Nelson Mandela is not George Washington

Obama ad-Dajjal compares NM to GW:

George Washington did not sell out his countrymen to the global ruling class. Nelson Mandela did.

And so did Obama ad-Dajjal.

Not a Christian nation?

Does anyone believe this statement?


Anyone who thinks that the DARPA-birthed Internet would not be a tool of the military is delusional.

That being said, the mess we have gotten ourselves into is horrible and may be irreversible. We are dependent on this stuff, and we get more so every day.

Question: Why hasn't Oracle been mentioned in the spying scandal? Java runs on as many or more machines than any other software. Is it immune to spying and abuse? Would anyone even know?

Best of times, worst of times

Obama ad-Dajjal and his minions spend our money like drunken sailors while we go hungry:

This is the most disgraceful administration in my lifetime.

We should have talked to the Taliban long ago

So says a British general:

We're paying the price for an "unconditional surrender" mentality that no longer yields any results.

Post on Facebook, go to jail

Sad stories on the WSWS about Facebook posts gone bad:

My suggestion: D
on't make threats, anywhere, even in jest. They serve no purpose other than to get you in trouble.

Everyone should leave Facebook. What's it good for anyway, other than serving as a means for you to give the feds permission to spy on you?

Who is committing treason against whom?

The US Constitution defines "treason" in the following way:

Article III, Section 3
1:  Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.

I would argue the following:

  • Obama ad-Dajjal and his minions appear to be continually waging economic war against the States and giving aid and comfort to the enemies of the States (a prime example of which is the drug cartels which the feds support).
  • Edward Snowden did not levy war against the States, nor did he adhere to their enemies (a prime example of which is the criminal group known as the NSA which the feds support).

Since Obama ad-Dajjal and his minions appear to be enemies of the States, isn't anyone who adheres to THEM committing treason to the States?

To me it all boils down to this: the sovereign States never surrendered their sovereignty; it was taken from them by force. Shouldn't they reassert it, and start acting in their own best interests instead of continuing to act in the interest of their apparent enemies Obama ad-Dajjal and his minions?

If the States were all to secede together, then what Congress would be left to declare war against them?

Has capitalism failed the world?

So asks this article on the Al Jazeera website:

I think it is the people of the United States of America who have failed the world. We failed to punish the criminality of the bankgangsters and the corporations, and we failed to meaningfully regulate the greed that led to that criminality. And we failed in that regard because "our" government was bribed by those bankgangsters and corporations, and we failed to hold them accountable, too.

Stop slobbering over Obama ad-Dajjal the war criminal

So says Irish politician Clare Daly:

That's a lady with balls who speaks the truth.

Congress vs. The People

Don't forget for a second that it was CONGRESS that killed your privacy and empowered the NSA to spy on the world:

Not some shadowy enemy somewhere ... CONGRESS.

Senate stabs the American worker in the back

The Senate's immigration bill includes ObamaDon'tCare-related incentives to give hiring preference to amnestied immigrants:

Dear US citizens: "Your" government demands your absolute obedience and devotion, while at the same time hating you from the very core of its being.

All these delusional acts of the federal government can have but one outcome: the downfall of the United States.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
-Abraham Lincoln

And Honest Abe didn't mean just the freedom to do silly new things; he meant the specific rights and freedoms listed in the US Constitution AND the right of the people to decide what's best for themselves.

Do we have a China problem?

The real problem is that China has a better reputation than we do:

While we have been acting like assholes and killing people, China has been making friends. Whose fault is that?

Watch US-backed militants behead two Christians

If you ever wanted to witness an actual beheading or two, here's your chance:

Did you notice how many of the audience captured the event using their cell phones? Thank God for technology.

By the way, this whole thing reminds me of the public lynchings which occurred all over the US in the last century. The whole town would turn out to watch, and many would take pictures and carve off body parts for souvenirs.

There's a savage in all of us, and all it takes is the wrong circumstances to bring it out.

Pray that this never comes to our shores again. Pray very hard, because that's the only tool we have left.

Yes, we have an illegal regime

Good story about the persecution of a whistle blower:

I think any reasonable person would agree that Obama ad-Dajjal and his minions are persecuting whistle blowers to protect government wrong doers. Period.

To "protect us"? What a joke.

The criminal NSA

So says this op-ed in The New York Times:

I agree completely. NEVER let a lawyer tell you what the law means; that is a right which belongs to the people.

Unfortunately for all of us, the people don't seem to give a damn any more.

Three Days of the Condor

Higgins: It's simple economics. Today it's oil, right? In 10 or 15 years … food, plutonium. Maybe even sooner. Now, what do you think the people are gonna want us to do then?

Turner: Ask them.

Higgins: Not now. Then. Ask them when they're running out. Ask them when there’s no heat in their homes and they’re cold. Ask them when their engines stop. Ask them when people who’ve never known hunger start going hungry. You want to know something? They won't want us to ask them. They'll just want us to get it for them.

That may have been the plan then, but the plan now appears to be just to shoot us. It's a hell of a lot easier and a lot cheaper than sharing the remaining water, food, and energy with us.

That's what happens when corporations not beholden to any nation state own everything.

Does the US Border Patrol facilitate drug smuggling?

The Censored News blog says that they do:

So, the United States apparently does all of the following:

  • Provide assault weapons for the cartels
  • Help get drug shipments across the border
  • Launder the profits through our too-big-to-jail banks

Sounds like a sweet deal to me.

Immigration reform? What's the point?

You getting the big picture yet? No? Then go back to sleep.

NSA has been spying on everyone all along

So says William Blum:

You've probably wondered how Bill Gates, the Google-ites, and Facebook got so big and so rich so fast. Here's a possible reason: they appear to have helped Uncle Sam spy on all of us -

In February 2000, it was disclosed that the Strategic Affairs Delegation (DAS), the intelligence arm of the French Defense Ministry, had prepared a report in 1999 which also asserted that NSA had helped to install secret programs in Microsoft software. According to the DAS report, “it would seem that the creation of Microsoft was largely supported, not least financially, by the NSA, and that IBM was made to accept the [Microsoft] MS-DOS operating system by the same administration.” The report stated that there had been a “strong suspicion of a lack of security fed by insistent rumors about the existence of spy programs on Microsoft, and by the presence of NSA personnel in Bill Gates’ development teams.” The Pentagon, said the report, was Microsoft’s biggest client in the world.

So ... it's not just Obama ad-Dajjal, although as the public face of the scandal he's probably the biggest liar of them all.

That's REALLY a murderer in the White House

Obama ad-Dajjal and his minions admit to assassinating four US citizens:

Why hasn't he been impeached? Treason is defined in the Constitution, and so are its elements of proof.

Impeachment is also defined in the Constitution, and it may be the only tool we have left to stop this tyrant. Too bad Congress doesn't have the balls to use it.

We have a MASSIVE meth problem

So says the UN Office of Drugs and Crime:

Take note of several things suggested by this article:

  • El Chapo apparently is a US informant,
  • Eric Holder apparently gave him assault weapons, and
  • Rahm Emanuel apparently gave him free access to Chicago.

And Obama ad-Dajjal doesn't want to close our southern border. I wonder why?

As it was before, so it is now. America is the master of counterinsurgency, and genocide is the best method in the COIN playbook:

  • In the early days, it was guns-booze-smallpox blankets;
  • Now it's guns-drugs-AIDS.

This country will be gutted and fully under mafiocracy control within a generation. America lets you do whatever you want, but what you want are mainly things that will destroy you and/or put you into jail.

A Supreme Court for the few

The Supreme Court's decisions have an immeasurable impact, but only for the few:

Somehow the court can find gay rights in the Constitution, but not the following (which, unlike gay rights, are specifically mentioned):

  • Freedom of religion
  • Freedom of speech
  • Freedom of the press
  • Freedom of assembly
  • Freedom from self incrimination
  • The right to due process
  • The right to keep and bear arms

Yes, the Constitution says you can do what you want, but it also says the government's powers are limited. Those limits MUST be restored, or the tyranny which allows you freedom today will take it away tomorrow.

US media lying about Syria

So says Henry Kissinger:

On the other hand, who cares? The decision to destroy Syria has already been made.

CIA runs al-Qaeda in Syria

So says Iranian Press TV:

If true this would explain a lot of things:

  • The real basis for the 9/11 attacks
  • Why the US took so long to go after bin Laden
  • Why bin Laden had to be murdered and not captured
  • Why the "war on terror" may be renamed but will never end

Pork bullets send Muslims to hell

So says this article:

I have a DVD of a movie entitled "The Real Glory" starring Gary Cooper and David Niven about the Spanish-American War. Cooper's character threatens Muslims in the Phillipines with water torture and wrapping them in pig skin to ensure they can't go to paradise when they die. It's pure post-9/11 hatred, but in the sense of déjà vu all over again. And that's what these pork bullets are about, too.

Frankly, America does not just hate all religions, we hate God. And that's a fact. If you don't believe me, just wake up and look around.

Woz says Snowden is a hero

“When the Internet first came, I thought it was just the beacon of freedom. People could communicate with anyone, anywhere, and nobody could stop it … Now it turns out that every single thing we send as email counts as publicly viewable and it’s totally open and exposed, and can be taken for whatever reason. That wasn’t supposed to be. That wasn’t where we thought the Internet was going to go. We thought it was going to elevate the really average people over huge, big, controlling governments and protect us from tyrants.” Instead, “it allows the tyrants to get tighter control over more and more of our lives,” Wozniak lamented.

I couldn't agree more.

So why are we letting people like Obama ad-Dajjal and John "Summer Soldier" Kerry run this particular farce for the tyrants who have stolen our lives?

13 years for insulting a bank

Have we no sense of decency? At long last, have we left no sense of decency?

I guess not ... punishment is more important. And the more insane we become, the more brutal the punishments we mete out.

Some day, computers will run our "justice system"; and by that I mean machines with artificial intelligence and no compassion. However, we shall have lost any real sense of justice long before that.

NYC flooded with drones

And you ain't seen nothing yet:

Skynet, here we come !!! It's just a matter of time.

Obama ad-Dajjal, the Master Con-Man

So says Professor James Petras in this EXCELLENT description of recent US Presidents:

Well worth reading.

Of course, he doesn't actually call him "ad-Dajjal", but that is exactly what the "master con-man" is.

Intelsat violates US Bill of Rights

So says Professor Mark Mason:

It also violates Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Note that the US is AGAIN a violator of human rights and sovereignty.

What "wrong" did Iran ever do, other than defend itself against US aggression?

Who's the lawless country?

The US threatens Russia and China, saying they are not following the law:

This would be funny if it weren't so disgustingly hypocritical.

Donald Trump knows we're screwed

And now you know too.

Is our government being honest with us? NO.

Should a country in desperate straits be attacking its energy industry (i.e., coal)? NO.

Obama ad-Dajjal is our worst enemy. If you don't agree, send me your evidence that he is not.

Official leaks v. unofficial leaks

Here's an article about restructuring of the US Army:

Please note the following sentence, which is usually found in all "official leak" stories:

Officials provided details on the plans on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

Someone please tell me, why is this leak about troop strength which DOES affect national security NOT treason, while Ed Snowdon's leaks about how the government is spying on its own citizens allegedly are treasonous?

Hillary Clinton, ruling class wannabe

I'm still wondering how Chelsea Clinton can afford a $10 million apartment, aren't you?

Brazil is a democracy, US is not

Brazilians are willing to DO something to stop their government from continually screwing them:

Americans are not. We have become lazy cowards.

Laziness and cowardice are not characteristics of democracy-loving peoples.

Not what Thomas Jefferson had in mind

Brilliant essay by Fred Reed:

If this isn’t quite dictatorship, we are rapidly getting there. Wait a few years.


Bankgangsters screw Ireland

Bankgangsters were caught on tape talking about their further screwing of Ireland:

This suggests that the people need more data if they are to be protected from bankgangsters and corporations. Thugs like Obama ad-Dajjal seem to want to keep such data out of the public domain.

Is he helping us? NO.

Do we deserve better? YES.

And by "better" I do NOT mean Hillary the Harpy Clinton. Electing her would send exactly the WRONG message.

The war on coal is a war on all of us

The US economy runs on coal. A war on coal will have catastrophic consequences for all of us:

Why are we chasing Ed Snowden, when the true destroyers of our national security are right here in the White House?

Yes, he can

Lie, cheat, steal; and still we do nothing:

[poster borrowed from this website @]

Chinese workers take US boss hostage

They say he hasn't paid them for two months:

Why haven't there been similar actions here in the US? Corporate leaders robbed us blind, paid little or no taxes, and looked the other way as millions lost their homes and went hungry.

And not a single one of those bastards has been punished ... by anyone. Why is that? Is it because we're law abiding, or because citizens of the United States no longer have the tools necessary to survive in the eternal war of the rich against the poor?

US military is an instrument of inquisition and torture

So says Gordon Duff, senior editor of Veterans Today and a former sniper: (article and short audio segment)

“There was never any honor to war. The idea of finding the mentally unstable, dressing them up in uniforms, pasting ribbons on them, sending them out to kill the poor people of the world on behalf of Wall Street, that’s exactly what’s it about. That’s what it’s all about.”

As a former sniper during the Vietnam War, he suggests that any sniper, including hero Chris Kyle, is just a murderer.

At least 22 veterans kill themselves every day. Does anyone really care? As a veteran and father of an active duty soldier, I do.

Infrastructure of a police state

Excellent article about the NSA:

It's instructive to note that the "Five Eyes" countries (US, UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand) are the ones who brag the loudest about being "democratic". What a crock of shit!

This police state infrastructure may have another purpose. Some day soon will come "the great culling". The human population is too high, and there is not enough food and water to go around (i.e., not enough to support both the rich and the poor). If the powers that be decide to cull the herd, this may be how they will discover which persons to kill and how to find them.

And if you're aware of what the phrase "the singularity is near" means, this infrastructure being constructed under the guise of "national security" will hasten its coming.

So NOW we want Russian cooperation?

Saw this in The New York Times:

The White House, in its first official statement released just after midnight Monday morning, expressed disappointment in Hong Kong’s decision to allow Mr. Snowden to leave and pressed Russia to turn him over, citing the cooperation between the two countries since the Boston Marathon bombings.

[You can read the rest @]

So ... we ignore terrorist warnings from the Russians for years, but now we're gonna cooperate after the BM bombings?

In other words, the federal government didn't lift a finger to prevent the killing and maiming of US citizens, but now it's rushing into action to cover its own ass.

What a crock of shit.

Where all the money goes

Here's a good example from the LA Times:,0,952035.story

I find this to be repulsive: capitalism and property rights "entitle" the owner to a life of opulence, while condemning the rest of us to a life of squalor. And heaven forbid that the common people ever be "entitled" to the Social Security investment that was forced from their paychecks and then stolen by the US Congress.

Why is one form of theft protected, while another is criminalized?

The real John Kerry

This is the real John Kerry, a step-and-fetch-it for the ruling class:

All that "winter soldier" stuff was a crock of shit. What a hypocritical jackass he has become (or perhaps always was).

They hate our freedoms

The more we learn about it, the less legitimacy this government appears to have:

The gang of coercive utopians  known as the US government hates our freedoms; plain and simple.

Senate votes on immigration bill before reading it

These "Senators" should be recalled.

Splitting apart the USA

Pat Buchanan suggests that the influx of Hispanics will split apart the USA:

You are right on the money, Pat. In spite of all the rhetoric, Obama ad-Dajjal doesn't give a shit about Hispanics. He just wants to destroy the USA, and now he's got almost four years left to do it.

The rationale for keeping things secret

The feds often give the following reasons for keeping things secret and for punishing those who leak secret info:

  • If released, the knowledge would compromise their sources of information, and
  • If released, the knowledge would jeopardize the safety of their spies.

Well, Uncle Sam, I want you to know two things:

  • I don't want you to have those sources that you use to spy on me and my neighbors, and
  • I don't want you to have any spies watching me and my neighbors.

If you weren't acting like such a jackass all the time, we wouldn't have all these enemies. Most if not all of them just want you to stop fucking with them, and you have my permission to do so.

Fucked by Facebook

If you believe ANYTHING you hear from Google, Facebook, etc., you're a fool.

It's time to boycott, divest, and sanction all of them. You can live without the Internet, and frankly you have to now.

Is Lebanon spiraling out of control?

That's what the people at al Jazeera are suggesting:

Should that be the case, perhaps it's because Lebanon is on America's seven nation hit list:

Two down, two falling, and three to go.

And clearly this agenda, whomever it belongs to, is more important than balancing our budget, stabilizing our currency, feeding our children, or helping the poor and the sick of the United States.

Selling us out BIG TIME

The so-called Trans-Pacific Partnership is a sellout of titanic proportions:

Clearly, this is government in secret by and for corporations, to the detriment of real people.

Obama ad-Dajjal and Hillary the Harpy, not Edward Snowden, are the REAL traitors to this nation.

Say bye-bye to the USA.


Taxation by Dumb and Dumber

Hefty refunds apparently were given to illegal aliens in Atlanta:

I guess this is how the IRS earned all those bonuses we're giving them.

Ours is a government of shitheads.

Extradition by Dumb and Dumber

The NSA leaker Edward Snowden "got away" because the US request for extradition did not meet legal requirements:

Way back when, the Taliban also refused to extradite Osama bin Laden because the US request did not meet legal requirements.

What legal requirements? The requests provided no evidence of the guilt of the accused. They merely stated "hand him over, or else".

No one believes or respects the US government any more, nor should they. They're a pack of lawless thugs. Thank God that China still has a moral compass.

Born in Kenya

Yahoo! News has confirmed that Obama ad-Dajjal was born in Kenya:

I have seen no convincing evidence that he was born in the US, and lots of poorly concealed evidence that he WAS born in Kenya. Since no real investigation was conducted, the issue is still open.

By the way, this is a perfect example of what Cass Sunstein calls a "crippled epistemology":

Those who worship Obama ad-Dajjal declare that no "proof" of his birthplace is necessary and that a photo-shopped phony document is good enough to justify their fantastic assertions. And somehow, those who require bona fide documents as proof are "nuts". If our epistemology is crippled, it is Obama ad-Dajjal and his minions who have crippled it, not the people.

Believe what you want. Ultimately the USA will NOT be able to shut out reality forever. THAT is why Obama ad-Dajjal is so paranoid about alleged leakers: he has LOTS to hide.

Breaking the hunger strike

According to The Guardian, the US is using brutal methods to break the Gitmo hunger strike:

We could just let them go.

But that would be "admitting defeat" by people who (mostly) should never have been kidnapped in the first place.

What kind of nation never admits that it could be wrong, even when everyone else on the planet knows that we are?

Wi-Fi is about to get a lot faster

So says the LA Times:,0,6358149.story

No doubt this will make it easier for the government to spy on us. Thank you, techo geeks, for selling us out again.

The lesson of Brazil

Most Brazilians seem to be unhappy:

Something tells me most Americans are just as unhappy, but all we get to hear are the talking heads (most of whom are rich bastards).

In Brazil:

A rich country is not one where everybody has a car but rather one in which a rich man takes the bus.

In the USA:

A rich man is one who fucks the poor and refuses to pay taxes.

An invitation from SubComandante Marcos

The Zapatistas are opening a school:

Why is the USA helping the rebels in Syria, but not helping the rebels in Mexico (i.e., the Zapatistas)?
  • We have no national security interest in Syria.
  • If the Zapatistas were running Mexico, we would not need immigration reform and the flood of drugs from Mexico would cease.

US charges Snowden with espionage

Read all about it @


The act of securing information of a military or political nature that a competing nation holds secret. It can involve the analysis of diplomatic reports, publications, statistics, and broadcasts, as well as spying, a clandestine activity carried out by an individual or individuals working under secret identity to gather classified information on behalf of another entity or nation. In the United States, the organization that heads most activities dedicated to espionage is the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

Espionage, commonly known as spying, is the practice of secretly gathering information about a foreign government or a competing industry, with the purpose of placing one's own government or corporation at some strategic or financial advantage. Federal law prohibits espionage when it jeopardizes the national defense or benefits a foreign nation (18 U.S.C.A. § 793). Criminal espionage involves betraying U.S. government secrets to other nations.

By this definition, it looks like he's screwed.

Scooter Libby got off with jail time. Snowden is likely to hang. Is that fair?

I think people who reveal government wrong doing should not be prosecuted as spies. Unfortunately for him (and us), the government doesn't think it's doing anything wrong.

More about the death of Michael Hastings

An eyewitness account of the crash:

Michael Hastings contacted WikiLeaks lawyer Jennifer Robinson just a few hours before he died, saying that the FBI was investigating him. But on Thursday, the FBI said it was conducting no such investigation. "At no time was journalist Michael Hastings ever under investigation by the FBI," the bureau said in a statement to the Burlington Free Press.

Who you gonna believe? The FBI?

Obviously, something strange happened. A car does not rocket down that street at that speed for no reason.

Why are we sending troops to Egypt?

So they can protect the border with Israel?

What the hell for? Is Egypt going to invade Israel?

This is fucking STUPID !!!

Understanding the latest leaks is understanding the rise of a new fascism

An essay by John Pilger
20 June 2013

In his book, 'Propaganda', published in 1928, Edward Bernays wrote: "The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organised habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country."

The American nephew of Sigmund Freud, Bernays invented the term "public relations" as a euphemism for state propaganda. He warned that an enduring threat to the invisible government was the truth-teller and an enlightened public.

In 1971, whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg leaked US government files known as The Pentagon Papers, revealing that the invasion of Vietnam was based on systematic lying. Four years later, Frank Church conducted sensational hearings in the US Senate: one of the last flickers of American democracy. These laid bare the full extent of the invisible government: the domestic spying and subversion and warmongering by intelligence and "security" agencies and the backing they received from big business and the media, both conservative and liberal.

Speaking about the National Security Agency (NSA), Senator Church said: "I know that the capacity that there is to make tyranny in America, and we must see to it that this agency and all agencies that possess this technology operate within the law... so that we never cross over that abyss. That is the abyss from which there is no return."

On 11 June 2013, following the revelations in the Guardian by NSA contractor Edward Snowden, Daniel Ellsberg wrote that the US had now fallen into "that abyss".

Snowden's revelation that Washington has used Google, Facebook, Apple and other giants of consumer technology to spy on almost everyone, is further evidence of modern form of fascism -  that is the "abyss". Having nurtured old-fashioned fascists around the world - from Latin America to Africa and Indonesia - the genie has risen at home. Understanding this is as important as understanding the criminal abuse of technology.

Fred Branfman, who exposed the "secret" destruction of tiny Laos by the US Air Force in the 1960s and 70s, provides an answer to those who still wonder how a liberal African-American president, a professor of constitutional law, can command such lawlessness. "Under Mr. Obama," he wrote, "no president has done more to create the infrastructure for a possible future police state." Why? Because Obama, like George W Bush, understands that his role is not to indulge those who voted for him but to expand "the most powerful institution in the history of the world, one that has killed, wounded or made homeless well over 20 million human beings, mostly civilians, since 1962."

In the new American cyber-power, only the revolving doors have changed. The director of Google Ideas, Jared Cohen, was adviser to Condaleeza Rice, the former secretary of state in the Bush administration who lied that Saddam Hussein could attack the US with nuclear weapons. Cohen and Google's executive chairman, Eric Schmidt - they met in the ruins of Iraq - have co-authored a book, The New Digital Age, endorsed as visionary by the former CIA director Michael Hayden and the war criminals Henry Kissinger and Tony Blair. The authors make no mention of the Prism spying programme, revealed by Edward Snowden, that provides the NSA access to all of us who use Google.

Control and dominance are the two words that make sense of this. These are exercised by political, economic and military designs, of which mass surveillance is an essential part, but also by insinuating propaganda in the public consciousness. This was Edward Bernays's point. His two most successful PR campaigns were convincing Americans they should go to war in 1917 and persuading women to smoke in public; cigarettes were "torches of freedom" that would hasten women's liberation.

It is in popular culture that the fraudulent "ideal" of America as morally superior, a "leader of the free world", has been most effective. Yet, even during Hollywood's most jingoistic periods there were exceptional films, like those of the exile Stanley Kubrick, and adventurous European films would have US distributors. These days, there is no Kubrick, no Strangelove, and the US market is almost closed to foreign films.

When I showed my own film, 'The War on Democracy', to a major, liberally-minded US distributor, I was handed a laundry list of changes required, to "ensure the movie is acceptable". His memorable sop to me was: "OK, maybe we could drop in Sean Penn as narrator. Would that satisfy you?" Lately, Katherine Bigelow's torture-apologising 'Zero Dark Thirty' and Alex Gibney's 'We Steal Secrets', a cinematic hatchet job on Julian Assange, were made with generous backing by Universal Studios, whose parent company until recently was General Electric. GE manufactures weapons, components for fighter aircraft and advance surveillance technology. The company also has lucrative interests in "liberated" Iraq.

The power of truth-tellers like Bradley Manning, Julian Assange, and Edward Snowden is that they dispel a whole mythology carefully constructed by the corporate cinema, the corporate academy and the corporate media. WikiLeaks is especially dangerous because it provides truth-tellers with a means to get the truth out. This was achieved by 'Collatoral Murder', the cockpit video of an US Apache helicopter allegedly leaked by Bradley Manning. The impact of this one video marked Manning and Assange for state vengeance. Here were US airmen murdering journalists and maiming children in a Baghdad street, clearly enjoying it, and describing their atrocity as "nice". Yet, in one vital sense, they did not get away with it; we are witnesses now, and the rest is up to us.

[borrowed from]

Please note that "our" mainstream media, "our" Congress, and "our" leaders are doing their best to make sure that they DO get away with it. Is that what we want? The rest is up to us, but WE are just sitting on our asses doing nothing.

Nothing begets nothing.

Tyranny openly arrived at

The gist of this article is that Congress is negotiating in the open what will ultimately become the US police state:

Folks, that's what the Nazis did. They openly broadcast what they were doing at every step on the road to totalitarianism. If you don't believe me, read Backing Hitler: Consent and Coercion in Nazi Germany, by Robert Gellately:

Culling chilling evidence from primary news sources and citing dozens of case studies, Gellately shows how media reports and press stories were an essential dimension of Hitler's popular dictatorship. Indeed, a vast array of material on the concentration camps, the violent campaigns against social outsiders, and the Nazis' radical approaches to "law and order" was published in the media of the day, and was widely read by a highly literate population of Germans. Hitler, Gellately reveals, did not try to hide the existence of the Gestapo or of concentration camps. Nor did the Nazis try to cow the people into submission. Instead they set out to win converts by building on popular images, cherished ideals, and long-held phobias. And their efforts succeeded, Gellately concludes, for the Gestapo's monstrous success was due, in large part, to ordinary German citizens who singled out suspected "enemies" in their midst, reporting their suspicions and allegations freely and in a spirit of cooperation and patriotism. [from]

That's the scariest thing about what is happening in America today: the possibility that the majority of people will go along with what the government is doing, for the same twisted reasons the Germans did so many years ago.

Our government rules through fear

So says Glenn Greenwald:

I agree with him. Do you?

Is this Michael Hasting's car crash?

Also @

This looks more like a fire-bombed car to me.

A McChrystal staffer allegedly said to him, “We’ll hunt you down and kill you if we don’t like what you write.”

Lesson for all investigative reporters? Don't write insulting stories about Army generals.

Lesson for the rest of us? This is the same kind of shit that is happening in Russia: real reporters are silenced; killed as necessary to intimidate the rest.

US = Russia = mafiocracy. How do you like your new role as sheep? Get used to it. I don't see any relief on the horizon, do you?

Israel accused of torturing children

Here's what our Israeli "buddies" apparently are doing:

Something to think about: they are the only allies we have in the world, and even they spit in our faces every chance they get.

Obama's "soft" totalitarianism

A monitored human being is not a free human being. And every state that systematically contravenes human rights, even in the alleged service of security, is acting criminally.

So says Der Spiegel in Germany:

Soft or not, it's still totalitarianism. Don't him get away with calling it anything else.

Isn't it ironic that the Germans now have to remind us what "totalitarianism" is? How the world has changed!

What do Whitey Bulger and Saddam Hussein have in common?

What do Whitey Bulger and Saddam Hussein have in common? They both thrived because they apparently did "wet work" for Uncle Sam.

Whitey, who is currently on trial in Boston for nineteen murders, was an FBI informant. The information he gave Uncle Sam led to the destruction of rival crime gangs, and in return Uncle Sam apparently looked the other way as Whitey eliminated many of his (and their) enemies:

Saddam, who was tried and hanged in 2006, was a long-time informant and ally of the United States. He killed millions of Iranians using weapons we sold him, and in return Uncle Sam apparently looked the other way as Saddam eliminated many of his (and our) enemies:

The other thing they have in common is this: like all of America's "allies" and "informants", both Whitey and Saddam eventually outlived their usefulness and themselves had to be eliminated. In both cases it took a while, but the "long arm of the law" (a.k.a. America's Murder Inc.) eventually caught up with them.

What kind of a government does business in secret with the devil and then when discovered says, "We only did it because we love you"?

You tell me, folks. You tell me.

Much more than just "an attack on free speech"

Here's the latest from Senator Mitch McConnell:

What is happening in the United States today is MUCH MORE than an attack on free speech. It is a vicious assault on the very concept of government of the people, by the people, and for the people. This is the rich destroying the poor; the powerful ganging up on the weak, the ruling class walking all over the serfs they think they have the right to rule.

If Americans don't FIX this, they haven't earned the right to be a free people. Why are we sending our sons and daughters to Afghanistan to get their legs and genitals blown apart, but not lifting a finger to stop the real enemies of American freedoms right here at home?

President George W. Bush once infamously declared, "They hate our freedoms". By "they" he meant the global ruling class, the tyrants right here at home, Obama ad-Dajjal and his minions, and Hillary the Harpy Clinton.

What do you do when the government becomes the enemy of the people? Here's what Thomas Jefferson suggested:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. --That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Does anyone still believe this, or is the Declaration of Independence just a worthless scrap of paper?

It's all Harry Truman's fault

Here are the latest spy revelations from Russ Tice, former intelligence analyst and NSA whistle blower:

The whole concept of a "national security state" is an abomination. The DHS, the NSA, the CIA, and the FBI are WAY out of control and CANNOT be reformed. And if they were abolished (an impossible outcome), private entities would spring up to take their place (that's why Mullen and Petraeus were hired after retirement to be private spooks).

Conclusion? It's all Harry Truman's fault. As he truthfully remarked, "the buck stops here".

An Act to promote the national security by providing for a Secretary of Defense; for a National Military Establishment; for a Department of the Army, a Department of the Navy, a Department of the Air Force; and for the coordination of the activities of the National Military Establishment with other departments and agencies of the Government concerned with the national security.

And Harry authorized the NSA, too:

And authorized use of the first atomic bombs.

Busy little guy, who in the interest of "national security" absolutely destroyed what America used to be.
