American Resistance To Empire

“The Jewish people as a whole will become its own Messiah.”

[THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM....WAR IS POLITICS BY OTHER MEANS.]

Karl Marx

“The Jewish people as a whole will become its own Messiah.”

“It will attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship.

In this New World Order the children of Israel will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The Governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which is said that when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands.”

The Third Rail Awaits—Touch Social Security, Mr. Obama…See What Happens

The Third Rail Awaits

rense
By Jim Kirwan
10-16-13

The world waits for just one more day before ‘imbalance’ may take over from our contemptible attempts to retain some balance in our world. We have seen despicable behavior from our overpaid politicians that have totally lost all touch with reality. And just today this came from the Washington Post:

“… The credit rating agency Fitch announced it was accelerating its timetable for a potential U.S. credit rating downgrade, citing the brinksmanship in Washington. Fitch would become the second credit rating firm to downgrade U.S. government debt, which could have ripple effects across a range of markets.”

The House is trying to find its’ way forward in “a Bi-Partisan way” (that means that they all agree to do this dirty-deed to everyone in the country): This from Boner in a $5,000 suit who will not suffer no matter how many crimes the congress commits against the American people. He should be hung from a light-pole in that egotistical outfit.

Boehner: No deal in the House yet

0:59

October 15, 2013 11:31 AM EDT House Speaker John Boehner said Tuesday there were “a lot of opinions about what direction to go” on government shutdown negotiations after a meeting with House Republicans. (The Washington Post) (1)

At issue now is whether or not the Unaffordable Health Care Plan will be forced on ordinary Americans. That’s the excuse for holding the nation hostage to raising the Debt Ceiling one-more-time which would be catastrophic for this country. In fact this also came in today:

This weekend America witnessed a limited crash in the computer systems that manage electronic benefit transfers across the country. Within hours of the crash panicked food stamp recipients who were left with no way to feed their families rushed grocery store shelves to obtain everything they could while the system was down.

The outage lasted less than a day, but it proved what many already knew, that America had become a nation so dependent on government subsidies that any glitch in the system could lead to total pandemonium.

But if you thought that isolated incident was bad, imagine what could happen next month.

We say next month because the USDA, which oversees the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), has just issued an order to SNAP agency directors calling for their respective States to implement an emergency contingency program because of government funding issues. In a letter obtained by the Crossroads Urban Center food pantry, the USDA is directing state agencies to, “delay their November issuance files and delay transmission to State Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) vendors until further notice.

What this means is that should Congress fail to increase the debt ceiling this week, come November there will literally be millions of people in the United States who will have exactly zero dollars transferred to their EBT cards.

What will happen to the nearly 50 million people who depend on these benefits to survive?

Think this past weekend and multiply it across the entirety of the United States of America.

In the State of Utah the immediate effect of the USDA’s contingency plan will be a freeze in benefits for 100,000 people. Richard Phillips, a homeless man who depends on the government’s monthly distributions, warned what would happen next: (2)

That’s what the high-profile crap is all about. But here’s where the real gold is that the government wants to steal from the public under the guise of giving stuff-up to pay for denying Obama the passage of his Unaffordable Health-Care-Bill.

The government of the United States made a contract with the public that Roosevelt signed into law on 8/13/1935. Since that day working Americans have been paying into Social Security for the length of their working lives.

In my case as a self-employed artist I vehemently tried to forego being included on that plan for over thirty years, unsuccessfully. I was forced to pay into the plan even though I did not want to participate. I was threatened with jail, if I refused to pay into the plan. After I began to draw out the funds that I had earned, Social Security informed me that the money in my Social Security Account was not mine—it belonged to the U.S. Government and they would decide how much of that money I could have, at any given time.

Currently Social Security is more than just solvent. There is enough money in Social Security, to cover what it needs to cover the payments that the government will owe to Social Security recipients, during the next 37years without a problem.

Two things come to mind. First: Social Security is funded by the people who have been paying a portion of what they earn every week into the system for the last 78 years. Government cannot change the rules after the money has been paid into the system. Social Security is not charity and it is not a government-handout in any sense of that term. It is a solemn legal contract between the people who pay into it and the government.

Social Security is not one of Netanyahu’s “Red-Lines”

This is the Third Rail of American Political Life ­

Social Security

Will kill the politicians that

are dumb enough to mess-around with it.

The people who draw out the money have already paid into the account for decades. (unless you’re illegal, and what you get from social security is paid to you as a free-gift from Obama ­ you don’t pay in but you get to collect because you are illegal).

Because Social Security is an ongoing contract with the working public, the government is not free to change the terms under which recipients can collect or redistribute the money—after their money has already been paid into Social Security.

This program cannot be used as a bargaining chip in some presidential-congressional-fantasy that allows either or both parties to treat Social Security recipients as pawns in some political high-stakes poker-game. There is sweat and blood and tears involved here; in our lives that cannot simply be given over to the government. This government cannot steal the entire 37 years of the fund that is still solvent. If they try to, there will be more than just hell to pay!

Ironically this is exactly what Obama is planning on doing, if he can force congress to raise the debt ceiling: Obama will demand the elimination of both Social Security and Medicare, as his price for having congress embarrass him by blocking his unaffordable health plan.

Medicare is a government program, but it was not something that anyone pre-paid with their hard-earned money, it was and is now nothing but another government handout and can be withdrawn at any time. Nevertheless Obama has lumped both programs into one payoff, supposedly just to keep the government running…

If Obama had ever worked for anything in his fraudulent life, he would understand how dangerous it is to fool-around with Social Security—especially now when virtually everything else is about to go up in smoke.

The “chips” being tossed about in these supposed “negotiations” do not involve the same kinds of values. Some of what they want to bargain with or against is not theirs to play-around with: In the case of Social Security that contract has never been open to wheeler-dealers!

If the government or the congress attempts to screw-around with Social Security they will go to jail this time, for grand-theft-fraud against the public of the United States. There are over 80 thousand recipients that receive Social Security Checks each month and to defraud those people is a major crime because this government is sworn to honor all its legal commitments—especially the agreements that involve years of payments already sent to the government.

Social Security recipients are not the same as the Government of China, the illegal bankers of the world, or the people who bought bogus treasury bonds: But they will not be stiffed by this imposter who claims to be the Emperor! If this government moves against Social Security, they might just as well do so from overseas because if they remain here, they’ll pay for this crime with their lives!

The way this problem gets solved or fails to be dealt with will affect every man woman and child in this country for the rest of their lives.

If that credit rating mentioned at the top of this article, dips for certain,

The dollars that we all use will definitely be worth-less and be getting much closer to becoming ‘worthless’!

The International Plot to Steal All Retirement Accounts

[It has long been obvious to many of us that the bankers and their government stooges had always planned to steal all savings and retirement accounts, for me, the realization of government intentions toward private property began with Jimmie Carter's emergency declaration to freeze Iranian assets (SEE:  presidential emergency powers).  For me, the realization was like seeing 30+ years into the future, with the understanding that "IF" they could claim such police state powers by using Iran as an excuse, then they would definitely find a better excuse, sometime in the near future, after better preparations had been made by the trillionaire plotters.  

Dave Hodges does demonstrate a lot of "Common Sense" his articless, derived from his own research into the same pathological government corruption. It is good for me to recognize another kindred spirit, who has also spent much of his own life howling against the hurricane winds about the tragedies that are certain to come.  It is NOT MUCH FUN being proven right when vindication comes with so much pain and suffering for us all]

The International Plot to Steal All Retirement Accounts

Dave Hodges

The Common Sense Show

John B. Wells

John B. Wells

Almost three months ago, the Saturday night host of Coast to Coast AM, John B. Wells and I were co-guests on the same show in which he expressed the view that Putin and Obama were playing for the same team and that the apparent Russian/American conflict over Syria and Iran was merely an exercise in theater. I had actually thought Putin was standing up to America’s imperialism and stood in opposition to Obama’s incremental plan to insert America into Syria and then Iran. However, there was something about Mr. Wells’ statements that resonated with me.

 

One week ago, while appearing on my show,The Common Sense Show, John B. Wells repeated the same belief in which he reiterated that Putin and Obama work for the same masters.  As I write these words, I must confess that I discovered and subsequently concluded that Mr. Wells is absolutely correct in one very important regard. Both Russia and the United States have begun to steal all retirement accounts from their citizens in preparation for an economic collapse.

 

The only plausible explanation on why Putin and Obama would be pursuing the same strategy, with regard to absconding with their nation’s retirement funds, is because both leaders are actively pursuing the same strategy as I write these words.

 

Grand Larceny, Russian Style

 

Dimitry Medvedev

Dmitry Medvedev

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev told his finance ministers that the Russian government is “temporarily” seizing $7.6 billion in savings from non-state pension funds while it carries out inspections to insure that the money Russians channel to private pension funds, is safe. To do this, it will seize 244 billion rubles (i.e. $7.6 billion) from private, non-governmental pension funds and forcibly, but only “temporarily” place them into the Russian government state pension fund.

 

Russian authorities claim that they will only hold the retirement money for one year while they check to see that banking institutions are sound. Please remember the one year figure, this will prove significant later in this article.

 

dont steal the gov hates compettitionThe Russian government explanation of why they need to seize retirement funds does not even constitute a good cover story. Many analysts state that the “temporary” borrowing of Russian pension funds by the government looks more like a case of government“confiscation” of these private funds in anticipation of a coming crash.

Former Russian finance minister, Alexei Kudrin, recently stated that if the government is not intent on spending these retirement funds, then why are they booking the money?

Government controlled companies have expressed a negative reaction to the “borrowing” of Russian retirement funds. Most experts agree that the Russian government is making Russia a very unattractive place to invest given this new development. This apparent reckless action by the Russian government makes no sense unless the Russians, like the American bankers are attempting to acquire as many hard assets as possible.

 

Grand Larceny, American Style

 

The former head of the Goldman Sachs crime syndicate and former Treasury Secretary, Hank Paulson, telling a closed session of Congress that if they did not grant Wall Street “bailouts” there will be martial law ithe streets as a result of the economy collapsing. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is a proven lying, incompetent crook. When he does something with anyone’s money, we would all be well-advised to pay attention.

 

The Treasury Department is taking federal retirement programs. The very close friends of Goldman Sachs, over at Citigroup, have their henchman in charge of the continuing rape of America by Wall Street, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew. Let me be clear, and Lew you can sue me if this not true, that it is a fact that Obama appointed one of the criminals who had a major hand in bringing down the economy to run the country’s finances.

 

The Honorable Jack Lew

The Honorable Jack Lew

While at Citigroup, Lew oversaw 113 tax-evading accounts in Cayman Island banks.  Based upon Lew’s resume, hedge funds for Citigroup where he lost almost $600 million dollars, one can only assume that is why Obama has appointed Lew to finish the job which will leave you and me with nothing.

 

Lew began his theft of public retirement accounts by beginning with federal workers in the same manner as the Russian government.

 

Our government is not the enemy. This is not the government we are dealing with. The American people are battling an organized crime in the form of corporations like Goldman Sachs who have hijacked our government. They are lining up for the last great garage sale before they collapse the economy and roll out martial law. There are forces lining up to steal everything that you and I own. It has already begun but this country is so dumbed down, we do not see that it has already started.

 

Five months ago, Lew announced that the government was taking the unprecedented action of avoiding governmental default through this summer by including tapping into and suspending investments into the Civil Service Retirement and Disability Fund and halting the daily reinvestment of the government securities (G) fund, the most stable offering in the Thrift Savings Plan‘s portfolio. The phrase “avoid a government default is highly significant”. If Obama and the Congress do not resolve the budget crisis by the drop dead shutdown date of October 16th, are the other retirement funds going to be at risk for the same reason?

 

 

Analysis

 

As it was in Greece and Cyprus, so it shall be in the US and Russia. Spain and France are next. This is clearly a plot hatched by the central bankers who now engaged in stealing everything that is not nailed down.

I have previously noted how the banks are acquiring hard assets while restricting their exposure by curtailing lending. We have long heard that bankers that have hijacked the government would commence stealing our private wealth through the pension funds and this is exactly what the chief bankster, Jack Lew, is implementing. The next step will be to seize bank accounts, like they did in Cyprus and then step up the MERS mortgage fraud as the Federal Reserve continues to purchase $40 billion dollars in Mortgage Backed Securities every month.

 

The G Fund is invested in interest-bearing Treasury securities (i.e. bonds) that make up the public debt. The Civil Service Retirement Fund finances benefit payments under the Civil Service Retirement System and the basic retirement annuity of the Federal Employees’ Retirement System, and those investments are made up of securities also considered part of the public debt. In other words, for you people who have cushy federal government jobs, Lew is telling you that the government controls your retirement. They own it and they own you.  Since the national deficit is $17 trillion dollars and the unfunded federal mandated liabilities (e.g. social security, Medicare, etc) will exceed $220 trillion dollars in one year, these victimized federal workers will never see their full retirement. And if you find yourself breathing a sigh of relief because you do not work for the federal government, you have sadly deluded yourself because the government mafia is coming after all forms of retirement accounts, both pension funds and invested retirements (e.g. 401K’s).

 

Conclusion

 

The bankers in Russia and America are engaged in the exact same strategy. I am sure the coincidence theorists will have a field day explaining away these coincidences.  Ask yourself, once a government gets their hands on a new source of revenue, such as a new tax, when have you ever gotten your money back, or has the tax been withdrawn?

 

"La, La, La, La, the government loves me, I can't hear you."

“La, La, La, La, the government loves me, I can’t hear you.”

There are some people who will write to me and say that we should trust our government just like the man who wrote me yesterday and stated that DHS has not purchased any rounds of ammunition. I know, the government loves us and would never bring harm to us, financially or otherwise. Please allow me to firmly hold my belly as I hysterically laugh and say this, the government says they are just borrowing the retirement accounts. Oh stop, my belly is starting to hurt so much, I can barely keep typing. How much of the bailout money has been paid back by the banks? Is MERS still stealing home mortgages and are they still in existence? Does MF Global thief, John “the Don” Corzine, occupy a cell next to Bernie Madoff?  And do not forget that last year, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, in Illinois, announced that once you deposit your money into the bank, the bank owns your deposit. These central banking thieves are in the midst of stealing every hard asset that they can. 

 

nsa im watching youFor you people who thought serving the New World Order was such a good idea, are you reconsidering your loyalties now? You NSA guys who are spying on us right this minute, do you think your pensions are safe? To you potbellied perverts from the TSA, do you think your retirement will be there when you are done groping our wives and children on behalf of the globalists who seek to dehumanizethe traveling public? To you DC cops who murdered Miriam Carey, in front of her one year old baby, do you think your retirement is going to be there when you are done being thugs for the new federalized police of the DHS who are in servitude to the NWO? The political lake of fire is approaching and you servants of the criminal central banking mafia that has hijacked our government had better repent before you lose everything.

 

And do you remember earlier when I reported that the Russian government guaranteed to only “temporarily” seize their retirement funds for one year? I think the Russians have given us a clue as to how long we will have to wait until the global economy is collapsed and all of our retirements and bank accounts are seized. Remember this chronology, false flag events followed by martial law, followed by WWIII and theft of all citizen assets is the plan and the NWO is right on schedule.

 

John B. Wells was correct when he concluded that Putin and Obama serve the same masters. With regard to incrementally stealing all retirement accounts, the Russians and the Americans are marching in lockstep while hoping would notice that their game plans are identical. And if JFK were alive today, he would be reminding us that he warned us about the gnomes of Zurich.

Obama’s War-Generated Tsunami of Dark-Skinned People Turning Mediterranean Into Massive Watery Cemetary

[Long before the Obama/Hillary State Dept. managed to generate these regime-change wars, disguising them as "democratic-revolutions," "Boat People" were fleeing from other US-generated wars, the terror wars in Somalia, Ethiopia and Eritrea.  At that time, most of these people choosing to leave Africa left from the ports of Libya, seeking "the good life" in Europe.  Obviously, those refugees were all "people of color," most likely Muslims, making them the least-wanted out of all the refugees who have been flooding Europe, seeking asylum (SEE:  Camp of the Saints).  Whenever wars are generated in civilian areas, floods of refugees are certain to follow.  ANY FOOL KNOWS THIS.  In the case of Obama and Hillary's wars "for democracy," overwhelming flows of refugees were the INTENDED EFFECT.  All of the American and British studies on the civilian effects of their wars against enemy cities, have focused upon manipulating refugees as a terror weapon, to be used to influence the strategic decisions made by the enemy leadership.  In WWII, agitating the civilian populations had the direct effect of forcing undesired actions upon the high command.  This is the SAME POLICY being followed by the Obama Administration as they put the squeeze upon targeted leaders, like Bashar Assad.  More refugees, the louder the public outroar over the "bad guys" who produce them.

The ongoing “Boat People” issue is merely the same terror policy, being followed upon a liquid medium, the Mediterranean.  Forcing helpless women and children onto the choppy Mediterranean waters has the desired indirect effect of forcing European leaders to accept American neo-liberal multiculturalism, as well as US-designated security roles for the individual govts. in the EU.  Italy has been the primary target in this particular manipulation, because of their far-flung possession, Lampedusa Island, the site of two recent boat people tragedies.  Malta is next in line after Italy, owing to its own proximity to the N. African coast. 

Refugees were sent back to Libya by Italy after they were rescued at sea in Malta’s search-and-rescue waters in (June 6, 7, 2010). Here, the exhausted refugees wait to hear their fate, in Tripoli (photo, M Alwash/UNHCR)—

The FRONTEX agreements are an excuse for the Imperial power to intervene between the govts. of Southern Europe and those of N. Africa.  Nothing more…issues like responsibility for refugees, in particular, the right to “Non-refoulement,” for the refugees from war zones, not being forced to go back to the wars.  We are facing a diabolical plan, which treats human beings as nothing more than cattle, “useless eaters” to be stampeded, or forced into dangerous waters, whenever it suits the Imperial will.  This plan requires a level of callous cruelty, which is unimaginable to the normal or sane person.  This is why most humans cannot even understand that there is a plot against the Nation and against the entire human race, which defies normal logic, even though it is completely “logical” from a pathological point of view.  What kind of megalomaniacal genius did it take to foresee, and plan for, this little Boat People confrontation, turning it into the cornerstone of international humanitarian policies, known as “R2P,” or “responsibility to protect”?]

Malta warns EU waters ‘a cemetery’ after fresh tragedy

BBC

Malta’s prime minister has said European waters close to Africa are turning into a cemetery, after another boat laden with migrants capsized.

Malta PM Joseph Muscat: “As things stand we are just building a cemetery within our Mediterranean Sea”

Joseph Muscat said Malta felt “abandoned” by the rest of Europe and urged the EU to take action.

Malta and Italy launched a rescue operation after a boat capsized on Friday, killing at least 50 people.

It happened 120km (70 miles) off Lampedusa, the Italian island where at least 300 migrants drowned last week.

The loss of life has renewed the debate within EU member states on migration rules.

Children among dead

In the latest incident, the vessel carrying more than 200 migrants is believed to have encountered difficulties in Maltese waters just before sunset on Friday.

The migrants used a satellite phone to raise the alarm but the boat capsized when passengers crowded to one side as they tried to get the attention of a passing aircraft, the Maltese navy said.

The BBC’s Matthew Price, on Lampedusa, says the boat was carrying Syrians and Palestinians.

The Syrians already in the refugee centre on Lampedusa had spoken to friends and relatives who had boarded the vessel, he says.

One couple who had survived the journey with their nine-month-old daughter said they had spent an hour in the water.

The husband had held the child to his chest to keep her alive, but he had been unable to help his son, who had drowned in front of them.

“Helicopters rescued 120 people”

Earlier on Friday, at least 500 other migrants travelling in separate boats were rescued in coastguard operations near the Italian island of Sicily.

Also on Friday, a separate boat accident off the Egyptian port of Alexandria claimed the lives of at least 12 migrants.

Egyptian security officials said 116 people, mostly Palestinians and Syrians, were pulled from the water.

Budget cuts

Mr Muscat said prompt action between Malta and Italy had saved lives, but he complained that the rest of Europe had supplied only “empty talk”.

“I don’t know how many more people need to die at sea before something gets done,” he said.

“Rules need to change, whether they are tighter or looser is not the issue, the fact is that this thing is broken and it needs to be fixed.

Lampedusa map

“As things stand we are building a cemetery within our Mediterranean Sea.”

After last week’s tragedy off Lampedusa the European Commission called for the EU to launch Mediterranean-wide search and rescue patrols to intercept migrant boats.

The EU’s Frontex border agency, set up in 2004, has seen its budget cut from 118m euros (£100m; $160m) in 2011 to 85m euros in 2013.

Italy has previously appealed to EU states for help in coping with the thousands of illegal migrants who wash up on its shores every year.

Our correspondent says European leaders face a quandary as they struggle to balance political pressures to restrict migrant numbers with the need to assist those desperate enough to risk such a perilous journey.

‘Sadness and anxiety’

Lampedusa, 120km off the North African coast, is a key destination for migrant vessels bound for Europe.

Tens of thousands attempt the crossing to Lampedusa, Sicily and other Italian islands each year.

The latest rescue operation swung into action after the Maltese air force spotted the boat and alerted Italian naval vessels still in the area after last Thursday’s disaster.

Helicopters were used to lift many to safety but nightfall hampered the rescue operation.

At least 33 people were confirmed dead, with one report estimating the death toll at 50.

Mr Muscat’s office said 147 survivors had been picked up by a Maltese patrol boat and were being taken to Malta. Another 56 had been saved by Italian crews.

The prime minister said the dead included three small children.

Cecilia Malmstrom, the EU Commissioner for Home Affairs, praised the swift Italian and Maltese rescue effort, which she said had helped reduce the potential death toll.

She said in a statement that she was following the operation with “sadness and anxiety”.

“These new horrible events are happening while we still have the shocking images of the tragedy in Lampedusa in our minds,” she added.

Formal Articles of Impeachment of Obama Prepared for the Congress of the United States…

“Resolution Impeaching Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors.”


       Download


Resolution Impeaching Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Resolved, That Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors and that the following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate:

Articles of impeachment exhibited by the House of Representatives of the United States of America in the name of itself and of the people of the United States of America, against Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States of America, in maintenance and support of its impeachment against him for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Article I

In his conduct while President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, in violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has willfully corrupted and manipulated the executive branch to increase its power and destroy the balance of powers between the three branches of government that is established by the Constitution of the United States.

The means used to implement this course of conduct or scheme included one or more of the following acts:

(1)  Shortly after being sworn in for his first term as President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama began creating new departments and appointing Czars to oversee these departments. These Czars were never submitted to the United States Senate for approval as required by Article 2, Section 2 of the Constitution. In addition, these Czars and the Departments have budgets that are not subject to being controlled by Congress as provided for by Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution. He also made recess appointments when the Senate was not in recess.

(2)  Article 2, Section 3 of the Constitution mandates that the President of the United States “shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed…” Barack Hussein Obama, in violation of his oath of office has repeatedly ignored this Constitutional mandate by refusing to enforce laws against illegal immigration, defend in court the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), and refusing to enforce Federal voting laws.

(3)  Article 1 of the Constitution establishes the legislative branch of the U.S. government and sets forth the powers of the Senate and House of Representatives to make laws. These powers are exclusive and the Constitution does not grant the President the power to either make laws or amend them on his own. Barack Hussein Obama has ignored these provisions and made or changed laws by either issuing unconstitutional executive orders or instructing governmental departments to take illegal and unconstitutional actions. Specific actions include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  1. A.   Ordering the Environmental Protection Agency to implement portions of the Cap & Trade bill that failed to pass in the U.S. Senate.
  2. B.   Ordering implementation of portions of the “Dream Act” that failed to pass in Congress.
  3. C.   Orchestrating a government takeover of a major part of the automobile industry in 2009.
  4. D.   Ordering a moratorium on new offshore oil and gas exploration and production without approval of Congress.
  5. E.   Signing an Executive Order on March 16, 2012 giving himself and the Executive branch extraordinary powers to control and allocate resources such as food, water, energy and health care resources etc. in the interest of vaguely defined national defense issues. It would amount to a complete government takeover of the U.S. economy.
  6. F.    Signing an Executive Order on July 6, 2012 giving himself and the Executive branch the power to control all methods of communications in the United States based on a Presidential declaration of a national emergency.
  7. G.  Signing an Executive Order on January 6, 2013 that contained 23 actions designed to limit the individual right to keep and bear arms guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution.
  8. H.  Amending portions of the Affordable Healthcare Act and other laws passed by Congress without Congressional approval as required by Article 1 of the Constitution.

Article II

(1) Article 2, Section 3 of the Constitution mandates that from time to time the President “shall give to Congress information on the State of the Union….” Implicit in this is an obligation for the President to be truthful with the Congress and the American people. Barack Hussein Obama has repeatedly violated his oath of office and the requirements of the Constitution by willfully withholding information on important issues or actively taken part in misleading the Congress and the American people. Specific actions include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  1. A.   Using Executive privilege to block Congress from getting documents relating to the DOJ’s Operation Fast and Furious and the death of U.S. Border Patrol Brian Terry.
  2. B.   Had members of his administration provide false information about the act of terrorism committed in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 and refusing to allow the State Department and other federal agencies to cooperate in the Congressional investigation.
  3. C.   Falsely labeled the mass murder of American soldiers at Ft. Hood, Texas as “workplace violence” instead of the act of Islamic terrorism it was.
  4. D.   Falsely labeling the IRS targeting of conservative and Christian groups as a “phony” scandal and refusing to order an active pursuit of the investigation into who was ultimately responsible.
  5. E.   Refusing to order an independent investigation of the actions of Eric Holder and the DOJ in targeting the phone records of members of the news media.
  6. F.    Telling the American people on a television show that the NSA was not prying into the emails and phone calls of Americans when the facts prove otherwise

(2) The oath of office of the President of the United States requires him to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. This obviously includes what may be the most important part of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights. Barack Hussein Obama has repeatedly violated his oath of office by seeking to limit both the individual rights and the rights of the States guaranteed in the first ten amendments to the Constitution. Specific actions include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  1. A.    Having the Department of Health and Human Services order religious institutions and businesses owned by religious families to provide their employees free contraception and other services that are contrary to their religious beliefs. This is being done under the auspices of the Affordable Health Care Act and violates the religious freedom clauses of the First Amendment.  
  2. B.    Having the military place restrictions on the religious freedom of Chaplains and other members of the military in order to favor gay rights advocates and atheists in violation of the First Amendment.
  3. C.    Having the military place restrictions on the freedom of speech of members of the military and the civilian employees of the DOD in violation of their rights under the First Amendment.
  4. D.    Using Executive orders and government agency actions to limit Second Amendment rights. This includes actions by the Veterans Administration to disarm American veterans without due process as required by the Fifth Amendment.
  5. E.    Having the National Security Agency intercept and monitor the private communications of millions of Americans without a court order and in violation of the Fourth Amendment.
  6. F.     Joining with foreign governments in lawsuits against sovereign U.S. states to prohibit them from enforcing immigration laws. This is in violation of the Tenth Amendment.
  7. G.   Filing suits under the Voting Rights Act against sovereign U.S. states to prevent them from enforcing Voter ID laws despite rulings by the Supreme Court upholding these laws. This is another violation of the Tenth Amendment and the balance of powers.

(3) Under Article 2, Section 2 of the Constitution the President of the United States is the Commander in Chief of the United States military and as such is responsible for using them in a manner that best serves the national security of the United States and protects our soldiers from unnecessary risks and harm. Barack Hussein Obama has violated his oath of office in this regard. Specific actions include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  1. A.   In the name of  “political correctness,” he imposed unnecessary and dangerous rules of engagement on our troops in combat causing them to lose offensive and defensive capabilities and putting them in danger. Many American service personnel have been killed or wounded as a result of this policy.
  2. B.   Releasing the identity of American military personnel and units engaged in dangerous and secret operations such as the killing of Osama bin Laden by Navy Seal team 6.
  3. C.   Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution gives Congress the exclusive power to declare war. Yet, without consulting Congress President Obama ordered the American military into action in Libya.

In all of this, Barack Hussein Obama has undermined the integrity of his office, has brought disrepute on the Presidency, has betrayed his trust as President and has acted in a manner subversive of the rule of law and justice, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.

Wherefore, Barack Hussein Obama, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States.

TOO MUCH INPUT!—NSA’S Utah Data Center Keeps Catching Fire From All Those Processors Heating-Up At Once

DEVELOPING — $2B NSA Spy Center in Utah is Going Up in Flames…

REDFLAG NEWS

(by Brianna Ehley, THE FISCAL TIMES) – The National Security Agency’s $2 billion mega spy center is going up in flames.

Technical glitches have sparked fiery explosions within the NSA’s newest and largest data storage facility in Utah, destroying hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of equipment, and delaying the facility’s opening by one year.

And no one seems to know how to fix it.

For a country that prides itself on being a technology leader, not knowing the electrical capacity requirements for a system as large as this is quite questionable.

Within the last 13 months, at least 10 electric surges have each cost about $100,000 in damages, according to documents obtained by the Wall Street Journal. Experts agree that the system, which requires about 64 megawatts of electricity—that’s about a $1 million a month energy bill–isn’t able to run all of its computers and servers while keeping them cool, which is likely triggering the meltdowns.

The contractor that designed the flawed system—Pennsylvania-based Klingstubbins–said in a statement that it has “uncovered the issue” and is working on “implementing a permanent fix.”

But that’s not the case, according to the Army Corps of Engineers (ACE), which is in charge of overseeing the data center’s construction. ACE disagreed with the contractor and said the meltdowns are “not yet sufficiently understood.”

A report by ACE in the Wall Street Journal said the government has incomplete information about the design of the electrical system that could pose new problems if settings need to change on circuit breakers. The report also said regular quality controls in design and construction were bypassed in an effort to “fast track” the project.

The facility—named the Utah Data Center—is the largest of several new NSA data centers central to the agency’s massive surveillance program that was exposed by former NSA contractor turned leaker Edward Snowden earlier this year.

Communications from all around the world in the form of emails, cell phone calls and Google searches, among other digital details are stored in the center’s databases, which are said to be larger than Google’s biggest data center. But due to the major system meltdowns, the NSA hasn’t been able to use the center’s databases, which it has claimed are crucial for national security.

America, It Has Come To This—Revolution Or Civil War

Game Over: Total Collapse is Imminent

Can you pick yourself out of the photo?

Can you pick yourself out of the photo?

America, while you slept, your country was stolen from you. Your country was absconded by all the political misfits and corporate criminals that the disenfranchised former Republicans and Democrats have been trying to warn you about during the last several years.

How Did We Get Here?

Laws, originating out of New Deal legislation, written in response to the Great Depression, provided some measure of protection for the American financial system from the unsavory forces which led to its initial demise in 1929. In 2008, corporate greed, governmental corruption and a populace who was asleep at the wheel, has succeeded in achieving what historians will someday label the “Greatest Depression of 2013-2014.” History will also show that the destruction of the late, great American economy was entirely self-inflicted.

Why the US Economy Is Irreversibly Damaged

If Americans knew their history, then we would be cognizant of the fact that one of the prime causes of the Great Depression was due to stock investors buying shares on margin (i.e., loans). Glass Steagall Act protected Americans from this shady practice by separating commercial banking from this investment practice of stockbrokers. However, with one stroke of his New World Order pen, Bill Clinton’s repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act opened the flood gates for the domestic AND foreign infusion of bad credit into both our stock market and banking system. Consequently, both industries stand in the midst of a total and complete economic collapse in what is quickly becoming known as the most massive wealth transfer in world history.On September 30, 1999 , Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac sought governmental permission to “relax” (i.e., break) the prudent governmental regulations on sound lending practices and begin to make loans to individuals who were not credit worthy. This spelled the death of the mortgage industry as we once knew it and the housing market was collapsed.

The Uptick Rule once prevented companies from crashing due to large scale shorting of company stock. A company’s stock could not be sold short as long as it was in continuous decline. Short sellers had to wait for an uptick in the stock before engaging in shorting. The Uptick Rule was retired in 2007 and the rest, as they say, is history. The elimination of the Uptick Rule is like going to a basketball game and not being able to see the scoreboard. Who’s ahead, who’s behind? Nobody knows but “Ladies and Gentlemen, place your bets!” What is your stock portfolio worth? Who knows? Who cares? Somebody wealthy is getting wealthier at your expense and you and your middle class investors are none the wiser.

The rapid increase in the price of fuel during the last several years is a good example of the destructive nature of the derivative market. Most of the price gouging which resulted in unprecedented increases in gas prices, and record oil company profits, was due to speculation in futures especially by Goldman Sachs which just happens to be former Treasury Secretary’s Henry Paulson’s old company. Paulson oversaw the first bailouts as a result of the derivatives market failure. Today the derivatives market has collapsed and the collapse has pulled our entire economy along with it. The Federal Reserve is temporarily keeping the economy barely afloat by printing massive sums of money, but this game is almost over.

Why America Can Never Recover

banksters get out of jail card freeDerivatives are not stocks or bonds or anything of tangible value. The value of a derivative is technically viewed as “anticipated future value.” Therefore, derivatives have no real value. However, a derivatives transaction must have the backing of a financial institution such as a brokerage or a bank. The assets used to back up and collateralize the worthless derivatives are real and substantial. When the derivatives market crashed, it took down hard assets of tangible value. In effect, the economy had stupidly used something in order to back up nothing and the something is now in the total control of the central bankers. To cover the losses of the “too-big-to-fail” entities, the bailouts were initiated in what constituted the largest wealth transfer in world history.

This is the ultimate money game in which paper derived from other paper, such as futures and options, has served to bolster the balance sheets on Wall Street. Futures and options are exchanged traded derivatives, but the largest group of derivatives is not even traded on the exchanges. These are called “counterparty derivatives” and consist of such financial entities as mortgage backed securities and credit default swaps.

It is estimated that total derivative exposure of the financial system is between one quadrillion and one and a half quadrillion. A quadrillion is 1,000 trillion dollars and it has largely collapsed. The entire Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of all the world’s countries in 2011 was approximately 77 trillion dollars. GDP is an economic term for everything that is produced for sale. The American middle class is being asked to bear the burden of the entire derivatives market collapse which totals over 16 times the net value of the entire planet. No amount of bailouts can ever cover the loss. This is simply the bankers way of transferring what is left of middle class wealth before the final collapse.

IT IS MATHEMATICALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO PAY OFF THE DERIVATIVE DEBT!

Where do you think the bail out money went? Ask yourself why so many corporate heads are building homes overseas? Why did George Bush build a 100,000 acre ranch in Paraguay? Why is NORTHCOM, a combat organization, is engaged in urban riot control training? Why did DHS purchase 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition to go with their 2700 armored personnel carriers? Even the National Weather Service has purchased million of rounds of ammunition. Why are the Russians training on American soil with FEMA in a bilateral agreement signed by Obama? Why are we seeing one disaster drill after another being carried out in this country? Here is a partial list of disaster drills being carried between September 25-November 13th.

Port of Houston Ran Simulation Drill for ‘Dirty Bomb’ Attack Sept. 25

Maine Hosted Secret Multi-Agency Disaster Drill Sept. 25

Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill Set Oct. 17

More Than 1,000 Banks Plan National Cyber-Attack Drill Oct. 16-17, Oct. 23-24

Quantum Dawn’ Is a Cyber-Attack Bank Drill –

GridEx2 Nov. 13-14

 

Many of us feel that inside one of these disaster drills lies the false flag event which will be used to collapse the economy and lead to either martial law or civil war. Do you really think that language is too strong? On Friday, Senator Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) stated that the political rhetoric has reached civil war levels.

The central bankers know that no amount of Quantitative Easing can pay for the hard assets that were lost in order to collateralize the derivatives. They have no option but to collapse the system and start over, but before they do, they are going to steal everything that is not nailed down. This is why in preparation of this move to collapse the system, they are obtaining as many hard assets as possible. This is why the Federal Reserve has been printing 40 billion dollars per month for the sole purpose of purchasing mortgage backed securities. This is why central bankers are under orders from the Bank of International Settlement which has ordered its rank and file central bankers from each country to greatly minimize loans in order to limit exposure when the collapse occurs. This is why the MERS mortgage fraud, in which millions of people are having their houses stolen through the creation of phony titles, continues unabated. This is why the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that once a depositor puts their money in the bank, the bank owns the money.  This is why Treasury Secretary Lew began to “borrow” against federal pensions late last spring. This is why DHS, the IRS et al are preparing to go to war with the American people as they arm to the teeth. This is why the foreign troops are here.You are on the Titanic and you are going down. Still not convinced? Then explain Cyprus, Greece, Poland and now Panama where the TPTB are stealing pensions and bank accounts and you don‘t think it can happen to you because you are an American?

We have options America. We could arrest the Wall Street thugs that perpetrated this whole bloody mess and issue a declaration of debt repudiation. However, the other side is prepared to fight you as evidenced by the recent militarization of every federal agency. I do not believe that that America has the intestinal fortitude to fight back. We are a soft nation. And if we did resist, we should be prepared to fight the Russians and the Chinese on American soil because the central bankers will certainly follow a Red Dawn scenario.

When the Titanic went down, who did they save? They saved 70% of the wealthy as they were the ones that got into the life boats while the coach passengers were locked into steerage in which only 10% of those poor persons survived. This is exactly what is going on now. The government is not bailing out small business owners, pension holders and the average investor. They, we, are only bailing out the rich friends of the international bankers. The rest of us are locked into middle class steerage. Get your money out of the bank. Cash in your 401K and your pensions. The game is over and you only have time to jump from this sinking ship.America, there is a price for our collective ignorance and it is called enslavement.

Our moms were wrong, what you don’t know can and will hurt you!

The Real Reason for Allowing the Creation of “Social Media” Comes Into View

[I-phones, GPS, Twitter and all personal media can and will be used to keep tabs on us.  Where we are, what we are doing, even what we are thinking, is being monitored,charted and graphed as the preliminary stage to total control of individuals, their actions and their thoughts.  Eventually, the US Police State will come out of the shadows and move against us, all of us, in order to separate us from the rest of the sheeple.  By us, I mean the American resisters.  The new iPhone 5S even takes the owner'sfingerprints, saving them to use as a form of personal identification.  Stop twitting and tweeting, or "twerking" (whatever that is), or using facebook...Throw away your i-phones and anything that records your actions, or any automatic GPS-tracking devices...There will come a time when all of us here in the Alternative Reality will want to be untraceable, or incognito.  Just wait 'til A.I. is given the task of filling the camps with American dissidents.  Our day is coming (SEE:

Technology-Driven Imperial Aggression—Testing US Weapons On Civilians In the Middle East

Secret technology pushing US into military adventures

Now that America has these things (modern clandestine technologies), they now want to use them and what better place to test non-existent technology than Syria?”

The development of military technology, beginning with the Strategic Defense Initiative of the Reagan presidency, has given the US capabilities that have remained “dark,” not just secret but “deniable” as well.

The US can simulate any intelligence source, any terror attack, small or large, or even influence public opinion, push groups to follow insane ideas or drive individuals to acts of unspeakable horror.

The best part of this, for America’s political leaders at least, is that they aren’t officially informed. Key congressional leaders like McCain or former Senator Kerry know all of it, know but aren’t talking.

They were the proponents that pushed these technologies, some costing tens of billions of “black budget” dollars, to fruition.

Now that America has these things, they now want to use them and what better place to test non-existent technology than Syria?

Nukes
America’s new addition is to its new generation of nuclear weapons developed at Livermore labs after 1991.

New weapons can be dialed to achieve little or no blast. It is impossible to determine if any large explosion is nuclear or conventional. Nuclear weapons, when used, are claimed to be conventional weapons that hit “arms caches” or “fuel depots.”

Some weapons known as Minimal Residual Radiation (MRR) weapons produce ionizing radiation for only a few hundred yards and all detectable radiation is gone in 72 hours.

Other nuclear weapons are “tuned” to destroy particular materials. Some can destroy steel, turning it into a powder. These are designed to be used on naval targets.

Other nukes are “tuned” to destroy chemical weapons without spreading toxic materials for miles as happened in Iraq. These weapons are now on the Tomahawk missiles deployed in the Mediterranean to be used against Syria.

This is one of the reasons President Obama and Secretary Kerry have been so “cryptic” in discussing their attack plans, how large, how long?
This is why “boots on the ground” is considered unneeded. “Nukes on the ground” is what is planned instead.

Historically, these weapons have been used in Iraq and Afghanistan many times. There are also reports from nuclear weapons experts that the Marine barracks in Beirut may have been hit with a nuclear weapon, another used in Oklahoma City and another still in Bali.

There is clear proof one was used outside Damascus on May 4, 2013. When videos of the mushroom cloud and ball lightning went viral, there was no attempt at a denial.

Control and spin
A key component of a “secret nuke” strategy is calling any reports that contradict official mythology “conspiracy theory.” Pundits and comedians like Jon Stewart, Wolf Blitzer or Rush Limbaugh are key players.

Other totally controlled outlets, Murdoch’s Fox News and Wall Street Journal are, perhaps, the worst followed by DailyBeast.com and Newsweek, Jane Harmon’s AIPAC propaganda rags.

The newest entry is the Huffington Post, saturated with sex and “celebs,” used yesterday to attack Russian videos of Syrian rebels lobbing sarin shells.

A report of a nuclear attack, no matter how much science, as Dr. Chris Busby can attest, will ever hit the western press.

However, a Syrian rebel can film a gas attack, brag about doing it on video and post it on Youtube and it is virtually invisible.

Controlled news has driven the US into using unthinkable weapons, into staging horrific acts of terror and, if possible, being exceeded in every way by Israel.

Targeted individuals
There is mounting evidence that individuals known as “targeted persons” are subjected to attacks that include stalking, threats, staged incidents (accidents and murder/suicide among these) but also use of secret technologies.

The individuals are test subjects, possible security threats, whistleblowers or “Oswald” types. The US has an inventory of several thousand “targeted individuals” who, on command, as in the Charles Bronson film, “Telefon,” are ready to commit acts of terror.

Supporting these operations are “crisis actor” groups, coincidental “security drills (often Israeli companies but others are used too), and a slew of “alphabet soup” agencies, ready to plant evidence, silence real witnesses or commit the acts of terror themselves if the chosen targeted “patsies” fail in their mission.

Ft. Hood, Gabby Giffords, Sandy Hook and the Navy Yard are but a few.

John Anthony Hill was criminally charged in Britain for exposing the 7/7 terror attacks and found not guilty in a trial that was based on substantiating his claims, proving “7/7” was false flag terrorism.

Brain attack tech
Most have heard about MK Ultra or the film “Men Who Stare at Goats.” This mixture of “conspiracy theory” and disinformation media humor is used to limit public knowledge of decades-old programs that have cost endless billions.
What programs?
Here is a partial list:

- “Neural communications”: This capability is meant to allow troops to talk to each other by thought alone, through receptors in their helmets. Sounds crazy? This is an ongoing DARPA project with billions spent, but there was never an intent to use this as authorized. This pure “thought control” project has already yielded results that we may well have seen in the recent terror shootings across the US.
- “Induced psychosis”: Remember the US invasion of Panama? President Noriega was subjected to “rock music” played at unimaginable levels. Today, Israeli companies openly market energy weapon technologies that are capable of causing everything from physical pain to feelings of panic and even suicide. Soon you will be buying them on EBay. The real systems, first developed for use through mobile communications by Ericsson Corporation, are capable of inducing severe psychosis, paranoia and triggering violence.
- “Death rays”: The most advanced “black programs” are capable of inducing ideas but also of causing death. Most common is suicide, sometimes tied to induce terrorist acts.
- “Full Scale”: Targeted individuals most often have their own private “crisis actors.” The important ones are assigned mentally disturbed or abusive “partners,” selected to play on personal weaknesses such as guilt or excessive kindness. Attacks often include induced illnesses, most often fatal cancers or aneurisms, the killing of pets or staged accidents or suicides involving children or grandchildren.

The existence of these programs is fully confirmed, but it is the scale that is frightening. These aren’t programs, they are an industry.

“We got it, let’s use it!”
Breakthroughs in quantum physics have facilitated capabilities unimagined, far beyond simple extrasensory perception or “remote viewing.”

Advanced energy research looking into Tesla’s investigations of the “ether” for obtaining and transmitting energy has yielded capabilities that will never be made public.

“Non-linear” advanced technologies sneak into the consumer world from time to time, products developed and manufactured prior to the development of the processes required to create them.

This has given political leaders a “bag of tricks” that lets them do whatever they desire and never have to answer for it.

The ethos backing this up is entirely Malthusian. Victims, be they dozens or millions, are simply “useless eaters” as Henry Kissinger, chief proponent of the use of “black tech.”

Kissinger “made his bones” as an advocate for the use of nuclear weapons over conventional force. His policies from 40 years ago or more are a reality today.

His thinking, that humanity is no more than cattle, his value system, is the one we are seeing today, pouring out of Washington.

Do we need to ask how humanity has sunk so low? Perhaps, are we naïve in referring to political and economic elites as part of humanity?
Do we have evidence that they consider themselves as such?

The Third Reich of Dreams

The Third Reich of Dreams

Frank Berube

“Lose your dreams and you will lose your mind.”

Ruby Tuesday, The Rolling Stones

The dreamer is describing not only how one comes to accept conditions as they are but also the state of mind in which such acceptance grows. This consists of a readiness to be deceived and a tendency to construct alibis for oneself; once one has been conditioned long enough by the right combination of pressure and propaganda, he has become so receptive and malleable that all will to resist disappears.

During the 1930′s, Nazi Germany’s rise to totalitarian power was well under way. Warning signs of the terror to come was being felt by increasing numbers of people. Among them was a young woman of great courage and insight. Charlotte Beradt recorded and collected people’s dreams about the Nazi government’s domination of their lives; dreams that tell of the painful political realities of the emerging Nazi State. In his essay at the conclusion of the volume, published in 1966, Bruno Bettelheim remarked that it was a shocking experience reading this book of dreams and seeing how effectively the Nazis murdered sleep, “forcing its enemies to dream dreams that showed that resistance was impossible and that safety lay only in compliance.”

The following dream was dreamt by a man in his 30′s living in Berlin during the early years of Nazi rule. It demonstrates the potential of our dreamworlds to produce stories that reflect the psycho-political conditions under which we live. Something within us is registering these disturbing vibrations and sending out signals of danger to the frightened conscious mind.

The author of the dream was told by the Nazi authorities to report to the Berlin Railway Station on a Sunday morning to collect money for the Party. Before leaving he said to himself, “What the heck, I won’t be bothered.” So he brought along a pillow and blanket – no collection box – and took it easy.

After about an hour Hitler appeared, wearing high patent-leather boots, dressed as a comical cross between a circus clown and a lion tamer. The dreamer watched Hitler use exaggerated, artificial gestures to win the hearts of schoolchildren. Then he adopted a stern attitude as he lectured a group of older boys and girls. At last he turned to impress a group of old maids by acting coquettish. Suddenly the dreamer began to feel uncomfortable under his blanket. He grew afraid that Hitler would notice that he had no collection box – he might be recognized as one of “the group of those who pretend to sleep.” If caught, he imagined confronting Hitler and telling him that he doesn’t approve of concentration camps.

Hitler continued his appearances around the station with different groups of people, and the dreamer was amazed to see that no one seemed to be afraid of him. He noticed that someone even kept a cigarette in his mouth while talking with him, and many more were smiling! After completing his stint at the station, he picked up his pillow and blanket and went down the main stairway in the station. Then the dreamer saw Hitler standing at the top of the stairs, concluding his appearance with a song from the imaginary opera, Magica, making extremely theatrical gestures, which had the crowd mesmerized. Everybody applauded. He bowed and then went tearing down the stairs, looking foolish in his purple trousers and holding his trainer’s whip. Hitler passed by with no bodyguards and stood in line at the cloakroom like everyone else, waiting patiently to get his coat. At this point the dreamer thought, “Maybe he’s not so bad after all. Maybe I needn’t take the trouble to oppose him.” All at once he realized that instead of a pillow and blanket, he was carrying a collection box.

This dreamer sees Hitler as a manipulator par excellence – an animal trainer – and yet the big act that Hitler puts on works in the end: the dreamer begins to feel that things are not half bad and maybe he doesn’t have to worry about Hitler after all. Winston Smith, sipping his Victory Gin with tears of gratitude in his eyes, reached a similar conclusion about Big Brother, although he got there by a different route.  The average person struggling with their conscience in the face of dehumanizing conditions, is, like Orwell’s hero, “a hero who is basically neither good nor bad, up against the effects of a political system which in the end leaves open but one direction in which he can move – the one toward the movement.” Individuals are embedded in a repressive psycho-political system, unable to act independently or resist the forces that are propelling the motion of society in the direction of Nazi domination.

The Third Reich of Dreams is a book that tells a compelling and revealing story about the hidden side of WWII. It portrays how the German subconscious mind was invaded by totalitarian fear as the Nazi’s plans reached fever pitch during the 1930′s. The grooming of Hitler and his evil cadre, the rise to power of the Nazi State, and the mobilization of the country for Total War, were all carried out with cold-blooded determination and ruthless precision by human beings whose very souls had been violated and whose minds were controlled.

Beradt collected hundreds of dreams during 1933 through 1939, referring to them as “diaries of the night,” providing a view into the inner world of fear and confusion people were feeling as their personal integrity disintegrated and their lives fell apart. The dreams she selected for the book are drawn from the lives of ordinary people who found themselves confronting the mental terror of The Third Reich during the early years of the Nazi regime. These dreams show that this was a war on the human spirit. It was secretly about capturing inner ground and blowing apart the national psyche, destroying all the ground gained over centuries of psycho-spiritual development, doing away with a whole generation of artists, writers, and scientists, and burying the work of these creative people underneath the rubble and ruin of Total War.

As American citizens who live in the land of the free and the home of the brave, we should have learned from Nazi Germany that psychologically terrified people can be pressured into giving up their democratic rights and living in a police state, once their political power has been stolen from them and their lives have been turned upside down. We now know that Nazi propaganda was bolstered with psychotronic technology that fostered an atmosphere of psycho-political terror, desensitizing feelings and thought control. We have to remember that for over a decade, the frightened minds of average German citizens were unable or unwilling to resist the insane domination of Nazi terror, and so could not, or would not, think for themselves and question authority. The horrifying things that were happening were beyond anyone’s control, and so the public was swept along by overpowering Nazi propaganda and State terror, too much in fear to object to the abuse of power, or to do anything about the atrocities carried out against Jews and Communists or others who threatened to undermine The Third Reich.

The Nazis imprisoned and executed people whom they considered sub-human, and those considered enemies of the State. Getting the public to accept this, however tenuous their consent, is something not entirely explainable or understandable by simply saying that Hitler hypnotized the masses. How can human beings stand by and allow their government to enslave and kill people in such a brutal manner and find an acceptable justification for it? Such inhuman behavior cannot be explained merely in terms of people being numbed into apathy for the fate of their fellow humans and allowing themselves to be herded into the mass hysteria of a faceless mob. We must look for the causes of this herd mentality beyond the explanation of “nationalistic frenzy.” Racism and Ideology only go so far in explaining the soul-boggling horror involved in their participation in mass slaughter. Patriotism and Blood are the “front men” for the Nazi State, providing a vessel for the forces of the collective unconscious to pour into.

It’s because of the work of renegade researchers and writers like Charlotte Beradt that we are able to see beyond the conventional historical perspective and open our minds to reviewing controversial material, and hopefully coming to understand, however vaguely, the underground forces and occult underpinnings of The Third Reich. Propaganda and state terror carried the population along on a wave of animistic hysteria, with millions obeying the rules and regulations of the Nazi mental status quo. Yet, Beradt writes, “from the very beginning people from all walks of life and in all their fear and anxiety were able, dreaming, to recognize the aims and principles of totalitarianism and foresee their consequences, so that their dreams ring prophetic in retrospect.”

Today, sixty years later in the USA, the technology of mass mind control has vastly improved and is deadly in its effectiveness. Consequently, the population of the United States is in a worse situation in terms of being forced into mental slavery than were the inhabitants of Germany, Italy, or Russia earlier in the century. American citizens are facing the 90′s form of totalitarian fear, and just like the German people thought sixty years ago, we believe that it could never happen here. But it’s clear by now that the vast majority of Americans still do not possess an adequate understanding of how their minds work, nor are many citizens any closer to comprehending how the national psyche is being manipulated; in short, we’re unable to come to terms with the fact that our subconscious minds are being controlled.

Only century-spanning, trans-generational, psychic genocide can account for the subjugation of the mind that made possible the appalling events of the 20th century. Mass mind control technology has made leaps and bounds of progress over the past half-century; it has succeeded in keeping millions bound to lower levels of consciousness and a self-absorbed existence. Our minds are sinking into the paralyzing stupor of the mental status quo, while our freedom slips away from us and we come closer to facing the apocalyptic abyss that the German people faced over a half century ago.

The Mental Status Quo
There are many inexplicable things about our volatile century that beg understanding, that are more often than not left without answers, or even end up producing more questions. Nothing much can be understood without knowing oneself within. Our inner world is much bigger than we imagine, as our dreams allow us to see. There is a hyper-dimensional world of vast inner space within your mind that is beyond the reach of the senses, accessible only by transcendent means. This hidden inner world exists beyond the perceptual horizon of the mental status quo – it is the undiscovered realm of the deep psyche where our dreams originate. Unknown to the programmed mind, your awakened perception has access to other dimensions beyond the brain and the senses, and hidden somewhere in that vast uncharted territory is your inner self, your true self. But ego-bound people are afraid that if they sail too far beyond the perceptual horizon of the mental status quo (MSQ), they’ll fall off into an inner abyss, like the ships of the flat earth that sailed too far beyond the ocean’s horizon and plunged over the edge into bottomless space.

During earlier centuries, people from Europe knew nothing of the existence of the continent that would become known as America. These days we’re prevented from exploring higher states of consciousness by an ocean of unconsciousness that isolates us on an inner island, limiting our perceptual horizons to a short egotistical range. There are still too many people in this world who are unaware that these other dimensions of consciousness are part of our inner geography.

Be warned that there are political consequences for living in our own worlds, as life in Nazi Germany has shown us. As citizens of America we can already see ourselves losing our right to privacy, and we have to retreat further and further away from society in order to escape from the ubiquitous intrusions of the media and other silent invasions of our psyche. Soon there will be nowhere to hide and no privacy for anyone, and we will be facing the horrible political conditions faced by the citizens of Germany during the 30′s and 40′s as their world fell apart around them, a scary situation illustrated by the following dream.

In 1934, a forty-five-year-old doctor dreamt that he was relaxing on the couch after his consultations reading a book, when suddenly the walls of his apartment disappeared. He looked around and saw, to his horror, that all the other apartments didn’t have walls anymore either. Then he heard a loudspeaker boom, “According to the decree of the 17th of this month on the Abolition of Walls…”

Some time later he realized what had provoked the dream. His block warden came around to ask him why he had not hung a flag at his window. Putting him off, he thinks, “Not in my four walls…” In another dream he finds that the only real escape from the “Life Without Walls” was withdrawing from the public realm, because those who give in and go along become part of the Nazi scene and must surrender their autonomy and conform to whatever mental and social conditions that are required of them. “Now that no home is private any more, I’m living at the bottom of the sea.”

The Nazi MSQ
Conforming to the Nazi MSQ means that you’re going along with a set of rules for inner behavior – thought control – while conforming to political conditions means that you’re doing what the authorities say – social control. As a result of having to deal with the rules and regulations of the Nazi regime, people were being coerced into maintaining the mental status quo, a state-approved way of thinking and behaving that came to be known and practiced by everyone, because to say or do otherwise meant getting into trouble with the authorities and putting your life in danger.

The Nazi mentality provided the mind with the linguistic rules and regulations of the German MSQ, which enabled its citizens to think and speak in standard terms. This manufactured mindset channeled thought and conversation in the direction of conformity, and accounted for the underlying set of beliefs that made up the dogma of The Third Reich, a state-sanctioned view of reality.

In 1933 the author of the following dream was a 30-year old, liberal-minded, pampered woman with no profession. In the dream, street signs had been abolished and posters were set up in their place on every corner, proclaiming the twenty words people were not allowed to say. The words were listed in English, the first was “Lord” and the last was “I,” and the rest were unclear. This dream anticipates the radical restrictions on freedom of expression about matters relating to one’s identity and beliefs that totalitarian regimes have exploited during the 20th century. The posters were substituted for the prohibited street signs, conveying the idea that people had lost their direction, were looking for signposts in their lives, and were finding that they couldn’t speak about God or reflect on who they were. The dream is a parable that illustrates “the dialectical relationship that exists between the individual and the dictatorship.”

The Untold Story of The Unconscious Mind
“What if something should go wrong with the psyche?,” asked psychologist Carl Jung over 30 years ago. Jung was a cartographer of inner space and provided humanity with maps and charts of the lost realms of the deep psyche. Without the knowledge and inspiration of Freud and Jung and other pioneering psychologists, we would still be crawling around in the dark of the mind, classifying altered states of consciousness in religious terms and dumping any kind of transcendent experience into the psychotic and delusional category. During this century it became possible to study the psyche scientifically, enabling us to understand the subconscious basis of conscious awareness, whereas before this century you could only talk about the unconscious mind in occult or religious terms.

Telling the story of the unconscious mind is difficult because it’s not so easy to put into words. All the words that could be useful have been taken over by the authorities and corrupted to the core. The reason we find it so difficult to think clearly or speak coherently about the hanky-panky going on in the unconscious mind is because most of the terms used to describe renegade states of consciousness have been stripped of their original meaning and painted over with a glossy sheen. Dictionaries and encyclopedia’s give descriptions of altered states of consciousness and non-sensory dimensions of the mind like they were psychotic episodes to be neuro-chemically controlled or rendered inactive by psycho-surgery.

It’s useless to depend on words when they have so little power over the shackled thoughts of the mentally enslaved, who wouldn’t dream of leaving the prison even if they had the keys to unlock their cells. Talking about alien ideas is something so full of verbal booby traps that it just about ruins any chance of seriously investigating what’s really going on in any other world except this one. The terms used to describe our inner world as natural and sacred have lost their ability to inspire and guide us, because their meaning has been changed and now we have no structure of thought upon which to build an understanding of ourselves.

Controlling thought in this way reduces the threat that the mind might be led astray by renegade thinking, perhaps discovering the inner curtain and pulling it aside, exposing the shady dealings of the subconscious mind and putting an end to the long-running ego drama. Inner explorers who want to throw some light on the darker side are forced to use matches to illuminate the way, because orthodox religion, behavioral psychology, and materialistic science are drawing most of the illumination from these concepts through their domination of consensus reality and control of language. You can’t talk about mind control, can’t talk about a secret government, can’t talk about hyper-dimensional realities, can’t talk about hidden history, can’t talk about the age-long story of the Human Spirit, and you can’t so much as whisper the naked truth that a big chunk of our mind is missing. Whatever is enforcing unconsciousness must be very powerful because it will not allow any self-reflection or renegade knowledge to threaten its subliminal authority and challenge its hold on the conscious mind.

The Guilt of The Guiltless
The woman who dreamt about the twenty words that couldn’t be spoken considered herself to be quite self-centered, yet her dreams reflect a deep understanding of what was at stake if one surrendered their mind to the Nazis. She had a series of dreams between April and September 1933. Not long after her dream about God and Self, she dreamt that she was all dressed up sitting in a box at an opera house with several tiers, being admired by many people as she watched her favorite opera, “The Magic Flute.” When it came to the line, “This is the devil certainly,” some policemen came stomping in and told her a machine had registered that she thought about Hitler when she heard the word “devil.” She looked imploringly to the crowd for some sign of help, but they all just ignored her. She glanced over to the old gentleman in the adjoining box trying to get his eye, but he turned and spit at her.

This dream manages to capture the way so-called respectable people behave when they’re called upon to respond to unfairness and injustice in their midst. The opera house with its levels of curved tiers is filled with people who do nothing but sit there and stare straight ahead when someone who they could help is in trouble. Later, the woman described the thought-control machine in her dream as being electric with a maze of wires, envisioning remote-control devices and other electronic methods of monitoring and control that were coming into use during the 30′s and 40′s.

One night, after being deeply disturbed by radio reports about book burnings, in which the words “truckloads” and “bonfires” were used repeatedly, she dreamt that all books were being collected and burned. Not wanting to part with the copy of “Don Carlos” that she had since her schooldays, she hid it under the maid’s bed. When the Stormtroopers arrived to take away the books, they marched straight to the maid’s room, pulled the book out from under the bed, and threw it on the truck. At this point she discovered that she hid an atlas and not her copy of “Don Carlos,” and felt guilty.

When we dream, there are psychological mechanisms that censor our unconscious motives by distorting them, preventing us from realizing that which we do not wish to be aware. If people are being subjected to extraordinary conditions of control caused by political repression, their dream content will be distorted. One explanation is that the mind is attempting to alter the circumstances that are leading to surrendering control of our lives. Because of this self-censorship, many dream scenarios that deal with themes of submission and complicity have bizarre overtones, in an attempt to change the character of threatening thoughts before they manifest themselves in our dreams.

In her next dream, the milk man, gasman, news vendor, baker, and plumber are standing around her in a circle, holding out their bills. This did not upset her until she noticed a chimney sweep among them. The 2 S’s in the German word for chimney sweep, Schornsteinfeger, along with his black outfit, made him appear like a threatening gestapo character. It reminded her of the children’s game, Schwarze Kochin, holding out their bills with arms uplifted in the familiar gesture, chanting, “Your guilt cannot be doubted.” What had provoked the dream was that, just the day before, her tailor’s son showed up wearing the uniform of a Stormtrooper, to collect the bill she owed his father. She was outraged because, before Hitler, it had been customary to send the bill through the mail, and she demanded an explanation for a government official collecting the money. The embarrassed young man replied that it had no special significance, he just happened to be in the neighborhood and wearing his uniform when he stopped by. “That’s ridiculous,” she said, but paid the bill anyway.

The woman was aware of how the newly established block warden system functioned and how intrusions were sanctioned by the party uniform. Her dream indicates that she felt guilty about yielding to slight pressure and settling the account. A minor sin of omission, but a significant one, if it leads to more grievous abdications and lapses, “barely recognizable injustices” which keep building up, producing a repressed state of mind that is hard to describe. “The guilt of the guiltless,” comes from the accumulation of these tiny abdications and hiding them away in the subconscious, where they show up in disguise in dreams.

The Language of Consciousness
It’s simply not possible to think about and discuss matters of importance such as the survival of the life of the mind and the preservation of our democratic rights, if the terms and concepts used to describe psychospiritual freedom have had their original meaning squeezed out of them. Today, we cannot speak of threats to our inner freedom, because terms like mind control, secret government, conspiracy theory, the unconscious, paranoia, hidden history – have negative connotations attached to them and deflect the mind away from investigation and study. It’s an academic “given” that all these subjects are not to be taken seriously. The inner world beyond the borders of the MSQ appears incomprehensible to people who have never experienced other dimensions of their psyche. But there is no question that an unconscious realm of the human psyche exists. Its psychological conquest and subliminal colonization has been the deepest darkest secret of the 20th century.

Influencing how we think by controlling language keeps our thoughts safely within the bounds of the MSQ, leaving us quite content with ourselves and perfectly willing to spend the rest of our lives like this. Unable to seriously address things like psychotropic warfare and a global cryptocracy, is a good example of language controlling thought, because if you speak of these things you’ll be classified as a “conspiracy theorist” or you’ll be thought of as downright crazy by members in good standing of the MSQ Club.

The dream-author had several dreams that repeatedly dealt with the new environmental conditions of total control. The woman’s dreams pictured her neighbors sitting in a large circle around her, silent and expressionless, leaving her more imprisoned and lost in each one. Finally, one dream says it all by containing no images, only words: “Am going to bury myself in lead. Tongue is already leaden, locked in lead. Will lie immobile, shot full of lead. When they come, I’ll say, ‘The leaden cannot rise up.’ Oh! They want to throw me in the water because I’m so leaden…”

She had this dream on New Year’s Eve, 1933, after the traditional pouring of molten lead. Like the doctor’s dream of seeking refuge at the bottom of the sea, she wishes to become buried in lead, wanting to completely withdraw from the public realm and hide from herself in the process. These dream-fables are a warning of the insidious mental intrusions that are gradually taking over the consciousness of the people, interfering with the relationship one has with their inner self.

The profusion of prohibitive regulations, along with the steady control the population, were placing increasing pressure on people’s lives, which wore down their will and tore away their defenses, leaving many people compliant slaves at the feet of their mental masters in only a few short years. Yet while this may have been taking place imperceptibly, so that people became gradually accustomed to the takeover of their minds, their dreams were showing this process taking place quite clearly. All the small steps it took to get to this groveling position are there to be seen in their dreams. If one reflects on such dreams and discerns their wisdom, perhaps people wouldn’t allow themselves to become disconnected from their inner selves, and they wouldn’t make very good Nazis. Which is why even dreamland is invaded by The Third Reich.

The MSQ Renegades
Drowning people’s lives in prohibitive regulations drove some people to the brink and others into denial. If they had no way of dealing with these forces of coercion and repression, the only thing they could do is surrender to the authorities and submit their lives to the will of the Nazi State. But some people must attempt to resist these insidious intrusions into their minds and try to stop this domination of their lives by performing simple acts of defiance. Everyday refusals to take part in the ritual destruction of human dignity show the Spirit surviving in the midst of dehumanization. These are the free thinkers who the authorities fear the most, because people who have discovered their inner power and are willing to stand up to The Third Reich are more threatening to the stability of the Nazi State than all their other enemies combined.

The following dream was dreamt by a student whose brother had been arrested, which caused considerable strain and difficulty in his life. There was a party going on in a large building. People who could be arrested for political crimes against the Nazi State, for example degenerate artists and performers, one-time socialists, and relatives of concentration camp inmates, were all sitting in a small attic room, making fun of the well-dressed guests arriving downstairs. The dreamer crept downstairs and overheard someone say that the whole house was filled with tension, and that the stairs to the attic had caught fire as a result.! “The suspects have to be saved ” he yelled into the bedlam. But they only shrugged, “Why shouldn’t the suspects go up in flames?” Suspects are to be defined by the State, and so they get to say who are suspects. In short, everyone is a potential enemy of the state, lumping together internee and relative, artist and friend, activist and employer, into the single category of suspect.

Communists can be dealt with using terror tactics and political subversion, but ordinary people who are inner freedom fighters are another matter altogether. They’re not so easy to dominate and they remain a threat to the State by defending the Individual Human Spirit. They won’t allow their mind to be taken over by any outer authority and they will not participate in any activity where they have to betray themselves or hurt others. As long as such people exist, there is a force for the Nazis to reckon with that is beyond their capacity to deal with and control, because the inner worlds of these human beings have not been violated by the insidious effects of mass mind control.

The following dream, which occurred in the autumn of 1933, was dreamt by an elderly woman who was a mathematics teacher. In her dream it was forbidden under penalty of death to write anything having to do with mathematics. This woman took refuge in a night club, which in waking life she would never have set foot in. The place was filled with drunkards and prostitutes and the music was blaring on. She took a piece of tissue paper from her pocketbook and wrote down a couple of equations in invisible ink, all the time being frightened to death.

Her dream reflects how absurd it is to attempt to ban something that people naturally do everyday. When asked to comment on her dream, she replied simply, “It is impossible to forbid what they are forbidding here!” In her dream, she chose a nightclub to perform her act of defiance, someplace no one would expect to find her, and a place where other forbidden things are going on.

Sitting at a table in the dimly-lit club, she works with the tools of spies to copy the equations that will ensure that her profession survives the destructive forces set against it. As the environment is being transformed by the machinations of the Nazi State, people are becoming alienated from one another and disconnected from the activities that make up their daily lives. Individuals are being taken away from their communities and being turned into obedient servants of the Reich. Yet there are always defiant ones who resist becoming dehumanized, because they are keeping alive within themselves the flame of the Individual Human spirit.

The American MSQ
Our media-saturated minds are being anesthetized with overdoses of doublethink and overflowing mouthfuls of newspeak. And our beleaguered brains are being subliminally and vibrationally assaulted everyday, to the point of dangerous psychic depletion and extreme spiritual vulnerability. New dimensions of language are needed to orient our minds to hyperdimensional realities and to provide a para-linguistic structure to work with these renegade ideas. The transcendent dimensions of language that address the life of the mind are kept out of reach of our thought processes and continue to remain inaccessible to most of us. There are powerful occult forces keeping people unconscious, so it may be expecting too much to think that we could overcome our intense fear of waking up to the transcendent dimensions of our lives.

As Orwell warned, once you take over the language, there is thought control, and then it becomes impossible to think for oneself or question the authorities. What is needed is for each mind to take back the language and personally get rid of all the hype and trivia given to terms whose meaning relates to secret dimensions of consciousness and hidden aspects of history. We need a viable language that is equal to the hyper-dimensional realities it is attempting to describe. In a mathematical way, physics was confronted by the same problem earlier in the century, when its formulas and equations ran up against hyper-dimensional phenomena it just couldn’t explain with current theories. There had to be a bigger picture to see what was happening, and relativity and quantum theories provided that greater perspective.

With the new world order closing in fast, our language needs to undergo a corresponding revolution, as the written word attempts to define and conceptualize other dimensions of reality beyond the range of the MSQ and the prevailing consensus reality. There is no other way to approach this perceptual transformation of our minds: the power of the word – freely thought, spoken, and written. Our psycho-spiritual freedom depends upon their survival.

The Upraised Arm
During the 80′s & 90′s, American citizens have lost, and are still losing, more of our political power and rights through the encroachment on the freedom of the individual of frightening federal laws, but many of us are waking up to what’s going on behind our backs, or maybe I should say, beyond our comprehension. People today are confronting the same fear of unknown forces that the German people were facing during the 30′s, and the subconscious minds of individuals are registering the steady erosion of freedom and its debilitating effects on their daily lives. As the new world order is closing in fast, perhaps people in the United States are dreaming similar dreams.

Three days after Hitler seized power in Germany, Herr S., a 60 year old factory owner, dreamt that he was under so much pressure trying to reconcile his worldly ambitions with his conscience, that he “cracked” from the stress, “breaking his backbone,” leaving him a moral invalid, and no one even laid a hand on him. In the dream, Goebbels was visiting his factory and had all the workers line up in two rows facing each other. Herr S. had to stand in the middle and raise his arm in the Nazi salute. It took him half an hour to get his arm up, inch by inch. Goebbels showed neither approval nor disapproval as he watched him struggle. When he finally got his arm up, Goebbels said, “I don’t want your salute” then turned and went to the door. There the factory owner stood, arm raised, in the midst of his workers, only able to keep himself from collapsing by staring at Goebbels’ clubfoot as he limped out of the factory. As so he stood until he woke up.

This dream recurred many times and in one version, “The effort of lifting my arm was go great that sweat poured down my face like tears, as if I were crying in front of Goebbels.” And in another: “I looked to my workers for a sign of comfort but their faces showed absolute emptiness, not even scorn or contempt.” Finally, while struggling to lift his arm, his back – his “backbone” – breaks. This was a man with lifelong political convictions and who had a strong paternalistic attitude toward his employees. Through several demeaning episodes he is forced to humiliate and debase himself in his own domain in front of his employees, by having to submit to conditions that make him lose his self-respect, and through being coerced into conforming to laws that are unfair and immoral. Herr S. was once a proud man who commanded respect, but now “he feels alienated not only from all that is real in his life but also from his own character, which has lost its authenticity.”

Dreams such as the ones Beradt collected were dreamt by ordinary people confronting repressive conditions, who were looking for psychological ways of dealing with the silent impact of explosive social changes. Charlotte had difficulty gathering material because people were afraid to confide their dreams, and she often heard them say, “I dreamt it was forbidden to dream, but I did anyway.” She states that the dreams produced by German citizens during the 1930′s, unlike the dreams of the victims of wars and revolution of previous centuries, were distinctive in character and content, because “their origin in time and place is explicit: they could only have sprung from man’s paradoxical existence under a twentieth-century totalitarian regime, and most of them nowhere but under the Hitler dictatorship in Germany.”

At some point during her investigation, Beradt realized that these dreams were important seismic readings registering the debilitating effects of totalitarian stress on the minds and lives of ordinary German citizens. Looking at how each dream reflected a personal journey toward dehumanization, with the dream-authors backing away step by step from their former way of life, demonstrated to her that “the minor incident, the personally relevant factor, shows how Nazi totalitarianism functioned.” She wrote:

“It occurred to me from time to time that a record should be kept of such dreams, a thought that now became a plan. They might one day serve as evidence when the time came to pass judgement on National Socialism as a historical phenomenon, for they seemed to reveal a great deal about people’s deepest feelings and reactions as they become part of the mechanisms of totalitarianism. When a person sits down to keep a diary, this is a deliberate act, and he remolds, clarifies, or obscures his reactions. But while seeming to record seismographically the slightest effects of political events on the psyche, these dreams – diaries of the night – were conceived independently of their author’s conscious will. They were, so to speak, dictated to them by the dictatorship. Dream imagery might thus help to describe the structure of a reality that was just on the verge of becoming a nightmare.”

At the end of her book Beradt says that these dreams contain a warning, “the warning that totalitarian tendencies must be recognized before they become overt – before the guise is dropped … before people no longer may speak the word “I” and must guard their tongue so that not even they understand what they say, and before we begin to actually live the “Life Without Walls.”

Helping Syria “Remove Grounds for American Aggression” Is Creating Grounds for US Aggression

[France can't let the Americans steal all of the thunder, especially in their old stomping grounds.  This is another Imperial deception, intended to gain UN authority under Chapter 7 at the Security Council.  Russia stands ready to repeat the same mistake it made in Libya, by going along with this Imperial initiative.  Putin tried to take Kerry's "one week" threat and turn it on its head, by convincing Assad accept this poison chalice.  If he drinks it, by agreeing to the Lavrov deal, then he will be repeating his previous grave error, which he made in trusting his fate to the UN inspectors, who were allegedly allowed in to prove rebel chem weapon use.  By agreeing to allow the investigators to enter Syria for their witch hunt in the first place, he opened the door for Bandar's pre-planned chemical aggression.   It doesn't matter whether the Saudis supplied the chemicals or they bribed the Syrian officers behind it, Bandar is still responsible for the absurdly-timed attack. 
If there were any justice in this world, then Saudi Arabia would be held liable for 1,400 gassed Syrians, and they would now be under the Tomahawk gun.  This probably fatal lapse in judgement on Assad's part, allowed the pre-announced Qatar-financed false flag chem attack to go forward, despite previous media reports' warnings.  If Syria's chemical arsenal is as large as it is reported to be by the Western media, then it will probably take more than the allowed week to transfer control to some unnamed international authority.  Even if Assad is given more time to meet the Imperial demands and he successfully complies with them, there will still be some other excuse invented to seemingly justify the planned destruction of Syria by America's Islamist armies and the USAF/Navy air support which will make it all possible.  Once again, the Pentagon will serve as an "Islamist air force," for its terrorist hordes.
Russian leaders are either complicit in America's games, or they are a lot dumber than the rest of us had hoped they would prove to be, if they cannot establish some insurmountable obstacles in any UN legislation, which will make another Libyan-type of double-cross impossible.  The Russian move to help Syria to "remove the grounds for American aggression" is a serious error in tactics and strategy.  By admitting that the Pentagon has some sort of legal or moral authority right now, to do whatever it wants inside of Syria, a Catch-22 situation will have been brought about.  By admitting that an Imperial authority now exists, either Syria or its Russian sponsor would actually be empowering the storm troopers WITH that authority.  However this grand deception eventually plays-out, Bashar al-Asad is certain to lose his head in the end.]

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius: “We have decided to take the initiative”

France will put a resolution to the UN Security Council to place Syria’s chemical weapons under international control so they can be destroyed, Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius says.

He said it would threaten “extremely serious” consequences if Syria breached its conditions.

Russia also has a plan to put Syria’s chemical weapons under international control, it says.

Syria has said it accepts the Russian proposal, though details are sketchy.

“We held a very fruitful round of talks with [Russian] Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov yesterday [Monday], and he proposed an initiative relating to chemical weapons. And in the evening, we agreed to the Russian initiative,” Russian news agency Interfax quotes Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallim, who is in Moscow, as saying.

This would “remove the grounds for American aggression”, he added.

Earlier, Mr Fabius, who was speaking at a news conference in Paris, said the resolution, based around five points, would demand that Syria “bring fully to light” its chemical weapons programme.

The measure would also set up international inspections and controls of the dismantling process.

The resolution would be tabled under Chapter 7 of the UN charter covering possible military and non-military action to restore peace, Mr Fabius added.

The plan had been discussed before, he said, but had probably been advanced by the pressure applied in recent weeks.

The Russians have blocked all previous French-led efforts at the Security Council, says the BBC’s Christian Fraser in Paris.

FSA fighters
On the ground, the Syrian conflict is still raging

Both France and the United States are wary of an Iraq-style game of cat and mouse – but they are prepared to give the Moscow-backed plan a chance, our correspondent adds.

What the French are keen to avoid, Mr Fabius said, is a plan that is only there as a delaying tactic, which is why all options, including the threat of a strike, will remain on the table, our correspondent says.

Moscow plan

Syria’s chemical weapons

  • CIA believes Syria’s chemical weapons can be “delivered by aircraft, ballistic missile, and artillery rockets”
  • Syria believed to possess mustard gas and sarin, and also tried to develop more toxic nerve agents such as VX gas
  • Syria has not signed the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) or ratified the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC)

In Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, at a press conference with the Libyan foreign minister, has been speaking about Moscow’s plan to put Syrian’s chemical weapons stockpiles under international control.

There have been few details so far, but Mr Lavrov said Moscow was “preparing a concrete proposal which will be presented to all interested sides, including the US… a workable, specific, concrete plan”.

He said he had spoken to US Secretary of State John Kerry on the telephone about this on Monday.

Mr Lavrov said the Russian initiative was “not a purely Russian initiative… It grew out of contacts we’ve had with the Americans”.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Barack Obama discussed the idea on the sidelines of a G20 summit last week, Mr Putin’s spokesman said on Tuesday.

Mr Lavrov noted Mr Obama’s suggestion in a US TV interview that this may be a “breakthrough”.

Overnight, Mr Obama said the Russian proposal could be a breakthrough, but that he remained sceptical.

On Monday, Mr Kerry warned that not responding to the alleged use of chemical weapons by Syrian forces would be riskier than taking action.

The US claims that Mr Assad’s forces carried out a chemical attack in Damascus on 21 August, killing 1,429 people.

Mr Assad’s government blames the attack on rebels fighting to overthrow him, in a conflict that the UN says has claimed some 100,000 lives.

Chapter 7 of UN Charter

  • Action in response to threats to peace, breaches of peace and acts of aggression
  • Article 41 enables Security Council to decide measures not involving armed force
  • Can suspend economic and diplomatic relations as well as rail, sea and other communications
  • If Article 41 measures are inadequate, Article 42 enables Security Council to take action by air, sea or land forces for international peace and security

Mr Assad’s government blames the attack on rebels fighting to overthrow him, in a conflict that the UN says has claimed some 100,000 lives.

What Are the American People Prepared To Do To Stop the Mass-Murder, Barack Obama?

[SEE:  There Will Be NO “AMERICAN SPRING,” Only A Second American Revolution—Bomb Syria, Obumma, and The American People May Bomb You]

NO WAR ON SYRIA

[Saturday---200+ antiwar protestors in D.C., a good start (Protest at White House against Syria strikes).]

CALL FOR ACTION

[From all available indicators, it seems that nothing will stop the CIA President from fulfilling his appointment with oblivion.  After giving the obligatory appearance of caring what the American people say or want, the dictator Obama will move forward to start World War III in Syria, within the next few days.  What are you and I prepared to do to stop him?

WILL YOU RISK ARREST OR BODILY INJURY TO PREVENT WORLD WAR? 

At the very least, concerned Americans by the thousands must be willing to swarm the White House and Congress, but more importantly, we must establish human blockades at military bases and other government offices.  We especially have to focus upon Navy and Air Force bases, since this will be an their show (the Army share of this human tragedy will be covert).  A large enough outpouring of popular derision upon Obama and the US Navy might be enough to cause hesitation at the top of the military food chain, or outright condemnation of Obama's rush to world war, whereby the top Navy brass might emulate their predecessor, Adm. Wm. Fallon and his refusal to let nuclear war happen "on his watch."

Admiral William J. Fallon

Has anybody stopped to consider that all of those cruise missiles and other Navy hardware will be flying over the heads of the Russian fleet, which now patrols Syrian coastal waters?  If Russian and US navies come to blows, what will prevent an escalation to nuclear weapons?]

US reportedly plans for 3 days of attacks on Syria

The Pentagon is readying more intense and longer attacks on Syria than originally planned, set to last three days, the Los Angeles Times reported Sunday.

WASHINGTON, District of Columbia: The Pentagon is readying more intense and longer attacks on Syria than originally planned, set to last three days, the Los Angeles Times reported Sunday.

War planners now aim to unleash a heavy barrage of missile strikes to be followed swiftly by additional attacks on targets that may have been missed or remain standing after the initial launch, the Times cited officials as saying.

Two US officers told the newspaper that the White House has asked for an expanded target list to include “many more” than the initial list of around 50 targets.

The move is part of an effort to obtain additional firepower to damage Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s dispersed forces.

Pentagon planners are now considering using Air Force bombers, as well as five US missile destroyers currently patrolling the eastern Mediterranean Sea, to launch cruise missiles and air-to-surface missiles from far, out of range of Syrian air defences, according to the report.

The USS Nimitz aircraft carrier strike group with one cruiser and three destroyers positioned in the Red Sea can also fire cruise missiles at Syria.

“There will be several volleys and an assessment after each volley, but all within 72 hours and a clear indication when we are done,” an officer familiar with the planning told the Times.

The intensified military planning comes as President Barack Obama prepares to personally make his case to the American people and further press reluctant lawmakers on the need for action after Assad allegedly used chemical weapons on his own people last month.

Obama is scheduled to tape interviews Monday with anchors of the three major broadcast networks, as well as with PBS, CNN and Fox News.

The interviews, to air that night, will precede Obama’s address to the nation Tuesday ahead of an expected full Senate vote.

The president favours a limited attack with only a reduced number of warplanes to drop bombs over Syria, according to the Times.

Amid doubts that a limited US offensive would sufficiently hamper Assad’s military capabilities, one officer told the newspaper that the planned operation would amount to a “show of force” over several days that would not fundamentally change the situation on the ground.

The planned US strike “will not strategically impact the current situation in the war, which the Syrians have well in hand, though fighting could go on for another two years,” another US officer said.

“Authorization” of Military Force In Syria Sloppy, Cobbled-Together, Lazy Excuse For An Act of War

As always, US Congressional War Resolutions first list the lies to be taken as the truth, followed by quick reasons why the US military must act upon those lies thought of as truth, without regard for the civilian life to be sacrificed (as long as the civilians are not American).  This is another country “to be saved” by destroying it.  The White House offers us nothing but lies, yet expects us to accept them all as “the Truth”—”19 Arabs did 911,” or “we killed bin Laden.”   Now Washington expects us to endorse another war, even though this one promises to break-out into a regional war, without Obama ever establishing one iota of proof of the Syrian govt’s guilt in the Aug. 21 chemical attack, not even at the company or brigade level of the Syrian Army.   The genius warmongers in Congress will now attempt to coerce the rest of their fellow legislators into going along with another planned American “Act of Aggression,” the worst international war crime.

The Tribunal at Nuremberg called aggressive war “essentially an evil thing…to initiate a war of aggression…is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.”

Washington’s jackals are only claiming that Bashar Assad committed a “war crime,” yet they are enthusiastically prepared to commit the worst war crime of them all to punish his bad behavior.

This is the logic of Washington, my friends, the logic of madmen and psychopathic personalities, who are prepared to tell any lie, commit any war crime, kill any number of civilians, in order to maintain their illigitimate control over the rest of us.  Democracy (with a big “D”) does not exist in the United States, yet we wage war against the world under the cover of “exporting Democracy,” in order to force the nations of the world to copy the bankrupt American political system.  If we cannot get mad enough about this yet, don’t worry….I guarantee, with absolute certainty, that you will all soon be mad enough to “bite 16 penny nails,” or to take-up arms to change the grave injustices.

Many of us have been warning our fellow countrymen about this coming day of anguished paradox for Americans, for our entire adult lives.  We stand on the threshold of that dreaded anticipated day, with conspiracy theories being validated one after another, when the warnings will all prove to be true…AND IT WILL BE TOO LATE.

The great trap will have been sprung, with all of the good, obedient little rat-sheeple inside.  All that is required to prevent all of this, is for the American people to summon enough political will-power to make the cowards in Congress tremble, while we still have the Internet to make it possible.  The way to peace is to make the US Congress too afraid of pissing us off further to authorize another illegal war of aggression.

Whereas in the Syria Accountability and Lebanese Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2003, Congress found that Syria’s acquisition of weapons of mass destruction threatens the security of the Middle East and the national security interests of the United States;

Whereas the actions and conduct of the Assad regime are in direct contravention of Syria’s legal obligations under the United Nations Charter, the Geneva Conventions, and the Geneva Protocol to the Hague Convention on the Prohibition of the Use in War of Asphyxiating, Poisonous or other Gases, and of Bacteriological Methods of Warfare, and also violates standards set forth in the Chemical Weapons Convention;

Whereas Syria’s use of weapons of mass destruction and its conduct and actions constitute a grave threat to regional stability, world peace and the national security interests of the United States and its allies and partners;

“R2P” Can of Worms Reopened—Compassionate Response, Or Lawyers’ Excuse for Imperial Invasion?

Syria carnage reopens debate over ‘responsibility to protect’

By Andre Viollaz

NEW YORK — France’s President Francois Hollande on Tuesday became the first leader to raise the UN-backed “responsibility to protect” to justify possible military action against Syria.

However, world powers remain deeply divided over whether outside military intervention to halt atrocities is justified, with critics viewing the so-called R2P as a smoke screen for Western meddling in other countries’ internal affairs.

The so-called R2P doctrine was passed by the UN General Assembly in 2005 as the world sought a way to prevent a repeat of the horrors of the 1994 Rwanda genocide and the Srebrenica massacre in Bosnia.

UN leaders from Kofi Annan onwards and Western governments have hailed R2P as a humanitarian breakthrough, but its invocation, most recently in the 2011 intervention in Libya, has been controversial.

A 2005 UN summit laid down the responsibility for each state “to protect its populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.”

If a state fails to do so, the 2005 declaration committed signatories “to take collective action, in a timely and decisive manner, through the Security Council, in accordance with the Charter, including Chapter VII, on a case-by-case basis and in cooperation with relevant regional organizations as appropriate, should peaceful means be inadequate and national authorities manifestly fail to protect their populations.”

The Security Council used R2P in resolutions on Libya and Ivory Coast in 2011.

UN chief Ban Ki-moon said the use of the doctrine “came of age” when used in the resolutions that allowed military force against Libya’s Moamer Kadhafi after his forces laid siege to the city of Benghazi and the dictator vowed to hunt down and kill rebels “house by house.”

Russia and China, veto-wielding permanent members of the UN Security Council, abstained in the votes on the landmark resolutions 1970 and 1973, which allowed a no-fly zone and appropriate military strikes to protect Libyan civilians.

Russia later complained, however, that NATO went beyond the mandate and used the resolutions to bring down Kadhafi, who was eventually killed in October 2011.

Russia and China have since blocked any Security Council attempt to increase pressure on Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad, whose forces are now accused by Western nations of launching a chemical weapons strike in the Damascus suburbs last week that left hundreds dead.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has said that any “outrageous” use of chemical weapons in Syria’s 29-month old conflict would be a war crime.

The responsibility to protect can be carried out through the International Criminal Court investigations into war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide.

But as Syria is not a member, only the Security Council could refer the case, and Russia is sure to block such a move.

Under a 1950 resolution, at the start of the Korean War, the UN General Assembly decided that if the Security Council was deadlocked, the 193-member assembly could step in to defend international peace and security.

The assembly could give its approval for a military operation now, but it would take time to build up a credible majority.

Syrian Oil Ministry Announces Huge Oil and Gas find offshore, the Next Day Obama Signs Ex. Order Freezing Syrian Assets

Oil and Gas find offshore Syria motive for US Israeli mercenary uprising and bloodshed in Syria

CounterPsyOps

US GEOPOLITICAL TERRORISM PLATFORM

US GEOPOLITICAL TERRORISM PLATFORM

Why are US Israeli mercenaries in Syria?  Same reason why the US illegally attacked Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya and Israel is committing genocide against the Palestinian civilian population   – oil and gas.  The U.S. Geological Survey reported that the Levant Basin, which covers Israel, Syria, Lebanon, Cyprus and Palestine, contains around 122 trillion cubic feet of gas and at least 1.7 billion barrels of oil.

The Israeli government plans to build a floating liquefied natural gas terminal with a sea-based defense radar system off its Mediterranean coast while forming a naval force to protect what it claims is its rich offshore gas fields. However, Syria, Lebanon, Cyprus and Palestine all have Levant Basin oil and gas rights.

Israel sent its Mossad and their foreign mercenaries into Syria to help the US and its mercenaries start a bloody uprising to take from Syria its oil and gas rights in the Levant Basin. Israel attacked Palestine and is grabbing land from them to deny them their oil and gas rights in the Levant Basin. The people of Palestine are being slaughtered to extinction (genocide) because of the oil and gas in the Levant Basin.

Lebanon’s Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri said that Israel is “ignoring the fact that according to the maps the deposit extends into Lebanese waters,”  Lebanese Energy Minister Gebran Bassil said June 17 his country “will not allow Israel or any company working for Israeli interests to take any amount of our gas that is falling in our zone.” He said Noble was warned not to work close to Lebanon’s economic zone.

A coastal state is entitled to explore for oil and gas in its economic zone, which extends 200 nautical miles (370 kilometers), according to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.

The U.S. Geological Survey estimates that the area includes the coastal states of Palestine (Gaza), Lebanon and Syria. So according to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, Palestine, Lebanon and Syria are all entitled to explore and recover oil and gas in their respective economic zones.

Hundreds of US government financed mercenaries from Xe Services LL, formerly known as Blackwater, and Academi have been captured and killed by Syrian forces in Syria.  As many as 700 foreign mercenaries of Arab and Western descent along with Israeli, US and European-made weapons were seized in the Homs neighborhood of  Baba Amro in March of this year.

European journalists in Syria see a totally different story that is propagandized by the anti-sovereignty United Nations and the US government.  The picture painted by the US media does not match the reality. Foreign journalists are confirming “cross-border terrorism” from Turkey, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon into Syria.  They have uncovered evidence of the US government government involvement in the Syrian uprising.  US paid mercenaries are the ones killing innocent civilians.  Mercenaries from Xe Services LL.  Syrian government forces are battling US and foreign mercenaries in Syria. US mercenaries have illegally infiltrated Syria to start an uprising by committing terrorist acts and armed assaults against Syria’s civilian population.

On March 2nd, 2007 retired general of the United States Army Wesley Clark revealed that the US government had planned just 10 days after 9/11 to attack seven countries in five years, “starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran”. As George W Bush is quoted as saying “Mission Accomplished” for Iraq, Lebanon, Sudan, Somalia and Libya. Only 2 more to go – Syria and Iran. Obama illegally attacked Libya (didn’t seek nor get Congressional authorization for use of force or a declaration of war). Because an election is coming in the fall Obama chose again to defy Congress and blatantly violate the US Constitution and his oath of office by secretly waging an illegal war against Syria using foreign mercenaries.

While NATO and Washington condemn the Assad government, Syrian civilians from across Syria tell chilling stories of atrocities committed by foreign fighters, who kidnap and kill anyone at will. Xe mercenaries are blocking the Red Cross and Red Crescent ambulances from entering the battle stricken towns for fear that they will leak to the outside World what is really going on. Xe doesn’t want the Red Cross to witness foreign fighters fighting against Syrian government forces nor do they want the Red Cross to treat its own wounded mercenaries because a dead mercenaries can’t talk, but more importantly, can’t collect what is owed.

On June 21, 2012 the Vice-President of the Turkish Labor Party, Bulent Aslanoglu, told the United Nations that he had evidence that about six thousand foreigners of different Arab, Afghan and Turkish nationalities, have been recruited by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to commit terrorist acts in Syria.

Russia and China have both vetoed every UN Resolution put forward by the United States to use military force against Syria. Both Russia and China know that the uprising in Syria was orchestrated by the United States using CIA mercenaries. Russia and China know that the United States was involved and the United States was fabricating evidence against Syria in order to get a UN Resolution to use military force against Syria. Now that use of force is unauthorized by 2 permanent members of the UN Security Council the US is now working with the UNations to overthrow Assad using another UNdiplomatic coup. The US has brought in the butcher of Baghdad, Kofi Annan, to oversee the overthrow. Kofi Annan oversaw the “Oil for Food” genocide scheme in Iraq wherein 3 million Iraqi children were murdered by Annan when he denied them any essential humanitarian aid, including medicine and food.

An internal investigation found Annan guilty of corruption in prewar Iraq’s oil-for-food program and delivered a scathing rebuke of the former Secretary General Kofi Annan’s management of the largest U.N. humanitarian aid operation and concluded that Annan took advantage of his position to profit from the system. Kofi Annan secretly had steered lucrative Iraqi oil contracts to a Swiss company, Cotecna, where his son worked.

10 years ago the US openly attacked Iraq to overthrow its government and take control of its oil. Today, the US is secretly attacking Syria to overthrow its government and take control of its huge untapped oil and gas reserves. In late 2010 huge natural gas deposits off Syria’s Mediterranean shores were discovered. The initial results revealed that the “entire” eastern Mediterranean is swimming in huge untapped oil and gas reserves.

http://presscore.ca/2011/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/US-oil-wars.jpg

Two years ago, in June 2010, the Leviathan, the largest gas field in the Eastern Mediterranean that stretches from Egypt to Syria was discovered by Houston Texas based Noble Energy. The natural gas reserves in that find that are in Palestinian, Lebanese and Syrian territorial waters are estimated to be something in the range of 25 trillion cubic feet (Tcf). Some experts are estimating that there might also be up to 600 million barrels of oil. And that is not all. Preliminary exploration has confirmed similarly impressive reserves of gas and oil in the waters off Greece, Turkey, Cyprus and Syria.

That discovery is now causing enormous political, geopolitical as well as economic consequences. It the whole reason why Israel also has mercenaries and Mossad killing squads in Syria.

The Leviathan gas field is the reason why the US orchestrated the political uprising in Egypt and the political coup in Greece.

In December 2010, when it seemed the Greek crisis might be resolved without the huge bailouts or privatizations, Greece’s Energy Ministry formed a special group of experts to research the prospects for oil and gas in Greek waters. Greece’s Energean Oil & Gas began increased investment into drilling in the offshore waters after a successful smaller oil discovery in 2009. Major geological surveys were made. Preliminary estimates now are that total offshore oil in Greek waters exceeds 22 billion barrels in the Ionian Sea off western Greece and some 4 billion barrels in the northern Aegean Sea.

According to one Greek analyst, Aristotle Vassilakis, “surveys already done that have measured the amount of natural gas estimate it to reach some nine trillion dollars.” Even if only a fraction of that is available, it would has transformed the finances of Greece and the entire region. It would have made the whole region independent of the interest bearing loan sharks from the World Bank and the IMF.

Tulane University oil expert David Hynes told an audience in Athens recently that Greece could have solved its entire public debt crisis through development of its new-found gas and oil. He conservatively estimates that exploitation of the reserves already discovered could bring the country more than €302 billion over 25 years. The Greek government instead has just been forced to agree to huge government layoffs, wage cuts and pension cuts to get access to a second EU and IMF interest bearing enslavement loan.

Greece oil potential far exceeds Canada’s undersea oil potential. Three undersea oil reservoirs: Hibernia (with estimated recoverable reserves of about 1.3 billion barrels of oil), Terra Nova (400 million barrels), and White Rose (440 million barrels). The combined oil reserves of the 3 wells pales in comparison to the 22 billion barrels in the Ionian Sea off western Greece and the 4 billion barrels in the northern Aegean Sea.

For a decade now more than 2 million US soldiers have been sent thousands of miles to a foreign country to fight and even give their life (6,514) to protect and restore foreigners’ rights and freedoms when their own rights and freedoms are being quietly stripped away at home, on US soil, by their president and his government.

Iraqi Resistance fighters the US government called terrorist

Americans were told they would be fighting a war against terrorists and terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan. 2 million were ordered to take up arms and forced to deploy and fight what they were told was the enemy of peace and freedom.

In Afghanistan and Iraq the US government told them that anyone carrying a weapon, that weren’t Americans, were terrorists and they could shot and kill any and all of them. Millions of alleged terrorists and civilians were savagely killed by those 2 million Americans and entire civilian cities, towns and village were destroyed in Operation Enduring freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. Today, both Afghanistan and Iraq are not free as the US military is still committed to wiping out the Taliban (genocide is defined by the International Criminal Court as “the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group“) and killing thousands of civilians in Afghanistan in the process and has and insists on having two combat bases and roughly 4,000 troops remain permanently in Iraq. The sectarian violence (terrorism) was fostered by the US in Iraq, not fought.

Foreign Libyan terrorists the US government funded and called freedom fighters

Foreign Libyan terrorists the US government funded and called freedom fighters

Today, the US government is no longer in the business of fighting terrorists and terrorism, they are in the business of supporting terrorists and terrorism – first in Libya and now in Syria. The very same terrorists who took 6,514 American lives in Afghanistan and Iraq are now being recruited by and paid by the US government to commit acts of terrorism, crimes against peace, crimes against humanity, mass murder, atrocities and war crimes against the civilian populations of Libya and Syria. The US isn’t fighting terrorism it is supporting terrorism. The US isn’t fighting a War Against Terror it is waging Wars of Terror.

US Code
Title 18 › Part I › Chapter 113B › § 2331

(1) the term “international terrorism” means activities that—
(A) involve violent acts or acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State, or that would be a criminal violation if committed within the jurisdiction of the United States orof any State;
(B) appear to be intended—
(i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;
(ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or
(iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and
(C) occur primarily outside the territorial jurisdiction of the United States, or transcend national boundaries in terms of the means by which they are accomplished, the persons they appear intended to intimidate or coerce, or the locale in which their perpetrators operate or seek asylum;

That is exactly what happened in Libya and is now happening in Syria. Foreign terrorists have infiltrated Syria and are engaging in activities that involve violent acts or acts dangerous to human life with the intent to intimidate or coerce the Syrian civilian population, to influence the policy of the Syrian government by intimidation or coercion and to affect the conduct of the Syrian government by mass destruction, assassination or kidnapping.

The Serious Insanity of the US Senate, With Republican Liars Pushing Poison As A Cure

[Professional Neocon Liars like McCain, Levin, Bush and Cheney like to strut about in the clothes of "senior statesmen," while they preen each other in bizarre homosexual rituals, pretending that they can see into the future.  Their favorite tactic is to warn us of the dangers that will arise from "inaction."  If we fail to jump out of our skins every time some creep like McCain or Levin struggles to frighten us into running, then, God forbid, the war might actually end.  Every single neocon has been dedicated to causing thermonuclear war in the Middle East since chief neocon creeps like Richard Perle and Douglas Feith wrote the "clean break" script for Netanyahu.  This has always been the neoconservative intention, to use American power to make the Middle East safe for Israeli expansion.  American traitors like McCain and Levin have deceived the American people into opening the gates of hell at the direction of Benjamin Netanyahu and that little piece of shit which he runs from the middle of the Middle Eastern "shit-storm."  

shitstorm

Now these same lying Senators, who were key players in getting the world into this mess, are warning us of the dangers of trying to close their doorway into the abyss.  They mean to so destabilize the Middle East that the situation can only be brought under control, or pacified, through the "limited use" of nuclear weapons.  McCain and Levin are both lying their lawyerly asses off, so that the Zionist state can use their "ambiguous" nuclear weapons on their unambiguous neighbors.

In the same manner as the American traitors, the Saudis and the other terrified Arab dictators are making the destruction of millions of their own Arab citizens possible by the anti-Semitic Israelis, out of fear for their own thick, callous hides.  The Jews are driving the Muslim leaders mad by playing upon their greatest fear, the fear of irrelevancy or being relegated to the dustbin of obscurity.  Fear that the Shiites of Iran will dominate their Sunni brethren, if left to the course that history has planned for them, drives the various Middle Eastern "royals" to do the unthinkable---make Jewish dominance inevitable, as a fate preferrable to being dominated by Shiites.  Every Sunni believer in the will of Allah must be made aware of the treachery that their leaders have planned for them, before they are forced into exchanging their Qurans for Torahs.]

The Serious Flaws in the Argument for Syrian Intervention

the American Conservative

Sens. Carl Levin and Angus King make their pitch for intervention in Syria, and they issue the usual warnings of what “inaction” will mean:

Assad’s survival, with support from Iran and Hezbollah, would surely strengthen them, to our great detriment [bold mine-DL]. If Assad breaches the international consensus against the use of chemical weapons without repercussions, the United States — and every other nation — will be less secure.

These are common claims in pro-intervention arguments, but it can’t be emphasized enough that neither of them makes any sense. Assad’s survival won’t mean that Iran and Hizbullah have been strengthened, but only that they have not suffered an even larger reversal. If Assad survives, he will be in a much weaker position than he was two years ago, and his allies will be worse off than they once were. I don’t share the hawkish obsession with limiting Iranian influence, but it’s hard to see how this is to our detriment, much less “our great detriment.” If the positions were reversed, no one would claim that the U.S. had been strengthened by propping up a client government in the face of a major rebellion. The fact that the client ruler had merely survived the rebellion wouldn’t be taken as proof that the U.S. position was improving. This would be seen as an ongoing drain of American resources, and the client relationship itself would probably start to be perceived as being more trouble than it was worth.

Any use of chemical weapons is atrocious, but it’s far from clear that the U.S. and other states have been made less secure by the reported use of these weapons by regime forces in Syria. What would make many other nations less secure is the regime’s loss of control of its chemical arsenal, and that becomes more likely if the U.S. follows Levin and King’s recommendations and provides weapons to the rebels and starts bombing Syria. If the concern is to reduce the chances that terrorist organizations acquire chemical weapons, Levin and King’s proposed policy would do just the opposite. Since they specifically rule out ground forces in Syria under any circumstances, they aren’t proposing that the U.S. secure these weapons. The claim that their proposal has something to do with securing the U.S. and other countries against chemical weapons use falls apart under the least scrutiny.

The stability argument may be the least persuasive part of the pro-intervention case. Direct U.S. military action in a foreign conflict typically has destabilizing effects on the country in question and on its neighbors. Bombing targets in Syria will add to the civilian death toll, and it will cause people to flee from those areas that are coming under attack, which would further add to the numbers of the internally displaced and refugees. This would not lessen regional instability caused by the conflict, but would in all likelihood exacerbate it. If the U.S. is concerned most of all with the stability of Syria’s neighbors, it would be a terrible mistake to do what Levin and King recommend.

When Everything Becomes Terrorism, Cap Pistols Become WMDs

Mission Creep: When Everything Is Terrorism

The Atlantic

NSA apologists say spying is only used for menaces like “weapons of mass destruction” and “terror.” But those terms have been radically redefined.

 

grenade.banner.shutterstock.jpg.jpgFer Gregory/ShutterstockOne of the assurances I keep hearing about the U.S. government’s spying on American citizens is that it’s only used in cases of terrorism. Terrorism is, of course, an extraordinary crime, and its horrific nature is supposed to justify permitting all sorts of excesses to prevent it. But there’s a problem with this line of reasoning: mission creep. The definitions of “terrorism” and “weapon of mass destruction” are broadening, and these extraordinary powers are being used, and will continue to be used, for crimes other than terrorism.

Back in 2002, the Patriot Act greatly broadened the definition of terrorism to include all sorts of “normal” violent acts as well as non-violent protests. The term “terrorist” is surprisingly broad; since the terrorist attacks of 9/11, it has been applied to people you wouldn’t normally consider terrorists.

The most egregious example of this are the three anti-nuclear pacifists, including an 82-year-old nun, who cut through a chain-link fence at the Oak Ridge nuclear-weapons-production facility in 2012. While they were originally arrested on a misdemeanor trespassing charge, the government kept increasing their charges as the facility’s security lapses became more embarrassing. Now the protestors have been convicted of violent crimes of terrorism — and remain in jail.

Meanwhile, a Tennessee government official claimed that complaining about water quality could be considered an act of terrorism. To the government’s credit, he was subsequently demoted for those remarks.

The notion of making a terrorist threat is older than the current spate of anti-terrorism craziness. It basically means threatening people in order to terrorize them, and can include things like pointing a fake gun at someone, threatening to set off a bomb, and so on. A Texas high-school student recently spent five months in jail for writing the following on Facebook: “I think I’ma shoot up a kindergarten. And watch the blood of the innocent rain down. And eat the beating heart of one of them.” Last year, two Irish tourists were denied entry at the Los Angeles Airport because of some misunderstood tweets.

Another term that’s expanded in meaning is “weapon of mass destruction.” The law is surprisingly broad, and includes anything that explodes, leading political scientist and terrorism-fear skeptic John Mueller to comment:

As I understand it, not only is a grenade a weapon of mass destruction, but so is a maliciously-designed child’s rocket even if it doesn’t have a warhead. On the other hand, although a missile-propelled firecracker would be considered a weapon of mass destruction if its designers had wanted to think of it as a weapon, it would not be so considered if it had previously been designed for use as a weapon and then redesigned for pyrotechnic use or if it was surplus and had been sold, loaned, or given to you (under certain circumstances) by the secretary of the army ….

All artillery, and virtually every muzzle-loading military long arm for that matter, legally qualifies as a WMD. It does make the bombardment of Ft. Sumter all the more sinister. To say nothing of the revelation that The Star Spangled Banner is in fact an account of a WMD attack on American shores.

After the Boston Marathon bombings, one commentator described our use of the term this way: “What the United States means by terrorist violence is, in large part, ‘public violence some weirdo had the gall to carry out using a weapon other than a gun.’ … Mass murderers who strike with guns (and who don’t happen to be Muslim) are typically read as psychopaths disconnected from the larger political sphere.” Sadly, there’s a lot of truth to that.

Even as the definition of terrorism broadens, we have to ask how far we will extend that arbitrary line. Already, we’re using these surveillance systems in other areas. A raft of secret court rulings has recently expanded the NSA’s eavesdropping powers to include “people possibly involved in nuclear proliferation, espionage and cyberattacks.” A “little-noticed provision” in a 2008 law expanded the definition of “foreign intelligence” to include “weapons of mass destruction,” which, as we’ve just seen, is surprisingly broad.

A recent Atlantic essay asks, somewhat facetiously, “If PRISM is so good, why stop with terrorism?” The author’s point was to discuss the value of the Fourth Amendment, even if it makes the police less efficient. But it’s actually a very good question. Once the NSA’s ubiquitous surveillance of all Americans is complete — once it has the ability to collect and process all of our emails, phone calls, text messages, Facebook posts, location data, physical mail, financial transactions, and who knows what else — why limit its use to cases of terrorism? I can easily imagine a public groundswell of support to use to help solve some other heinous crime, like a kidnapping. Or maybe a child-pornography case. From there, it’s an easy step to enlist NSA surveillance in the continuing war on drugs; that’s certainly important enough to warrant regular access to the NSA’s databases. Or maybe to identify illegal immigrants. After all, we’ve already invested in this system, we might as well get as much out of it as we possibly can. Then it’s a short jump to the trivial examples suggested in the Atlantic essay: speeding and illegal downloading. This “slippery slope” argument is largely speculative, but we’ve already started down that incline.

Criminal defendants are starting to demand access to the NSA data that they believe will exonerate themselves. How can a moral government refuse this request?

More humorously, the NSA might have created the best backup system ever.

Technology changes slowly, but political intentions can change very quickly. In 2000, I wrote in my book Secrets and Lies about police surveillance technologies: “Once the technology is in place, there will always be the temptation to use it. And it is poor civic hygiene to install technologies that could someday facilitate a police state.” Today we’re installing technologies of ubiquitous surveillance, and the temptation to use them will be overwhelming.

Pakistan party MQM: Police investigate claims it incited violence from London

11 July 2013

Police in London are investigating one of Pakistan’s biggest political parties, the Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) for possible money-laundering. The BBC understands that in raids on MQM-owned properties in London, police found hundreds of thousands of dollars of unaccounted-for cash.

The party’s leader is Altaf Hussain, who lives in London in self-imposed exile. Officers are also investigating complaints alleging that Mr Hussain used his base in the UK to incite violence in Pakistan.

The party denies the allegations that murders in Pakistan were ordered from London and says it is the victim of “malicious” propaganda. It declined to comment about the money-laundering investigation while police inquiries continue and stressed no arrests have been made.

“Taliban” Pakistan’s Deniable Paramilitary Force Wages Terror War To Assert Army Control

TO borrow an idea from sociologist Victor Burner, terrorism in Pakistan has become a social drama. Almost every passing day offers something new, dramatic and unusual.

Terrorists provide the lead by carrying out planned attacks in different parts of the country. Next follow the rituals and rhetoric. The authorities’ security briefs, political condemnations and citizens’ vigils are scenes from the same drama, which inadvertently keep terrorism intact.

The handling of militancy in this way by officialdom has added to the spectacle of violence, with the public imagination imbued with the thought of ‘more to come’.

This is enough for terrorism to become internalised, and therefore it is accepted as normal. This helps us understand why the KP information minister in his reaction to a bomb blast in Mardan that killed a number of people, including a parliamentarian, is reported to have said: “It’s not doomsday.”

Even though he retracted his statement, his denial does not make the issue less important.

Unfortunately, fear has pushed the entire civilian infrastructure into a state of confusion. If the opposition in KP blames the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf government for its lack of courage to pass an Assembly resolution against the killing of 10 foreign tourists, the statements of politicians at the centre see a conspiracy behind the attack.

There is political caution in not linking this drama to the logical perpetrators — the Taliban. The political and military solution lies in perpetuating the ritual, instead of ending it.

Some aspects of our national character are also at work here. Decades of exploitation have cultivated in us the seeds of self-denigration and self-pity. The standard comment on a road that is bumpy, a bureaucrat who is exploitative and load-shedding realities is ‘this is our country’.

Yet, there is the example of the Taliban in the same country whose performance is impeccable. In fact, it is hard to believe that somebody from this land can work so diligently to destabilise the country.

Let’s not get distracted. My focus is not on the argument that rhetoric (statements) and rituals (Assembly resolutions) can dent the militants’ strength. I want to elaborate on the absence of political resolve, which has left people complacent with the situation.

We should not ignore the fact that without political resolve, the official response through rhetoric and rituals can only lead to acceptance of terrorism. It is happening right now, where people feel the effects and see scenes of acts of terrorism, but they can’t find the way out.

Official confusion and lack of resolve is clearly translated in the public vision to understand the drama. So far people largely believe in what they are told by media, politicians and state officials.

They need to break away from this pre-determined path by avoiding an approach that understands terror only in a black and white form. They have to challenge the state apparatus for its role in not curbing terrorism, the way they need to hold accountable all those supportive of militancy.

Through provocative statements, the forces of status quo still interpret their jihadi vision while sitting in public ranks. They test the water from time to time by reinforcing their identity, ideas and ideology to ensure that they still are the guardians of the ruling militant discourse.

After a wave of violence in Quetta in which militants set alight the Quaid’s residence and killed several university students, the Jamaatud Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed reiterated his jihadi commitment.

While appealing to militant organisations to stop attacks inside Pakistan, he reiterated that ‘jihad’ would continue outside Pakistan. In plain words, he gave with one hand what he took away with the other.

Even in the midst of insane violence, provocative jihadi statements reflect that the archaic notion is still intact, which in the past had menaced the very continuity of the sway of the security institutions and their proxies.

Why then should we lament if one section of the proxies defies the strategic expectations of their mentors and falls back on us? The outcome is already reflected in whatever is happening all around.

Ten years of fighting against militancy should have helped us learn that terrorism is not going to end unless the state initiates steps to neutralise radical leaders. By serving as vital cogs in a predatory militant wheel, these leaders provide the youth with a reason to join militancy.

It does not need extra intelligence to understand that the jihadi enterprise of ‘bad’ Taliban is the reactionary outcome of the social process, which was adopted in the past to create the ‘good’ Taliban. The country has already paid a heavy price for this militant project, which was patronised by the state, exploited by politicians and recognised by society.

We have to understand that any discourse has other than purely intended consequences. Therefore, encouraging ‘jihad’ against others is not free from repercussions.

According to sociologist Wagner Pacific, “words build bridges to actions, and some people will choose to walk over those bridges”. We, therefore, cannot stop the ‘bad’ Taliban from using the same militant discourse to fight against us.

After all, militants of all stripes abhor democracy the way they detest peace and radically translate progress. With so much in common, what differentiation can we draw between the good or bad Taliban and ‘jihad’ here or there?

Pakistan already has reached a stage where its people cannot afford to let confusion rule their collective imagination. Change in the earlier jihadi worldview is vital for snatching the initiative from the forces of status quo, which set the agenda for the militant discourse.

In a situation which has become a matter of grave concern for peace-loving people all around the world, allowing the radical mindset to provide us with ideological and material initiatives means we all share a role in fomenting militancy.

Venezuela and Nicaragua make Snowden asylum offers

Venezuela and Nicaragua make Snowden asylum offers

BBC

The presidents of Venezuela and Nicaragua explain their offers

The presidents of both Nicaragua and Venezuela have indicated their countries could offer political asylum to US fugitive Edward Snowden.

Venezuela’s Nicolas Maduro said it would give asylum to the intelligence leaker, who is believed to be holed up in a transit area of Moscow airport.

Meanwhile Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega said his country would do so “if circumstances permit”.

Wikileaks said Mr Snowden had applied to six additional countries on Friday.

The whistleblowing website said it would not name the countries “due to attempted US interference”.

Mr Snowden has already asked 21 countries for asylum, most of whom have turned down his request.

But even if a country accepted the American’s application, getting there could prove difficult, the BBC’s Steven Rosenberg, in Moscow, reports.

European airspace could be closed to any aircraft suspected of carrying the fugitive, our correspondent says.

Earlier this week, several European countries reportedly refused to allow the Bolivian president’s jet to cross their airspace on its way back from Moscow – apparently because of suspicions that Edward Snowden was on board.

Speculation

President Maduro made his announcement in a speech on Venezuela’s Independence Day.

“As head of state and government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela I have decided to offer humanitarian asylum to the young US citizen Edward Snowden so he can come to the fatherland of Bolivar and Chavez to live away from the imperial North American persecution,” President Maduro said.

The US wants to prosecute Mr Snowden over the leaking of thousands of classified intelligence documents.

Earlier Mr Ortega said Nicaragua had received an application at its embassy in Moscow.

“We are open, respectful of the right to asylum, and it is clear that if circumstances permit it, we would receive Snowden with pleasure and give him asylum here in Nicaragua,” Agence France-Presse quoted the Nicaraguan president as saying.

Daniel Ortega, file photo  14 June 2013 President Ortega said the asylum application was received in Moscow

Daniel Ortega was a fierce opponent of the US during his first period as Nicaragua’s president in the 1980s, after the left-wing Sandinista movement came to power.

Bolivia, which had also suggested it might offer Mr Snowden asylum, saw its presidential plane barred from European airspace on Tuesday.

There was speculation the 30-year-old was on the plane carrying President Evo Morales back from Russia to La Paz earlier this week.

“Edward Snowden has applied to another six countries for asylum,” tweeted Wikileaks, which has been helping the former CIA contractor.

“They will not be named at this time due to attempted US interference.”

The US has been blamed for being behind the decision by France, Portugal, Italy and Spain to close its airspace to Bolivia’s president, whose plane was grounded in Austria for 13 hours as a result.

Earlier on Friday, Spain’s foreign minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo admitted he and the other European countries had been told that Mr Snowden was on board – but refused to say who gave out the information.

He denied Spain had closed its airspace to the presidential plane, explaining that the delay in Austria meant the flight permit had expired and needed to be renewed.

His comment is the first official recognition by the European states that the incident with Mr Morales’ plane was connected with the Snowden affair.

It has been widely condemned by President Morales and several other South American nations, who were critical of the US.

Mr Snowden arrived in the Moscow airport from Hong Kong last month.

He revealed himself to be responsible for the leaking of classified US intelligence documents that revealed a vast surveillance programme of phone and web data.

The documents have also led to allegations that both the UK and French intelligence agencies run similarly vast data collection operations, and the US has been eavesdropping on official EU communications.

The Window to Resist Global Tyranny Is Closing

The Window to Resist Global Tyranny Is Closing

 Dave Hodges – The Common Sense Show

In Parts one and two, a strong case was made by past revolutionaries that winning the hearts and minds of the people is a necessary precondition before executing quasi-military activities, in an asymmetrical fashion (i.e. guerrilla war).  Further, it was also revealed that although 90% of the country does not approve of the job that its government is doing, about the same percentage are unaware as to the identity of their true enemy and the totality of the globalist agenda.

In Phase one of the battle for the hearts and minds of the people, involves the awakening of the public and this task is totally left up to the alternative media and its supporters. Assuming that phase one is successful, Phase two can commence.

Veteran Brandon Raub arrested for questioning the official version of 9/11 on Facebook.

Veteran Brandon Raub arrested for questioning the official version of 9/11 on Facebook.

A Phase two rebellion will undoubtedly be led by a good portion of the 21.5 million American veterans because they have the know how on what it takes launch a guerrilla war against their oppressors. Subsequently, it should be clear to everyone why this government is targeting the veterans and declaring so many of them to mentally incompetent and using that as the justification to seize their guns and medicate them against their will such as in the case of Brandon Raub. The veterans are the vanguard of the resistance and the administration is attempting to negate much of their influence.

If the veterans were to be the leaders of the coming resistance, who would be their top supporters? It would be the groups and individuals who seek the restoration of American civil liberties. The mostly likely groups would be those people who already demonstrate a fundamental respect for the Constitution and free will in general. These groups would be Christians, Libertarians, Constitutionalists, former Ron Paul supporters, Tea Party members, and Second Amendment supporters. Interestingly, these groups have already been labeled as domestic terrorists in the MIAC Report authored by DHS.

DHS Is Ready for War, Are You?

DHS and the rest of the government understands what is coming. They have been preparing for a long time.  And just what would the DHS be preparing for?  Under the present set of circumstances, Americans, armed with 300 million guns would be a formidable opponent for the globalist occupation forces. So long as America would have the resolve to fight for 7-10 years, there would be a fair chance that the American people would prevail. If only 10% of the veterans participated in the resistance, that is an army bigger than the one the United States presently fields. Add the populations identified in the MIAC Report and this country would literally make it  impossible for DHS and FEMA to control. We would see Irish Republican Army types of IED’s on Wall Street, guerrilla forces attacking trains, oil fields, any symbol of the globalist takeover and would certainly see targeted assassinations of Wall Street bankers. Now you know why, as Jim Maars reported on The Common Sense Show, that so many of the bankers have the left the country.  To recap, Americans certainly have the means and numbers to mount a resistance capable of resisting government tyranny with a good likelihood of winning a war of attrition with the globalist occupiers. However, the globalist forces are capable of mounting very stiff opposition to any rebellion. In fact, it can be argued that at his point in time, the globalists are better prepared than the American people for an upcoming conflict.

Sizing Up the DHS Stasi Forces

DHS has ordered 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition in recent months to go with 2700 armored personnel carriers. Through federalization, DHS controls the local police forces and their allies from NATO (a Bilderberg creation) control a good portion of the military leadership in this country. In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing, DHS has demonstrated that they have the means to shut down a large American city without sufficient justification or legitimate legal authority.

DHS has made it clear as to who their enemy is. They recently accepted cutouts of American citizens to be used for shooting targets in order to desensitize the killing of American citizens who might not give up their guns. These targets included a pregnant woman, an older person and even a child.

dhs targets

Recently, Obama and DHS took their treason against the American people to a whole new level and it increasingly clear that DHS is indeed preparing for the coming guerrilla war, even if the majority of Americans are not even aware that this conflict has already commenced.

Stunningly, it is now revealed that Obama has signed an agreement with Putin which allows the use of Russian soldiers on American soil to engage in public venue policing activities..

Let’s ignore for the time being, that Obama just committed an act of treason which should imprison for the rest of his life.  This act by Obama is a declaration of war by this administration upon the American people. However, it is also a sign that this administration is desperate and they know they do not have the means, at the present time, to prevent the “Red Dawn scenario” from coming to fruition. Generally, it takes 1 soldier for every 50 citizens in order to garrison a population. Even with the support of the Russians, it is not likely that they can marshal the necessary number of forces to completely control this country.

russia attacks america 3These modern day Hessian soldiers better watch out because their heads will be a high priority target for guerrilla forces. Of course, the administration will attempt to reduce the odds through incarceration and extermination. It is interesting to note that mainstream broadcaster, Michael Savage acknowledged that this administration plans to use FEMA camps to reduce the threat ratio to this regime. My, how the worm is turning, perhaps we are winning the battle for America’s hearts and minds discussed in Part one.

Phase Three of the Revolution

As Giap, Lawrence and Mao all state that when Phase two is successful, Phase three would be ready to commence. As in Romania, Cuba, China and South Vietnam, we could expect to members of the military to join the resistance when the rebels demonstrate that they have a chance to be successful. At this point, the revolution would turn conventional and territorial occupation becomes a goal. Stage three is the culminating stage of a successful revolution.

The Evil Empire Strikes Back

If America can overcome it soft ways and entitlement attitudes, this country has the resources, leadership and experience needed to carry out a successful guerrilla campaign against the globalist occupiers. However, America’s window of opportunity needed to reclaim their country, is limited because of the emergence of exotic new military technology designed to completely thwart all insurgent actions.

Advanced Anti-Guerrilla Warfare Tactics of the Globalists

The rules of Guerrilla warfare are about to change. Although many of the weapons described below are not yet deployed, it is merely a matter of time. Afghanistan is proving to be the beta testing ground for many of these weapons as is Iraq.  The following technological breakthroughs in military technology have very little value on the battlefield in a conventional war. These weapons systems are anti-guerrilla orientated and they are designed for Americans who will soon try to put a stop to the unfolding tyranny of the bankers who have hijacked our government. We are entering into a new type of guerrilla warfare with extreme counter-measures designed and created by DARPA which is the top secret research arm for the Department of Defense.

DARPA’s sole purpose is built around the goal of developing more efficient and greater means of killing. For those of you who have not figured out that we are about to enter American hunting season and you are the game, you should know that if these weapons systems are every deployed in sufficient numbers, the game is over.

 Every Move You Make, We’ll Be Stalking You

LACOSTE the "All seeing eye"

LACOSTE the “All seeing eye”

In a nowhere to run and nowhere to hide scenario, DARPA, has developed technology which allows the military to spy on entire cities with its Large Area Coverage Optical Search-while-Track and Engage (LACOSTE). LACOSTE is a program of imaging technology that will allow for “single sensor , day or night, ongoing tactical surveillance of all moving vehicles in an urban area. LACOSTE will eventually be able to identify individual humans in the same manner with the next generation of facial recognition software. This surveillance system is being integrated into department store video surveillance, the street light turned spy Intellistreets as well as all traffic cameras. If the globalists want to find you, you better have a “cloaking” device to hide behind. More importantly, most guerrilla activities are designed to occur under the cover of darkness. The cover of darkness is no longer an ally for future American rebels.

Meet the New Boss

Meet the new Boss, The Battlefield Surveillance System

Meet the new Boss, The Battlefield Surveillance System

Many gun owners mistakenly believe that they are going to be able to carry out acts of guerrilla warfare and/or terrorism against an illegitimate government as they begin to lock-down the country under a martial law takeover. Thwarting most ideas of a successful revolutionary effort can be found in the Battlefield Optical Surveillance System (BOSS),which is a device that can be mounted on a truck that scans and deciphers the landscape with lasers and sensors. When it sees the almost imperceptible glint of a rifle scope, or more amazingly it also recognizes you through your retinas as the detection device “paints” you with a laser beam, just prior to your demise.

Boomerang

Boomerang

Boomerang

And even in the unlikely event that you can slip into firing range of your intended target, the Boomerang countermeasure system uses an array of microphones which will be able to instantly decipher the speed and direction of your shot, based on the muzzle report and the shock wave of the bullet as it zips past. Immediately, Boomerang knows where the shot came from, and even what kind of weapon was utilized. This system will reduce all future sniper missions to a Kamikaze endeavor. Therefore, it is a safe bet that prior to moving globalist controlled forces into an area to conduct a roundup, BOSS and Boomerang will be employed to detect and possible resistance and eliminate the resistance by calling in a drone strike.

Nowhere to Run, Nowhere to Hide

X-25 "Smart" grenade launcher

X-25 “Smart” grenade launcher

If a drone is unavailable the XM-25 is a “smart” grenade launcher. The weapon is portable and can be carried to the battlefield by a soldier, or even better, a DARPA killer robot who has orders to search and destroy a specific target which will be identified by facial recognition. Once you are located, the X-25 possess a laser range-finder built in to the weapon that can detect the distance to the wall or trench that you’re hiding behind and then blow you and your cover to oblivion.

The “Can’t Miss” Weapon

EXACTO gives new meaning to the phrase "one shot, one kill."

EXACTO gives new meaning to the phrase “one shot, one kill.”

On your last trip to your local gun range, how close to 100% was your accuracy? You might want to consider that the other side has a sniper countermeasure called EXACTO, or the Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance. EXACTO is the first ever guided small caliber (“smart”) bullet. If you’ve ever watched a heat-seeking missile follow a fighter jet on the big screen, then you would comprehend the idea of DARPA’s intention for creating a maneuverable and flexible bullet, which is controlled by a guidance system, that moves with the target and adjusts in mid-flight and to eventually shatters a human skull.

Raise the Shields Scotty, Micro Air Vehicles and Killer Robots

Maybe someone in your neighborhood struck a deal with al Qaeda and obtained a couple of RPG’s that the late Ambassador from Libya sold to the terrorists before he was murdered by the administration to make the trail go cold. You might feel that you had a chance against the armored personnel carriers which will be used by DHS. Or, maybe you could shoot down a Predator B drone prior to it launching 100,000 micro drones designed to attack troops at your position. Unfortunately for your forces, the other side possesses the Gizmodo Iron Curtain (GIC) countermeasure can protect a moving vehicle from an incoming RPG, by detecting the projectile and then detonating it. The next generation of GIC’s will be able to do the same with bullets.  

It does not take a rocket scientist to project the next development using this technology. which would be employed to protect drones and other planes. When the globalist forces advance upon rebel positions, they will be nearly impervious to harm and free to carry out their mission. Do you remember the 2700 armored personnel carriers obtained by DHS? In the not too distant future, we will witness the fact that these vehicles will be virtually indestructible.

Conclusion

America does have the capacity to resist tyranny with some degree of success as our people have more resources than any other guerrilla force in world history. America has successful military experience in its ranks in sufficient numbers to make a lot of difference. However, the key to saving America is twofold: (1) America would have to abandon its “soft” mentality; and, (2) the 10% that are awake would have arouse the majority in the time we have left. The guerrilla suppressing technology is so thorough and so completely devastating, that if the globalists are allowed to being this technology to fruition in sufficient numbers, the game is over and the fate of humanity is sealed. For America falls to the globalists, then humanity will follow. Do I think that these two challenges can mitigated? Yes, I do. Do I think we in the alternative media will arouse a sufficient number of people to make a difference? The odds are far less than 50%.  If you share the same world-view as I do that the alternative media may not be successful in arousing America before it is too late, then you need to ask yourself what are you doing to prepare to survive in the NWO?

Does MI-5 Have Our Friend, Mostaque Ali?–( MIA since 5-31 Article On Brit Spies)

MI-5 Islamofascist agent whisked to a safe house by Criminal UK State….to allegedly protect him from a MI-5 psy-ops.(race baiting)

 

 

mostaque ali

MI-5 runs the Israeli loving EDL.

MI-5 also runs nearly ALL the Islamo-fascists in the UK.

What we end up with is a MI-5 run, race baiting Punch and Judy show with consequences.

Five types of Islamo-fascists run by Western Intelligence:

(i) Foreign Islamists with academic backgrounds funded by the Criminal UK State to study in the UK, and develop their radical Islamist literature in the UK, often with Social Security assistance, or work in British education institutions, after they finish their studies. Their sword of Islam is their writing.

(ii) Foreign Jihadi military trained fighters who use the UK as a refuge under the aegis of MI-5, most often funded by the Social Security Service or small low pay work. Often hired out for ops in the Middle East and Africa, illegally by the Criminal UK State, as and when the whim and spotlight takes them (Syria, Somalia).

(iii) Domestic often educated second, or third generation immigrants who are recruited by MI-5 at places such as SOAS, LSE to fight for Islam in the Greater Middle East and Africa as Islamists or activists. The Criminal UK State helps them with Social Security help, networking in their community, and career development in the UK, organizational development. ANJEM CHOUDHURI.

(iv) Criminal ethnics in jail for various crimes. MI-5 recruits them whilst in jail, with preconditions….method more favored by the CIA, then MI-5. These criminals then suddenly grow a beard, and become ‘pious’ Muslims……..sent on terrorist missions in the UK or abroad.

(v) Christians and Jews pretending to be Islamists working often for two governments example Israel/UK…..who carry out terrorism for MI-5, in the UK or abroad.

The elite Jews run MI-5. The current head of MI-5 may be a covert Jew….his eyes are quite close together and he seems to have a hook nose.

The International Jews are implementing Neo-liberal, Monetarist, Reaganomic policies in the UK steadily since 1979. These policies are obviously unpopular…….they make the rich richer (a high percentage of whom happen to be JEWS) and the poor poorer. A feudal society…..a regression of society to the Medieval era, or even beyond.

Neo-liberal policies are also disastrously unsuccessful in the few countries where they were introduced in their PUREST form….Argentina, Chile and Russia.

The USA is the richest country in the world presently, purportedly; NOT because of neo-liberal policies applied since 1783, BUT A COMBINATION of economic policies which were subsequently adjusted, and varyingly contrasted depending on the politics of the time…….FDR’s New Deal etc.

SO how do you implement bad economic policies and brazen Criminality by the City banks, with austerity, which harms 95% of the population?

YOU put on a DISTRACTING CIRCUS…..of Islamists terrorism, pedophilia revelation of a few elderly has been stars (I’m making an observation of this as a vehicle for a specific agenda, and not a criticism of the lawful process against it), David and Victora Beckham and so forth….’Soccer is my only reason for existence’…’I love Coronation Street’.

Smart nations such as China, Taiwan, Australia? Who enjoy good economic performance, and small Jewish populations understand that Neo-liberalism as an economic theory is impractical. They have seen what it has done to certain countries.

Pa. mom settles suit over poppy seed drug test

Associated Press

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A woman who had her newborn taken away because she failed a hospital drug test after she ate a poppy seed bagel has settled a lawsuit over the case.

Lawrence County’s child welfare agency and Jameson Hospital have paid $143,500 to settle the suit filed on behalf of Elizabeth Mort by the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania, which announced the settlement Tuesday.

Mort sued in October 2010, alleging that a poppy seed bagel she ate shortly before arriving at the hospital spurred a positive test for opiates in April 2010 that prompted the seizure of her 3-day-old daughter, Isabella Rodriguez.

Mort said she was home with her baby when a county child welfare caseworker arrived with an emergency protective custody order and took Isabella.

The lawsuit alleged Mort was never told in the hospital that she had failed a drug test, nor was she asked if she had eaten anything that could have affected the test results.

The infant was returned five days later, after local officials agreed there was no evidence the mother had used illegal drugs.

The suit argued that Jameson Hospital used a much lower threshold for drug screening than federal guidelines, resulting in more false positives from common foods and medicines. The federal standard is 2,000 nanograms per milliliter, but Jameson Hospital used a reading of 300 nanograms, according to the lawsuit.

ACLU officials said Tuesday the hospital and county have implemented policy changes so newborns aren’t taken from parents based only on maternal drug tests, which can be inaccurate.

“We hope that this case will encourage hospitals that routinely test pregnant women for drug use to reconsider that practice due to the harm that can result from false positives,” said Pennsylvania ACLU staff attorney Sara Rose.

Students from 17 countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) as well as the Palestinian territories arrived in Washington D.C. on June 24 to participate in the U.S. Department of State’s Middle East Partnership Initiative’s (MEPI) 10th Student Leaders Exchange Program. These 119 civic-minded undergraduate students will participate in an intensive, six-week exchange program to enhance their leadership skills, expand their understanding of American civil society and democratic processes, and explore ways to enhance democratic participation in their home countries.

All students will attend an orientation session in Washington, D.C. before traveling to one of six host universities: Benedictine University (Illinois), the University of Delaware, Georgetown University (Washington, D.C.), Montana State University, Portland State University (Oregon), and Roger Williams University (Rhode Island). They will return to Washington, D.C. on August 2nd for closing sessions.

Since 2004, nearly 1,220 undergraduate students from throughout the MENA region have participated in the MEPI’s Student Leaders Exchange Program. Many have gone on to support their communities through volunteerism and civic activism.

“Just 0.2 percent of the Internet” Is Searchable

 

NSA

The debate over the U.S. government’s monitoring of digital communications suggests that Americans are willing to allow it as long as it is genuinely targeted at terrorists. What they fail to realize is that the surveillance systems are best suited for gathering information on law-abiding citizens.

People concerned with online privacy tend to calm down when told that the government can record their calls or read their e-mail only under special circumstances and with proper court orders. The assumption is that they have nothing to worry about unless they are terrorists or correspond with the wrong people.

The infrastructure set up by the National Security Agency, however, may only be good for gathering information on the stupidest, lowest-ranking of terrorists. The Prism surveillance program focuses on access to the servers of America’s largest Internet companies, which support such popular services as Skype, Gmail and iCloud. These are not the services that truly dangerous elements typically use.

In a January 2012 report titled “Jihadism on the Web: A Breeding Ground for Jihad in the Modern Age,” the Dutch General Intelligence and Security Service drew a convincing picture of an Islamist Web underground centered around “core forums.” These websites are part of the Deep Web, or Undernet, the multitude of online resources not indexed by commonly used search engines.

No Data

The Netherlands’ security service, which couldn’t find recent data on the size of the Undernet, cited a 2003 study from the University of California at Berkeley as the “latest available scientific assessment.” The study found that just 0.2 percent of the Internet could be searched. The rest remained inscrutable and has probably grown since. In 2010, Google Inc. said it had indexed just 0.004 percent of the information on the Internet.

Websites aimed at attracting traffic do their best to get noticed, paying to tailor their content to the real or perceived requirements of search engines such as Google. Terrorists have no such ambitions. They prefer to lurk in the dark recesses of the Undernet.

“People who radicalise under the influence of jihadist websites often go through a number of stages,” the Dutch report said. “Their virtual activities increasingly shift to the invisible Web, their security awareness increases and their activities become more conspiratorial.”

Radicals who initially stand out on the “surface” Web quickly meet people, online or offline, who drag them deeper into the Web underground. “For many, finally finding the jihadist core forums feels like a warm bath after their virtual wanderings,” the report said.

When information filters to the surface Web from the core forums, it’s often by accident. Organizations such as al-Qaeda use the forums to distribute propaganda videos, which careless participants or their friends might post on social networks or YouTube.

Communication on the core forums is often encrypted. In 2012, a French court found nuclear physicist Adlene Hicheur guilty of, among other things, conspiring to commit an act of terror for distributing and using software called Asrar al-Mujahideen, or Mujahideen Secrets. The program employed various cutting-edge encryption methods, including variable stealth ciphers and RSA 2,048-bit keys.

The NSA’s Prism, according to a classified PowerPoint presentation published by the Guardian, provides access to the systems of Microsoft Corp. (and therefore Skype), Facebook Inc., Google, Apple Inc. and other U.S. Internet giants. Either these companies have provided “master keys” to decrypt their traffic – - which they deny — or the NSA has somehow found other means.

Traditional Means

Even complete access to these servers brings U.S. authorities no closer to the core forums. These must be infiltrated by more traditional intelligence means, such as using agents posing as jihadists or by informants within terrorist organizations.

Similarly, monitoring phone calls is hardly the way to catch terrorists. They’re generally not dumb enough to use Verizon. Granted, Russia’s special services managed to kill Chechen separatist leader Dzhokhar Dudayev with a missile that homed in on his satellite-phone signal. That was in 1996. Modern-day terrorists are generally more aware of the available technology.

At best, the recent revelations concerning Prism and telephone surveillance might deter potential recruits to terrorist causes from using the most visible parts of the Internet. Beyond that, the government’s efforts are much more dangerous to civil liberties than they are to al-Qaeda and other organizations like it.

Graeme Maxton says the fuss made over the revelations of an ex-CIA analyst is distracting us from the task at hand – standing up to amoral tech giants that want to know too much about us

The events surrounding whistle-blower Edward Snowden, the ex-CIA analyst and until a few days ago a Booz Allen Hamilton employee, have an element of tragedy as well as farce.

The tragedy comes from the witch-hunt that is being used to cover up the news that US security agencies have been gathering data about us from the big technology firms for years.

There is scant evidence that this massive effort to spy on us is making us any safer

The farce is that this is not news. The desires of US spooks to know too much about us and the dubious morality of Google, Microsoft, Apple and others were already well documented.

The story actually begins in 2002, when America’s security agencies established the Information Awareness Office. This was created in order to build a massive database about everyone, to store e-mails, financial transactions, medical records and information about our social networks. It was to be used to identify suspicious activity, unhealthy relationships and threats.

The office was shut down after 18 months because of privacy fears. But many of its projects continued to receive funding, the big computer needed to analyse all the data is almost finished and what it set out to do has largely been achieved. America’s National Security Agency’s (NSA) US$2 billion data-storage facility in Utah will open soon and it will have the capacity to store and process yottabytes for decades to come.

Helpfully, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Apple and all the others have collected all the information that the Information Awareness Office originally wanted to fuel this computer, and much more effectively than first envisaged.

Rather than the NSA needing wire-taps and warrants, these companies have persuaded us to give the information the authorities wanted voluntarily. We have told them all about our habits, views and relationships. We have explained to them in great detail what we like and what we fear. And we have even downloaded little apps to show them our location and the identities of those around us, thinking these useful, not troubling.

And we have done this despite knowing that the companies collecting this information are morally suspect. Intel, Google and Microsoft have all been fined for anticompetitive behaviour, while Apple and Skype have been investigated for it.

Google got caught getting around the privacy settings on its own browser and illegally collected internet access points with its Street View car. It then failed to delete the information despite repeated assurances that it would.

The US Federal Trade Commission says Facebook has “repeatedly” failed to honour promises to keep personal information private. Many of Apple’s apps have been found to be harvesting entire address books without our permission. Twitter was also found storing the address lists of its customers on its servers without them knowing and when it got caught, simply amended its privacy policy to make the practice standard.

Google’s search engine tracks your interests and filters future results depending on your previous searches. YouTube, which Google owns, tracks your taste in videos and music. Street View, Google Earth and Google Maps show where you live and where you go. Picasa, Google’s photo-sharing website, uses facial-recognition software to identify you and your friends.

Gmail knows whom you write to and what you say. Google Docs stores your letters. Google Calendar knows your plans. The company’s Android operating system on your phone or tablet knows exactly where you are and where you have been. The company’s privacy policy also allows it to collate all this information.

It seems almost laughable to think that Google was doing this just so that it could sell us more stuff. Now it is clear that there were other, much more sinister, motives lurking somewhere in the background.

Most troubling of all, there is scant evidence that this massive effort to spy on us is making us any safer. The number of deaths caused by terrorist acts in most of the world in the past 12 years is minuscule compared to those caused by heart disease, road accidents and even childbirth.

Instead of being distracted by the hounding of Snowden, we should be asking ourselves why these companies and the American government are invading our privacy like this. And we should first stop helping them do it.
