“This is true whether you’re talking about taxpayers being forced to fund high-priced weaponry that will be used against us, endless wars that do little for our safety or our freedoms, or bloated government agencies such as the National Security Agency with its secret budgets, covert agendas and clandestine activities. Rubbing salt in the wound, even monetary awards in lawsuits against government officials who are found guilty of wrongdoing are paid by the taxpayer.”

Duty to Warn

The CIA owns everyone of any significance in the major media…We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American people believe is false.” – William Colby, Ronald Reagan’s Director of the CIA (1981)

The US government’s disinformation campaign to shape the public’s view of important historical events never stops. Propaganda, disinformation and dirty tricks have been part of America even before certain colonial ruling elite’s pretended that the Pilgrims were being nice to – rather than plotting genocide against – the indigenous people at the mythical ”First Thanksgiving”. The “nice” Pilgrims were actually theologically-fascistic witch-believers who regarded the indigenous people as satanic sub-humans whose land could be stolen from them and whose women and children could be massacred with God’s blessings. These so-called Christians sincerely believed that the souls of the native American “subhumans” that had occupied America for 10,000 years could only be “saved” from eternal damnation by being forcibly baptized against their wills into the Christian religion. Sugar-coating the Pilgrim’s decidedly un-Christ-like natures was good for the image of the new nation whose economy would soon be built on the satanic enslavement of other equally” sub-human” black Africans who were about to be kidnapped, cruelly transported from their native lands and then bought and sold in the mythical “land of the free and the brave”.

Many of the widely-accepted myths about our allegedly “honorable” racist ancestors have intentionally obscured the fact that the vast majority of America’s proud slave-owning Founding Fathers were greedy for power and wealth. And yet these and similar myths about the goodness of America’s ruling classes continue to be knowingly taught to grade school students up to the present moment. More

Obama’s Farewell Tears Are an Insult, His Record is Soaked in Blood

Obama’s Farewell Tears Are an Insult, His Record is Soaked in Blood By John Wight

Do not be fooled by the tears and gushing words of Obama and his supporters as he counts down to his departure from the White House. They are an insult when measured against the tears of the countless Libyans, Syrians, Afghans and others who have suffered as a result of a foreign policy that brought his administration into disrepute.

Barack Obama goes down in history as a president who more than any other in living memory entered the White House on a wave of hope and expectation, only to depart eight years and two terms later under a cloud of crushing disappointment and bitterness.
In speech after speech, America’s first black president outlined a vision of his country’s place in the world that would embrace multilateralism, place a premium on diplomacy, and embrace a foreign…

The “Bad Actor” Buzzword

Submitted by R.F. Goggin on April 19, 2012

________________________________________________________________

There’s a new convenient buzzword being bandied about, quite a bit lately, by people who seem hell-bent on usurping the protections offered to Americans by the U.S. Constitution. I am speaking of a term ‘Bad Actor’, which I seem to be hearing more and more from politicians or public safety officials, these days. Sounds an evil and threatening prospect, doesn’t it?

Yes indeed it does to me, at least, and that’s surely because it’s supposed to unnerve and scare somebody just like myself, and you as well, of course. It’s a slogan-like soundbite beginning to bubble around seemingly everywhere in the mainstream media to make you think that you are being protected by some big brother operative in the guise of ‘Uncle Sam’.   The problem, however, it seems to me, with such a broad and indiscriminate label or classification is that even if one were to look up the definition of these two words in conjunction with one-another, they would discover that any such distinction were it to be imposed upon a U.S. Citizen, does not necessarily allude to criminal behavior at all, or moreover, to some terrorist design or intention.   Hell, ‘Bad Actor’ could simply be slapped upon someone who is having a bad day.

With only a preliminary examination of the term in question for the purpose of this article, one on-line dictionary, defines Bad Actor as follows :

  •  1. A mean, ill-tempered, troublemaking, or evil person.   While another, comes up as:
  •  1. One that consistently behaves or reacts poorly.

Let’s assume for the sake of argument that you were a student riding a city bus to school in Houston, Texas, and some TSA official approached you while in transit and demanded to have a look in your backpack for no apparent reason whatsoever (yes, such outrageous things have now arrived, and will increasingly become commonplace in the United States). And let us also suppose, that this government someone or other – invading your privacy and harassing you as such, made you feel as though you were being violated? Which, in turn, compelled you to complain passionately or indignantly; or even to refuse to comply with the procedure? More

Note To Eric Holder: Murder Is Illegal

by R.F. Goggin /Contributing Author

(NWR) – After reading only a few excerpts of a recent speech by the U.S. Attorney General at Northwestern University law school in Chicago, I find myself at odds with his justifications of the murder of Anwar al-Awlaki (an American citizen), five months ago – via a drone strike by the U.S. Government.

What struck me as being most outrageous and uncomfortable about Holder, was his stating:

“The Constitution guarantees due process, not judicial process..”

The problem for me with the above statement, even if one doesn’t consider how the Attorney General chose to hair-split the words of the U.S. Constitution, is that ‘due process’ or any legal process for that matter, was not in fact exercised in this case by the Obama administration. And since it is that Congress has not yet to my knowledge declared war on the country of Yemen, then what any fair-minded American must conclude actually took place in this instance was the absolute assassination of an individual of which the Constitution of United States had undoubtedly granted protection to.

According to Webster’s dictionary, ‘due process’ is defined:

1
: a course of formal proceedings (as legal proceedings) carried out regularly and in accordance with established rules and principles —called also procedural due process
2
: a judicial requirement that enacted laws may not contain provisions that result in the unfair, arbitrary, or unreasonable treatment of an individual —called also substantive due process More

Blair: US Govt Can Kill Citizens Overseas as Part of ‘Defined Policy’

Director of National Intelligence Tells Congress Americans Can Be Killed Overseas

by Jason Ditz, February 03, 2010

Blair said the comments were intended to “reassure” Americans that there was a “set of defined policy and legal procedures” in place and that such assassinations are always carried out by the book.

Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R – MI) inquired about the procedures involved, asking what the legal framework was under which Americans could be killed by the intelligence community.

Blair insisted that under no circumstances would Americans be assassinated overseas for criticizing the government, adding “we don’t target people for free speech.” Rather they are subject to assassination when the government decides they are a threat and when they “get specific permission.” Exactly who was giving that permission was unclear.

The question has been increasingly important as the Obama Administration attempts to help the Yemeni government assassinate Anwar al-Awlaki, a US-born cleric who is not accused of any crimes by the US government. The administration maintains that secret evidence exists linking Awlaki to terrorism.

There seems to be a chilling lack of oversight in the procedure behind these killings, however, Blair’s assurances against politically motivated assassinations aside. The US has killed Americans in overseas attacks before, but only as “collateral damage.” It has never admitted to explicitly assassinating an American citizen before, though it seems that the policy is in place and such killings are only a matter of time.

U.S. national security threatened by Mexican Drug Cartels

Leave a comment

michaelweb_45055_2009-04-17%2015-32-24_531By Michael Webster: Syndicated Investigative Reporter. July 14, 2009 at 4:30 PM PDT

A dozen bound and tortured bodies were discovered dumped on the side of a remote highway in Michoacán. Police found the latest victims of the ongoing battle between rival drug traffickers on Monday. A threatening message was located near the beaten bodies of 11 men and one woman piled up and wrapped in a tarp, police revealed at the scene. Sadly, this has become a frequent occurrence: Last week, police found four bodies and a menacing note in the same spot.

Despite thousands of Mexican troops dispatched to numerous drug hot spots throughout the country, bloodshed has not decreased. U.S. authorities have offered a helping hand, pledging $1.4 billion through the Merida initiative in an attempt to help Mexico combat the cartels.

This reoccurring brutality stems from opposing drug cartels fighting over cocaine smuggling routes running up from Central America into the United States, the world’s top drug consumer. Because Mexico’s drug trade has become a very lucrative business—pulling in billions a year—having control of these routes ensures a hand in that money. More
