Remember when the country first elected Obama? Remember the collective sigh of relief as he spoke of returning the country to its former glory? Remember when we all thought he was going to end the neo-con overthrow of our government and country?

And remember when we all realized he had simply picked up where the Bush/Cheney Crime Syndicate left off and added some new twists of his own?

Remember how sick at your stomach you felt when you realized that Obama was Bush on steroids?

That’s kind of the same feeling too many of us out here have today. This wasn’t a mandate for Republicans although they are trying to sell it as if it was. It was a rejection of the corruption, the anti-American mind-set in the District of Criminals. And we had only two choices.

______________________________________________

34192_1thThere are few out here in the general public, regardless of supposed party affiliation, expressing any sense of celebration or excitement over last night’s election returns. We simply swapped one faction of the one-party system for the other. Most agree that nothing is going change other than the way the pre-planned agenda will be implemented.

Absent from any debates, if you could call the public displays put on by candidates on both sides a debate of any kind, was any discussion of the illegal and unwarranted spying by NSA and multiple other spy agencies operating without oversight.

No one mentioned or even discussed casually, the militarization of law enforcement against the public at large. Not one candidate mentioned the military tanks, the grenade launchers, assault rifles, SWAT gear, and other military weapons that local law enforcement is now arming themselves with for use on the very communities that employ them. Equipment that was paid for with taxpayer money or borrowed in the name of the People and produced so excessively that there was enough equipment to sell to other countries, to arm our own military and to arm local law enforcement against us.

Voting…An Exersize in futility?

“Was it Snowden for revealing the insidious activity of this NSA? Or were the traitors actually those who ordered the spying? Maybe it was those who sat at their desks and did the actual spying, or those who wrote the programming that facilitated the spying. I contend that it was not Snowden who betrayed us; it was the NSA and its 55,000 employee’s (conservative estimate) who made the decision that our constitutional rights mattered not….after all, they work for the government!”

Here we go again. If we can just get the Democrats (Republicans) out of office and putthFLBPYT2F the Republicans (Democrats) in, everything will be better. I have to wonder just how many times we will buy this same old song and dance before we admit that regardless of whom we vote for, regardless of which party they originate from, the flight plan doesn’t change.

So, what is it we expect to be different? More

Existing as an Political Atheist

When we cannot believe anything that comes from our elected officials; when lies are accepted and expected from the same and are considered par for the course, it may be time to reassess who we are and what we are willing to endure in the way of political candidates.”

____________________________________________________

Most of us have dispensed with the fictional divisions of party lines, having concluded that the lies and egregious conduct occurs with regularity in both factions of the one party system that exists in the District of Criminals.  While some seem to think referring to Washington D.C. in this manner is disrespectful, I disagree.

Our Constitution, or what is left of it, and many of our common laws are violated, struck down, and1506053_573371442759085_1751992908_n otherwise unlawfully tampered with by the very same people who swore to uphold them. (Is this not an criminal act?)  Anyway, that was the deal, right? Yet, everyday we see those same officials disregard the Constitution, break the common laws, profit from selling their office and votes to some corporation, or in any number of ways violate the very tenets of their office.  What happened to those promises made before election?  And why are we so willing to accept the deception and the ongoing betrayal’s of the public?

When we allow ourselves to be defined and labeled as right or left, conservative or liberal, have we not boxed ourselves in?  Have we not limited our own opinions, beliefs, and our right to reach our own conclusions?  And how many of us in an attempt to cement and secure our position as either right or left, sit quietly when we are exposed to ideas, plans and other constructs that do not resonate with us depending on our political leanings?

The U.S.: No longer a free Republic

We are supposed to have a Republic.  Of course we are supposed to be free, also.

The same people and organizations who have historically controlled government policy are the very same people who profit from its expansion.  Government policy is not dictated by need, but rather, by greed.  It is the greed of the few who make miserable the lives of the many.

There is little, if anything at all, that has issued from the District of Criminals that has not adversely affected the general population while conversely benefiting a select few.  All of it cloaked behind the phrase “national security” and the chronic threats of attacks from unidentified and most times literally, unidentifiable sources. If these can’t be found to any extent, they are created by agencies 1005866_420996051347801_254613252_nsuch as the FBI and CIA and paraded in front of the public as if they were real threats.

False Flags:

False flag operations are covert operations
conducted by   governments, corporations, or other organizations, which
are designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations
appear   as if they are being carried out by other entities. The name is
derived from the   military concept of flying false colors; that is,
flying the flag of a country   other than one’s own. False flag
operations are not limited to war and   counter-insurgency operations,
and have been used in peace-time; for example, during Italy’s strategy of tension.

This would appear to be the proverbial case of dangling something bright and shiny in front of the eyes (in this case “foreign terrorists”) to divert you from the real threat festering in clear view, of anyone daring to actually look at who the real terrorists are.  We know them; we elected them.

The national security shell game

I have spoken often to the fact that the crux of the overly used phrase “national security” has nothing to do with the collective public.  It is a system of propaganda, false flag attacks, wars of aggression waged to steal another country’s assets and exists to serve the interest and protection of those who created it.  National Security is not predicated upon keeping the country safe from terrorists or harm, but to keep those who promote this ideology safe from us, the public.

You can’t defend freedom by eliminating freedom

“As a country we have been attacked and overtaken.  It was not a foreign terrorist who took us down; it was the enemies inside the gates that proliferated in the District of Criminals.”

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

You can’t defend freedom by eliminating freedom, or by terrorizing your own country.

This is not the America I grew up in.  Maybe it never was what I had believed it to be.  Regardless, what is before us now as a nation, is the growing police state complete with total surveillance and the targeting of any individual as a possible “domestic terrorist” for expressing their own thoughts, for rejecting government policies that are meant to limit or eradicate any freedom we may have had.

The 9/11 Decade and the Decline of U.S. Democracy

The Bush Administration created the “war on terror” paradigm not to protect us from future attack, although that was what they claimed, but rather to put in place a radical expansion of power that sought to place the president outside domestic and international law.

A perusal of the laws passed by congress and presidents many of which are a direct attack on10-1-2013-10-25-59-am freedom and liberty, do not affect terrorists in the least.  These laws, all passed with the caveat that it was necessary if they were to keep us safe, affect no one but US citizens.  They have no bearing on terrorism and are only the excuse being used to keep you quiet as they continue limiting your freedom and expanding the federal corporation.

One of the greatest freedoms we had, was the freedom to be left alone by government.  The NSA spy grid and the massive data collection center in Utah are the official end to any pretense of privacy.  We have a government populated by people who have in essence, declared war on the country as a whole.  Just because they have not yet opened fire on us, does not mean they do not consider us their sworn enemies or, that they would not move immediately to wipe us off the face of the earth should we become too insistent on our freedom.  Nevertheless, we do insist on preserving our freedom wherever and whenever possible.

Government Hypocrisy Preceeding Attack on Syria

You won’t hear anyone say the word, war.

This parsing of words, this come-to-be expected word weaseling is nothing new.  Kerry, Dempsey, the President and every Senator never uttered the word “war” which would require the consent of congress to wage.   The refraining from using this word and instead referring to the war plans for Syria  as a “strike, intervention or action”, is what the President is relying on to by-pass congress and the Constitution. As long as no one dares call it a war, there appears to be no need for the President to get congress’s consent.

________________________________________________________________________________________

As the country rises up and resoundingly rejects any action of any kind in Syria, the propaganda is running knee deep in the District of Criminals.  Because of the decades long stream of what has turned out to be faulty “intelligence”, outright lies about whatever fictional threat they were using to to attack another nation in order to seize their assets (oil) and to depose one government after another only to install a government more to our liking, we are faced with another needless war.

The US Senate is meeting and discussing how and why they intend to start another senseless war, this time in Syria.  The pretentiousness of these discussions borders on the absurd and is an insult to the intelligence of America.  Continually citing “intelligence”, human, satellite and other methods of savespying, Senator’s Menendez and Corker are followed by the new Secretary of State, John Kerry, among others.  Each of them attempting to somehow tie the civil war in Syria to the national security of the United States.  This will last for hours of course, due to the fact that there is no connection. This makes the argument particularly tedious.

Among the weakest arguments heard over the last several days; “It would make us appear weak”.  Well now, if ever there was an argument for bombing and terrorizing another nation on the other side of the globe, it would have to be our big giant national ego.  Apparently, our government believes that the Syrian people are not terrorized quite enough as a result of internal turmoil and the proper response to this would be to create more turmoil, more terror and to destroy everything in sight along with “collateral” damage.  This means men, women AND children will be unilaterally harmed or killed by our actions.

Supposedly vast intelligence exists to indicate that a chemical attack actually took place.  This intelligence came from the same sources who supplied the intelligence for the Iraq war.  You remember…….the evidence that never was?

Collateral damage in Syria is said to be deemed to be “low” in this instance.  So,.. what?  So are we going to accept 5,000 men, women and children being killed by us?  10,000?  20,000?  What’s the magic number?

IF I understand this correctly, gassing people is a big problem, but blowing them up along with their entire community so that you can overthrow their government and seize their national assets, is not. More
