read more!

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Just think a moment, the International Investment Bankers have been sucking our country dry for more years than anyone on earth has lived. Does that make sense folks? when will the people understand they simply cannot have a life of total leisure, we must spend time learning what is going on in our government and discuss what to do about it. By now, the entire world could have financial security if it were not for these blood suckers. Please for the sake of your children and Grand children get off your ass and learn. If I can find and learn what is wrong with the world, there is no excuse for anyone to remain ignorant. There is a way to fix the world. KILL THE BANKERS, and confiscate their wealth! Does that offend you? You don’t seem to get upset when the bankers have millions killed in their wars, while you work in their war factories though, do you? Wake the hell up America!

FISA, the NSA, and America’s Secret Court System

February 24th, 2014 by

http://us1.campaign-archive1.com/?u=bf16b152ccc444bdbbcc229e4&id=ea3c2901a7&e=ba977b782f

By Ben O'Neill on February 22, 2014

[This article is part of a series. See Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the US Courts.]

We begin our analysis of the legal machinations of the NSA by looking at the secret court system which supposedly practices judicial oversight over the agency. This Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA Court[1] or FISC) was created in 1978 as a result of recommendations of the Church Committee, composed after a series of intelligence scandals in the 1970s.[2] The court was purportedly created as an additional safeguard against unlawful activity by US intelligence agencies, which had been found to have committed various kinds of unlawful surveillance activities.

The goal of the FISA court, as originally conceived, was to place judicial oversight on the surveillance activities of the NSA, by requiring the agency to obtain warrants from the court before intercepting communications. This was to place the NSA under the same kind of legal constraints as regular police, with requirements for evidence being put before a court in order to obtain a warrant for search. However, unlike the court system for regular police warrants, the judicial system for the NSA is far more secretive. In order to give judicial scrutiny to preserve the secrecy of NSA activities, the FISA court meets in secret with only government representatives present at its proceedings. The hearings are closed to the public and the rulings of the judges are classified, and rarely released after the fact. (Some rulings have been partly declassified, but are still heavily redacted.) The judges in the FISA court hear applications from a representative of the NSA, and ask questions, allowing the agency to amend their applications to meet any shortcomings. Adversarial argument from other parties is absent, since there are no other parties at the hearing.

Some of this is similar to the operation of public courts for regular police warrants, but there is a great deal more secrecy, and a great deal more power granted to the government. One distinction between the FISA Court, and regular public courts issuing warrants for police searches, is the type of warrant system that is practiced under the FISA Court. For police searches it is generally the case that the police will apply for a warrant to surveil a particular person, or a small group or people, and give some evidence of “probable cause” for a search, i.e., the police must convince the court that there is reasonable suspicion for surveillance on a case-by-case basis. Under the FISA Court the warrants for the NSA are much wider in scope. Many of the warrants authorize the collection of communications data on a particular phone carrier, capturing the communications of millions of people over sustained periods of time. Other warrants are “procedure-based” warrants which authorize a proposed data-collection process, subject to various “minimization procedures” designed to confine the querying of data. These generally allow mass data-collection on a population, with application of the minimization procedures left to the NSA.

As with other law enforcement authorities, the record of the NSA in obtaining warrants from the FISA court is imposing. In the 33,949 applications that were resolved from 1979-2012, only 11 were rejected (0.0324%).[3] (The rejection rate for other wiretap applications in state and federal courts is similarly low.[4]) Though originally designed merely to issue secret warrants for surveillance, the powers of the FISA Court have expanded over time, with a large expansion of power occurring in 2008, when the Bush administration retroactively immunized any “electronic communication service provider” from any liability for their complicity in unlawful NSA surveillance.[5]

In order to deal with a large number of warrant applications, the powers of the FISA Court have expanded to the point that it has undertaken quasi-constitutional proceedings, allegedly validating the surveillance programs as being within the constitutional powers of the US government. Even in this latter function, the hearings have been closed to the public and have been conducted with only the government giving arguments to the court. Hence, the government has had free rein to be the only party represented at hearings which have purported to determine its own legal powers under the US Constitution. For this reason, one commentator has noted that, “[i]n truth, the FISC has basically become a parallel Supreme Court, but one which operates in almost total secrecy.”[6]

The effect of this secret court system has been to allow the NSA to build up 34 years of judicial precedents in favor of its expansive powers, with a large body of purported constitutional findings validating its own power. All of this has been conducted behind closed doors, without the inconvenience of opposing argument from other parties. Perhaps unsurprisingly, this secret court system has opened up opportunities for judicial capture for the NSA. As noted by legal scholar Elizabeth Goitein, “[l]ike any other group that meets in secret behind closed doors with only one constituency appearing before them, they’re subject to capture and bias.”[7]

For former FISA court judge James Robertson, these remarks have rung true to such an extent that he has publicly complained about the ex parte nature of the FISA court proceedings.[8] According to this former member of the court, “[w]hat FISA does is not adjudication, but approval. This works just fine when it deals with individual applications for warrants, but the 2008 amendment has turned the FISA court into an administrative agency making rules for others to follow.”[9]

To the extent that judicial capture has been resisted by the court, it has nonetheless functioned as a compliant entity to the NSA, through the fact that any criticisms against the unlawful actions of the NSA have been kept secret, and have been without any serious legal consequence to the agency. When the Chief Judge of the FISA court was alerted to a mass of systematic misrepresentations to the court by the NSA, the consequence was a “stern rebuke” in a classified memorandum that was not available to the public until years later.[10] (In fact, the opinion was only declassified due to public pressure as a result of the Snowden leaks. If not for these leaks it is likely that the opinion would still remain classified today.) In March 2009, following breaches of the courts orders, the Chief Judge found that the testimony of General Keith Alexander setting out the NSA interpretation of the court’s orders “strained credulity” by interpreting a part of the orders as effectively being optional.[11] He also found that “[t]he minimization procedures proposed by the government in each successive application and approved and adopted as binding by the orders of the [FISA Court] have been so frequently and systematically violated that it can fairly be said that this critical element of the overall [metadata] regime has never functioned effectively.”[12] Despite lacking confidence that the NSA would comply with future orders, the Chief Judge allowed the mass collection of metadata to continue, and allowed the government to continue to apply for access to this data on a case-by-case basis, or for imminent threats, until such time as they completed a review of their procedures. The NSA completed their review and the regular operation of the mass-surveillance program was restored shortly afterward.

Some commentators have taken this judicial rebuke by the FISA court as proof of the “toughness” of the court on the NSA, in fact, it is proof of their subservience to the agency. Despite finding that there had been systematic misrepresentations to the court by the NSA, no action was taken against official who had given false statements to the court. There was no disciplinary action of any kind against personnel of the agency, and the “rebuke” of the court remained a private classified document, only available to the agency being criticized. NSA officials who had systematically misled the court were free to read this rebuke knowing that no consequence would follow from it, since no member of the public could read about their actions. When the matter was later exposed to the public (as a result of the Snowden leaks) the Chief Judge complained that his court “… is forced to rely upon the accuracy of the information that is provided to the Court.”[13] The surveillance programs of the NSA continued, with ongoing approval by the court, after a short period of technical review conducted by the NSA. Such “toughness” as this is what passes for “checks and balances” within the system of secret courts.

The dubious nature of the FISA court is well-understood within the wider judicial system, a fact which was clear in the Klayman preliminary judgment. The stark distinction between the secretive FISA court and the public court system was recognized by Judge Leon when he observed that, “… no court has ever recognized a special need sufficient to justify continuous, daily searches of virtually every American citizen without any particularized suspicion. In effect, the government urges me to be the first non-FISC judge to sanction such a dragnet.”[14] It is notable here that Judge Leon felt that it was significant that he was the first non-FISC judge to consider the matter, a tacit recognition that the judgments of the FISC cannot be regarded as true constitutional scrutiny.

Legal scholar Randy Barnett has argued that surveillance programs by a secret court violates the requirement for “due process of law.” According to Barnett, “[s]ecret judicial proceedings adjudicating the rights of private parties, without any ability to participate or even read the legal opinions of the judges, is the antithesis of the due process of law.”[15] Though we refer to such an institution as a “court” system in the positive-law sense, in truth, such a “court” lacks many of the characteristics of a proper court. It is in fact more akin to bodies such as the English Star Chamber, which conducted judicial hearings in secret, issuing secret rulings affecting parties who were not represented in its hearings.

Convicted Criminals Serve as Freedom Fighters in Syria

 Saudi Pakistani and Iraqi Prison Inmates Replenish Al Qaeda Ranks

By Prof Michel Chossudovsky

Several hundred convicted criminals who escaped from carefully guarded prisons in Iraq have recently joined the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) as well as the Al Qaeda affiliated rebel force, Jabhat Al Nusra.

According to the NYT: “the prison breaks also reflect the surging demand for experienced fighters which led to a concerted effort by militant groups, particularly the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, to seek them in the one place where they were held en masse — Iraq’s prison cells.” (Tim Arango  and Eric Schmitt, 

Escaped Inmates From Iraq Fuel Syrian Insurgency, NYT, February 12, 2014):

“American officials estimate, a few hundred of the escapees have joined the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, several in senior leadership roles.”

Acknowledged by the NYT, the prison breakouts are part of the recruitment of jihadists to serve in the Syrian insurgency. What is not mentioned, however, is that the recruitment of mercenaries is  coordinated by NATO, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar with the support of the Obama administration. Moreover, known and documented, most Al Qaeda affiliated forces are covertly supported by Western intelligence including the CIA, Mossad and Britain’s MI6.

The prison breaks in Iraq are part of a coordinated endeavor entitled  “Operation Breaking the Walls,” established in July 2012 by the ISIS. Acknowledged by an American counterterrorism official quoted by the NYT,

 “The influx of these terrorists, who collectively have decades of battlefield experience, probably has strengthened the group and deepened its leadership bench.”

US Occupation forces and military personnel in the prisons turned a blind eye to the breakouts.

Abu Aisha was originally arrested by the Americans and then released from Camp Bucca, the infamous American prison in southern Iraq, in 2008. He was rearrested by the Iraqis in 2010.

“Finally, they put me in Abu Ghraib, and I again met some of the leaders and fighters I knew, including princes from Al Qaeda — Iraqis, Arabs and other nationalities,” he said. “Most of them had been at Bucca as well.”

One night last summer, as Abu Aisha sat in his cell waiting, as he did each day, for his date with the executioner, explosions and gunfire erupted and a familiar prison guard opened the doors to his cell and told him to leave immediately. With hundreds of others, Abu Aisha ran through the prison’s corridors until he escaped through a hole that had been blasted through a wall. He hopped into a waiting Kia truck that took him to freedom — and back to the battlefield.

Abu Aisha said leaders of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria gave him a choice: leave and fight with them in Syria, or stay and fight in Iraq. (NYT, op cit, emphasis added)

Coordinated Program: Saudi Arabia

The recent prison breakouts have the hallmarks of a carefully planned covert operation requiring the complicity of the US military and Iraqi prison personnel.

The prison breakouts are not limited to Iraq. Planned prison escapes to join the jihadist insurgency have occurred simultaneously in several countries, indicating the existence of a coordinated recruitment program.

Saudi Arabia –which has played a central role in channeling weapons (including anti-aircraft missiles) to the jihadists on behalf of Washington– has been actively involved in the recruitment of mercenaries from the kingdom’s prisons.

In Saudi Arabia, however, there were no breakouts: criminals serving jail sentences were released from the kingdom’s prisons on condition they join the Syrian jihad.

A top secret memo sent by the Ministry of Interior in Saudi Arabia “reveals the Saudi Kingdomsent death-row inmates, sentenced to execution by decapitation, to Syria to fight Jihad against the Syrian government in exchange for commuting their sentences.”

According to the April 17, 2012 memo, Saudi Arabia recruited some 1200 inmates, “offering them a full pardon and a monthly salary for their families, who were to remain in the Kingdom, in exchange for “…training for the sake of sending to the Jihad in Syria.”

Among those released from prison and recruited in Saudi Arabia were inmates from Yemen, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Jordan, Somalia, Afghanistan, Egypt, Pakistan, Iraq, and Kuwait.

Saudi Prison

From “Convicted Criminal” to “Freedom Fighter”

The Western military alliance is not only supporting and financing a terrorist insurgency, supplying it with advanced weapons systems, it is also complicit in the recruitment of convicted criminals.

What is at stake is the coordination of several consecutive stages involving Prison escapes/releasesRecruitment of Mercenaries, the Training of “Freedom Fighters” and the Procurement and Delivery of Weapons to the insurgency:

1.   Release and/or escape of convicted criminals and fighters from prisons;

2.   Recruitment of the released/escaped inmates into Syria rebel formations;

3.   Paramilitary training  of the released/escaped prisoners, where applicable, e.g. in Saudi and Qatari training programs including religious indoctrination;

4.   Dispatching the newly trained jihadist rebels to the war theater. The former prison inmates are sent to Syria to join the insurgency. They are integrated  as mercenaries into one of the Al Qaeda affiliated forces.

5.   The military equipping of the newly trained mercenaries (e.g. Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar) and the procurement and delivery of military hardware to the insurgency on behalf of the US Administration which is funding the inflow of  weapons.

The Insurgency’s Recruitment of Prison Inmates: Part of an Ongoing Process

Prison breaks occurred in Summer 2013 in Libya and Pakistan and Iraq in what appeared to be a carefully coordinated program. Those reported by the NYT are  a continuation of  an earlier project of prison breakouts.

On July 23, 2013, Abu Ghraib and Taji prisons were broken into in a carefully waged operation, leading to the escape of  500-1000 inmates, most of whom were recruited into the ranks of ISIS:

The attacks were allegedly carried out after months of preparations on behalf of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, which is a merger between Al-Qaeda’s affiliates in Syria and Iraq.

Between 500 to 1,000 prisoners have escaped as a result of the attack, “most of them were convicted senior members of Al-Qaeda and had received death sentences,” said Hakim Zamili, a senior member of the security and defense committee in parliament.

Suicide bombers drove cars with explosives into the gates of the prison on the outskirts of Baghdad on Sunday night, while gunmen attacked guards with mortar fire as well as rocket propelled grenades. (Russia Today, July 2013)

On Saturday, July 26, at a maximum security prison in Benghazi, Libya, an almost identical prison break to the one that happened in Iraq occurred:

There were riots within the prison, with fires set. Suddenly gunmen flocked upon the prison and opened fire. About 1,200 of Libya’s most deadly inmates escaped.  Peregrino Brimah, Obama’s Syria Endgame:

New Al Qaeda “Recruits” Dispatched to Syria, Global Research, September 4,  2013, emphasis added)

And midnight, July 29-30:

Taliban gunmen with rocket launchers and suicide bombers, wearing police uniforms attacked the largest jail in Dera Ismail Khan, in a northern Pakistani province, releasing over 300 inmates. They came well coordinated, with rocket-propelled grenades and freed top militants–some of the Taliban’s most deadly men. They used loud speakers to announce the names of the men they needed. According to an official

(Reuters), only 70 of the 200 guards on duty were at work that fateful night, suggesting higher level security-government involvement.(Ibid, emphasis added)

Syrians across the Country Say No to Terrorism and Foreign InterferenceFreedom Fighters

We invite GR readers to review the video and images below and make up their own mind as to what is happening in Syria.

There is a mass movement across the country against foreign interference. This mass movement is not being reported by the Western media.

The Syrian population does not support the “freedom fighters” recruited and trained in Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey.

What is at stake is the sovereignty and survival of a country with a longstanding history. This movement also includes people who are opposed to the Syrian government.

The Syrian people are fully aware that Washington is supporting Al Qaeda. They know that this is a US sponsored insurgency and that the rebels who are killing civilians are mercenaries.

They are fully aware that this is a war of aggression which is intent upon destroying their country.

Let us spread this message far and wide.

Why is the Obama Administration Putting Government Monitors in Newsrooms?

February 20th, 2014 by

http://aclj.org/free-speech-2/why-is-obama-administration-putting-government-monitors-in-newsrooms

 

2-20-2014 9-03-56 AM

By  Matthew Clark
 

The Obama Administration’s Federal Communication Commission (FCC) is poised to place government monitors in newsrooms across the country in an absurdly draconian attempt to intimidate and control the media.

Before you dismiss this assertion as utterly preposterous (we all know how that turned out when the Tea Party complained that it was being targeted by the IRS), this bombshell of an accusation comes from an actual FCC Commissioner.

FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai reveals a brand new Obama Administration program that he fears could be used in “pressuring media organizations into covering certain stories.”

As Commissioner Pai explains in the Wall Street Journal:

Last May the FCC proposed an initiative to thrust the federal government into newsrooms across the country. With its "Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs," or CIN, the agency plans to send researchers to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run. A field test in Columbia, S.C., is scheduled to begin this spring.

The purpose of the CIN, according to the FCC, is to ferret out information from television and radio broadcasters about "the process by which stories are selected" and how often stations cover "critical information needs," along with "perceived station bias" and "perceived responsiveness to underserved populations."

In fact, the FCC is now expanding the bounds of regulatory powers to include newspapers, which it has absolutely no authority over, in its new government monitoring program.

The FCC has apparently already selected eight categories of “critical information” “that it believes local newscasters should cover.”

That’s right, the Obama Administration has developed a formula of what it believes the free press should cover, and it is going to send government monitors into newsrooms across America to stand over the shoulders of the press as they make editorial decisions.

This poses a monumental danger to constitutionally protected free speech and freedom of the press.

Every major repressive regime of the modern era has begun with an attempt to control and intimidate the press.

As Thomas Jefferson so eloquently said, "our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost."

The federal government has absolutely no business determining what stories should and should not be run, what is critical for the American public and what is not, whether it perceives a bias, and whose interests are and are not being served by the free press.

It’s an unconscionable assault on our free society.

Imagine a government monitor telling Fox News it needed to cover stories in the same way as MSNBC or Al Jazeera.  Imagine an Obama Administration official walking in to the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal and telling it that the American public would be better served if it is stopped reporting on the IRS scandal or maybe that reporting on ObamaCare “glitches” is driving down enrollment.

It’s hard to imagine anything more brazenly Orwellian than government monitors in newsrooms.

Is it any wonder that the U.S. now ranks 46th in the world for freedom of the press?  Reporters Without Boarders called America’s precipitous drop of 13 places in its recent global rankings “one of the most significant declines” in freedom of the press in the world.

Freedom of the press is proudly extolled in the First Amendment, yet our nation now barely makes the top fifty for media freedom.

We cannot allow the unfathomable encroachment on our free speech and freedom of the press to continue.

We’ve seen, and defeated, this kind of attempt to squelch free speech before in the likes of the Fairness Doctrine and the Grassroots Lobbying Bill (incidentally one of my first projects at the ACLJ).  Each one of these euphemistically named government programs is nothing more than an underhanded attempt to circumvent the Constitution and limit free speech – speech that the government finds inconvenient.  They’re equally unconstitutional, and they each must be defeated.

Join the ACLJ as we take a stand.  Sign the ACLJ’s Petition to Stop the Obama FCC’s Free Speech Monitors.

God Given Freedoms

      By Mary E Webster

 How do I explain to someone who believes in big government and we are “citizens of the world,” that most of our technological and health advancements, our freedom to work at a job of our choice—or not work, if we don’t want to—and even sit in the church of our choice on Sunday morning is protected by the United States Constitution?

As readers of my essays know, freedom and liberty do not come from the Constitution. They come from God.  But God also gave us free will, which means that some type of government is necessary.

"If men were angels, no government would be necessary." #51[4]*

We, as citizens of our country, state, county, city, community, give up a few of our rights and freedoms to give power to our governments.

“Government is necessary. The people must cede some of their natural rights to the government to give it some powers.” #2 [2]*

Rather than give us freedoms, the U.S. Constitution takes the bare minimum of freedoms away from citizens, just enough to keep us safe.  Before the ratification of the U.S. Constitution, people were "given" their freedoms by government rulers.  That is why a "bill of rights" was such a revolutionary agreement between the ruler and citizens.

The Old World doctrine said that people were made to serve kings, not kings to serve the people. . ." #45[2]

"Bills of rights are agreements between kings and their subjects.  They reserve to citizens the rights not surrendered to the king.

"The Magna Charta is an example.  Barons with swords in their hands made King John sign.  Succeeding princes confirmed the Magna Charta.  The Petition of Right agreed to by Charles the First is an example.  So is the Declaration of Rights presented to the Prince of Orange in 1688.  Parliament then made it the 'Bill of Rights'.

"The proposed Constitution is founded on the power of the people.  The people's representatives will execute it.  Therefore, a bill of rights doesn't belong in the Constitution.  The people surrender nothing.  And they keep everything.  Specific reservations are not needed." #84[8]

However, we can lose our freedoms. We only have to look at the 20th century to see how millions of people lost their freedoms, their property, and even their lives because of unrestrained government. In fact, there were more Christian martyrs in the 20th century than in all previous 1,900 years combined.

What are we to do if we notice the United States passing laws that take away our basic freedoms and liberty?

If the federal government overreaches its authority and uses its power tyrannically, the people, who created it, must go to the Constitution. They must correct the injury done to the Constitution. To determine if a law is Constitutional, we must look at whether the law is based on Constitutional powers…” #33[6]

This is the core of the questions I had when I picked up the Federalist Papers in 1994:  "To determine if a law is Constitutional, we must look at whether the law is based on Constitutional powers…”   And so that other people can find the answer more quickly than I did, I put together my favorite book: The United States Constitution: Annotated with The Federalist Papers in Modern English.

It was bad enough when society accepted the restrictions on public preaching, but when an entire Nation accepts a restriction on GOD, who made everything that exist, and hence, has a justified claim of ownership on everything that exist, you can guess what happens next.

HE GETS MAD!

Then He withdraws His protection, and things get ugly. If you are one of the fools who rejects GOD’s existence, then you are stupid enough to think governments will protect you, and they give you a bill of right’s to prove it. Guess what, they can also take them away. SO, if you claim there is No GOD, then you have no reason to complain when the government takes back what it gave you. Be careful who you worship! No one is going to take way what GOD gave me. Will you protect your gift of freedom from GOD, or will you let the government claim it? I suggest you buy the book, and read it.
