You are the resistance

Do guns kill people or psychologically disturbed individuals that have given up on the American dream?

Whose fault is it that more and more disturbed individuals are committing either suicide or mass murder in America?

If you ask gun control advocates, the fault lies in little-to-no regulation in gun sales. The federal government and its alphabet soup agencies, i.e., FBI, ATF and DOJ are the advocates for more stringent (binding, demanding) gun control laws.

If they had their way, they would probably want America to become like England where citizens and police are not allowed to own or carry guns. Whether Obama would disarm police agencies as well, is questionable, since he seems bent on militarizing local law enforcement. Besides, studies show that England’s overall crime rate is higher than in the U.S. (Total crimes per 1000).

Violent crime is higher in the U.S. than in England, according to comparative statistics, but in my humble opinion that is not due to an armed citizenry or the availability of guns, but other factors that I shall elaborate upon below.

Interestingly enough, England has a greater problem with drug abuse than the U.S. which is incredible to me, because I thought the U.S. was the drug capitol of the world. When people cannot act out, they internalize their frustrations and abuse themselves. That’s why drug abuse is called a victimless crime.

If you ask those that are against additional gun control, it is the fault of the mental health system (please!) and the failure of the gun purchase background check system to thoroughly screen and identify individuals who should not be allowed to acquire guns, Dylann Roof the Charleston church shooter, being the most recent example. In other words, it is the failure of the system to work as it should.

6a00d83451c64169e201310fca35b9970cI adhere to neither poor excuse as these are but symptoms of a greater underlying cause. Let me try and explain.

Now, this topic is not just of academic interest to me, as I have over seven years of experience working in the criminal justice system, specifically, in rehabilitation and crime prevention. At one point in my career, I was executive director of a county-wide juvenile crime prevention program in California that was considered for federal project model status due to its effectiveness in reducing juvenile crime in target areas.

How you ask? Simply, our program strategy was to provide youth with positive activities such as recreational programs, after school activities, family consultations and implementing police community programs that improved relations among law enforcement, families and youth. At one point we funded a boxing program in the middle of a high crime rate area which served to reach youth that would otherwise have been in gangs. In addition, I have a Master of Science in Corrections from Pepperdine University.

Well, enough of my qualifications to address this topic.

To me, a family that is economically secure, has adequate and inexpensive healthcare, and is part of an extended familial or community support group, is less likely to experience dysfunction and anti-social behavior.

It is the failure of our excessively large, overburdened systems of government to provide jobs for heads of household, an adequate living wage, free single-source healthcare, and opportunities for education and training that do not indenture (a legal contract that reflects a debt or purchase obligation; in historical usage, an indentured servant) an individual for life in order to repay their educational costs.

(click to enlarge) Note that this figure does not, however, include benefits for veterans, which came to $127 billion in 2011, or about 3.5 percent of the federal budget. If you count those benefits as “defense spending,” then the number goes up significantly, thus we are looking at approximately 20% of the federal budget.

Hell, considering how much we spend on defense (more than 17% of our national budget, in reality double that amount if you consider secondary industries that support military operations), we should be able to provide free healthcare, free housing and free education, and a guaranteed job, to all our seniors, families and youth. Life does not stop when you reach 65 years of age nor does ambition when you decide to follow your dream.

These “law and order” advocates whether they be on local city councils or in the United States Congress and the Presidency are playing on the fears of citizens in order to create and expand ineffective programs that only serve to limit our liberties and instill disrespect for law enforcement in general.

We are expanding the federal government’s power, contrary to the Founding Father’s intention that government be limited in scope. Originally, it was to defend our nation from foreign powers, not to interfere with the family’s right to determine their family values. It was to institutionalize freedom, not eliminate it.

If the American public abolished the federal government’s role in our lives, we would not only survive but prosper as we would learn to self-reliant and work together. We all have become welfare recipients, depending on the government to survive. If Social Security were to terminate tomorrow, I would survive, because I have skills and friends. Some, the physically  or mentally disabled, should be taken care of, but not through checks in the mail but by their families that receive adequate subsidies. We now spend more on mental health hospitals than we should, if only we would recognize the importance of family in the aging and death of loved ones.

I live in a southwestern state where crime and corruption is a major problem. I read and watch on local news how local councils hire “consultants” at exorbitant rates to study the problem of police abuse, corruption among not only non-profits but public agencies.

Any fool knows that to prevent crime and corruption, you encourage and protect individuals who are whistle-blowers. But that doesn’t happen – they get fired by their supervisors or are prosecuted. There are so many hands in the pie that no one wants to acknowledge mismanagement.

To quote a former Bill Clinton economic adviser, “It’s the economy, stupid!”

Now, I am not a Bill Clinton fan for many reasons, but under his leadership, we balanced the budget and eliminated the deficit and even developed  a monetary reserve. We started a recovery that subsequently stalled due to the stupidity of political administrations that followed. That said, I will never forgive him and Hillary for allowing drugs to enter the United States while he was governor of Arkansas during the Iran/Contra scandal.

Just search “Mena Airport + Drugs” to find the truth.

Bill Clinton a smart guy, but totally unethical, if not criminal in character. By the way, Clinton is not a Rhodes Scholar from Oxford, as popularly believed. He did receive a scholarship to go to Oxford, but he dropped out before graduating, just another example of the media covering up for a “rising star.” Yet, many refer to that time in his career as proof that he was an “intellectual.” Bullshit, he was an opportunist who let his private parts over-ride his common sense.

Barack Obama, is attempting to convince the American public that we need gun control, when, in effect, we need a strong vibrant economy. No matter how many statistics this president cites or “successes” he takes credit for, we are on the verge of total economic collapse in the United States.

For example, the Bureau of Labor Statistics recently reported, the number of people outside the workforce in July increased 144,000 over June’s record when 93,626,000 were not in the workforce. July’s labor force participation rate however remained the the same as June at 62.6 percent, so obviously unemployment statistics are skewed to falsely project an image of prosperity. My gauge to determine prosperity is how many homeless people I encounter begging for change and there are many and it is growing.

The dollar is losing its value and our national debt is cited as $16 Trillion!!! Obama just keeps printing money through the Federal Reserve with nothing behind it – not gold, not silver, not shit. China owns the U.S. in more ways than you realize.

He is attacking veterans as unstable and potential domestic terrorists, but it is Obama and his predecessors (big Bush and mini Bush) that have sent them into harm’s way, then subsequently failed to provide for their re-integration into society after suffering trauma in war-torn countries. Yet, if you think about it, it is not the veteran suffering from PTSD that commits these horrendous crimes like Aurora, Sandy Hook or the Boston Marathon bombing, but young radicalized misfits that are angry at American society, and with good reason – America is an international bully that kills thousands of innocent civilians through the use of drones and house-to-house invasions.

I am also of the firm belief, that this administration, like the two previous Bush administrations have used false flag events to justify their foreign intrusions for political purposes, as well as to limit our constitutionally guaranteed rights of Freedom of Speech and the Right to Bear Arms.

You may call me a conspiracy theorist, but I am convinced, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that George W. Bush and “friends” were responsible for 9/11. Those “friends” being the royal family of the oil rich Arab Republic, a family that has personal business dealings with the Bush family. He should have been arrested for crimes against humanity, and after a conviction, Nuremberg-style, have the distinction of being the first president executed for treason.

I don’t think that torture, spying on innocent citizens and limiting our liberties are characteristic of a free and open society. Do you?

It shouldn’t matter – but it does

Barack Hussein Obama, Sr.

Barack Hussein Obama, Sr.

Frank Marshall Davis, Communist Part member and mentor to Obama

Frank Marshall Davis, Communist Part member and mentor to Obama

It shouldn’t matter that Obama’s father of record, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., and his childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, were both card carrying Communists, this according to FBI files.

In fact, many have suggested Davis was Obama’s real father, certainly the resemblance between the two is undeniable, and further Davis had greater influence on Obama during Obama’s formative years. At the time, Davis was a propagandist for the Communist Party in America and a recruiter, the implication being that Obama’s mother was one of his recruits.

Neither should it matter that his mother was member of a radical Muslim group called the Subud Cult of Indonesia.

Loretta Fuddy, the Hawaiian heath official who “verified” and produced Obama’s birth certificate was leader of the Hawaii Subud chapter and knew Stanley Ann Dunham, Obama’s mother, quite well. She had been hired by local authorities only three months before she produced Obama’s forged certificate. Loretta Fuddy died under mysterious circumstances later. She died in a plane crash, being the only passenger to die out of dozens.

It shouldn’t matter that the family of Obama’s chief White House adviser, Valerie Jarrett, are hardcore Communists, this according to FBI files. Asked by a reporter about Jarrett’s role Obama replied, “I run everything by her.”

It also shouldn’t matter that Obama has a history of Marxist activism while a sophomore at Occidental College in Los Angeles in 1980.

Stanley Ann Dunham in a high school photo

Stanley Ann Dunham, Obama’s mother in a high school photo.

It shouldn’t matter that more than a few of his past friends or associates were well aware of his prolific (definition: great frequency) homosexuality and how willing he was to shine multi-covered lights (the rainbow symbol) over the White House after the Supreme Court’s favorable decision on gay marriage.

It shouldn’t matter that he has been critical of Christianity to of all audiences, Christian groups, referencing the Crusades and the Inquisition, or that he praises the religion of Islam at every opportunity as a holy institution that goes beyond the mission of Christianity – or that he criticizes the Bible and its authors

It shouldn’t matter that he is good friends with Bill Ayers, the infamous leader of the Weather Underground, which was responsible for the explosion of several government buildings during the 1970’s. Ayers, who has said if he could gain control of the White House would purge Democracy and establish a Socialist society.

It also should not matter that many claim Obama’s book, “Dreams From My Father” was authored by Bill Ayers who is his philosophical mentor. Ayers himself, admitted he wrote Obama’s biography, extensively the core of Obama’s book. Obama offered the book as evidence that he was an intellectual heavyweight worthy of the Oval Office despite his relatively thin resume. Did you know that Obama never once, while editor of the Harvard Law Review, had a bi-line under his name.

A website called Dreams of my Real Father (http://www.obamasrealfather.com/breaking_news002/), recently posted alleged photos of Obama’s mother in a fetish and bondage magazine, the photos having being taken by Frank Marshall Davis. Obama in his book, “Dreams From My Father” references a mentor called “Frank” who shaped his view on life.

Further, it shouldn’t matter that he was a faithful follower of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright who issues anti-American rhetoric weekly from his pulpit in Chicago Ill. Obama later distanced himself from Wright, but Wright officiated the Obama wedding and baptized his children. The Rev. Jeremiah Wright church is also described as a meeting ground for the Chicago professional Gay Black community.

Now what DOES matter, is that this president has violated the Constitution time and time again. It further matters that he has positioned himself through special legislation with the help of both parties and Presidential Executive Orders to become the dictator of America once he declares martial law, which he seems ready to do as the massive military exercise of Jade Helm seems to indicate.

He has continued to allow NSA to track our every movement and monitor our conversations to identify those who are dissenters, the first to be rounded up when he makes his move to totalitarian tyranny. That will include our aging and recent veterans, current military leaders who disagree with him (he is still purging them), his political opposition, and every citizen organization and militia that fights for the first (Freedom of Speech) and second (Right to bear arms) amendments.

Judicial Watch (JW), a first-rate organization that peels back the onion layers of corruption and gets to the truth, released a story revealing that the father, maternal grandfather and father-in-law of Barack Obama’s Senior Advisor, Valerie Jarrett, “were hardcore Communists under investigation by the U.S. government.”

In comparing all the promises presidential candidate Barack Obama made while campaigning for President, with the accomplishments in his nearly two terms of office as President, he is either totally incompetent as a political leader or never intended to keep those promises to begin with.

At a recent White House press conference celebrating Gay Pride Month, Obama got mad at a heckler, stating, “Hey, listen, you’re in my house.” Guess what Dumbo? The White House is not your house. It belongs to the taxpayer and the residing president is nothing but a guest, a visitor, until the next Dumbo comes along.

Gun control and confiscation; higher health costs that benefit Big Pharma; free trade agreements that like NAFTA, will eliminate jobs in America; the militarization of local law enforcement; supporting terrorism overseas (ISIS and Al Qaeda) through training and equipment; porous borders that allow sick uneducated immigrants, criminals and terrorists to enter the United States providing shelter and passage to select states. These are part of the agenda Obama has pursued since day one.

What is his real intent? One thing is for sure, he is turning America into a Banana Republic. All it is going to take is a false flag event of sufficient size and destruction to warrant martial law, just as Bush did with 9/11.

Tell me, where has the supposedly free press and Congress been with all of this? Are you beginning to see that the American people, average citizens and patriots, are out in the cold?

God, I hope you wake up before it is too late.

Obama cries as he bids farewell to Eric Holder

Obama and Holder

Obama and Holder

Last Friday, February 27, 2015, Obama cried as he bid farewell to Attorney General Eric Holder his “friend” and loyal supporter.

He said, “Having good men in a position of power and authority, who are willing to fight for what is right, that is a rare thing, a powerful thing. That’s something that shapes our future in ways we don’t even understand, we don’t always imagine. It made me very proud.”

holder1Apparently what is right is prosecuting more whistle blowers than all previous attorney generals combined; the Fast and Furious scandal which allowed thousands of guns to be smuggled from the United States to the drug cartels in Mexico; for lying to Congress and withholding subpoenaed documents; for failing to prosecute the CEOs of any financial institution for illegal bank practices during the Great Recession of 2007-2008, calling them too big to fail; defending the NSA’s vacuuming up of all of our phone calls, and the mass surveillance of us on the Internet, invoking the doctrine of “State Secrets” to get away with it; and disproportionately hiring more Democrats than Republicans as U.S. Attorneys.

If I was a mafia boss, I would cry too if I lost my best consigliere.

The official version of the Pentagon attack on 9/11 is a bold-faced lie

Pentagon impact area on 9/11

Pentagon impact area on 9/11

Why would you continue to believe the 9/11 Pentagon attack was a terrorist attack when so many credible sources say it’s impossible for a 100 foot wide aircraft liner to leave an almost symmetrical 16 foot hole in the wake of its impact? It is totally absurd. A missile? Perhaps. Explosion? Perhaps. A Boeing 757 airliner, no, no and no!

If we believe the official explanation it means the aircraft would have had to fold back its wings then breach the outer wall and, according to  the pentagon, evaporate into thin air. The official story is that few engine parts or structural metals were found due to the speed of the aircraft. Sound vaguely familiar – you know the Twin Towers. How gullible do you have to be to swallow that lie?

Here are two videos that disprove the government’s explanation of what happened, just two documentaries out of hundreds, if not thousands. Use your brain, people. If 9/11 was a lie, then the war on terror is lie. If the war on terror is a lie, then the National Security Agency’s (NSA) justification to spy on every citizen in the United States in order to protect them is a lie. It also means that the Patriot Act which in effect reduces the Constitution to a meaningless historical document, is a lie. Add to that, the fact that just the day before, September 10, 2001, then Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, held a press conference announcing that over $2.3 trillion dollars of defense spending had been lost or were unaccounted for – wow! Conveniently, the part of the pentagon that was hit by the alleged Boeing 757, was the accounting department where several bookkeepers, accountants were killed and financial records were destroyed.

If the Constitution no longer protects our liberties, then our government is at war with the American people. If that is true, you have the duty to dispose of this administration (Obama knew 9/11 was an inside job and what does he do? He gives Bush total immunity from prosecution! Accessory after the fact.) as required and allowed under the Constitution of 1776. Beyond that, serious reform must take place in all branches of government to include the Executive, Judicial and Congressional branches.

“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, and to institute 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.”

The Declaration of Independence

Citizen soldiers from 13 colonies went up against the most powerful nation in the world at that time - The British Empire.

Citizen soldiers from 13 colonies went up against the most powerful nation in the world at that time – the British Empire – and won!

In political philosophy, the right of revolution (or right of rebellion) is the right or duty, previously stated throughout history, of the people of a nation to overthrow a government that acts against their common interests. Belief in this right has been used throughout history to justify various rebellions, including the English Civil War, the American Revolution and the French Revolution.

Now think about it. The Arab Spring revolutions (Egypt, Iran, Syria, Libya, to name a few), where politically oppressed, poor uneducated people had the courage to risk their lives in order to live in freedom should inspire us to do likewise, but we cannot even get out of the mindset that we are somehow immune from tyranny, that America is exceptional and that our government would never lie to us. Sad, very sad.

“Citizen Four,” is a revealing documentary about how Edward Snowden decided to become a whistleblower

Laura Poitras is an internationally recognized fimaker and artist who has received the George Polk Award. Her documentary, "My Country, My Country" was nominated for an Academy Award

Laura Poitras is an internationally recognized filmaker and artist who has received the George Polk Award. Her documentary, “My Country, My Country” was nominated for an Academy Award

Citizen Four (Citizen Four was Snowden’s code/handle when he communicated with the media and others) is a shocking and amazing documentary, according to those who attended the screening.

It was produced by Glenn Greenwald, the former Guardian UK reporter; and Laura Poitras, an American film maker. It was screened at the Stockport Film Festival – it is a two-hour film which will be released by the Weinstein Company on October 24, 2014.

I have tried to research the handle Snowden used and which is the title of the film, “Citizen Four” without definitive success, after all who can break into the mind of an intelligence expert and whistleblower?

However, what I did find is close associations with reasons for beng a good citizen, i.e., high school curriculums, Boy Scout principles, and Constitutional core values. That pretty much says it all.

It makes sense he would use various seemingly unrelated sources, yet related sources, combined into two worda, “citizen + Four or ‘for’ “.

It does not paint the Obama administration in a very good light, as Snowden explains how the government has violated privacy rights on a massive scale, intentionally, or by direction, and without visible remorse or excuse. To say otherwise, would say we have an incompetant in the White House – one recruited because he was a sexuality deviant, eloquent, a non-intellectual and easily subject to blackmail .

The video starts out with Laura Poitras, an American film maker, and one the recipients of Snowden’ s earlier revelations, reading a communique received by her and sent by Snowden at the initial stages of this incredible saga of government secrecy, unjustified surveillance of the American public and, in effect, the world.

Lindsay Mills, Edward Snowden’s long time girlfriend, is staying with Snowden in Moscow. She is a professional dancer and model.

“It’s instructive to see his evolution from eyeglass wearing nerd to contact lenses and moussed up hair sporting hero of his own thriller. It’s all very Tom Cruise.

Even the beautiful girlfriend sets up housekeeping with him in Moscow.

Nevertheless as the details of the NSA’s programs are revealed Snowden says, “This isn’t science fiction. It’s really happening.” Global Economic Analysis.

MK Ultra, a CIA mind control program used to control the public’s perception of reality

The following article succinctly describes a secret government program known as MK Ultra. It first came to light in 1975 during the Church Committee hearings led by Senator Frank Church.  The committee later morphed into the committee known as the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

The Church hearings investigated previously unknown and illegal activities of NSA (still in its infancy), the CIA and the FBI, all brought to light by truly patriotic whistle-blowers.

It’s really amazing, we’ve known about this mind control program since 1975, before most of you reading this were born, and yet nothing has changed. If this does not make you angry or at least “mildly” upset you are obviously incapable of protecting yourself, your family or friends You become an ally of your torturer. If this is true, you deserve the near extinction they threaten or the slavery that already exists yet you perceive not. You deserve the misery you experience every day of you life.

I am referring to the credit/debt chains of slavery that the “banksters” have imposed on everything from homes to cars, appliances, credit card purchases and even birth and death requirements.

As you well know, money, specially the use of it through easy credit, has been the single biggest cause of family instability and ultimately divorce for decades. If you look back at the Wall Street Bailout, it is easily the best example of the poor bailing-out the rich and to the tune of $700 billion, and that is a conservative estimate. It may approach twice that much if you consider the effect it had on banking regulations and consumer protection for future generatons.

As amazing as it may sound, not a single bank executive has been successfully prosecuted by the Department of Justice (the Bush/Obama/Holder protection plan for banks) as the result of the economic crisis which the banks caused by their illegal lending practices. They caused the problem and they were bailed out by their victims. Neat, huh?

Nonetheless, war, health coverage, poverty, stress and misery should not be our lot in life because human nature is based on an inherent desire to love, feel compassion and seek peace. We are programmed to do better folks, but someone is changing our minds for their own benefit.

It is our tormentors (the greedy elites) that want us to believe through age-old tactics like divide and conquer (racism, class and national pride) that want you to believe that you need their leadership to survive. It is only when mankind – the everyday citizen, you and me, those that work, love and play in an atmosphere of family values – unities that we can rid ourselves of these leeches, these burdens on the true producers of society. The Bushes, the Obamas, the Cheneys and the Kerrys. They should stand trial for their crimes against the American people.

The elite count on us not rebelling against them, showing compassion and loving even to them if discovered, you know the Christian ethic, turn the other cheek crap, forgive those that harm and hurt you. Who do you think introduced these “principles” of human morality? Of course, the psychopathic political elite who show no love or compassion because they are incapable of so doing so.

No, there is only one way to deal with an ebola-like diseases like greed, you take it out completely, quarantine it, burn it, and set up defenses that will minimize future outbreaks. I am sorry, its time to implement the ancient practice of purification the second coming of Final Judgement – It shall come with an unbriddled rath and purge the world of its sins and those that ractice such, those that go against the Law of One, humanity, equality and love. It will happen that those who consider themselves first today will become the last and the last, the meek ad humble will become the first in the eyes the ultimate creator of life force.

Congressional investigative committees in the 1970’s had more authority to supoena anyone they wanted and force testimony (or else jail), publically, almost without exception. It is not like the recent congressional hearing where Gen. James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, lied under oath, about NSA surveilance and yet nothing happened to him, not even a mention, a slap on the wrist, or legal contempt. Then came the Snowden revelations. As Snowden, himself said in one of his interviews, it was the Clapper testimony before Congress that convinced him to go public. The arrogance of the monster had finally found a champion.

The MK Ultra program was officially closed after the the hearings in 1975 due to the shocking revelations (some are still classified), however, whistleblowers as recently as 2013 (“the Super Soldier Program”) disclosed, it was never seriously in jeopardy of being dismantled and has only grown in size and scope, part of the terror and surveillance network coordinated by NSA which has now become a global operation.

You have hear me talk about the “New World Order” in my series, “You are in the dark about global politics” and the globalists who have a very detailed plan for its implementation, you will understand why I have introduced this topic at this time, as I have one more bomb shell to share with you. It’s almost extra-terrestrial in origin, no not  just almost, it is.

Illunimati key players in the United States, Dick Cheney, Henry Kissinger, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Sen. Robert Byrd (deceased), Gerald Ford (deceased), Barack Obama, and George W. Bush. All of these have used Mk Ultra victims as sex slaves, couriers and assassins.

Robert Byrd (deceased), Gerald Ford (deceased), Barack Obama, and George W. Bush. All of these have used Mk Ultra victims for sex slaves, couriers or assassins. This is just in the U.S., each continent has its “Illuminati masters”

(I have been aware for some time I am moving up on the list of “dissenters” who need to be silenced. Talking about the “alien influence” is a taboo even in the Above Top Secret levels. They are called the “Tall Whites” associated with the Great White Brotherhood of the Theosophical Society origin. It’s OK, I’m ready for them.)

All I can say at present is that what I aware it requires a re-education program (deprogamming in terms of mind control) that frees your mind and realizes your true potential as a loving, creative life form, specifically destined to develop a template for life forms throughout the universe.

Both video presentations presented below talk about the New World Order, so you should make the connection between this mind control program and the overall agenda of creating a one world government – it’s real, dear friend and reader.

If you don’t see it, you have been dumbed down too much. I can show how to de-dumb if you are interested.

What you are about to read and hear is but a single facet, a mini-view of this massive mind control program that oriniated with the Nazi experiments in mind manipulation. It involves the controlled mainstream media (CNN, ABC, CBS, et. al.), educational “reforms” (Common Core), the court systems (police, federal agencies, criminal & civil law .. all the way up to the steps of that supposed bastion of justice, the United States Supreme Court), and lastly, the film and television industries (particularly children’s programming).

You would not believe the truth behind the Michael Jackson story – a talented child, abused by his parents, later his handlers who then became the abuser himself justifying it as an altruistic love in the music for We are the World.) You may have hear he knew when he was to be killed.

When your usefulness to the New World Order and the Illuminati is over, your life if over. Poor soul, he was a bubble boy, sterilzed, wanting desperately wanting to get out of the bubble, but unable due to his programming as an infant. Michael Jackson was a victim of MK Ultra, like so many musical artists before him and afterwards. You see, the target is our children, so protect them always.

If your children are not acting per your values and rules, check on what they are watching while you are away or what your child’s teachers are imparting in class per federal curriculums like Common Core Standards (creativity and “fun” is out and rote memorization for federal tests is in). Cut back on the TV, question your child’s teachers, and go out into nature, camping, visiting family and appreciating the arts. You are being controlled without knowing it. Get out of the mind control environment.

Think about it, you are told to consume 24/7 (it makes the rich, richer), become fearful and believe that the world’s radicals are out to get you, when in effect, it is our fascist leaders, the members of the Illuminati pictured above, who want us to approve of their take-over of the world through false flag attacks on us and our allies. (9/11 was the first of many massive attacks on Americans so our “leaders” can whip us into a fighting frenzy, like Bush, Jr. did to justify invading Iraq.)

You may recognize the similarities of Ms O’Brien and Ms. Taylor’s comments to the film series starring Matt Damon called Bourne Identity – the plot line being a trauma based programming that permits you to do what your conscious mind would not allow. Essentially, the mind is compartmentalized and multiple personalities are created, each unaware of the other – The original MK Ultra secret weapon, that’s how far back this goes i.e., Frank Sinatra’s role in the “Manchurian Candidate.”

Well here it goes again, I hope you can swim and hold your breath under water.

Sex Slaves Paint a Horrifying Picture by Henry Makow Ph.D.

Cathy O'Brien

Cathy O’Brien

Brice Taylor

Brice Taylor

“Two women tortured, brainwashed and prostituted by the Illuminati paint a disturbing picture of how the world is really run. Both say they were prostituted to world leaders as children. They are Brice Taylor, author of Thanks for the Memories (1999) and Cathy O’Brien (with Mark Phillips) author of Trance-Formation of America (1995).

These books are consistent and confirm the revelations of Illuminati programmer “Svali” (“Illuminati Defector Details Pervasive Conspiracy.”) If you want to understand the world, you must read these three women. Essentially every country is run by a shadow government, which owes its loyalty to the New World Order controlled by a 13-member Illuminati Council.

According to Svali, “each ruler represents an area of Europe held under its sway; and each one represents an ancient dynastic bloodline.” (JS note: You may have read about how many of our presidents are distantly related to the royal families in England and its true, you have to be in the bloodline) American leaders are often direct descendants, whether legitimate or illegitimate they must be in one of these bloodlines, as it Obama.

According to Brice Taylor, Henry Kissinger (JS: Remember he was Bush Jr.’s first choice to head the 9-11 Commission. What a con!) is the CEO for the Illuminati who would naturally prefer to remain in the shadows. After some key senator objected and asked to have him reveal his clients, did he step down as key investigator of the 9/11 attack. It would have been the equivalent of the coyote guarding the hen house.

All our political leaders, including John Kennedy, (Kennedy had a change of heart once in office and as a consequence was murdered by the a coalition or the CIA, FBI, Mafia and Vice President Johnson who hated the Kennedy family) are chosen by their moral frailties, blackmail-ability, and willingness to advance the Illuminati plan. Strings are pulled and they mysteriously rise to prominence.

It doesn’t matter which party they belong to. They secretly serve the “New World Order cause,” meaning slavery of the “supposedly”  ignorant masses by the more intelligent elit;, ya right, ass holes!!). Many of the sex slaves processed by the CIA are products of a life that may include pedophilia, drug trafficking and consumption, child pornography, bestiality, mind control, rape, torture, satanic rituals and human sacrifices. They are given many opportunities to indulge their vices, which ensures continued obedience and solidarity. Drug trafficking, white slavery, prostitution and pornography finance secret New World Order programs. Elements of the CIA, FBI, Coast Guard, Military, and police are all involved, as is the Mafia.

This information may upset or enrage some people. I could not bring myself to read these books for over two years. The torture and depravity they describe is excruciating. My mental filters would not accept it. Writing about it is difficult. The public has a child-like trust in its leaders, especially Presidents. How could our publically elected representatives betray us. Easy, it’s called fraudulent electronic voting.

The charge that they really belong to a sadistic, criminal, traitorous syndicate is a betrayal on the scale of incest. We respond with denial and anger. We don’t want to admit that we are dupes and our perception of reality is false. Dumbed down, we are incapable of common sense and concerted action. We refuse to contemplate what they may have in store. Better to ridicule the messenger and change the channel.

These women could have remained silent and found some much deserved peace and happiness. Instead they are taking great risks to warn humanity of the danger. Are we going to listen?

SEX ROBOTS

Both Cathy O’Brien and Brice Taylor were victims of the CIA’s MK-Ultra mind control program, which is designed to create human robots to serve functions ranging from prostitutes to couriers to killers. Their families belong to secret satanic sects that sexually abuse their children generation after generation to produce the trauma which causes multiple personality disorder. In this traumatized condition the mind splinters into many compartments.

Victims exhibit extraordinary powers of recollection and endurance and can be easily programmed to do anything, including photographic memories and improved physical stamina. These cults operate within many organizations including charities, churches, boys and girls clubs, Masonic lodges, day cares and private schools. Why? They prefer children.

Society is being subjected to the same type of trauma-based programming using constant war and atrocities that include Auschwitz, Hiroshima, the Kennedy assassinations, Sept. 11 and Abu Ghraib. We are being collectively desensitized on the one hand, and programmed to focus on sex, violence, trivia and empty social rituals on the other.

Both women (Cathy O’Brien and Brice Tayor) were sexually abused as babies. Cathy O’Brien was often given her father’s penis instead of a baby bottle. Congressman Gerald Ford, who was involved in drug trafficking and child pornography with the Michigan mob, initiated her into the MK Ultra Program. (No wonder Betty Ford drank and used prescription drugs – her husband was a criminal acting as a president.)

O’Brien’s father prostituted her as a child to friends, business associates and politicians as a favor, or for money. She also appeared in numerous child pornography and bestiality films.

When you read this book you will understand who Jon Benet Ramsay was and why there was no resolution to her murder.

DEPRAVITY

O’Brien (born in 1957) says she serviced an array of politicians including the cocaine snorting Clintons (A Three-Way involving Bill and Hillary), Ronald Reagan, George H.W Bush, Dick Cheney, Pierre Trudeau, Brian Mulroney, Governors Lamar Alexander and Richard Thornburgh, Bill Bennett (author of The Book of Virtues), Senators Patrick Leahy (wow!), Robert Byrd (O’Brien’s handler) and Republicn Senator Arlen Spector (he later became a democrat but he still was a Illuminati servant). Notable by their absence were Jimmy Carter and Richard Nixon. Taylor (born in 1951) slept with JFK and LBJ as a preteen and teenager. When O’Brien’s daughter Kelly was born in 1980, they often worked as a mother-daughter team.

George H.W. Bush particularly liked Kelly.

(JS note: Bush senior’s new “pet” is Robin Meade of CNN’s HLN morning news anchor, she is a former Miss Ohio and very personable. If you search the Internet you find a video of her going into a trance, perhaps accidentally triggered by sound, word or light (a method of shifting consciousness and a typical MK Ultra signature), and video another of her parachuting with George H.W. Bush on his last birtday. She is a talented TV host and singer married with a child – how and why would she become friends with a former president of the United States.

During WWII, Bush senior was a Navypilot of an Avenger bomber, and after taking some anti-aitcraft fire over a Japanese target parachuted out of his aircraft not knowing whether his crew made it out or were alive. Although Bush’s account resulted in him being awarded the Distinquished Flying Cross, some of his contemporaries question his story and felt he panicked and parachuted our without concern for his crew. It makes one wonder why his obsession with parachuting on his birthdays?)

“Referring to George Bush, Dick Cheney told O’Brien: “A ‘Vice’ President is just that, an undercover agent taking control of the drug industry for the President.” Cheney is not a pederast (JS: homosexual relationship between an adult male and a pubescent or adolescent male) because his large genitals horrify children.

George Bush Jr. was present on one occasion but is not accused. O’Brien was rescued by Mark Philips in 1988. It is likely that Bush Jr. is involved in this mind control, drug and sex scene. Rumors swirl around him and his behavior is erratic. Remember the pretzel incident?

In 2003, Margie Schroedinger a woman who was suing the President for rape “committed suicide.” (JS note: George W. Bush is going to be the “scape goat” if things go bad for the globalists and it will be his father, George H.W. Bush, who will sacrifice his own son to protect tne NWO agenda. Junior is just too stupid to avoid the blame. Actually, he is the least to blame as he was brain washed as a kid and was told to obey and do as he was told. My hope is that he will grow some balls and identify the real culprits.)

Former Sen. Robert Byrd, who used to control the nation’s purse strings, justified to Cathy his involvement in drug distribution, pornography and white slavery as a means of “gaining control of all illegal activity world wide” to fund Black Budget covert activity that would “bring about world peace through world dominance and total control.” He said, “95% of the people want to be led by the 5%.”

Proof is that “the 95% do not want to know what really goes on in government.” Byrd believed that mankind must take a “giant step in evolution through creating a superior race.” Byrd believed in “the annihilation of underprivileged nations and cultures” through genocide and genetic engineering to breed “the more gifted, the blonds of the world.” O’Brien visited a series secret paramilitary compounds throughout the US like one at Mount Shasta in California.

“I learned that this not-so-secret military buildup consisted of special forces trained robotic soldiers, black unmarked helicopters, and top secret weaponry including electromagnetic mind control equipment.” At these compounds O’Brien and her daughter were often hunted like wild animals, tortured and raped for the amusement of CIA, military and politicians. O’Brien worked as a sex slave at Bohemian Grove, the elite’s perversion playground on the Russian River in California. She says the place is wired for video in order to capture world leaders in compromising acts. “Slaves of advancing age or with failing programming were ritualistically murdered at random in the wooded grounds of Bohemian Grove.

There was a room of shackles and tortures, an opium den, ritualistic sex altars, group orgy rooms…I was used as a “rag doll” in the toy store and as a urinal in the “golden arches” room.” Strangely, mind controlled sex slaves are used as diplomats and lobbyists as well. At a Governor’s Conference, Secretary of Education Bill Bennett advised O’Brien to “persuade these Governors at their weakest moment, bring them to their knees while you are on yours, and convince them that global education [the Education 2000 initiative] is the way to the future if there is to be any future at all.” O’Brien’s book is available directly from her. It is also available from Amazon.com (search Mark Phillips).

CONCLUDING REMARKS

Why did the Illuminati let these women live? I don’t know. I don’t know how many they have killed.

Perhaps they want the truth to be known gradually. Perhaps they have a shred of decency left. Perhaps they are confident of their power, and think these women won’t be believed.

As the Kennedy assassination and 9-11 suggest, the United States (and most countries) have been totally subverted by a Luciferian (Satanic) international criminal elite. The role of politicians, media and education is to keep the sheep deluded and distracted while the elite stealthily advances its goal of world tyranny. Western society today is a massive fraud.

It is tragic that brave young American soldiers have been brainwashed to believe they are advancing freedom when the opposite is the case. A reader tells me that this article is treason. Is it patriotic to obey traitors?

The populations of the West are spoiled. They are self-centered and complacent. How can things be so bad when we have so much? We don’t realize that the goodies can be taken away in a second by tightening credit and a simple declaration of Martial Law. We don’t realize that we are being distracted while our political and social institutions, our bulwarks against tyranny, are being infiltrated and dismantled.

Our children are being brainwashed even more than we are. Don’t ask, “What can we do?” That is conditioned helplessness. Figure it out. Take responsibility. Share your ideas with others. There is no quick fix to this mess, but we must stand up for truth as we know it.

They may have the weapons of mass deception, but, as Cathy O’Brien often says, ‘the truth doesn’t go away.'”

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)


Snowden asylum in Germany?

download (13)“Revelations by Edward Snowden about U.S. surveillance continue to shake Germany more than one year after he came forward as an National Security Agency whistleblower. Reports based on Snowden’s leaks revealed vast NSA spying in Germany, including on Chancellor Angela Merkel’s peronal cellphone. Last week the German government canceled its contract with the U.S. telecommunications firm Verizon. Verizon has been providing network infrastructure for the German government’s Berlin-Bonn network, used for communication between government ministries, since 2010. Meanwhile, the German Parliament is continuing to conduct an inquiry into spying by the NSA and German secret services. Some German lawmakers are calling on Merkel’s government to grant Snowden asylum.”

While the Green Party in Germany favors a Snowden asylym, Merkel’s party is hesitant to grant that asylum due to the intimate relationship between the NSA and the German intelligence agencies suggesting how much power surveillance apparatuses have in both countries – black-mail. Merkel does like U.S. surveilance of anti-government forces in Germany but does not like her personal life revealed.

Police advised by Obama Administration not to reveal new spy technology

The US government doesn’t want you to know how the cops are tracking you.

download (6)Thought the NSA was bad? Local police and the Obama administration are hoovering cellphone location data from inside your house, and a crackdown could lead to surveillance reform.

What follows is an an article from theguardian.com, Saturday 14 June 2014 by Trevor Timm.  Obama has told the American public in the wake of the Snowden revelations that his administration will use a reasoned and open approach in future surveillance.  Guess what?  He lies.  Read on.

All across America, from Florida to Colorado and back again, the country’s increasingly militarized local police forces are using a secretive technology to vacuum up cellphone data from entire neighborhoods – including from people inside their own homes – almost always without a warrant. This week, numerous investigations by major news agencies revealed the US government is now taking unbelievable measures to make sure you never find out about it. But a landmark court ruling for privacy could soon force the cops to stop, even as the Obama administration fights to keep its latest tool for mass surveillance a secret.

So-called International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) catchers – more often called their popular brand name, “Stingray” – have long been the talk of the civil liberties crowd, for the indiscriminate and invasive way these roving devices conduct surveillance. Essentially, Stingrays act as fake cellphone towers (usually mounted in a mobile police truck) that police can point toward any given area and force every phone in the area to connect to it. So even if you’re not making a call, police can find out who you’ve been calling, and for how long, as well as your precise location. As Nathan Freed Wessler of the ACLU explained on Thursday, “In one Florida case, a police officer explained in court that he ‘quite literally stood in front of every door and window’ with his stingray to track the phones inside a large apartment complex.”

Yet these mass surveillance devices have largely stayed out of the public eye, thanks to the federal government and local police refusing to disclose they’re using them in the first place – sometimes, shockingly, even to judges. As the Associated Press reported this week, the Obama administration has been telling local cops to keep information on Stingrays secret from members of the news media, even when it seems like local public records laws would mandate their disclosure. The AP noted:

Federal involvement in local open records proceedings is unusual. It comes at a time when President Barack Obama has said he welcomes a debate on government surveillance and called for more transparency about spying in the wake of disclosures about classified federal surveillance programs.

Some of the government’s tactics to hide Stingray from journalists and the public have been downright disturbing. After the ACLU had filed a records request for information on Stingrays, the local police force initially told them that, yes, they had the documents and to come on down to the station to look at them. But just before an ACLU rep was due to arrive, US Marshals seized the records and hid them away at another location, in what Wessler describes as “a blatant violation of state open-records laws”.

The federal government has used various other tactics around the country to prevent disclosure of similar information.

USA Today also published a significant nationwide investigation about the Stingray problem, as well as what are known as “cellphone tower dumps”. When police agencies don’t have Stingrays at their disposal, they can go to cell phone providers to get the cellphone location information of everyone who has connected to a specific cell tower (which inevitably includes thousands of innocent people). The paper’s John Kelly reported that one Colorado case shows cellphone tower dumps got police “‘cellular telephone numbers, including the date, time and duration of any calls,’ as well as numbers and location data for all phones that connected to the towers searched, whether calls were being made or not.”

It’s scary enough to think that the NSA is collecting so much information, but this mass location and metadata tracking at the local level all may be about to change. This week, the ACLU won a historic victory in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals (serving Florida, Alabama and Georgia), which ruled that police need to get a warrant from a judge before extracting from your cellphone the location data obtained by way of a cell tower. This ruling will apply whether cops are going after one person, the whole tower and, one can assume, Stingrays. (The case was also argued by the aforementioned Wessler, who clearly is this month’s civil liberties Most Valuable Player.)

This case has huge implications, and not just for the Stingrays secretly being used in Florida. It virtually guarantees the US supreme court will soon have to tackle the larger cellphone location question in some form – and whether police across the country have to finally start getting a warrant to find out where your precise location for days or weeks at a time. But as Stanford law professor Jennifer Granick wrote on Friday, it could also have an impact on NSA spying, which relies on the theory that indiscriminately collecting metadata is fair game until a court says otherwise.

You may be asking: how, exactly, are the local cops getting their hands on such advanced military technology? Well, the feds are, in many cases, giving away the technology for free. When the US government is not loaning police agencies their own Stingrays, the Defense Department and Homeland Security are giving federal grants to cops, which allow departments to purchase the gear at the cost of $400,000 a pop from defense contractors like Harris Corporation, which makes the Stingray brand.

Speaking of which, the New York Times’s Matt Apuzzo wrote another essential, overlooked story this week detailing all of the other free military gear – like machine guns, armored vehicles and aircraft – that police are receiving from the Pentagon. An example from his story about the militarization of what used to be routine police activities also comes from Florida: “In Florida in 2010, officers in SWAT gear and with guns drawn carried out raids on barbershops that mostly led only to charges of ‘barbering without a license.'”

Like Stingrays, and the NSA’s phone dragnet before them, the militarization of America’s local cops is a phenomenon that’s only now getting widespread attention. As journalist Radley Balko, who wrote a seminal book on the subject two years ago, said this week, the Obama administration could easily limit these tactics to “cases of legitimate national security” – but has clearly chosen not to.

No matter how much President Obama talks about how he has “maintained a healthy skepticism toward our surveillance programs”, it seems the Most Transparent Administration in American History™ remains much more interested in maintaining a healthy, top-secret surveillance state.

Al Gore: Snowden Revealed Crimes ‘Way More Serious’ Than Any He Committed
Former vice president says NSA overreach poses “a threat to democracy.”

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore on Tuesday said that Edward Snowden’s revelations showed the NSA’s “threat to democracy” and revealed violations by the agency “way more serious” than any crime committed by the whistleblower.

Gore made the comments at the Southland Conference in Nashville where he was a speaker.

Asked about his reaction when the revelations of vast NSA surveillance began to come out, Gore said he felt “dismay that it had gone as far as it had,” and said the overreach was a “threat to democracy.”

“If any of us are put in a position where we have to self-censor and think twice about what we write in an email, or what we click on for fear that somebody reading a record of this may misunderstand the reason why we looked up some disease or something. . . that kills democracy,” he said.

Snowden emphasized this point as well, saying in a live Q&A in January, “Under observation, we act less free, which means we effectively are less free.”

“We need to restore the freedom of the internet, give the national security authorities the right to guard against legitimate threats,” Gore continued.

But “if you’re looking for a needle in a haystack,” Gore said, referencing the metaphor from NSA expert James Bamford, “your best option is not to go out and collect a lot more hay and pile it on top of the haystack.” Rather, common sense can be used to prioritize, he said, rather than using the collect-it-all approach currently taken.

Asked the oft-repeated question, “Is Edward Snowden a traitor or a hero?” Gore said he, like most people, doesn’t put the former NSA worker in either category.

“We need to restore the freedom of the internet.”
—Al GoreBut “if you set up a spectrum, I would push it more away from the traitor side and I’ll tell you why. He clearly violated the law, so you can’t say, ‘OK, what he did is alright.’ It’s not. But what he revealed in the course of violating important laws, included violations of the United States Constitution that were way more serious than the crimes that he committed.”

“In the course of violating important laws, he also provided an important service,” Gore said. “We did need to know how far this has gone,” he said, referring to the NSA’s vast surveillance.

Like World Wide Web creator Tim Berners-Lee, Gore called for an online Magna Carta.

“Back in the history of our freedoms, before the United States of America was founded, the Magna Carta was one of the great milestones, and business leaders—merchants—were right at the center of drawing up the Magna Carta. I believe that some of the most important digital businesses ought to be in a position to work with ‘we the people’ in asserting a digital Magna Carta that does provide protection for a form of net neutrality that’s not simplistic but really does work and guarantees our freedoms.”

“But in order for businesses to play the role they should play,” he continued, “they need to pay attention to correcting some of these gross abuses of individual privacy that are ongoing in the business-sphere.”

Gore’s comments were first reported by PandoDaily, which also co-sponsored the conference. Pando also uploaded these videos of Gore making the comments:


Obama’s message to America on Memorial Day

Following is President Obama’s Memorial Day’s message from the White House concerning the sacrifice made by those who answered the call to serve that we might enjoy the benefits of a Democracy.

uncle_barack_obama_i_want_you_on_my_team_poster-p228126975647840756tdcp_400I must tell you that the last and only war in which we defended the American way of life was World War II. Hitler had threatened to conquer the world and without our intervention he would have succeeded.

Since then, America’s leaders have abdicated their responsibility as the leaders of the free world. Instead of strengthening our allies, aiding the world’s poor underdeveloped countries and making peace with our historical enemies like Russia and China, they decided that the world needed another Roman Empire. An empire that creates dependency through debt, that interferes with the internal affairs of sovereign nations, kills, without due process, those it merely suspects of being anti-American through covert means and more direct means like killer drones. We no longer are a nation of laws but of pre-emptive aggression, revenge and arrogance, all the earmarks of a global empire.

So when President Obama says we should honor the men and women who served in our military what he really means we should honor them for having fought false, politically motivated wars that benefited no one but the military contractors and the legislators that supported their graft and corruption. Does a president that believes in efficiency and curbing waste allow the Pentagon to build a new $5.1 million 18-hole golf course at Andrews Air Force Base in suburban Maryland, which already has two? And this was just last year.

The bodies of 28 veterans at the L.A. County Morgue were finally moved Friday for burial to the Riverside National Cemetery.

Over the years we have seen how this president says one thing and does another. Did we really have to go into Afghanistan? Did we close Guantanamo as promised? Did we continue to torture in secret prisons oversees? Did we protect the privacy of our emails, phone calls and Internet use? Did our government use the IRS to make it difficult for conservative groups to gain non-profit status? Did Obama blatantly go back on his promise to protect whistle blowers and become the only president in our history to prosecute honest and concerned whistle blowers more than all previous president’s combined? I could go on but you get the message.

I have come to learn that Barack Obama to say he will do something positive for the American people really means he will do the opposite. In other words, if he says he will assure that the treatment of veterans by the Veteran Affairs healthcare system will get better, he really means is that budget cuts for veterans are in the works and anyone who is caught providing poor quality care to our nation’s war veterans will go unpunished.

Do you call 28 veterans in the morgue waiting for burial for over a year, quality care? Appointments for vital care a year in the waiting?

How much did the FBI know about the Boston Marathon Bombing suspects and when did it know it?

Did you know that the Boston FBI interviewed and investigated the principal in the Boston Marathon Bombing (BMB), Tamerlan Tsarnaev, on counterterrorism-related matters just two years earlier?

Did you also know that the in early March 2011, the Russian security service (FSB) sent a warning to the FBI office in Moscow that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a “follower of radical Islam” who had “changed drastically since 2010.”

FBI MARATHON

The city of Boston was placed under Martial Law after the bombings

The communication from Russian Intelligence further informed the FBI that and Tamerlan was preparing to travel to Russia’s turbulent Caucasus region to connect with underground militant groups. The Russians also expressed interest in Tamerlan’s mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaev, and were concerned that mother and son were very religious and strong believers, and could become militants if they returned to Russia. The FBI has refused to reveal the other contents of the letter from the FSB.

The FBI also set up surveillance outside Tamerlan’s Cambridge, Mass., apartment. According to an anonymous official briefed on the matter, the bureau never entered the dwelling but did some light, intermittent surveillance, less than full-scale surveillance, but more than driving by the house. According to anonymous US officials, the effort yielded nothing to substantiate Russia’s suspicions, and on June 24, 2011, the FBI closed its assessment without adding a single derogatory note to Tamerlan’s file.

thD511SKAEAfter CBS broke the story on April 19, 2013, the FBI went into damage control and minimized the importance of this “intel.”   It is important to note that throughout this period the federal budget was threatened by sequestration, a mandatory budget reduction that affected all government agencies, except the Intelligence giants, the FBI, CIA, and NSA. Despite sequestration cuts for most agencies, the FBI’s 2013/14 enacted fiscal budget of $8.3billion was actually $200 million greater than the previous year.

A year after the BMB, the following details come into focus.  You be the judge of whether the FBI was complicit in what many believe is another example of the government lying to the American public to pursue their secret agendas.

The Boston FBI conducted a poor and reprehensible 3-month investigation of Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2011 and dubiously missed significant evidence that showed Tamerlan’s threatening Islamic radicalization at that time.

  • Contrary to FBI statements, the 2011 Russian warning “letters” regarding Tamerlan (one letter also included information on Ibragim Todashev) were significant in content and showed that Tamerlan had contacts with foreign Islamic militants/agents, was visiting jihadist websites, and was looking to join jihadist groups in the Caucasus  and the Palestinian (Occupied) Territories.
  • Contrary to FBI statements, evidence available at the time of Tamerlan’s 2011 investigation appears to have provided sufficient probable cause to obtain FISA warrants that would have probably allowed for NSA wiretaps and other more encompassing surveillance tools.
  • The FBI interviewed Tamerlan at least a couple of times and conducted surveillance outside his Cambridge apartment. At the time of the BMB, Tamerlan should have been a prime suspect and the FBI should have had photographs of Tamerlan that would have allowed them to identify him from the BMB video utilizing the FBI’s state of the art face recognition lab
  • Inconceivable and rudimentary human errors (not systemic) were made in Tamerlan’s terrorism watchlisting process which have been covered-up and obfuscated by US intelligence and the unquestioning MSM.
  • The FBI and CIA are have given the exact the same excuses for their BMB intelligence failures that they gave for their many 9/11 intelligence failures while providing little to no transparency or accountability
  • Although never reported in the MSM, Russia’s FSB vehemently deny that the FBI ever asked them for additional information on Tamerlan. Russia asked the FBI to provide them with contact names and dates but there’s no evidence the FBI ever provided the information.
  • The CIA’s terrorism watchlisting criteria for Tamerlan at a minimum suspected him of preparing for terrorist-related activities and the watchlist entry stated that he might be “armed and dangerous.” These facts contradict the FBI’s findings that Tamerlan did not even have one derogatory terrorism issue.
  • The FBI not only failed to alert local and state law enforcement officials in the Joint Terrorism Task Force about Tamerlan’s terrorism investigation but also did not even check with these authorities to see if they might have had information on Tamerlan, just one of the many indications of the very poor FBI investigation.
  • There’s evidence that the Russian FSB contacted US intelligence around November 2012 and informed them that Tamerlan had met with Islamic militants while in Dagestan in the first half 2012. This should have given US intelligence the right and the immediate need to reopen their investigation of Tamerlan.
  • There’s strong evidence that Tamerlan’s Uncle Ruslan Tsarni, who established the narrative of Tamerlan’s Islamic radicalization, had CIA and Chechen rebel connections, but this was not investigated by the FBI.
  • The three investigations conducted into the BMB intelligence failures are pitiful shams with little transparency and false claims that do not address most of the critical issues and questions on the BMB’s intelligence failures.

The Boston Marathon Bombing One Year Later: A Detailed Look


NSA tracks innocent citizens, not terrorists, to what ends?

snowEdward Snowden was invited by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe to address the activities of NSA in Europe and worldwide. In this presentation he revealed NSA’s monitoring of general population behavior via computer web cams, cables and malware. The technology exists now to track an individual’s sexual habits, orientation, travel movements, donations made, with whom individuals share pictures of their children, even what websites an individual might visit and recorded and analyzed using algorithms designed for such purposes.

Much of the information is made available to law enforcement agencies at a national, state and local level as a means of enforcing laws within their areas of jurisdiction. It should be noted that these activities are as far removed from terrorist activities as the North Pole is from the Sahara Desert.

He emphasized the point that there currently exists no legal means to challenge mass surveillance, a point that was followed by a plea to all nations concerned with privacy to develop international standards to prevent the abuse of this technology. This is a global problem requiring global solutions.

The argument for the “UFO Problem” and its relation to the National Security State

It is difficult to point to anyone individual who has the credentials and expertise to discuss the “alien problem,” but Richard Dolan comes close.

Uploaded to YouTube on Nov 11, 2010: LIVE at the 6th Annual X-Conference, held in 2010, Historian Richard Dolan presents an analysis of the patterns of UFO secrecy since the 1940s. Focusing on the national security aspects of the UFO phenomenon, Dolan explains how it was a key factor in the creation of the U.S. “black budget,” and hence a subversion of the traditional American political system. He also discusses the paradox of how an end to UFO secrecy is both impossible and inevitable. Finally, he outlines the challenges and probable shape of a post-disclosure world. In other words, “life after contact.”


Germany might begin counter-espionage measures aimed at the U.S.

Angela Merkel and her cell phone

Ever since Edward Snowden’s revelations about U.S. spying on German officials and German Companies, not to mention their taps on German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s personal cell phone, German authorities have submitted requests to U.S. Intelligence representatives and Congressional oversight committees to disclose the extent of their surveillance activities and documentation guiding their intelligence activities on Western Allies. However, their requests have resulted in no substantial response and Obama himself has discounted any “no-spy” agreements with our European partners.

As a result, Germany’ new government coalition has been pressuring Merkel to develop counter-intelligent efforts against the United States and other allies. The following is an excerpt from Spiegal Online International dated February 18, 2014.

“We have to protect ourselves, no matter where the threats come from,” agrees SPD domestic affairs expert Michael Hartmann. And even the Christian Social Union, which is traditionally very friendly towards the US, is concerned. “One can’t ignore allied countries,” says Stephan Mayer, the domestic affairs spokesman for the CSU, which shares power in government and is the Bavarian sister party to Merkel’s CDU.

The plans for monitoring allies are already well developed. Section 4 in the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, where just 100 specialists had been employed, is to be significantly expanded. In addition, a form of “observation-light” is planned: Western partners won’t be the targets of the full spectrum of intelligence tools available, such as telephone monitoring, source acquisition or direct observation. But German authorities will do all they can to keep an eye on the goings on at embassies and consulates, learn more about who works there and determine the extent of their technical capabilities. In short, they want to know, for example, if German government offices are being monitored by the US Embassy in Berlin.

Hans-Georg Maassen, head of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution, has already gotten started. He has requested that the US Embassy supply names and data pertaining to intelligence personnel who are in Germany with diplomatic accreditation. He has also asked for information regarding private companies the US cooperates with in Germany on intelligence issues. According to sources in the Office of the Protection of the Constitution, the agency already has a better overview of what is going on than it did just a few months ago.”

LinkStriking Back: Germany Considering Counter-espionage Against US

Apparently, the arrogance of the United States has started to create a climate that may not only take us into another cold war, but a cold world war to include not only Russia but our own Allies. I don’t know about you, but something is more than drastically wrong when we do no respected the sovereignty of not only Third World countries, but modern developed countries we used to call friends.

While one can argue that all countries spy on each other, the difference between spying on targets where our national interests are at stake and blatant spying on everyone and everything is a different story. Is spying on every American citizen necessary? I thought we still had the ability to tell the difference between a terrorist and grandma and grandpa, and our friends and enemies.

The argument for impeachment grows with every violation of human rights by this administration.

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is a political statement about Obama Kill List, say directors

captain-america-the-winter-soldierA MotherJones article by Asawin Suebsaeng dated Friday, April 4, 2014 starts out:

“There are currently no plans to screen Captain America: The Winter Soldier at the White House, as far as the film’s directors have heard. But if it makes it to the White House family theater, President Obama would be watching one big-budget, action-packed, and Scarlett Johansson-starring critique of his controversial terror-suspect “kill list.”

This isn’t me reading things into a mainstream comic-book movie. It’s what the directors themselves will tell you.

“[Marvel] said they wanted to make a political thriller,” Joe Russo, who directed the film with his brother Anthony, tells Mother Jones. “So we said if you want to make a political thriller, all the great political thrillers have very current issues in them that reflect the anxiety of the audience…That gives it an immediacy, it makes it relevant. So [Anthony] and I just looked at the issues that were causing anxiety for us, because we read a lot and are politically inclined. And a lot of that stuff had to do with civil liberties issues, drone strikes, the president’s kill list, preemptive technology”—all themes they worked into the film, working closely with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.”

LA Times: Box office -“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” soars.

It is interesting that both liberals and conservatives are flocking to the movie, showing a rare instance of agreement about our government’s unbridled use of pre-emptive “murder” anywhere in the world.  Forget the rule of law where people are innocent until proven guilty.  We just have to trust that the NSA, DOJ and Mr. Obama have their facts in order and that anyone that is on a kill list is really guilty – Judge, Jury and Executioner.

How long can you tolerate this?

Folks, you have no privacy, so get over it

One of my favorite T.V. programs is “Person of Interest,” a seemingly futuristic story about an artificial intelligence computer that can network every electronic devise on the planet, follow an individual in real time, hear their voice and even manipulate events in which the individual might engage.

Well, I am here to tell you that time is now and has been here for quite some time. The following video is probably the best presentation I have seen which places the whole Snowden/NSA controversy in another perspective.

Welcome to your Orwellian world.


People of the world, the time for action is now!

Simply ‘Stop Spying’: Critics Slam NSA Reform Proposals

A Common Dreams story published yesterday said it best with regard to the current negotiations between the Obama Administration and the House Intelligence Committee – “Simply stop spying!”

Common Dreams’ reporter/writer, Lauren McCauley, writes:

According to information provided to the New York Times by unnamed “senior White House officials,” the Obama administration is proposing to end the NSA’s mass collection of phone records by instead requesting them from phone companies on an individual, court-approved basis. The companies would not be required to retain records longer than they already do.

Though little information has yet to be released, many critics of the NSA’s vast dragnet operations say the proposal clearly does not go far enough.

“The administration doesn’t seem to be contemplating new limits on the agency’s authority to retain, analyze or disseminate the records it collects,” writes Jameel Jaffer, director of the National Security Project of the American Civil Liberties Union. “And it isn’t proposing to end bulk collection of all records – just the bulk collection of phone records.”

“Given all the various ways that the NSA has overreached, piecemeal change is not enough,” writes Cindy Cohn and Mark M. Jaycox of the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Noting that an existing bill—the “USA Freedom Act” by Judiciary Committee chairs Sen. Patrick Leahy and Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner—does much of what Obama proposed and more, Cohn and Jaycox say, instead of paltry legislation, “we urge the Administration to simply decide that it will stop misusing section 215 of the Patriot Act and section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act and Executive Order 12333 and whatever else it is secretly relying on to stop mass spying.”

Also today, the leaders of the House Intelligence Committee, Reps Mike Rogers (D-Mich.) and Dutch Ruppersberger (R-Md.), announced a bill titled the “End Bulk Collection Act.”

Given an advance copy of the House proposal, the Guardian’s Trevor Timm notes that the law effectively expands NSA’s surveillance power. “The devil is in the details,” he writes, adding that “when it comes to the National Security Agency’s unique ability to twist and distort the English language, the devil tends to wrap his horns around every word.”

Timm explains:

A judge would reportedly not have to approve the collection beforehand, and the language suggests the government could obtain the phone records on citizens at least two “hops” away from the suspect, meaning if you talked to someone who talked to a suspect, your records could be searched by the NSA. Coupled with the expanded “foreign power” language, this kind of law coming out of Congress could, arguably, allow the NSA to analyze more data of innocent Americans than it could before.

congress

Why is Congress so ineffective? Follow the money.

I suggest the everyone, including those not residents of the United States send letters and emails to the chairpersons of the House and Senate intelligence committees expressing outrage that the Obama Administration continues to hold on to a practice that is clearly a violation of civil rights and democratic constitutions worldwide.

Two opposing perspectives – Two opposing futures

Edward-Snowden

Granted temporary asylum in Russia, Snowden is wanted by U.S. government authorities for the theft of government property and two offenses under the espionage statutes, specifically giving national defense information to someone without a security clearance and revealing classified information about “communications intelligence.” Each of the charges carries a maximum of 10 years in prison.

There were two recent  presentations that on the surface seemed unrelated but upon closer examination were very much related.  The first dealt with government surveillance and the second with immigration reform.

The first was a presentation by Edward Snowden at a TED conference via a telepresence robot, Snowden being in a secret location in Russia and the TED conference audience being in Whistler, British Columbia in Canada.

The other event was Obama addressing a crowd, a crowd that was clearly upset that  during his presidency more illegal immigrants have been deported than any presidency in the history of the United States.  His comments were attempting to justify why he has been unable to establish comprehensive immigration reform, a promise he made as a presidential candidate, yet like so many other promises, a promise he has failed to keep.

Snowden’s presentation was essentially a theme that emphasized the importance of citizens determining their own future whether that future had to do with the Internet community or the government’s claim that privacy came at a price.  He could not have disagreed more with NSA’s analysis that to protect the public, certain liberties had to be compromised.  Snowden believed it was possible to have both privacy and security, as they were not mutually exclusive conditions.  He argued eloquently that governments and the people could work together for the benefit of the whole.  He went on to adeptly show that the massive surveillance of American citizens has failed to reveal a single incidence of planned terrorism in the continental United States, a claim that is not solely made by Snowden but by many anti-terrorist experts and Congressional bipartisan panels.

Obama_heckler_jpg

President Obama normally handles hecklers with grace, but when he found himself being heckled on Monday, he took a more argumentative posture than the one he normally takes.

Obama on the other hand was telling his mostly Latino and Asian audience that his inability to implement meaningful immigration reform was due to the fact that we were a nation of laws and that without Congressional cooperation nothing could really be done short of doing away with those laws.  Wow, what a con artist!

Let’s stop at this point.  If you agree that Obama needs to be free to do what he sees as the best solution to any number of problems, you have already given away your rights as a citizen, nay, your responsibility as a citizen in a democratic country.  What Obama is really saying is he prefers a dictatorship to the difficulty of the democratic process.

Do you see the subtleness of this argument?  There is an axiom in the history of dictatorships.   That axiom or principle is that in order gain control of a gullible population one must secretly create an intolerable situation (via false flags, deceit, et al) then have ready a solution that the public will not only readily accept, but demand.  In the long run, the solution is always worse than the problem. The novel, Dr. Zhivago, by Boris Pasternak is nothing, if not a study in how dictatorships become so oppressive that they invade the very core of a people’s way of life and belief system, in this case, Communist Soviet Russia.

Here is a partial transcript of his comments to the heckler who accused him of separating families:

One heckler complained of families being separated by existing immigration law, shouting “You have a power to stop all deportations”.

“Actually, I don’t,” Obama shot back. “That’s why we’re here. If in fact I could solve all these problems without passing laws in Congress, I would do so. But we are also a nation of laws. The easy way out is to yell and pretend like I can do something by violating our laws … What I am proposing is the harder way … to use our democratic process and lobbying to getting it done.”

In the end, many of you want to believe this president has your interests at heart. You remember the hope he gave you as a candidate of the people, especially after a president like George W. Bush. As a consequence, whenever he says what you want to hear, you give him a pass and blame others for his failures just as he blames Congress for his failures.  Some of the most disliked presidents in history were effective lobbyists, Lyndon B. Johnson being the perfect example.  Johnson was well known to go outside the law to gain the wealth and recognition he desired, yet few presidents would have had the influence he possessed to bring about the passage of the Civil Rights Bill of 1964, a landmark legislation that opened doors to any number of previously denied Americans.

Have you hear of the phrase, “The proof is in the pudding” or “By their fruit you will recognize them.” If you use that as a standard in Obama’s case, you have a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Let go of the fantasy, be a realist, be a citizen – yes you can.

JS

P.S.  Part of Obama’s problem in getting things done in Congress is his distaste in meeting with members of Congress. He recently met with House Speaker John A. Boehner, the first such private meeting with the opposition leader of the House in over a year. He likes to make speeches and posture but does not like private meetings where he might have to defend his actions or lack there of. Congressmen and Senators alike, complain that they cannot get in to see Obama. His handlers run interference. What are they afraid of?
