Aircraft Carrier CVN-77 Parks Next Door To Syria

Yesterday we reported that the Arab League (with European and US support) are preparing to institute a no fly zone over Syria. Today, we get an escalation which confirms we may be on the edge. Just out from CBS: “The U.S. Embassy in Damascus urged its citizens in Syria to depart “immediately,” and Turkey‘s foreign ministry urged Turkish pilgrims to opt for flights to return home from Saudi Arabia to avoid traveling through Syria.” But probably the most damning evidence that the “western world” is about to do the unthinkable and invade Syria, and in the process force Iran to retaliate, is the weekly naval update from Stratfor, which always has some very interesting if always controversial view on geopolitics, where we find that for the first time in many months, CVN 77 George H.W. Bush has left its traditional theater of operations just off the Straits of Hormuz, a critical choke point, where it traditionally accompanies the Stennis, and has parked… right next to Syria.

And from CBS:

Richard Nixon infamously declined make-up when he debated against John F Kennedy in September 1960. Recovering from a bout of flu and dressed in a pale grey suit, the favourite underwhelmed – and his unusually lacklustre appearance was blamed.

Fast forward 51 years and make-up may be the downfall, once again, of a presidential hopeful.

In a memo, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said he would direct his agency to “take no further action to develop or implement” the draft. U.S. News & World Report posted a copy of the memo on its website.

Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, as Freud supposedly said, but when is a cigarette a cigarette?

The city filed suit last week against a “roll your own” cigarette shop in Chinatown and a related one on Staten Island, where a pack of cigarettes can cost less than $5, because the stores are not collecting cigarette taxes. The stores, both called Island Smokes, do not sell packs of Marlboros and Newports. Instead, they sell loose tobacco and cigarette papers, and have machines that let customers fabricate their own cigarettes.

Are we to thank God – or government – for the gifts we receive?

November 1621: Governor Obama of Plymouth Colony prepares for the first Thanksgiving with his scribe, the boy Jay.

“How are preparations for our Thanksgiving Day feast proceeding, young Jay? I am eager to share the blessings wrought by hope and change, and the bounty that I have brought to this needy land and its humble yet dignified people.”

“Yes, Governor, about the feast. I’m afraid we don’t have much in the way of food.”

“But I decreed a feast.”

“Yes, I remember the speech. One of your best.”

“And we have just been through Recovery Summer. Vice Governor Biden spoke at length about it.”

“At great length, yes, sir.”

Industrial Policy: Not only do taxpayers subsidize failing green energy here, they may soon be on the hook for a Department of Energy loan to a firm owned by a Russian billionaire. Just say nyet.

When a foreign firm wants to build a facility in the U.S. that hires American workers and pays American taxes, we welcome it. We’d prefer they do it with their own money, not rely on this administration’s failed industrial policy to provide them with a huge taxpayer-backed loan — especially when it’s owned by a billionaire who doesn’t need the help.

My wife and I just watched a History Channel show, “After Oil.” It is one of the most unintentionally funny shows we have seen in a long time.

The premise is that, one day, all the undrilled oil in the world vansihes. Not used up, just vanished. Perhaps it has a temper tantrum; perhaps it is just out of town on a trip. Perhaps it has been stolen by aliens. However, this fantasy is to be taken seriously.

Business owner scrutinized by Secret Service.

Thanks to Obama’s economic policies, a west Georgia business owner says he isn’t hiring until the current President is gone.

Jon Shirek of News Channel 11 writes that Bill Looman of U.S. Cranes, LLC, is causing controversy over signs he posted on his company’s trucks.

“New Company Policy: We are not hiring until Obama is gone,” the signs read.

“Can’t afford it,” Looman said Tuesday.

“I’ve got people that I want to hire now, but I just can’t afford it. And I don’t foresee that I’ll be able to afford it unless some things change in D.C.,” he added.

Posted on Wednesday, November 23, 2011 3:46:05 PM by jdirt

In 2008, the NH Secretary of State and the Ballot Law Commission removed Presidential candidate Sal Mohammad because he was not a natural born citizen. Because President Obama is also not a natural born citizen, the NH legislature passed a law last year that required a statement that the candidate meets the qualifications under the Constitution to serve as President. Last Friday a hearing was conducted by the Ballot Law Commission for the complaint that Barack Obama is not a natural born citizen based on decided law in the US Supreme Court ruling Minor v Happersett and; documentary evidence that President Obama could not pass an e-verify check, the SSN he uses was issued in CT (SSA has now made the number assignments random so Americans can’t check them anymore) and failure of the SSNVS check. The complaint requested that Barack Obama should be removed from the ballot. The complaint was filed by Orly Taitz, esq and supported by NINE state representatives. The commission ruled that since Obama paid the $1,000 fee and he filled out the required form, his name could appear on the ballot.

What Does the GOP Really Want in 2012? by Karen Kwiatkowski

November 23, 2011 2 comments

EXCERPT

…..The GOP wants and needs four more years of Obamanation in order to continue its plan of corralling and branding intransigent and increasingly sophisticated state’s rights-asserting, small government freethinkers. But the GOP cowboys are long in the tooth, and their horses keep coming up lame.

Karen Kwiatkowski

The GOP establishment wants, and needs, more time to work the Republican herd. They’ll do this much as they did in 2008. Destroy electable candidates and run losing liberal nominees. Thus, we see the GOP leadership express great satisfaction with Romney and Perry, both big spending statists, while doing everything they can to destroy the reputations of the Republicans with more grass roots appeal, like Cain and Ron Paul. Cain’s crossover appeal to the neocon, progressive, and small government wings of the GOP was frightening – he might have actually won, and then try to change the status quo – and thus he had to be taken out. I doubt Cain would ever have attempted real change, but I’m not as paranoid as the GOP establishment.

Limbaugh’s goal was to “illustrate” what the reaction would be, compared to the scant attention given when GOP presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann was introduced on Jimmy Fallon’s Monday night NBC program to Fishbone’s “Lyin’ A** B****.”

“The U.S. Embassy continues to urge U.S. citizens in Syria to depart immediately while commercial transportation is available,” said a statement issued to the American community in Syria Wednesday and posted on the Embassy’s website. “The number of airlines serving Syria has decreased significantly since the summer, while many of those airlines remaining have reduced their number of flights.”

Van Jones offered a prediction Wednesday for those who have been watching the Occupy Wall Street movement: “You haven’t seen anything yet.”

The former Obama administration “green jobs czar” — an ardent supporter of the Occupy movement since its inception — said in an interview with CNN that the movement is ready to evolve into the areas of politics and policy-making, much like the Tea Party did in 2010.

“You’re going to see an evolution now as you go from protests, keep the protests, but now expand into politics,” Jones said. “And if you thought there was an earthquake in 2010 when the Tea Party moved into politics, wait until this 99 percent movement moves over into politics. You haven’t seen anything yet.”

Medvedev said time hasn’t run out for an agreement, but he accused the United States of failing to take into account Russian concerns.

His declaration, in a televised address, comes a year after he met with the heads of NATO states in Lisbon and said Russia was willing to consider joining in on missile defense, if it could be included as an equal partner.

As Canada Free Press (CFP) friend Anne Franklin warns, shopping til’ you drop this Black Friday may ensure the re-election of The Democratic Party next election.

Check the list of stores that will donate 1% to 15% of the purchase price of whatever you spend on Black Friday to the Texas Democratic Party.

If they’re doing it in Texas, they’re likely doing it in other states too.

Target, Home Depot, PetSmart, Sears, KMart, FTD are among the Dem cash supporters. But as Anne points out there are literally HUNDREDS of stories on this list.

You have to request to have the stores make the donation, but it is still shocking and shows how well organized the Dems are.

The “Great Leaders” Were Mass Murderers – Anthony Gregory – Mises Daily

Making the World Safe for Death and Destruction

World War I was the defining moment in the modern era, marking the death of monarchical Europe, the introduction of modern warfare to the global scene, the dawn of a frightening new system in war making and governance. For the United States, it was more transformative than any other event, other than perhaps Lincoln’s war or maybe World War II. It was an unspeakable tragedy, consuming almost 20 million lives and opening the door to the totalitarian takeover of Russia and later Germany. Nothing in history is more important to study, which is why it is particularly sad that in America’s government schools it tends to be poorly taught or deemphasized in comparison to its more popular sequel.

Raico calls World War I “The Turning Point” in the first chapter of his book. At just 52 pages, this chapter is the best World War I summary of its length I have read. For everyone very familiar with the war, this chapter is still worth reviewing, with many rich footnotes, containing nuggets that are bound to be new for almost anyone.

Katehi said, “The group was reminded that while the university provides an environment for students to participate in rallies and express their concerns and frustrations through different forums, university policy does not allow such encampments on university grounds.”

NWV News — Oregon Sheriff Gil Gilbertson Continues Stand Against U.S. Forest Service

November 23, 2011 2 comments

Josephine County, Ore. — Two months ago Gil Gilbertson, the sheriff of this rural county in southern Oregon, drafted a 10-page report exploring the origins and extent of federal power within a state and emailed his findings to various parties, asking for comment.

Since the report was in rough-draft form he was somewhat surprised that it went viral, but it shows there are a lot of people hungry for information about how much power (particularly law-enforcement power) the federal government actually wields within a state, where that power comes from, and the limits to that power.

Gilbertson continued his research and recently completed a 13-page revised and updated version, retitled: Unraveling Federal Jurisdiction within a State. It is highly footnoted with references to statutes and court decisions.

This a “must read” for anyone concerned about infringements against the 10th Amendment and federal encroachments in general – like road closures, Wild Lands and Monument designations, mining and other resource uses. In other words, this is for anyone and everybody with an interest – no matter how casual — in accessing the public lands, either as a “resource user” (a rancher or miner) or simply a casual vacationer who enjoys weekend camping.

The Doomsday Project and Deep Events: JFK, Watergate, Iran-Contra, and 9/11

November 23, 2011 Leave a comment

“I know the capacity that is there to make tyranny total in America, and we must see to it that this agency [the National Security Agency] and all agencies that possess this technology operate within the law and under proper supervision, so that we never cross over that abyss. That is the abyss from which there is no return.”

– Senator Frank Church (1975)

I would like to discuss four major and badly understood events – the John F. Kennedy assassination, Watergate, Iran-Contra, and 9/11. I will analyze these deep events as part of a deeper political process linking them, a process that has helped build up repressive power in America at the expense of democracy.

In recent years I have been talking about a dark force behind these events — a force which, for want of a better term, I have clumsily called a “deep state,” operating both within and outside the public state. Today for the first time I want to identify part of that dark force, a part which has operated for five decades or more at the edge of the public state. This part of the dark force has a name not invented by me: the Doomsday Project, the Pentagon’s name for the emergency planning “to keep the White House and Pentagon running during and after a nuclear war or some other major crisis.”1

My point is a simple and important one: to show that the Doomsday Project of the 1980s, and the earlier emergency planning that developed into it, have played a role in the background of all the deep events I shall discuss.

More significantly, it has been a factor behind all three of the disturbing events that now threaten American democracy. The first of these three is what has been called the conversion of our economy into a plutonomy – with the increasing separation of America into two classes, into the haves and the have-nots, the one percent and the 99 percent. The second is America’s increasing militarization, and above all its inclination, which has become more and more routine and predictable, to wage or provoke wars in remote regions of the globe. It is clear that the operations of this American war machine have served the one percent.2

BELLEVUE, WA –(Ammoland.com)- A federal judge has granted a preliminary injunction against enforcement by the City of Omaha, NE of an ordinance that prohibits legal non-citizens from registering handguns in the city, in a case brought by the Second Amendment Foundation, the Nebraska Firearms Owners Association and Armando Pliego Gonzalez.

The order was granted by U.S. District Judge Joseph Bataillon while the court considers whether the registration ban for legal immigrants is unconstitutional under the Second Amendment.

Support Your Local Police State by William Norman Grigg

“Which is better – to be ruled by one tyrant three thousand miles away, or by three thousand tyrants not a mile away?” –

~ Attributed to Boston physician Mather Byles, 1770.

“Do you see this soldier in this checkpoint?” Iraqi Wael al-Khafaji asked a Reuters reporter, pointing to a spot just a few feet from his Baghdad barbershop. “He can do whatever he wants to me right now and I can’t say a word. Is this democracy?”

Before the U.S. invasion, this businessman – like millions of other Iraqis – was ruled by a distant dictator who had little direct influence on his life. Today, everything he does takes place under the shadow cast by armed men who have given themselves permission to brutalize or kill anybody who refuses to obey them.

We know why you joined the force. You wanted to protect the weak and the innocent from the strong and vicious. You desired a society where justice is done, the guilty punished. You abhor the use of violence against women and children. You wanted to stand for good, protect those who need protection. Are you doing this now?

Ron Paul: Israel can take care of itself

Setting himself far apart from his Republican colleagues, Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul on Tuesday night suggested that the U.S. should have less involvement in Israel’s affairs.

“I think they’re quite capable of taking care of themselves,” he said.

The statement came in response to a question in a Tuesday night debate about whether the GOP candidates would, as president, support Israel in an attack against Iran.
