The influential pro-Israel American Israel Public Affairs Committee will deploy hundreds of activists next week to win support in Congress for military action in Syria, amid an intense White House effort to convince wavering U.S. lawmakers to vote for limited strikes.
“We plan a major lobbying effort with about 250 activists in Washington to meet with their senators and representatives,” an AIPAC source said on Saturday….
The Obama administration secretly won permission from a surveillance court in 2011 to reverse restrictions on the National Security Agency’s use of intercepted phone calls and e-mails, permitting the agency to search deliberately for Americans’ communications in its massive databases, according to interviews with government officials and recently declassified material.
In addition, the court extended the length of time that the NSA is allowed to retain intercepted U.S. communications from five years to six years — and more under special circumstances, according to the documents, which include a recently released 2011 opinion by U.S. District Judge John D. Bates, then chief judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.
What had not been previously acknowledged is that the court in 2008 imposed an explicit ban — at the government’s request — on those kinds of searches, that officials in 2011 got the court to lift the bar and that the search authority has been used….
First off, I don’t know for a fact that all the scenes depicted below are from sandy hook, I’m not familiar with the area, although I’ve seen some of them before. What I do know is how tenuous our grasp of reality really is given the state of the media. I’m also convinced that there’s a concerted effort to demonise the 2nd amendment under false pretexts for some reason. Censorship of the psych drug/massacre connection, ATF refusal to shut down gun dealers who knowingly sell to criminals, the “fast and furious” operation, massacres with disappearing accomplices (batman, sikh temple), and the overall behavior of the fascist-controlled mass media are all telling signs of an orchestrated agenda to confiscate guns. Why? Is it really about stopping violent crime? Evidently not, since guns are more often used to stop violent crime than perpetrate it, and common sense says if you have a no-guns area like a school, it would be a magnet for crazies with guns. School principals used to have access to weapons, and I never heard of any of them going crazy.
We as a society have been privileged to live in domestic peace and security for so long we’ve forgotten what it’s like to live as much of the world’s population does, under constant threat of state or criminal sponsored death. And of the two, state sponsored genocide is by far the biggest cause of death in the last century, most notoriously under the wall-street-funded nazi regime. There are powerful monopolies and families behind the scenes in this country that never answer for their crimes. What’s to stop them if they wanted to massacre americans? Social inertia, that’s all. We haven’t yet lapsed into an open police state, but we’re getting there.
The founders of this country were well acquainted with the deceptive, covert and violent tactics of oligarchies such as we live under today. That’s why they put the 2nd amendment into the foundational document. And let’s face it, economically we’ve already been sold down the river as our jobs have been shipped abroad. Obviously the financial powers that arranged for our impoverishment don’t expect life to go on as usual in the USA, and equally obviously, they have prepared for the consequences of what they have done. Frankly if it reaches a point where there’s armed confrontation we will have already lost the most important battle, the battle for democratic control in washington and an honest media. What follows after that is anyone’s guess, but I suspect guns are going to play some kind of role. Let’s not let things degrade to that point. The “government” still has to maintain the appearance of acting in the national interest. This is their biggest vulnerability.
I’m presenting these videos hoping the reader is past the point of denial. Anyone who has honestly applied themselves to studying 9/11 from the standpoint of basic physics alone (if you don’t understand basic physics, learn it, it’s your patriotic duty) already understands the level of deception going on in the government and media and what it implies for the fascistic structure of power in this country. Cast in a larger context of wholesale obstetrical abuse and brainwashing, toxic food, miseducation, goverment controlled drug running and the known history of wall street connections to mass murder in europe, southeast asia, indonesia and latin america, there’s little doubt in my mind of the intent of the elites. If you’re not there already, just keep your mind open and remember that history repeats itself precisely because of the tenacity of the financial, political and self-perpetuating social processes which currently dominate this country against all humanitarian impulses.
As American bombs rain down upon Libya on the premise that Qaddafi was brutalizing indigenous pro-democratic demonstrators, the accusing fingers of Libya, Iran, China, Syria, Belarus, and a growing number of other nations are pointing at Washington for funding and plotting regime change against their respective governments. Either in an act of absolute hubris or to spin emerging evidence that the US indeed has been funding and preparing the ground for the “Arab Spring” for years, New York Times has recently published “U.S. Groups Helped Nurture Arab Uprisings.” Essentially throwing these activists under the bus, New York Times exposes that the April 6 Youth Movement in Egypt, the Bahrain Center for Human Rights, and Entsar Qadhi of Yemen amongst others, received training and financing from the International Republican Institute, the National Democratic Institute, and the Neo-Conservative lined Freedom House…
President Obama ordered his advisers last August to produce a secret report on unrest in the Arab world, which concluded that without sweeping political changes, countries from Bahrain to Yemen were ripe for popular revolt. Known as a Presidential Study Directive,
the 18-page classified report identified likely flashpoints, most notably Egypt, and solicited proposals for how the administration could push for political change in countries with autocratic rulers who are also valuable allies of the United States…how to balance American strategic interests and avert broader instability … The White House held weekly meetings with experts from the State
Department, the C.I.A. and other agencies. The process was led by Dennis B. Ross, the presidentbs senior adviser on the Middle East; Samantha Power, a senior director at the National Security Council who handles human rights issues; and Gayle Smith, senior director responsible for global development….The report singles out four
for close scrutiny, which an official said…suggest Jordan, Egypt, Bahrain and Yemen.
A photo taken by Marco di Lauro/AP in Iraq in 2003 was presented by US State Secretary Kerry on August 30, 2013 as evidence of “Assad’s chemical attack.”
… In summary, US, British and French services are 100% certain that the Syrian Arab army gassed an unknown number of civilians:
1. For this they would have used a new kind of old sarin gas that does not affect women.
2. For four days, the United States observed the preparing of the crime without intervening.
3. The day before use, the magic gas killed children who were kidnapped by jihadists two weeks earlier and more than 200 miles away.
4. These events are known through authentic films made and sometimes posted in advance on YouTube.
5. They are confirmed by a telephone interception produced by the Israeli enemy.
6. Western secret services have a secret method for identifying sarin gas without having to culture human tissue.
7. As it would be the fifteenth such operation, the “régime” would have crossed a “red line ” and should be “punished” by bombing it to deprive it of its means of defense.
In international law, war propaganda is the most serious crime because it makes all other crimes possible.
These criminal idiots really have their act together don’t they. We US taxpayers should be proud.
