Jon Rappoport ~ Obama And The State Of The Onion Address

JonRappoport  January 28 2014

Apparently, the President had ingested some kind of weird drug, because when he stepped to the podium he didn’t look at the teleprompter. He just started talking.

“…like every other recent President, when I take to this platform I’m expected to tell a certain number of lies dressed up as the truth. And believe me, folks, I had a few whoppers ready to go.

“But now I feel like doing something else. I’m not going to delve into the many scandals of my administration, because examining them and taking them apart and exposing the lies would keep us here all night and into tomorrow.

“Instead, I just want to explain my overarching agenda. It’s the same agenda every modern President has fronted for. I’m not really doing anything new. That’s a myth.

“You see, in order to become President in the first place, I had to sign on to the scheme to debase, throttle, and weaken this country. I have my methods. Every President has his own.

“Weakening America is part and parcel of Globalism. Ultimately, America will not the lead the way into what has been called the New World Order. International heavy hitters, bankers, and corporations will carry that ball. America will go along, with its population of sleeping masses.

“So-called Pax Americanus, or imperial American empire, has been shelved, in favor of a much larger operation. Continue reading

Richard (RJ) Eskow ~ A Congress Of The Wealthy, By The Wealthy, And For The Wealthy

When the President of the United States delivers his State of the Union message next week, he’ll be speaking to the wealthiest Congress in history. What does it mean for a representative democracy when most of its representatives are insulated from the real-world economic experiences of its citizens?

A new report from Open Secrets shows that, for the first time, the average member of Congress is worth more than $1 million. It’s hard to say how much more, because the House has adopted the Senate’s less stringent financial reporting requirements, but most representatives are, as they used to say back home, “pretty well fixed.” More than half of them are worth more than $1 million, according to Open Secrets.

Some members of Congress aren’t wealthy, of course. But if the President sticks with his recent theme of inequality next week, he’ll be doing it in front of an audience that has disproportionately benefited from the very phenomenon he’ll be describing. Some reports say that the president may ask for an extension of unemployment benefits, too. If so, he’ll be proposing it to a room full of people who are unlikely to ever feel unemployment’s anguish and terror themselves.

Catherine J. Frompovich ~ The Assumed Powers of Any U.S. President: What Are We to Do?

Activist Post December 26 2013

Recently this writer came across a YouTube which discusses some unimaginable circumstances and actions that the voiceover claims are little-known, but apparently imminent in the United States. The actions as discussed, unfortunately, result from Presidential Executive Orders (PEOs), which were designed to and supposedly will take away: our rights as citizens, our cars, food and farms, healthcare and welfare services, and relocate us to relocation centers at the federal government’s whim plus, there are PEOs that give FEMA control and powers Congress cannot do anything about for at least six months and which affect supposedly free persons in the United States of America.

In that YouTube, the PEOs that are of concern to the voice-over are listed below. In checking out which president of the U.S. issued them, I find that President John F Kennedy issued most. One has to wonder why such extreme dictatorial measures were self-assumed and consequently placed into what may become future presidents’ armamentaria for despotism and one-man rule. No president seems exempt from being capable to proclaim and implement dictatorial powers or invoke those as granted by former presidents in preceding PEOs, or those issued in the future.

Stephen Lendman ~ The Chemical Weapons Hoax

SteveLendmanBlog June 16 2013

Greater US intervention in Syria looms. Manufactured threats facilitate doing so. Replacing Assad with puppet leadership is planned. Independent governments aren’t tolerated. More on that below.

Fact: Washington bears full responsibility for Middle East/North Africa/Central Asian wars. Resource control is prioritized. So is imperial dominance to Russian and Chinese borders.

Fact: State terrorism is official US policy. Obama’s waging multiple direct and proxy wars. He’s doing so lawlessly. He’s ravaging humanity in the process.

Washington, its allies, and proxies use chemical and other illegal weapons. Permanent wars reflect longstanding US policy. Americans are deceived and lied to. Truth is verboten.

Unchallenged global dominance is sought. Washington demands total subservience. What we say goes is policy. All independent governments are targeted.

Plans call for installing subservient puppet regimes. Direct intervention in Syria looms. War on Iran is planned. Lebanon is targeted. So are other countries.

America and Israel are imperial partners. Both countries wage war on Syria. They actively arm Al Qaeda and Al Nusra fighters. Both groups are designated terrorist organizations.

They’re supplied chemical and other lethal weapons. They’re trained in their use. Pentagon contractors and US special forces are involved. So are CIA operatives. Training occurs in Turkey and Jordan. Perhaps in Israel.

Israeli forces are mobilized near Syria’s border. Libya 2.0 looms. Regional conflict is possible. So is WW III.

Fact: Alleging Syrian chemical weapons use replicates fabricated claims about Saddam’s nonexistent WMDs. It’s similar to false charges against all US enemies.

Big Lies launch wars. They’re pretexts for planned aggression. Repetition gets people to believe them. Manipulative deception is standard practice. False flags are commonly used.

Mike Harris ~ ‘Two-Party System An Illusion, Both Funded From Same Source’ [Video]

 | November 5 2012 | Thanks, Minty

Almost 30 million Americans have already cast their votes for President, queuing for hours at early polling stations across the country. Although too soon to tell which way the vote is swinging, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are locked together according to most polls. But lost in the rivalry between Republican and Democrat, are the alternatives that many Americans have longed for.

For perspective on what the third party candidates have to offer, RT talks to Mike Harris, managing director of AMT Capital Partners.

Greg Hunter ~ Weekly News Wrap-Up 3.9.12

USA Watchdog | March 9 2012

The big story was the meeting between the Prime Minister of Israel and the President of the United States on Monday.  Netanyahu told Obama in no uncertain terms that he was tired of waiting to attack Iran over its nuclear program.  Iran has said repeatedly it is for the peaceful production of energy, but Israel is not buying it.  Netanyahu did not announce it would attack but, also, did not mention a word of letting the sanctions work or diplomacy.  I think this was a very dark omen, and in my mind, Netanyahu was publicly putting the President on notice that an attack is going to be launched.  It has, also, been reported that Israel was requesting bunker buster bombs among other military hardware needed to carry out an attack.  (For more on the story, please click here and here.)

The Greek debt deal looks like it’s going to get done, but will it trip credit default swaps?  Is this deal really done?  What’s the possible fallout?  Who knows, but the European sovereign debt crisis is far from over.
