Abby Martin talks about Pentagon officials refusing to recognize that any civilians have been killed in the US’ campaign against ISIS in Iraq and Syria. This is just the latest example of nonsensical foreign policy being employed in the Middle East.
“Do you believe that computers and robot factories will define the years to come? Maybe you have failed to notice that the US electric grid is decrepit and in need of at least a $1 trillion upgrade-and-rebuild, which, by the way, is not going to happen. What is all that crap going to run on?” – J Kunstler
The more detached from reality American culture becomes the more strictly ceremonial leadership gets, as illustrated by the raft of bromides Barack Obama floated past the assembled vassalage of government last week in another grand effort to avoid the necessities of the moment.
Those necessities include freeing a hostage public from the tyrannical clutches of corporate despotism — the evil empire of big boxes, big burgers, big pharma, Big Brother — and the atrocious rackets fostered by them that masquerade as an economy. The template of the life we have known is broken and the pieces within are flying apart, and no amount of wishing or promising can keep them going. If this society is even going to survive, the people have to smash their way out of this template prison, probably against the efforts of the people and organizations now running it merely for their own benefit.
The future is telling us very clearly: get smaller, get finer, get more local, get less complex, get less grandiose, do it now. Do you want to eat food in the years ahead? Better make sure you live in a part of the country where small-scale farming and backyard gardening is possible because the General Mills Agri-Biz GMO Cheerios model will be folding its big tent along with its financing agents in the debt Ponzi banking system.

“Financial expert Catherine Austin Fitts says the world is changing through crime by our leaders. Fitts contends, “We are dealing with a lawlessness that is happening with the build out of the global systems, which is very ugly” – G Hunter
If you look at what has happened to the Ukraine, so far, over a million people have lost their homes. That’s pretty lawless. The fighting is getting very, very painful. The other thing you have is as people see a power vacuum and the lawlessness of the leaders, they say hey let’s be lawless too. It translates all the way down into our communities. The lawlessness of drug dealing and organized crime is enormous, and it’s happening globally. . . . For markets to function, they require trust in the rule of law. We’ve seen the breakdown in the rule of law.” Continue reading
It seems as though the unfolding paedophile scandal connected to Bill Clinton may be delaying… or even preventing… a presidential run announcement by Hillary Clinton, which by all accounts would have been upon us.
Think about… where is the much anticipated “Ready for Hillary” officially-in moment?
I don’t want; I’ll never be ready; but by all accounts, it would have been here by now.
Something is up.
Muckraker Wayne Madsen reported: Democratic frontrunner for her party’s presidential nomination, Hillary Clinton, is reportedly “furious” with her husband Bill Clinton for his involvement in the scandal.
Mrs. Clinton’s early political life was dominated by her commitment to the rights of children. It will all but destroy Mrs. Clinton’s presidential hopes if her husband’s involvement in the Epstein sex slave ring are proven
There’s much more what that came from…
U.S. Congress Considers Appointing Netanyahu Emperor of the Republic for Life
Admittedly the title herein is a bit inflammatory but its meant to highlight a very serious fact that the Speaker of our House John Boehner has invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to lecture We-The-People on foreign policy as it relates to our U.S. Presidents Iran policy on February 11.
It should be a huge event. I hear he’s invited all the networks to play it live for We-The-People so that Bibi can promote his own Foreign Policy against the official U.S. position at the White House which may be in direct violation of The Logan Act
The Logan Act is a United States federal law that forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments. It was passed in 1799 and last amended in 1994. Violation of the Logan Act is a felony, punishable under federal law with imprisonment of up to three years.
The Act was intended to prohibit United States citizens without authority from interfering in relations between the United States and foreign governments.
At this time, to the best of our knowledge Bibi may have received American citizenship during his study years at MIT and has never renounced it. We tried to confirm this information but neither his office or the U.S. government will confirm or deny! Continue reading

“The Obama stratagem really clatters on the stairway. One step at a time, sweet tyranny, that’s all we’re asking from you.” – R Clifford
“Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.” — Henry Kissinger (Nobel Peace Prize, 1975)
If a government can expand their power over the governed with such as The Patriot Act, National Defense Authorization Act, Department of Homeland Security, ,Federal Emergency Management Agency…there’s Dr. Kissinger’s aphrodisia—the Psychopathic Power Rush (PPR).
Heroin, power, cocaine, methamphetamine…“hard” drugs demand ever-increasing doses to keep the rush satisfying. Regarding the PPR, all questions lead to: How brutally can government tyrannize, how far can they push before sufficient numbers of the governed realize whose interests government actually serves? The governed are, at the very best, unsecured creditors, last in line. Banks, that’s whose interests are not only at the front of the line, banks own the line. Very little trickles past banks to serve interests behind theirs because government works for those who have a monopoly on creating “money” from nothing.
Regarding the question of how far the governed can be tyrannized before actually protecting themselves; historically, that question has sometimes been answered by: Revolution. But let’s not get hasty, tyranny has so many tentacles. And Napoleon Bonaparte might tell you: “History is a set of lies agreed upon.”
One part of history not a set of lies….
In 1787, Alexander Tyler of the University of Edinborough wrote that all democracies go through eight stages, two hundred years being the average cycle time. The stages are: Continue reading
Barrett Brown, Kathy Kelly, and Bonny Mahoney are the kind of people who are imprisoned in America. It is not the perjurers and liars, the torturers, war criminals and mass murderers. It is the good people who peacefully protest the crimes of those who control the US government and its policies.
Since around 1990 I have studied and reported on cases that have resulted in the erosion of the protective features in law that made law a shield of the people instead of a weapon in the hands of the government. Barrett Brown’s statement to the Judge in his show trial shows that the US Department of Justice has been successful in preventing the system from delivering any justice. The US Court system delivers support for the government’s crimes. That’s it.
Brown’s statement shows how the system works. The government brings false charges against you or they bring charges that are not illegal under law as understood. However, prosecutors invent new interpretations of laws and judges and juries accept legislation-by-prosecutor-to-fit-the-made-up-case. Almost never is a jury involved, not that jurors show any inclination to go against the government’s case. However, prosecutors only face that unlikely risk in 3 or 4 percent of the cases. All other cases are settled on the basis of self-incrimination. The prosecutor tells the defendant and his attorney, “you can admit to this and that and have a sentence of 5 or 10 years. Otherwise, we are indicting you with 105 offenses with imprisonment of at least one lifetime.
Read Brown’s statement to the judge. This young man describes perfectly how the so-called “criminal justice system” actually works. I have seen it time after time in cases I have investigated. Read The Tyranny of Good Intentions.
