You are the resistance

Congress

World domination under the guise of national security

A military operation gone bad in the Philippines left 44 police officers, 18 members of the Islamic community and numerous civilians dead. The culprit? The United States government in collusion with the highly unpopular president of the Philippines, Benigno Aquino III.

Countries that are a priority for intervention under Obama's new plan

Countries that are a priority for intervention under Obama’s new plan

Apparently, the U.S. has decided that it has the right to take its false war on terror anywhere in the world. There is no judge or jury, just killings of “suspects.” Well, the congress in the Philippines and its people are outraged as many have raised questions about the U.S. role in the operation, in a country with a long history of U.S. military domination—and grassroots resistance. The U.S. has denied any direct involvement in the operation.

The failed operation took place in January of this year in the Mamasapano municipality in the southern Philippines and was aimed at arresting two alleged terror suspects with U.S. bounties on their heads. One of the suspects, Zulkifli bin Hir, was killed, but at a high price in innocent lives.

The people in the Philippines are demanding the ouster of their president and U.S. meddling in their government's activities.

The people in the Philippines are demanding the ouster of their president and that the U.S. stop meddling in their country’s affairs.

Contradicting prior U.S. claims, a Philippine government investigation released Tuesday in Manila suggests that the U.S. secretly had a hand in a failed commando raid in that country that resulted in a bloodbath and set in motion an ongoing political scandal.

This act of interference in matters of sovereignty is consistent with Obama’s previous request to Congress to authorize a three year-period of no geographic limitations on the war on terror ( its called Authorization for Use of Military Force or AUMF). If passed we become like Nazi Germany, only global in reach. It is literally another blank check for military conflict, worldwide.

Philippines ObamaA Philippines news outlet listed the casualties and demanded the government provide financial support for the grieving families for the rest of their lives.

Endless war?

Afghanistan, Syria, wherever Isis goes,Obama goes. Photo illustration: DonkeyHotey / Flickr via Creative Commons

Afghanistan, Syria, wherever Isis goes Obama goes. Photo illustration: DonkeyHotey / Flickr via Creative Commons

President Obama has sent Congress a formal request to authorize military force against the Islamic Caliphate six months after the U.S. began bombing Iraq and Syria in an attempt to push back the advances of the so-called terrorist group, ISIS.

That’s like asking the principal’s permission to fight an ethnically different kid in the schoolyard but the fight actually took place yesterday and you didn’t do very good so now you are asking the school administration for help to make sure you don’t lose the fight tomorrow or the next day. That would be embarrassing since you are suppose to be unbeatable, at least that what you tell your friends. No matter that the U.S. funds ISIS through back channels which means this whole thing is an elaborate hoax to create an atmosphere of fear and panic thus making it easier for you to sell weapons and security systems to other nations (like computer systems with “back doors” to facilitate surveillance), not to mention the taking of our personal liberties, one by one, starting with gun control.

Don’t believe it? Watch me prove it in a subsequent post.

The resolution Obama submitted to Congress imposes a three-year limit on U.S. operations. (But when have we ever left a country we have invaded? Besides Obama is a compulsive liar.)

The proposal also requests the following:

  • No geographic constraints on military actions.
  • Opens the door for ground combat operations in limited circumstances.
  • Covers military action against the Islamic State as well as “individuals and organizations fighting for, on behalf of, or alongside [ISIS] or any closely-related successor entity in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners.

QueenSnowWhiteSome brown shirts might see this as Obama seeking to include Congress in the decision making process, but like the witch that gave Snow White the poisoned apple, there was something in that offering that would undoubtedly help the evil queen get what she really wanted.

Unlimited geographic constraints? Hum, let me see, what exactly does that mean? Well, that essentially means if Obama thinks ISIS or its “closely related successor” is operating in Ferguson MO, in Brazil, in the Congo or the North Pole, he can just send in U.S. troops. (Must be the limited circumstances clause.) And what does all this talk of successor entities, individuals and organizations fighting for, in behalf or along side ISIS really, really mean? In my view it translates into endless war against an enemy we created. Defense contractors and senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham must also be really happy now.

Now boys and girls, do not complain to your elected representatives as they will not listen to you.  They are too busy listening to the corporate reps (especially weapons manufacturers) that give them large contributions and arrange for perks all year long. Do not protest or write a letter to the editor, as you will only be added to a list of dissenters and be the first to enter a concentration camp near your home after martial law is declared. As a matter of fact, do not even think about it at all, as you have much bigger fish to fry, like betting on the next NFL game or buying that bigger screen TV. Oh ya, you need to get a new smart phone because the one you have is getting dumber, I mean out of date, and you need to look really cool in Starbucks pretending you are buying or selling. Let me see, what else?

Full torture report may never see the light of day: courage and truth is missing in Washington D.C.

Senator Mark Udall, outgoing senator from Colorado

Senator Mark Udall, outgoing senator from Colorado

Do you think an outgoing Democratic senator, who has nothing to lose, would have the courage to place into the Congressional record, the full senate report on torture which was heavily redacted by the CIA? The senator facing that dilemma is Senator Mark Udall, who lost his seat to a Republican opponent in the Republican sweep of the Senate last November.

John Brennan, CIA Director and Senator Dianne Feinstein who oversees the CIA and other Intelligence agencies.

John Brennan, CIA Director and Senator Dianne Feinstein who oversees the CIA and other Intelligence agencies.

Senator Dianne Feinstein, Chairman of the Select Senate Intelligence Committee released an executive summary of the damning report earlier this month, which even though heavily redacted (blacked out) shows treatment so inhumane it boggles the mind. Cattle being led to slaughter are treated better than the prisoners that were interrogated by the CIA.

There is legal precedent for a senator to “enter into the record” sensitive classified documents that political administrations or the opposing party do not want made public. Senator Mark Udall has until January 3, 2015 to make history by telling the truth about how this country treats prisoners of war.

Call Senator Udall at 202-224-5941 or 202-224-6471 and urge him to enter into the Congressional Record all the atrocities committed by Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld. You can also comment via his website at http://www.markudall.senate.gov/?p=contact_us

Obama is confident that individual congressmen will not go against his orders less they suffer from a loss of political capital and retribution . Senator Udall needs your help in bucking this institutional intimidation. He can only do it if the American people support disclosure and transparency. Call him, write him, email him, only have one week left.

Below is a video of Amy Goodman of Democracy Now interviewing Mike Gravel who is pleading with Senator Udall to reveal the entire torture report, much like he did in 1971 when then-Alaska Senator Mike Gravel entered more than 4,000 pages of the 7,000-page Pentagon Papers into the Senate record, insisting the public had a right to know the truth behind the Vietnam War.

This kind of political courage always reminds me of Jimmy Stewart in the old movie classic, “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.” A trailer is embedded below.

Marine 1st Lt., Ron McLean, DIA

Marine 1st Lt., Ron McLean, DIA

Incidentally, I served with Jimmy’s Stewart’s adopted son, Marine 1st Lt. Ron McLean, in Vietnam. We were assigned to the 3rd Recon Battalion which patrolled in and around the DMZ or Demilitarized Zone between North and South Vietnam. According to one of his men, he had a premonition he would not return. I recall he was quiet, unassuming and not afraid to take leadership. He died on June 6, 1969, after his recon patrol was ambushed, followed by a 12- hour fire fight. Semper Fi, Marine.


America is losing its patience with wanabe emperor dictator king Obama

Here is an interesting video of Obama as he addresses a crowd in Las Vegas after his announcement of amnesty for Latinos here and abroad. At one point, the whole audience seems to be heckling him.

Understand that the anger is not against Latinos but Obama’s disregard of the Constitution by issuing Executive Orders in areas clearly within the purview of Congress. Laws are passed by the legislative and executive branches of government, the result of careful deliberation, not by arrogant presidents alone.


Another example of Obama’s lies: Gruber, Rattner and Obamacare

You may or may not have heard about the recent controversy surrounding Obamacare.

Jonathan Gruber

Jonathan Gruber, MIT economist

Jonathan Gruber, an MIT economics professor who, according to many including Democractic political leaders Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, had a major role in designing Obamacare, now states that Obama’s health care bill never would have passed if the public had known the truth, and further, the America voters are “stupid” for having believed Obama. Pelosi now claims she doesn’t know who he is even thought there is video of her praising Grubers contributions to the bill’s development.

Obama, has also tried to distance himself from Gruber saying he was never on his staff or worked on the bill although here again, there is earlier video of his mentioning Gruber as a contributor, whose ideas were valuable and from which Obama borrowed heavily.

So what do we have here?

Well, it seems Gruber is on record via several videos and interviews claiming that if the administration, specifically Obama, had told the truth about the Obamacare provisions (regarding the level of service and ultimate costs which are designed to increase over time) it never would have passed in Congress. It seems both the public and Congress was lied to by Obama.

Gruber is no doubt an excellent economist and he does teach at MIT one of the most prestigious universities in the world, but he is also an egotistic loud mouth as the Obama Administration is finding out. Of course, that makes it easier for the Republicans to repeal Obamacare, if that is what they intend to do.

Steve Rattner

Steve Rattner

After the Obama administration tried to say that Gruber’s input into the bill was “limited,” out comes a former Obama administration advisor who contradicts Obama’s claims of Gruber’s involvement, Steve Rattner (he was considered Obama’a “Car Czar” during the bailout of GM), who says that Gruber was the “guru” of Obamacare and was being praised by many as key to the design of Obamacare under the direct supervision of Obama himself. According to Rattner, Gruber was paid hundreds of thousands to draft the bill, although other estimates put it in the millions. Oh, oh, it looks like Obama was caught with his pants down.

Ignoring the American public’s rejection of his policies in this latest midterm election Obama continues with his war-oriented and open borders agenda

Here’s the latest from the “Barry” Wheel of Fortune. “Come on Down!”

Obama seeks $6 billion from Congress to fight Ebola in Africa, and improve screening of arrivals from West Africa in the United States

JS Note: This is no where near the public demand for restricting travel from West African countries.

Days after election, Obama sends another 1,500 troops to Iraq to battle ISIS, doubling the size of the U.S presence there, but insists they won’t engage in combat – and asks Congress for $5.6 BILLION in war funding

JS Note: Again, who benefits from constant wars, internal conflict and incursions into basically civil differences? The military hawks in Washington DC and their thousands of subcontractors who have more lobbyists in Washingtom than there are congressmen.

Where is all this money coming from?

Well dear reader, I’ll tell you. It’ coming from you, the American taxpayer, who cannot pay your bills because the minimum wage is not enough, who cannot get a tax break because only big corporate leaders get tax breaks, you who continue to consume to the point of ridiculousness for items you do not need, and you who have not the guts to kick these crooks out of office. Become an Independent and vote for the Candidate not the Party.

All of this is within the last 24 hours.

I feel better already.


Former U.S. embassy official admits he was routinely ordered to approve applications for visas by suspect terrorists and those on no fly lists

A U.S. embassy official confirms that he was routinely ordered to approve applications for visas by suspect terrorists over his objections that these individuals were not qualified under U.S. regulations.

According to Michael Springman, in charge of issuing visas in the Jeddah U.S. consulate, “In Saudi Arabia I was repeatedly ordered by high level State Department officials to issue visas to unqualified applicants. These were, essentially, people who had no ties either to Saudi Arabia or to their own country. I complained bitterly at the time there. I returned to the US, I complained to the State Department here, to the General Accounting Office, to the Bureau of Diplomatic Security and to the Inspector General’s office. I was met with silence.”

Months before the September 11 attacks Shayna Steinger, another consular official, issued 12 visas to the alleged hijackers at the consulate in Jeddah, Arabia. A State Department memo states Steinger issued 11 visas to the hijackers, but one additional visa was issued by a second consular officer.

When I saw this report on Infowars.com, I immediately thought of the Obama Administration’s efforts to facilitate visas for travelers from Ebola infected West African countries (see post entitled, With Ebola crisis raging, the Obama Administration started streamlining visas in favor of West Africans in August) and sick children from Mexico and South America who have introduced serious respiratory illnesses through the U.S., one that can leave children paralyzed much like Multiple Sclerosis or MS. It’s called Enterovirus D68.

It is obvious we have a president who is in a hurry to cause a panic among the American public before the next two national elections, and if that doesn’t work he and his handlers will hack into the totally vulnerable electronic voting system that allows ballot counting to be changed, depending on the trend. Sorry folks, your doesn’t count anymore. If you voted absentee ballot, forget it, your ballot only shows when needed.

I have said this before and I will say it again, little “Barry” is a saboteur, a gremlin, working for a shadow government that has a secret agenda, one that does not care about the health and well-being of the American people. He is a Muslim Marxist, through and through, and ignores Congressional processes at every turn, using instead “executive orders” requiring no prior approval, which are unconstitutional, and therefore illegal and which are laying the groundwork for the implementation of martial law and they have the public announcements (the recent White House Emergency Alert that everyone was confused about was part of this plan) and “martial law is here” signs are ready when the time comes. If you doubt it, just google “martial law signs.”

When this happens, civil war will break out across America, pitting patriots against the infiltrated military (your sons and daughters) and infiltrated law enforcement agencies (your sons and daughters). The result? Your neighbors and friends will die in the streets in front of their homes. Better to plan and discuss now, than wait for the time you may have pull the trigger against an enemy combatant. In the Marine Corps we called it the 7 “P’s” or Proper Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance. I’ve lived by that rule all of my life.

Obama strikes a pose

Karl Marx, the Father of Socialism

Karl Marx, the Father of Socialism

I have a suggestion for those of you who cannot find the time or motivation to keep our country from becoming a totalitarian state, not everyone feels comfortable being a political activist, especially when Sunday night football is on – please forgive my sarcasim or don’t – I’ve given up on expecting people to take action even if it means it will save their lives.

My suggestion is that you become a “Thought Warrior.” For Christians it’s called praying to God; for New Agers, it’s called meditation; for others it’s called “intent or affirmation.”

Whichever form of visualization for the future you use, it is the only way, collectively, we are going to stop Obama’s runaway train, this train being the loss of all our freedoms.

In your minds visualize giving courage to government whistleblowers who know the truth, that they may overcome their fear and speak out; envision also negative karma (or what goes around, comes around) befalling the greedy and corrupt in Washington, starting with Obama, the cap stone of the Masonic pyramid; admit you have no power over the dark forces and ask your creator (whatever you consider the Creator to be) to help you find the strength and courage to resist the forces of negativity that govern our lives.

We all have our protection

We all have our protection

If you cannot “do something,” at least “think something!” But it behoves you to store more food, water and ammo.

You will be surprised at the power of thought – some can kill with thought alone as well as heal. At bedtime send these thoughts out into the universe, then again in the morning, send them out to do their day’s work. Day after day, fight back with your thoughts! Be a warrior in this way. I promise you, we can still turn the tide.

Here’s a tip for you. Over the years I have discovered that if I am not prepared, calamity will surely find me, but if I prepare, practice and pray for protection, calamity will pass me by and look for one less prepared and protected.


Obama is a saboteur

0-melting-ice-sheets101Either “Barry Soetoro” is a weak, indecisive and ineffective leader or he is a puppet on a string(s) being pulled by hidden forces whose aim is not strengthening America’s role in the world, but tarnishing its image as the most respected, moral leader of the free world.

They (Obama and company) want dictatorships established in the U.S. and the rest of the world. Again, the establishment of a New World Order is the primary motivation for all the chaos the world is experiencing – it’s all orchestrated.

In either case, Barry is a saboteur. A saboteur secretly performs acts of destruction or damage deliberately so that it does not work correctly. Barry does not want America to work correctly, so that he and his handlers are justified in declaring martial law, and as a consequence take our personal weapons away, limit our freedom of speech and our right to practice our religious beliefs without government control and influence.

Here is what I see:

  • An increased use of “false flags” to scare the American public to accepting total gun control as in the United Kingdom.
  • Discrimination against Christian conservative organizations via selective scrutiny by the IRS in order to silence his critics.
  • Lying to the American people to enact his privatization of health care in the U.S. – “You can keep your doctor, if you want to.”
  • Falsely elected on promises he never intended to keep, i.e., protect whistleblowers, close Guantanamo, work with Congress to protect our Constitutional form of government – Barry governs by “executive order,” he is, in effect, a dictator now.
  • Under his direct order, he expanded the surveillance of the ordinary American citizen via the NSA and other spy organizations, such as the CIA and FBI. He merely picked up after George Bush left office.
  • He secretly provides funding to known terrorist organizations to perpetuate the lie of the “War on Terror.” – That was the story behind Benghazi, a story that has never publically been told, but which most Washington insiders know to be true.

Keep giving “Barry” the benefit of the doubt if you want, but personally, I think this man should have never been elected and now that he is in office, he ought to be impeached.

 

 


The IRS is America’s Gestapo: Protecting a select few and punishing the rest

Americans are in a Catch 22, meaning a paradoxical situation from which an individual cannot escape because of contradictory rules

1On the one hand you have a representative form of government that provides its citizens with a comprehensive legal system, protection from aggressors via its military forces, an infrastructure that helps maintain roads, highways and energy source and distribution; and a multitude of other goods and services of critical importance to its over 318 million residents.

Of course we pay for these services through local, state and federal taxes.

But at the same time, this government has a double standard where some citizens are given the benefits and protection enabled by these goods and others are not. This is where the “Catch 22” come in, dear reader.

The ones that are not provided these paid-for goods and services are those that are critical of the current political administration (political dissenters like Tea Party and Christian organizations, in other words conservatives that do not believe in big government) that occupy the seats of power at any one time, but more specifically the Executive Branch of government, the Office of the President, yes, Barack Obama – again.

Where does the buck stop? States that comply with Washington dictates get the subsidies, welfare, tax breaks and easy access. It is really Socialism with a touch of Marxism, Communisim and Fascism. Either way it is a Nazi controlled society  – tyranny at its best.

The IRS is the federal government’s primary mechanism to collect taxes from its citizens in order to be able to fullfil its mission. It should be a fair, impartial and transparent agency that serves to keep our nation functioning in any number of areas, not the least of which is out military defenses.

Yet, our current political administration has used the IRS as a Gestapo-like organization to protect some individuals and punish others. Instead of storm troopers breaking down your door, you have this U.S. Gestapo IRS conducting tax audits of individual disssenters, witholding or delaying tax exemption status to specific organizations and much more of which we cannot be aware because transparency does not exist in this process of tax collection.


Rethinking 9/11: GOP legislator is shocked by secret investigation

Rep. Thomas Massie

Rep. Thomas Massie

“A Republican lawmaker renewed his call for the release of 28 redacted pages from the investigative report into the 9/11 terrorist attacks — which a left-wing fringe group claims implicates the British monarchy.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) appeared Wednesday on the Glenn Beck Program to discuss the excerpt, which he and two other current lawmakers and one former lawmaker were permitted to read earlier this year.

The Tea Party-backed freshman lawmaker, who was one of five House Republicans who voted against authorizing Speaker John Boehner to sue President Barack Obama, posted video earlier this month from a news conference on those classified portions of the “Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001.”

‘It is sort of shocking when you read it,’ Massie told reporters. ‘As I read it, we all had our own experience, I had to stop every couple of pages and absorb and try to rearrange my understanding of history for the past 13 years and the years leading up to that. It challenges you to rethink everything.’

Massie appeared alongside Reps. Walter Jones (R-NC) and Stephen Lynch (D-MA), who cosponsored legislation to release the classified pages after being allowed to read them – but not to publicly discuss their contents.”

We are in the dark about global politics – Part I

What follows is a perspective developed over a life-time of formal education, military training, travel, observation and critical thinking. It has been slow in its development, each piece of information, seeming to fit into a tapestry, puzzle or criminal investigation has been digested and cross-referenced by numerous experiences, some supported by validated sources, others intuitive.

My conclusions are generally critical of remote governments (national congresses, parliaments, etc.), and the current political administration, in particular; so NSA, the CIA or FBI should not use it as justification to arrest me, send a drone to my home or place me on a domestic terrorist list, that is, unless the Freedom of Speech amendment has been repealed by a White House lawyer and forgot to tell the American people, which is entirely possible given the penchant for secrecy and lack of transparency in political administrations. What I am about to describe can only be viewed as a planetary transformation of a political, economic and life-sustaining nature.

Hellenic Parliament of Greece

Hellenic Parliament of Greece

What I mean by a planetary transformation is the degree to which all nations, not just the United States, are being watched and monitored by spy agencies (I don’t use the term “intelligence” anymore as “spy” is really what they do), NSA of course, having the most sophisticated and wide-ranging apparatus, an apparatus that we are only now beginning to understand, thanks to the revelations of Edward Snowden, the most sought after whistle blower in U.S. history.

I do not agree with Putin’s style of Communism, but I do appreciate his willingness to stand up to the new bullies in the school yard, neoconservative globalists like the Bush dynasty, Obama, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Bolton, Perle, and Brener by giving Snowden asylum and access to a world stage forum. I’m sorry, I have to tell like it is, but these guys are no less tyrannical and controlling than another administration that lead Germany into World War II – the Third Reich.

It is not just modern day Germany’s government and business leaders that have made known their objections to NSA’s intrusions into their private dealings, (Chancellor Merkel being a case in point due to Germany’s critical position in the European Union) but all of the G8, G9 or G-whatever developed countries that are having their leaders spied upon, intimidated and subtlety told to comply with the “New World Order” agenda or guess what? We’ve got the “dirt” and I just don’t mean pictures. We will get to what these forces are later in this “expose.” Who is not appropriate, force is.

United Nations flags

United Nations flags

This international “agenda” includes the United Nation’s Sustainable Development in the 21st Century Project which essentially dismantles national sovereignty, world-wide, under the guise of an international “coherent policy” that overrides national laws and regulations, practices, policies, call them what you wish, (pandemics being just one example, but of course there is evidence that the UN has failed to monitor the “accidental” contamination of vaccines with deadly viruses), food regulation (Monsanto’s GMO-hybridization program), educational standards (Common Core Curriculum) in the U.S. but soon to appear in other countries, and treaties like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement that will allow multi-national corporations in North America to dictate to individual governments the degree and manner of mineral/fuel extraction for any number of natural resources, and, of course, the degree of industry regulation these governments (little to none) can impose on their new corporate masters.

And, I might add, as consumers we fuel (no pun intended) the need to deplete our natural resources to the point of extinction. If you haven’t hear about these global initiatives, you are not doing your duty, dear reader. Spend less time making more money and more time reading and researching because before too long you may not even have the time or money to make a difference. There is a positive side to NOT trying to keep up with the Jones, prices will go down as corporations realize they can only induce you buy by reducing their prices. Less demand, less cost.

Most of us like gas guzzling SUVs, but did you know that your “need” for a attractive means of transportation promotes a slave trade in Indonesia, pollutes the air in Mexico City and Beijing and let’s not forget London and New York City! In other words, trans-national corporations will continue to increase their ludicrous (excessive) profits while at the same time increasing the speed at which we are destroying the environment (air, water and soil) making this planet totally unfit for human habitation very possibly within one generation – in more realistic terms, when our grandchildren become adults with their own children they be at a loss for words for why there are no more wild animals in the forests, or clear air and oceans teeming with fish? It is a terra-modification program on the largest scale imaginable, exacerbating (agitating) cultural divisions, family values, allegiance to government political policies in areas such as church and state, health, moral values and even gender preferences.

New world orderI used to tell myself these corporate polluters like BP, Exxon, Dove, the Koch brothers and their corporate buddies will certainly have to come to their senses eventually, and act responsibly. After all, the science is on the side of the conservationists and you would have to be blind, dumb and otherwise senseless (not to mention callous) not to see what is going to happen, no, excuse me, what is already happening.

I have to make a distinction here. Conservationists are not party affiliated, because as many Democrats as Republicans are enablers of pollution due to their need to keep the re-election contributions coming in from the major polluters. They may say they are independent legislators, but when your income and the well being of your family depends on your salary and the “perks” provided by campaign contributors you are a bit more receptive to the arguments of highly paid lobbyists. It is easy to lie to yourself.

The conservationist is the farmer who holds dirt in his hands, the tourist that takes a breath-taking photograph of a sierra, river or ancient monument, the child that reads a book of nature’s wonders and you, who are still reading this post, irrespective of your experience or origins. We are one, committed to preserving our planet, our home.

I am about to reveal the real power brokers behind this planetary transformation and you may find my conclusions surprising or even disturbing. So be patient.

Now we come to the moment of truth, fait accompli or the cold hard facts. See Part II of this post. (still in development)


A warning to the American people

Democratic Socialism, Marxist Socialism, and National Socialism

Democratic Socialism, Marxist Socialism, and National Socialism

The current push by the White House to enact some form of gun control was predictable.

Obama has advocated gun control before but never have I seen the aggressiveness with which he is pursuing this agenda, as he is now. He brings the topic up whenever he can and has gone as far as using the social media like Tumblr to get his message across. I have always thought that Obama was a key player in the Shadow Government’s strategic plan to establish an authoritarian form of government in America. This “Shadow Government” is nothing more than a relatively small group of elite billionaires and Socialist-minded politicians who would never have succeeded without 9/11 or the incidents of mass shootings our media hypes almost on a daily basis. As a matter of fact, this government is intentionally creating a climate of fear in order to justify further control.

I have told friends and family who care to listen that Obama intends to become a permanent dictator. How? Simply, he will declare Martial Law as the end of his second term comes to an end. I see the scenario as playing out something like this.

Obama will use executive privilege to enact some form of gun control, perhaps not confiscation, but certainly something serious enough to raise the ire of Second Amendment advocates. Obama’s actions will anger the pro-gun groups like the NRA and the thousands of Patriot groups across America, the kind that showed up at the Bundy ranch in Nevada where both sides, federal forces and citizens were gun-to-gun in a confrontation. If these groups do anything that even smacks of illegal, anti-government activity Commander-in-Chief Obama will order federal troops to put down the “rebellion.”.

You may recall that Obama had asked high ranking military officers whether they would fire upon American citizens if ordered which resulted in a purge of generals and admirals who would not agree. Further, the Obama Administration has recently revived the Domestic Terrorist Unit that Congress shot down after 9/11. Why do you think the Department of Homeland Security has built and maintained so many unoccupied camps throughout the United States? Don’t believe it? Do your homework.

This will be the beginning of the the second American Civil War. Obama, pretending to be like President Lincoln, will declare these groups as domestic terrorists, outcasts and secessionists and use Martial Law to squash the rebellion; however, Martial Law will never go away even if the rebellion is squashed and as a consequence America will cease to be a Democracy.

Congress will be impotent and unable to do anything, in fact, any congressman who dares to side with the gun advocates will likely be arrested or charged with sedition or treason. The American public will be bought off by the enactment of social programs that will made them dependent on the federal government, thus removing any motivation for them to resist the idea of a totalitarian form of government.  Electronic IDs will become mandatory to buy food or initiate financial transactions – the mark of the beast.

Plausible? Yes. Will it happen? That depends on you.

Shocking! Cantor booted out of Congress and NSA is destroying evidence! Holy Blackjack, Batman!

Screenshot_2014-06-11-15-32-45-1NSA is being sued by all kinds of organizations, so what does it do? It asks the courts permission to destroy key records and consequently any evidence that maybe subpoenaed in a trial. Cantor

Eric Cantor, the second most powerful Republican in the House lost the primary. Wow! The establishment types must really be going to the bathroom a lot. Holy Sh__!

V.A. hospital update

Associated Press reported today that Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki accepted the resignation of Robert Petzel, the department’s undersecretary for health care.  The announcement was mocked by some as “political double speak.” Petzel was scheduled to retire this year. The White House said President Barack Obama supports Shinseki’s decision and thanks Petzel for his service.

You can tell health care will continue as usual in the V.A. health care system. If this resignation was an admission of guilt, then our president by thanking Petzel rewards incompetants and punishes whistle blowers.  Is something wrong with this picture?

What do you call a violation of trust by a close friend or relative? A betrayal?

thS1LNYTM1On the other hand, what do you call a government that violates the trust of its own citizens?

It stands to reason that “betrayal” is not strong enough to describe the violation of an innocent by one charged with their protection – treason may be a more appropriate term.

The Catholic Church is entrusted with the protection of small defenseless children and instead sexually abuses them and establishes human trafficking networks so that the sexual perversions of its priests and high officials are catered to and satisfied. This we know from recent cases of children in Mohawk residential schools within Canada that implicates Canadian elected officials, the British Common Wealth, Methodist, Catholic and Protestant churches, a horrific scandal that will soon be the subject of one of my posts in the near future.

Ever since 9/11, we have heard repeatedly from our illustrious leaders that “If you are not with us you are against us,” “If you give aide or comfort to the enemy, knowingly or unknowingly, you are a traitor.” “You put our troops in harms way, if you do not support the war effort.”

If a citizen of the United States sold government secrets to a foreign power (as some FBI agents and high government officials have been know to do) that person would be prosecuted to the full extent of the law as a traitor.  Any act or intent that would put our country at risk and jeopardize our national security is, without a doubt, traitorous. Do you see where I am going with this?

we-tolerate-no-one-in-our-ranks-who-attacks-the-ideas-of-christianity-our-movement-is-christian-adolf-hitler1-330x244

Hitler conveniently claimed to be a Christian to get elected. His mother was Roman Catholic, but he did not practice the sacraments. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_Hitler%27s_religious_views

I have no doubt that many in Barack Obama’s administration have known for years that this administration and previous administrations have quietly and ever increasingly been spying on citizens which puts ordinary citizens in harms way, compromises them, easily leads to blackmail and facilitates total control, more so than any tyrannical government in recent history.

Obama compares to Hitler in his ambition and deviousness and while he has not started to gas and murder his own citizens, at least not yet, he does have a “kill list” and any number of ways to implement it. Something of this magnitude cannot be totally hidden from view, Snowden just being the most obvious example.

By definition, Barack Hussein Obama is a traitor to America and the American people yet my biggest fear is that the American public will care less that their freedoms are being taken away and worship their new leader as protector and father figure.

Stalin

Joseph Stalin

The uncanny effects that tyrannical figures have over their subjects can be seen in the nostalgia old Russians have for Stalin and ex-Nazis for their “Fuhrer.”  Human nature is such that we would much rather be led and fed than be free with all its responsibilities.

Researchers who attempted to count the number of people killed under Stalin’s regime produced estimates ranging from 3 to 60 million.

Between 1939 and 1945, the German Schutzstaffel (SS), assisted by collaborationist governments and recruits from occupied countries, was responsible for the deaths of at least eleven million people, including 5.5 to six million Jews (representing two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe), and between 200,000 and 1,500,000 Romani people.

The FBI, Boiling Frogs, and an angry Black community

th

More interesting than you realize. You can tell a liar easily.

I was recently watching C-Span, specifically budget hearings on the FBI’s budget requests for the coming fiscal year.  Apparantly, sequestration, had frozen hiring in many federal departments; however the FBI had received special dipensation due to their key role in national security.  Sequestration, if you don’t know, were automatic budget cuts in the amount of 85 billion for fiscal year 2013. Congress had authorized over 1,000 jobs so the FBI could continue its mission and now was in a position to augment that even more with the stabilization of the budget process.

2013-07-29T221253Z_1_CBRE96S1PPO00_RTROPTP_3_POLITICS-US-USA-CONGRESS-FBI_JPG_475x310_q85


FBI director nominee James Comey is sworn in before testifying at the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington July 9, 2013.

The newly appointed director of the FBI was making a presentation to the senate panel dealing with budget matters and was asked by the chair of the committee what he considered to be the major problems facing the nation in terms of national security. What was interesting was not his analysis of the terrorist threat facing our nation, such as Al Qaeda, but what he called the domestic cyber network where more and more individuals are becoming critical of the United States and its policies creating a pool of dissidents that potentially could join the ranks of terrorist organizations based here in the United States and in foreign countries.  He saw the freedom of the Internet as a vehicle for such developments and while not directly advocating that the Internet no longer be free and unrestricted, the implication was definitely there, that is, controlling the Internet just like the NSA is controlling all our phone communications.

That means that inviduals like me and the thousands of bloggers who are critical of the present administration are potential targets, if not already, of surveillance for fear that we might someday join a radical minuteman group out to destroy government facilities or programs.

Now, I am an ex-Marine captain who served in the Vietnam War and saw combat both as an infantry officer and commander of a Reconnaissance company in the jungles of Vietnam.  I joined because I am a patriot, knowing full well before I re-enlisted, that we had no business fighting a war in a faraway country that was no threat to us and was, in fact, a nationalist country, not truly Communist, who had fought for their freedom and independence against Chinese, Japanese and French occupation forces.  I joined to serve my country even though I had already served my military obligation because, right or wrong, I owed it to my country and our democractic way of life to support the war effort. I came back, and even though I was criticized for fighting a war that was politically motivated, I was proud and remain proud to have served my country.  I was patriotic when patriotism wasn’t cool.

Now as a retired senior citizen, I see that our country has come under the influence of people who are not defenders of our democratic way of life, but just the opposite.  My advocacy is so that the American people will wake up to the threat that faces us all and vote out those elements and individuals who dare reduce our freedoms and liberties in the name of national security.  I made a promise after leaving the Marine Corps never to take up arms against any people again, although I am a firm believer in the Second Ammendment and the right to defend myself and loved ones against aggressors be they Gestapo-like police agencies or foreign nationals who invade our country.  I am a peace loving man but how can I idlely stand by while socialists with a global agenda destroy everything we have fought for and died for?

After watching the budget hearings I decided to visit a blog called Boiling Frogs Post (a boiling frog doesn’t know he is cooked until its too late) which is an insightful blog authored by Sibel Edmonds, a former FBI translator who became a whitleblower after her pleas to superior officials in the FBI fell on deaf ears.  She had uncovered that Turkish spies had infiltrated the FBI and were involved in a number of corrupt and very unAmerican activities, for example, stealing nuclear weapon secrets. After a while, she was fired and charged with violating the chain of command by going to Congress with her allegations.  Sound familiar?

Well, one of her latest posts was an article by Glen Ford, a black activist, who like a growing number of black community leaders are calling out Obama for his failed policies and broken promises. White America should read this or at least be aware that the black community is no longer in Obama’s pocket. With that knowledge they can perhaps overcome their fear of being called a racist by opposing Obama’s policies which are disastrous for both whites and blacks and everything in between.

New Orleans Black Activists Denounce Obama and Shame Misleadership Class

A Black Agenda Radio commentary by Glen Ford

“Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and trade union leaders denounced unemployment, home foreclosures and war in general, but did not dare to hold the corporate Democrat in the White House responsible for any of it.”

This weekend saw two major Black demonstrations – one in Washington, one in Detroit – and a presidential speech at Xavier University, in New Orleans, on the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Yet a small, hardly noticed protest outside what used to be a public housing project in the St. Bernard section of New Orleans, was probably more relevant to the burning issues of today than the rallies held by Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

A relatively small group of New Orleans activists gathered in the rain outside the project to protest the visit to the city by President Obama, whose housing policies spell doom for the entire concept of public housing in the United States. When Katrina struck, the Bush administration’s Department of Housing was quick to call for demolition of all the public housing units in New Orleans, even though most of the buildings were salvageable. The residents were locked out, 3,000 of them, like hundreds of thousands of others across the country since the early Nineties, victims of corporate greed for the land the projects sit on and a racist prejudice that holds that Black and poor people are inherently dangerous when concentrated in one place. Katrina was simply a convenient excuse to get rid of public housing in New Orleans, where four major projects were demolished.

In New Orleans and elsewhere across the country, the poor who are evicted from public housing are expected to disperse, get out of the way of corporate development that serves the needs of other people, and be quiet. But this weekend, the former residents of the St. Bernard project refused to scatter and be silent.  They had earlier built a tent encampment nearby, called Survivors’ Village. Now they denounced President Obama and his friend, Warren Buffett, the multi-billionaire hedge fund baron who is developing the site of their former homes under a new name, Columbia Parc, for a new class of residents.

“The former residents of the St. Bernard project refused to scatter and be silent.”

The Obama administration has taken the anti-public housing policies of Bush and previous presidents to a new level, with a plan to abandon any federal commitment to building and maintaining housing for the poor. Instead, fat cats like Warren Buffett and huge private banking institutions will inherit the nation’s public housing properties. In New York City, the Citigroup bankers now own a piece of 13 public housing projects – a taste of what Obama has in store for what remains of America’s public housing stock.

At the start of this commentary, I said that the St. Bernard neighborhood demonstration was “probably more relevant to the burning issues of today” than Al Sharpton’s Washington rally and Jesse Jackson’s Detroit event. That’s because the demonstrators in New Orleans knew whose policies they were protesting against, and called out his name: President Obama. In Detroit and Washington, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and trade union leaders denounced unemployment, home foreclosures and war in general, but did not dare to hold the corporate Democrat in the White House responsible for any of it.

Obama’s wars range from Asia and Africa to the streets of America’s cities, whose schools and housing he is turning over to the likes of Warren Buffett, rich finance capitalists that have already exported all the jobs. The demonstrators in New Orleans understand that. What currently passes for Black leadership, does not.”

Report on Bush era torture “chilling” according to Feinstein

feinstein_cia_rtr_img

Senator Dianne Feinstein is trailed by reporters at the US Capitol in Washington on March 11, 2014. (Reuters/Jonathan Ernst)

Senator Dianne Feinstein had her peacock feathers ruffled by the disclosure that the CIA had searched through her committee’s databases and even removed some sensitive files that graphically described the interrogation techniques (torture) used by the CIA on “detainees” during the Bush Administration.

Please keep in mind that there is no evidence that these “techniques” are not still being used by the Obama Administration, as we have seen little change since the Bush years, in fact, it has become much worse with our own liberties being taken away through illegal wiretapping and phone metadata mining and drone attacks within sovereign countries who want the practice stopped but to no avail.  Now, journalists are tracked and recorded and if one believes the conspiracy theorists, killed by “suicide” to keep them from exposing government corruption and illegal practices.

I am reminded of German Chancellor Merkel’s indignation upon hearing she and her staff’s private phone calls were being listened to by NSA.  Merkel self-admittedly knew that NSA was spying on the German people as part of an intelligence agreement wherein the NSA conducted surveillance on individuals and organizations the German government considered ‘suspect.”  So its O.K. to spy on Germans, not just Merkel and her friends.

Well, as chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Feinstein was fully aware that the government was spying on the American public from the beginning, again, self-admittedly.  She was an “insider” comfortable in her status as supporter of Obama’s growing network of surveillance just as she was of Bush’s questionable intelligence practices, just as long as she and her committee were exempt.  Well, guess what, little girl?  You are no match for the globalist whose plans include nothing less than dictatorial control of the planet and everyone who lives on it.

So what exactly was done by the CIA?  For that we need a little history.

hayden

Michael Vincent Hayden (born March 17, 1945) is a retired United States Air Force four-star general and former Director of the National Security Agency and Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

For years, members of the Senate Intelligence Committee were unaware of this program, save the chair and vice chair. The full committee was abruptly informed of the program by then-CIA Director Michael Hayden in September 2006, only hours before President Bush announced the existence of the program to the public. About a year later, The New York Times reported that the CIA was destroying videotapes of the first “enhanced” interrogations conducted by the agency.

By then, Democrats had taken control of the Senate and demanded answers. Hayden explained to the committee that the videotapes had to be destroyed, but that the CIA possessed paper records and operational cables that were “a more than adequate representation” of what was on the video tapes. He allowed committee investigators to review those documents, which they did over a period of years, culminating in 2009.

220px-Leon_Panetta,_official_DoD_photo_portrait,_2011

Leon Edward Panetta (born June 28, 1938) is an American statesman, lawyer, and professor. He served in the Barack Obama administration as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency from 2009 to 2011 and as Secretary of Defense from 2011 to 2013.

What they found was “chilling,” in the words of Feinstein and were “far different and far more harsh” than what the CIA had been admitting. Feinstein then wanted a full review of the program by the Senate Intelligence Committee, which it approved by a 14-1 vote. Feinstein wanted the CIA to turn over all relevant documents to the committee in their usual offices, as had been done in the past. CIA Director Leon Panetta, who had been appointed by Barack Obama and confirmed just a month earlier, had other ideas.

Panetta wanted the review to take place at a secure CIA facility in Northern Virginia—something that would seem to undermine an independent congressional review. But, as Feinstein outlined in her speech Tuesday, an agreement was reached with agency officials in which the Senate review would take place on secure computers, but at the CIA facility.

It’s important to understand that this computer system in effect belonged to Congress, which was conducting crucial oversight of the executive branch as protected by the Constitution. It was this computer system that Feinstein alleges was infiltrated by the CIA.

In December 2012, the Intelligence Committee completed its 6,300-page review of the Bush administration’s torture programs. The public has not seen this report, as it remains classified, but it has been described as “searing” and highly critical of the CIA and the Bush administration. The CIA has reviewed the report and agrees with some of it, but disagrees strongly with other parts—generally the most damning ones. Over the course of the committee investigation, staffers discovered what has been come to be known as the internal “Panetta Review.” This was essentially a report ordered by the new CIA Director, Panetta to examine the documents that were being turned over to Congress, in an effort to get a grip on what exactly was being revealed. The committee has a partial version of this review on its computers, Feinstein said, as well as a printed-out, redacted hard copy in a secure location inside the Hart Senate Office building.

z_torture006

Bush Administration memos released by the White House provide new insight into claims that American agents used insects to torture the young children of alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

By all accounts, the Panetta Review is damning. The public first learned of it last December, when Senator Mark Udall referenced it in an open confirmation hearing for CIA General Counsel Dianne Krass. “It appears that (the CIA’s internal detention and interrogation program review), which was initiated by former Director Panetta, is consistent with the Intelligence committee’s report, but amazingly it conflicts with the official CIA response,” Udall said during the hearing.  You can only conclude that the CIA was blatantly lying about the use of torture to Congress and the general public.

It is this review which was “repatriated” by the CIA.  They realized that this CIA internal document would irreparably damage the CIA’s reputation (as if it had a good one to begin with).

Feinstein has since gone on record as saying the CIA’s subversive removal of Senate Intelligence Committee documents (the committee is charged with oversight of the CIA) are a violation of the principles of the separation of powers under the United States Constitution, the integrity of congressional oversight of US intelligence agencies and may also have violated the Fourth Amendment, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, as well as Executive Order 12333, which prohibits the CIA from conducting domestic searches or surveillance.

Again, it is clear to see that this administration has not, will not and cannot tell the American public the truth.  To do so would clearly show its illegitimacy as our government and provide grounds for impeachment at the highest levels.

NSA isn’t protecting us from terrorists, it’s protecting itself from us

watching youAnyone who still believes that NSA is an anti-terrorist intelligence agency probably still believes Santa Claus is real and Dwayne Johnson is really the Tooth Fairy.

Ever since James Clapper from the NSA directly lied to Congress about spying on millions of Americans, The U.S. Congress has lost every vestige of credibility by doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!  No rebuke, no sanctions for lying to Congress, no criticism against a president who continues to authorize an illegal and ineffective program started under George W. Bush.

you lieBush was so bad as a president one can only compare him to a spoiled brat who became president only through the manipulations of his father, the godfather of the CIA mafia and leader of the NWO.  I thought GW was as bad as it could get, until Obama acted and lied his way into the White House.  If Obama tells you he believes in transparency that really means spying on every American Citizen, every individual on the planet and using that information to insure that anyone opposing him or his circle of socialism obsessed advisors is neutralized.

Let’s look at the video of Clapper lying to Congress, again.

Board Members meet with President Obama on June 21, 2013​

Most recently an independent federal oversight body created immediately after 9/11, the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board found that the NSA phone surveillance program was ineffective and  illegal and should be terminated.  Obama has responded by saying that it was not illegal and would continue with minor modifications. The Board is an independent, bipartisan agency within the executive branch established by the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act, Pub. L. 110-53, signed into law in August 2007.

Following is a video produced by the Real News Network which discusses the implications of this new trampling of the U.S. Constitution.

The time has come for American citizens to accept the fact that Congress is not going to do anything but cave to the Obama Administration.  You are no longer represented, you are being ripped off, lied to, and made to look like fools.

The CIA and the new Imperialism

220px-Gilbert_Stuart_Williamstown_Portrait_of_George_Washington

Portrait of George Washington

The United States of America is really a misnomer.  A misnomer is a description or title that does not accurately reflect the true nature of an entity or organization.

The name, “United States of America,” in its historical context, means a group of states that banded together for mutual purposes of trade and protection.

Cowpens

The Battle of Cowpens, painted by William Ranney in 1845. The scene depicts an unnamed black soldier (left) firing his pistol and saving the life of Colonel William Washington (on white horse in center).

Our founding fathers considered sacred our individual liberties, i.e., life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and saw the role of government as one of limited power. A change in government leadership at the executive level would be orderly and through national elections as an expression of the will of the people, not the will of the wealthy and powerful. In essence, the states were sovereign bodies that by mutual agreements would work together to insure those liberties so eloquently expressed in the Declaration of Independence and Constitution of the United States of America would remain our guiding light.

The federal government was not intended to be large or influential, certainly not autonomous in actions of trade, war and international relations. Congress was to retain the power of the purse, approve all trade agreements, pass legislation and along with the Executive and Judiciary balance serve at the will of the people.

Bush standing on the seal of the CIA at Langley

So if the term, the United States of America, is no longer reflective of our current government, what is the true name of our nation?  Based on the evolution of government since 1776, the term that most accurately describes our nation is The American Empire, with no reference to states or united.

President Obama along with his immediate predecessors believe that we are a nation destined to be “exceptional,” in its vulgar form not idealistic form, that our role is as the sole decision maker in matters of domestic and international policy. The will of the people does not exist, only the will of the wealthy and powerful – the exceptional.

The federal government has invaded our lives, even at the most intimate level of religious and family values such as birth control, abortion and the expressions of religious faith, even as our currency carries the phrase, “In God We Trust.”  Christianity is under attack in our schools and public places.  President Obama has acted unilaterally in aggressions against distant sovereign nations, justifying those actions as “pre-emptive” and in our “national interest.”  Our government has regressed to the days of the former British Empire, the very nation against which we rebelled due to its tyrannical hold on the American colonies.  The Persian Empire, the Roman Empire, the British Empire and now, the American Empire unfolds in the pages of history – unless, we the people deny their ambitions.

A recent story, appearing in a number of source publications has appeared with regard to the CIA spying on computers used by Congressional aides, but not just any aides – aides from the Senate Intelligence Committee which is charged with oversight of the CIA. The fox is now in the hen house.

Further, these aides were involved in developing a lengthy report on the CIA’s role in the torture of detainees during the Bush Administration.  The findings, thus far, are pending declassification, yet calls for President Obama to allow their disclosure are falling on deaf ears.  If previous efforts to declassify congressional investigative reports are any indication, Obama will not allow its declassification.  So much for transparency.

In a press release from one of the Senate Intelligence Committee members, Senator Martin Heinrich, states, “The Senate Intelligence Committee oversees the CIA, not the other way around.”

A recent development alleges President Obama knew about the CIA’s spying on the Senate Intelligence Committee, but said nothing to Congress or the committee. The following links will provide you with the details and I strongly urge you to read them.

However, my purpose in sharing this story with you is to prove to you that we are no longer a democracy. Our Founding Fathers knew this time could come and give us the tools to prevent the ugly head of tyranny from appearing once again.  The tools are still there, but without an informed citizenry, without your participation in the process, we are just deer in the headlights.  You saw it coming and yet you did nothing.

States not waiting for Feds to stop illegal surveillance

nsa logo parody

“All your data”

Upset that Congress is not leading the fight to curtail unwarranted surveillance of American citizens, state legislatures and advocacy groups are taking matters into their own hands.

According to the Associated Press,

“Republican and Democratic lawmakers have joined in proposing the measures, reflecting the unusual mix of political partnerships that have arisen since the NSA revelations that began in May.   Establishment leadership has generally favored the programs, while conservative limited government advocates and liberal privacy supporters have opposed them.

Supporters say the measures are needed because technology has grown to the point that police can digitally track someone’s every move.

Devices such as license plate readers and cellphone trackers “can tell whether you stayed in a motel that specializes in hourly rates, or you stopped at tavern that has nude dancers,” said David Fidanque, director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon.

‘It’s one thing to know you haven’t violated the law, but it’s another thing to know you haven’t had every one of your moves tracked,’ he said.”

Next week, on February 11, privacy advocates and online freedom groups are mobilizing against NSA and other government surveillance in a day of action they’ve dubbed ‘The Day We Fight Back.’

According to Katitza Rodriguez at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, one of the groups organizing the action, those participating will be demanding “an end to mass surveillance in every country, by every state, regardless of boundaries or politics.”

The arrest, trial and punishment of an American president

USRepWalter B Jones

U.S. Representative, Walter B. Jones

Something quite amazing and significant happened on December 3, 2013.  On that date two United States congressmen introduced House Resolution 428 urging President Obama to declassify the contents of the “Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September, 2001.”

The reason this resolution is so significant is because its contents are known by former White House officials including President George W. Bush and the members of the special bipartisan commission that compiled the report.  There were 28 pages of the 823-page report that were entirely redacted (blacked out), information that would have identified individuals and countries that were involved in carrying out 9/11, yet by presidential order these pages were not made available to the public or the 9/11 Commission which officially looked into the causes of the Twin Towers attack.

President George W. Bush with Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia

According to sources familiar with the report, the evidence seems to point to President Bush and Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia as facilitators if not key conspirators in the planning and implementation of 9/11.  It could be proven, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Saudi Arabia sponsored the terrorists both in terms of money and training and that a role was played by Israel which knew in advance of the false flag operation and may have well participated.  If these allegations are false, then there should be no reason to keep the full contents of this report hidden or classified.

If you followed the Congressional and White House inquiries regarding the parties to blame for the attack after 9/11, you will know that the White House, specifically President Bush, Vice President Cheney and senators Graham and Goss rebuffed calls for any independent investigation preferring to let government intelligence agencies to conduct investigations surrounding the 9/11 attacks.

Now imagine that these documents are declassified and a new inquiry into 9/11 is initiated.  As with any conspiracy, the web of culpability does not end with one or two key individuals.  To carry out an act of this magnitude, many others will need to be implicated.

I have always contended that if 9/11 was exposed for what it was, the house of cards built by the powers that would destroy our Constitution will fall and we will be able to see why we suffer the burden of a crumbling economy, loss of liberties, and a nation divided instead of the melting pot we once were.
