Snowden Outs 9/11 Bullshit

I have always suspected that the chief reason the US government was worried about Assange, Hammond, Manning, and Snowden was not because lives were at stake, but because there was a danger they would discover that 9/11 was an inside job, Obama ad-Dajjal was born in Kenya, Osama bin Laden was not killed by Navy Seals, and the Iranian nuclear threat is a hoax.

Now Snowden has come close to confirming at least one of these suspicions:

“You know, and this is a key question that the 9/11 Commission considered. And what they found, in the post-mortem, when they looked at all of the classified intelligence from all of the different intelligence agencies, they found that we had all of the information we needed as an intelligence community, as a classified sector, as the national defense of the United States to detect this plot,” Snowden said. “We actually had records of the phone calls from the United States and out. The CIA knew who these guys were. The problem was not that we weren’t collecting information, it wasn’t that we didn’t have enough dots, it wasn’t that we didn’t have a haystack, it was that we did not understand the haystack that we have.”

That's one way to explain it. But the fact that John Ashcroft, certainly not the sharpest tool in Dubya's shed, understood that haystack well enough to stay off commercial air flights right before 9/11 tells me otherwise.

They knew. They've always known. And they've always looked the other way until after their cleverly constructed traps had snapped shut on the designated patsies:

Thoughts For The Day

“For the most part we do not first see, and then define; we define first and then see. In the great blooming, buzzing confusion of the outer world we pick out what our culture has already defined for us, and we tend to perceive that which we have picked out in the form stereotyped for us by our culture.”

“The only feeling that anyone can have about an event he does not experience is the feeling aroused by his mental image of that event … For it is clear enough that under certain conditions men respond as powerfully to fictions as they do to realities.”
Walter Lippmann

Israel and US Fabricated Iranian Threat

Here is a report which contains an embedded interview with Gareth Porter, a researcher who has proven there is no Iranian nuclear threat:

I have listened to many podcast interviews with Porter. He is a credible evaluater of the true situation in Iran. If you are interested, you can find them at The Scott Horton Show website:

By the way, have you noticed how Hollywood supported the bogus "Iranian threat" narrative with movies such as White House Down? Joseph Goebbels would have been proud:

Gasoline Sales Down By Nearly 75%

U.S. “gasoline consumption” – as measured by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) itself – has plummeted by nearly 75%, from its all-time peak in July of 1998. A near-75% collapse in U.S. gasoline consumption has occurred in little more than 15 years.

Since the beginning of “the U.S. economic recovery”; U.S. gasoline consumption has plummeted by nearly 2/3. As the pseudo-recovery began, and supposedly “strengthened”; U.S. refineries were ordered to fill up the inventories of their dealer network, in anticipation of the increased gasoline consumption which would have occurred in any real “recovery”.

But there never was an increase in U.S. gasoline consumption, because there never was a U.S. economic recovery. Rather, the Greater Depression has simply (and relentlessly) continued to pulverize the U.S. economy like a meat-grinder. To hide this devastation (as well as is possible), the government produces a wide array of its pseudo-statistics, that all contain myriad “adjustments” – which make it possible for these liars-with-numbers to distort the statistical picture of the U.S. economy beyond recognition.

I'm sure that Obama ad-Dajjal and his minions are ecstatic over this and can't wait to do the same to US coal consumption. Say bye-bye to the US economy ... permanently.

Update: By the way, if there is a glut of gasoline, why haven't prices gone down? Doesn't the law of supply and demand work any more?

And if there is no US demand, then why is the Keystone XL Pipeline needed? According to the Rainforest Action Network:

Keystone XL is an export pipeline. In presentations to their investors, Gulf Coast refiners have revealed plans to refine Keystone’s Canadian crude into diesel and other products for export to Europe and Latin America. Proceeds from these exports are earned tax-free. Much of the fuel refined from the pipeline’s heavy crude oil will never reach U.S. drivers’ tanks.”

Compassion Is Now A Crime

US bankgangsters are seldom brought to justice, but police and the courts are quite adept at stopping and prosecuting the few compassionate people who are left:

My fellow Americans, you are sick; truly sick in so many ways.

By the way, here is a grand bargain for those of you who despise the homeless - discount tickets to hear Hillary Rodham talk about her plans to destroy America:

Each ticket comes with your own personalized barf bag.

Obama ad-Dajjal = Helter Skelter

I remember the first time I heard The Beatles (the so-called "White Album"). I was in college, and it was 1968. The Vietnam War was still in full swing, Richard Nixon had just been elected to the presidency, and although I didn't know it yet I was about to be drafted.

Track 24 on the album is the song "Helter Skelter". For some reason this song made a big impression on Charles Manson and his family:

Charles Manson told his followers that several White Album songs including "Helter Skelter" were a part of the Beatles' coded prophecy of an apocalyptic war in which racist and non-racist whites would be manoeuvered into virtually exterminating each other over the treatment of blacks. Upon the war's conclusion, after black militants would kill off the few whites they would know to have survived, Manson and his companions would emerge from an underground city in which they would have escaped the conflict. As the only remaining whites, they would rule blacks, who, as the vision went, would be incapable of running America. Manson employed "helter skelter" as the term for this sequence of events.

Honestly, I never heard in this music whatever it was that Charlie heard. The song and the lyrics are reproduced below. Listen and decide for yourself what it means.

However, maybe Charlie was just way ahead of his time (like maybe 46 years too early). I say this because we may now be in the midst of actual "helter skelter", courtesy of President Obama ad-Dajjal and his minions.

What is the definition of the term helter skelter? Mostly it's described this way:
  • in a confused and careless way
  • in no particular order
  • in undue haste, confusion, or disorder
  • in a haphazard manner

That's the most succinct description of the administration of President Obama ad-Dajjal that I have yet heard.

And what else about Obama ad-Dajjal is suggestive of helter skelter from Charlie Manson's perspective?
  • Greatly increased racial turmoil in the US
  • A huge influx of ill-appreciated aliens from Mexico and Central America
  • A breakdown in respect for the law
  • An unending cavalcade of social changes, including GLBT rights, same-sex marriage, and destruction of so-called traditional marriage

Where is it all leading? To helter skelter, of course.

But Charlie and his family have been discredited, so they can't give us any further guidance. Squeaky has been released, but Charlie is still in the slammer and likely will never get out. So we're on our own, and for better or worse the current "leader" of this ball of confusion (if that's what he is) is the son of Stanley and Barack, Sr.

Obama ad-Dajjal = Helter Skelter

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
Till I get to the bottom and I see you again

Do, don't you want me to love you
I'm coming down fast but I'm miles above you
Tell me, tell me, tell me, come on tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

Helter skelter, helter skelter
Helter skelter

Will you, won't you want me to make you
I'm coming down fast but don't let me break you
Tell me, tell me, tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

Look out
Helter skelter, helter skelter
Helter skelter
Look out 'cause here she comes

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
Till I get to the bottom and I see you again

Well do you, don't you want me to love you
I'm coming down fast but don't let me break you
Tell me, tell me, tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

Look out
Helter skelter, helter skelter
Helter skelter

Look out helter skelter
She's coming down fast
Yes she is
Yes she is

Israeli Apartheid: A Beginner's Guide

If you can, please read this book.

If you can't, at least read this review of the book:

Whether or not you agree with President Jimmy Carter's Peace Not Apartheid, it's difficult to see how building a separation wall leads to anything other than apartheid.

By the way, all you "Christians" need to consider the fact that what the Israelis are doing to Jerusalem is a direct contradiction to what the New Testament says:

And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
Revelation 21:22-26 KJV

Jesus revealed to John that in the New Jerusalem there would be no temple and the gates of the city would never be shut. However, in the "New Jerusalem" being built by the Israelis (with US complicity, I might add), there will be a Jewish temple and no one other than them will be allowed inside that separation wall. Then you will become the victims of Israeli apartheid. Is that what you want? Is that what G-d wants?

Whom are you going to believe: Jesus Christ (who gave His life for you), or NetanYahoo (who never did a damn thing for you)?

By the way (for all you John Hagee followers), there cannot be two "New Jerusalems", one for Jews only with a temple and another for Christians with no temple. The two covenants cannot be contradictory in time and space:

Terrorism, Or Salvation ???

Here's a report about Naxalite "terrorism" in India:

What's it all about? According to the report:

Naxalism or widespread leftwing extremism and political violence has gripped vast swathes of land in central and eastern India, establishing a so-called “red corridor”, in many resource-rich regions where tensions run high between poor farmers and industrial developers.

In other words, people who fight back when Western-inspired governments or corporations drive them off their land, steal their resources, and destroy their way of life are "terrorists".

For another perspective on this, here is Arundhati Roy's lengthy essay "Walking with the Comrades":

The so-called terrorists are people who want to live communally in a manner of their own choosing. They have resorted to violence as a last resort to protect themselves from sociocide and outright annihilation.

Someday, America, you will be subject to the same pressures and labeled as terrorists if you fight back.

Oh ... I forgot: that "someday" is now. While you slept, bankgangsters and corporations offshored your jobs, stole your wealth, siphoned off your retirement funds, privatized the commons, and made it nearly impossible for you to survive, let alone retire. Those of you who chose to fight back have been labeled "homegrown terrorists".

Terrorism, or salvation? The choice is up to you.

Turning The Military On The People

Here's a good exposé of Obama ad-Dajjal's directive authorizing the use of military force on the American people:

Like Hitler, Obama ad-Dajjal drove out the generals and admirals opposed to his plans. And now he intends to implement those plans.

Obama ad-Dajjal imitates Hitler in all things. Those who say otherwise know nothing.

Further Evidence Of Sandy Hook Hoax ???

Here is a video with evidence suggesting that the Sandy Hook Elementary School was not an operational school at the time of the "massacre":

So, why would there have been children in the building when Adam Lanza supposedly arrived with his weapons?

Very strange.

By the way, a common thread in several high-profile shootings/assassinations/bombings is the fact that multiple eyewitnesses report the presence of more than one shooter/bomber (and/or that the shooter/bomber had an accomplice), while the official government version of the event claims that only a "lone nut" was involved. This is the case for:

  • JFK assassination
  • Murrah Building bombing
  • Aurora, CO theater shootings
  • Sandy Hook school shootings
  • Isla Vista drive-by shootings

Were all those eyewitnesses wrong, or did the FBI have a vested interest in disconnecting as many dots as possible in cases like this?

FOIA Follies

Q: What does "freedom of information" mean?

A: The government is free to steal your information, while you are free to request the government to tell you what they have done. And the government is free to tell you that not only does it not have to comply with your request, but that even discussing why they don't would be an exceptionally grave threat to "national security":

What kind of horseshit is that?

I think that in such matters we should replace the term "national security" with the term "continuity of government (COG)". And the context in which COG should be  understood is "if we found out what these motherf-ckers were doing they'd all be put in jail.

The VA Scandal

We arrest someone every two seconds in America, largely for non-violent drug possession charges, yet the real criminals roam free to feast on society with zero repercussions.

I am a veteran who lives in Texas, but I have never sought VA medical care.

And I don't think I ever will. Not now.

If the sort of charges being made against the VA are true, the offenders should be prosecuted and punished. Words alone are no longer good enough.

A Unified Jerusalem ???

Israeli PM NetanYahoo says that Jerusalem is unified and will never be divided again:

He also says that all his "settlers" are going to stay where they are:

In other words, the "peace process" will be accomplished unilaterally by the Israelis, the Palestinians will be pushed out of the way, and the rest of the world can go to hell.

Unless Obama ad-Dajjal and his minions are morons (which is a distinct possibility), they should realize that the Israelis have never negotiated in good faith. They should also know that the US could put a stop to this Israeli BS in a heartbeat.

How? For starters, just follow existing law: implement BDS for their illegal nuclear weapons program. If that does not work, add them to the list of terrorist organizations and BDS for that.

But Obama ad-Dajjal and his minions will never do such things, because in spite of all the MSM drivel to the contrary they are all Israeli sock puppets. And Hillary Rodham will be no different.

Biblically speaking, what NetanYahoo is doing is quite revealing. From the Jewish point of view, he appears to be trying to become the Messiah:

According to Maimonides the Jewish Messiah will have the following characteristics:

[He will be] a Jewish leader who (a) toils in the study of Torah and is meticulous about the observance of the mitzvot, (b) influences the Jews to follow the ways of the Torah and (c) wages the "battles of G-d"—such a person is the "presumptive Moshiach."

If the person succeeded in all these endeavors, and then rebuilds the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and facilitates the ingathering of the Jews to the Land of Israel—then we are certain that he is the Moshiach.

But his statements about Jerusalem should be of particular interest to Christians because of the following:

And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
Revelation 11:1-2 KJV

In saying that Jerusalem will never again be divided, NetanYahoo in effect is saying that the Book of Revelation is irrelevant; that what Jesus revealed to John will not take place.

We therefore should do one of two things:
  • Either follow the US Constitution, which requires that we neither recognize nor hinder an establishment of religion such as Israel, or
  • Fight NetanYahoo and his antiChristian lies.

Any way you look at it, there is nothing good in store for the US from what is happening in the Middle East.


Touching Brad Pitt

Since when is it a crime to "touch" someone? Is Brad Pitt a demigod, that a person who touches him without permission should be arrested?

What should happen when you touch a god is this:

And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.
Mark 6:56 KJV

Pitt and Jolie are not gods, and the only thing that should be required of people who touch them is to wash their hands afterward.

Global Youth Unemployment

This map shows the global youth unemployment situation, with Africa and the Middle East obviously in big trouble:

Q: Since global production capacity is already too high (i.e., capacity far exceeds demand) and since all the funny money (e.g., QE cash) has done nothing to stimulate demand, just how in hell do our brutal overlords intend to find jobs for all these young people?

A: They're not.

Q: Then what do our brutal overlords intend to do?

A: According to Lawrence Wilkerson, "... by the end of this century we could have only arable land and water enough for some half billion people. What we do with the other 9 billion? Where do we bury them, even?"

My prediction is that our brutal overlords will not find jobs or food for these young people but are instead feverishly looking for a place to bury them after they starve to death.

Update: Should there be no place to bury them, our brutal overlords could always turn them into robot fuel:

The purpose of the Energetically Autonomous Tactical Robot (EATR)™ (patent pending) project is to develop and demonstrate an autonomous robotic platform able to perform long-range, long-endurance missions without the need for manual or conventional re-fueling, which would otherwise preclude the ability of the robot to perform such missions. The system obtains its energy by foraging – engaging in biologically-inspired, organism-like, energy-harvesting behavior which is the equivalent of eating. It can find, ingest, and extract energy from biomass in the environment (and other organically-based energy sources), as well as use conventional and alternative fuels (such as gasoline, heavy fuel, kerosene, diesel, propane, coal, cooking oil, and solar) when suitable.

Yes, starving unemployed youth are "biomass in the environment". And I like the "patent pending" part. After all, you don't expect the owners of the robots to eat people for free, do you?

Paul Harvey's "If I Were The Devil"

This is still worth listening to and/or reading today:

"If I were the devil … If I were the Prince of Darkness, I’d want to engulf the whole world in darkness. And I’d have a third of it’s real estate, and four-fifths of its population, but I wouldn’t be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree — Thee. So I’d set about however necessary to take over the United States. I’d subvert the churches first — I’d begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: ‘Do as you please.’

“To the young, I would whisper that ‘The Bible is a myth.’ I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what’s bad is good, and what’s good is ‘square.’ And the old, I would teach to pray, after me, ‘Our Father, which art in Washington …’

“And then I’d get organized. I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting, so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting. I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies and vice versa. I’d pedal narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

“If I were the devil I’d soon have families that war with themselves, churches at war with themselves, and nations at war with themselves; until each in its turn was consumed. And with promises of higher ratings I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flames. If I were the devil I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, but neglect to discipline emotions — just let those run wild, until before you knew it, you’d have to have drug sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

“Within a decade I’d have prisons overflowing, I’d have judges promoting pornography — soon I could evict God from the courthouse, then from the schoolhouse, and then from the houses of Congress. And in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and deify science. I would lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls, and church money. If I were the devil I’d make the symbols of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.

“If I were the devil I’d take from those who have, and give to those who wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. And what do you bet? I couldn’t get whole states to promote gambling as thee way to get rich? I would caution against extremes and hard work, in Patriotism, in moral conduct. I would convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging is more fun, that what you see on TV is the way to be. And thus I could undress you in public, and I could lure you into bed with diseases for which there is no cure. In other words, if I were the devil I’d just keep right on doing on what he’s doing.

"Paul Harvey, good day.”

Sounds spot on, doesn't it? And we really didn't listen, or if we did listen we didn't believe, or if we did believe we just let it happen.

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 KJV

Can You Live On $1.50 Per Day ???

I could never live on $1.50 per day (my life sustaining medications alone cost more than that), and I suspect that Bridget Moynahan really cannot either:

If you don't include your mansion, your utilities, your phone(s) and wifi, your car(s), your debt service, or your drugs you might be able to get close to or below $1.50, but isn't that being dishonest about the whole thing?

Someone Is Lying

Obama ad-Dajjal says he might arm Syrian rebels, while the rebels say they've already been armed:

And why are we training them to kill their prisoners?

I never met a Syrian rebel who lied, but everything I ever heard Obama ad-Dajjal say has turned out to be a lie.

Whom are you gonna believe?

The Beast Will Control Our Food Supply

Here is a very revealing report about draft EU legislation for the control of seeds:

Every single variety of vegetable will have to be registered on an EU list, otherwise it will be illegal to sell it. To be registered on the list, seed varieties have to pass a series of tests demonstrating what is called DUS ‘Distinctiveness, Uniformity and Stability’. It costs nearly £3000 to test & register just one single variety of seed for sale.

Does that remind you of some things?

At COGCON 0 - Commandeer all U.S. domestic resources including food and water.

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Revelation 13:17 KJV

Get ready, it's coming.

At Least One Group Loves ObamaDon'tCare Program

You guessed it - healthcare industry CEOs, whose pay keeps going up (median annual pay is $12.3 million):

Way to go, Obama ad-Dajjal !!!

Death By Plastic

Do you remember this piece of good advice?

Here's one I didn't see coming - melting Arctic ice will release killer amounts of plastic into the oceans:

Many scientists and activists have raised alarms over the massive amount of plastic waste building up in the world’s oceans. In the film “Midway,” documentary maker Chris Jordan showed how tens of thousands of baby albatrosses are dying – their bodies filled with plastic most likely from the Garbage Patch – on the Pacific atoll of Midway, one of the most remote islands on the planet. 

Increasing ice melt due to climate change will likely release the even-higher concentrations of plastic trapped in Arctic ice into the sea, and thus into the food chain, the new report in Earth’s Future said. 

“The environmental consequences of microplastic fragments are not fully understood, but they are clearly ingested by a wide range of marine organisms including commercially important species,” the report said.

The term “microplastics” refers to tiny particles created as plastic materials that break down but never biodegrade. They are being increasingly found on surface waters and shorelines around the world. 

Plastic materials are introduced to the ocean by various means, including from cosmetic ingredients known as microbeads, from the release of semi-synthetic fibers such as rayon from washing machines, and from larger discarded plastic items. The plastics reach the sea via sewers, rivers, and littering along coastlines or at sea.

Researchers said in the new report that Arctic ice contains such high concentrations of plastics because of the way sea ice forms. It concentrates particulates from the surrounding waters, and the particulates become trapped until the ice melts. Scientists said in the report that they found 38-234 plastic particles per cubic meter of ice in some parts of the Arctic areas they studied.

In the next decade the scientists predict that at least 2,000 trillion cubic meters of Arctic ice will melt. If that ice contains the lowest concentrations of microplastics reported in the study, this could result in the release of more than 1 trillion pieces of plastic, the report said.

I also suggest that you watch the short trailer from the film Midway. We humans have destroyed this planet, and even if we get CO2 emissions under control all life on the planet is still in great danger of dying out.

Update: By the way, some of the radioactive materials floating our way from Fukushima is likely to get caught in the Eastern Garbage Patch. It will no doubt be there for quite a while.

How NOT To Invest In America

Most of the activity in the stock market is by companies buying back their own stock with nearly free money borrowed from the Federal (sic) Reserve System. Here are the biggest culprits:

These are the companies that are the most aggressive repurchasers of their own stock, or said otherwise, the companies that have no organic use for the cash and have zero ideas how to grow their top and bottom line or what capital projects to invest their excess capital, they only have stock buybacks as an option to give the impression of “growth.”

There is no "recovery". It's all a Ponzi scheme fed by QE funny money, and the rest of the QE cash is being hidden offshore, so it doesn't benefit the US economy either:

America's Job Is Done In Afghanistan

Mission Accomplished ... Again

Moments ago Obama ad-Dajjal announced that America's job in Afghanistan is done. Heroin users and dealers around the world agree:

The huge decrease in 2001 was due to the efforts of the Taliban. Following the 9/11 false flag attacks, our troops quickly invaded Afghanistan to put opium cultivation back on track. Gee, do you suppose there's a connection there?

Additional US accomplishments in Afghanistan are discussed here:

Way to go, Obama ad-Dajjal !!!

Update: NYC is supplying its first responders with antidote for people who OD on heroin:

This is a great idea, but it begs the question "why is this necessary in the first place?"

But these moves to include more cops to treat overdoses onsite follows a perfect storm of trends that have converged to make heroin more and more the opiate of choice for a growing new demographic of users. 

No longer the stereotype of a shivering urban junkie, heroin users are now found among the working and professional classes, including suburban abusers of opiate-based painkillers like oxycodone. Faced with higher prices and shortages in the illegal market for pills, these now seek out what street users often refer to as “smack.”

Indeed, as the illicit use of painkillers has become more difficult with stricter regulations and law enforcement – which has led to a corresponding low supply and higher price, officials say – users have turned to heroin for a cheaper and more readily available high. And Mexican cartels, funneling heroin from Colombia, have been flooding the market with a purer and cheaper product.

And with its higher purity, users can now snort the drug, officials say, rather than cook and shoot it with needles – a well-known pop-cultural image that has scared away many first-time users in the past.

Hmmm ... opium is not grown in Colombia, it's grown in Afghanistan. NATO forces (i.e., the US and its puppets) therefore control the supply. Why then is heroin so plentiful, cheap, and pure in the US? Because of the Mexican cartels, or because its existence is necessary for the smooth functioning of the US narco-democracy?

What will the 9,800 US troops remaining in Afghanistan be doing? Maybe protecting the opium crop?

Of course !!! What could possibly be more important?

US Stupidity Angers Chinese

Not only are the Chinese retaliating against Microsoft, now IBM will feel their wrath:

The so-called diplomacy and law enforcement initiatives of Obama ad-Dajjal and his minions are in danger of completely wrecking what is left of the US economy.

Incompetence comes in many forms, and Obama ad-Dajjal seems to embody them all. Could we maybe impeach this clown before it's too late?

Fighting Terrorism In Africa ???

According to this report in The New York Times, you and I are paying to train "elite antiterror troops" in Africa:

The correct terminology is "death squads".

China does business deals with Africa. The US trains death squads.

And Eduardo Galeano has disavowed The Open Veins of Latin America?

Why? So he can write The Open Veins of Africa?

What Broke Washington ???

Here is a very provocative opinion piece in The Washington Post:

Toppling this paralyzed system requires not reforms here or there but a heave-ho. Wherever you think the United States needs to go, we can’t get there from here. Let’s stop beating our heads against the wall. Our government is failing not because of bad policies but because of flawed institutional design. No one is allowed to take responsibility.

Sooner or later, this system will collapse. It’s time to form a movement to rebuild this broken structure.

What he basically is saying that we need a Savior.

According to Barbara Walters, that's what Obama ad-Dajjal was supposed to be:

That's what the German people thought they were getting when they voted for Hitler.

And that's what many Americans will do in the 2016 election ... but instead of a Messiah we're very likely to get just another Führer.

Accidentally Outing CIA ???

What kind of baloney is this? The White House "accidentally" outed a top CIA agent?

When someone (allegedly Scooter Libby?) outed Valerie Plame, it was a big deal. Why do Obama ad-Dajjal and his minions get yet another free pass from the MSM for doing the same thing?

Because their faux pas allegedly was due to stupidity while Bush's allegedly was intentional?

In spite of all the hype about Obama ad-Dajjal being smarter than Dubya, the results prove otherwise.

10 Myths About The Financial Crisis

Scan this report down to the section under the heading "Truth about the Financial Crisis" for a list of 10 myths, mainly about the housing component of the crisis:

It takes a while to read, but it should help you understand how both the government and the MSM distorted our perceptions before, during, and after the crisis ... if we can even say there was an "after" (and not just a calm before the next storm).

When a "regulated" industry captures its regulators and controls most of the aspects of public discussion of its affairs, it can get away with anything. Our protection against this is supposed to be a vigilant executive branch and investigative journalists, but apparently neither of these exists any more.

Just Following Orders

Large-scale evil requires surrender of autonomy, coercion by a central authority and a willingness to follow orders.

There is evil, and then there's organized evil. This is a memorial outside the village where my brother lives in the south of France. It is a typical village, quite small, perhaps a few hundred residents. The memorial commemorates three young French civilians who were taken out and shot by Nazi soldiers, either for "crimes" of resistance or perhaps as a "lesson" to the restive civilian populace.

The German soldiers who pulled the triggers were of course "just following orders."

Nazis accused of war crimes said it at Nuremberg — “I was only following orders.”  Soldiers like Lt. William Calley accused of atrocities at My Lai in Vietnam tried it, too.

And now, lawyers for some of the Army reservists charged with abusing prisoners in Iraq say they’re innocent for the same reason.  According to Gary Myers, “He did attempt to find out if what he was doing was correct, and he was told that it was.”

Myers represents Staff Sgt. Ivan “Chip” Frederick, who is accused of mistreating and assaulting Iraqi prisoners.

In fact, military law has long recognized that following orders is a legitimate defense — but not if an order was illegal or if “a person of ordinary sense and understanding would have known it was illegal.”

So what should a soldier do when in doubt?  Military courts have said they should assume orders are legal and follow them.

And defense lawyers say that’s what the accused soldiers did at Abu Ghraib prison.

And our sons and daughters continue to "just follow orders" at Guantanamo Bay, Bagram Airfield, and all the black sites at which they are "honor bound to defend freedom" with vicious enthusiasm.

I am starting to believe that an American soldier "of ordinary sense and understanding" no longer knows what's legal and what isn't. Clearly his Commander-in-Chief, allegedly a graduate of Harvard Law School, doesn't know the difference ... so how can GI Joe be expected to know?

I don't say this to excuse any of their behavior; I state it because it is a fact with which we should be dealing but are not.

War Does Not Make Us Free

Here are some things to ponder on this Memorial Day 2014:

The conclusion is unavoidable that America’s wars have not protected our liberty but, instead, destroyed liberty. As Alexander Solzhenitsyn said, “A state of war only serves as an excuse for domestic tyranny.”

The truth is hard to bear, but the facts are clear. America’s wars have been fought in order to advance Washington’s power, the profits of bankers and armaments industries, and the fortunes of US companies. Marine General Smedley Butler said, “ I served in all commissioned ranks from a second Lieutenant to a Major General. And during that time, I spent most of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street, and for the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism.”

I am no hero, but I've been to war. At the time I would have killed anyone they told me to, but I don't think now that anything I did then contributed in the least to maintaining our freedom. Similar to MG Butler, I was a low-class muscle man for bankgangsters, corporations, and their accomplices in the one percent.

Never again.

Best And Worst Investment Strategies In 2014

Best ... gold.

Worst ... hedge funds.

I guess that's why hedge fund managers are paid so much (or maybe not):

And I also guess that's why China, Russia, and India are buying so much gold, while America is putting so much money into our overinflated stock market:
