After an argument about a leave denied, Specialist Ivan Lopez pulled out a .45-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun and began a shooting spree at Fort Hood, America’s biggest stateside base, that left three soldiers dead and 16 wounded. When he did so, he also pulled America’s fading wars out of the closet.
This time, a Fort Hood mass killing, the second in four and a half years, was committed by a man who was neither a religious nor a political “extremist.” He seems to have been merely one of America’s injured and troubled veterans who now number in the hundreds of thousands.

The Common Sense Show
Many talk about the fact that Americans have an estimated 300 million privately owned hand guns as the reason why no foreign power, or even our government, can subjugate the people. I am compelled to disagree. If our government ever became abusive enough that the people felt the need to rebel, there is a new generation of super weapons being developed which would doom any rebellion.

Part 1: How Americans lost their country like having the rug of their republic pulled right out from under them.

TO THE MARINE CORPS: LET SGT. HUTCHINS GO

I can’t believe I’m writing these words: Marine Sgt. Lawrence Hutchins III is going on trial – again.
Twice, Hutchins’ conviction by a military court martial for unpremeditated murder in Iraq has been overturned due to factors precluding a fair trial. That means that twice, following Hutchins’ initial conviction in 2007, he has been released from the brig a free man.
After his conviction was overturned the first time, there were eight months of freedom in 2010. Then, on the day his wife Reyna found out she was pregnant with their second child, Hutchins, a third-generation Marine, returned to prison. Last summer, the military’s highest appeals court overturned his conviction a second time. For the past six months, Hutchins has been living with Reyna and their two children, Kylie, 8, and Aidan, 2, while teaching marksmanship at Camp Pendleton. A new baby is on the way. Now, he – and they – must prepare for a new trial, his third. Why?
The following excerpt is from “Towards a World War III Scenario: The Dangers of Nuclear War“, the latest title by best-selling author Michel Chossudovsky:
The US has embarked on a military adventure, “a long war”, which threatens the future of humanity. US-NATO weapons of mass destruction are portrayed as instruments of peace. Mini-nukes are said to be “harmless to the surrounding civilian population”. Pre-emptive nuclear war is portrayed as a “humanitarian undertaking”.
While one can conceptualize the loss of life and destruction resulting from present-day wars including Iraq and Afghanistan, it is impossible to fully comprehend the devastation which might result from a Third World War, using “new technologies” and advanced weapons, until it occurs and becomes a reality.

That was Gates’ mistake. He signed on for the two-war death watch.
Today, Al Qaeda occupies Fallujah. Yet one-third of America’s 4,500 troops who died in Iraq, died to capture Fallujah. But there is this difference: Al Qaeda had no presence in Iraq when Bush sent troops to invade in 2003. Saddam Hussein had the handful of Al Qaeda members under control.

In 2008, authors David Horowitz and Ben Johnson released their book, “Party of Defeat.” It chronicled the Democratic Party’s duplicitous efforts regarding its initial support for the Bush administration’s prosecution of the war in Iraq, followed by their attempts to undermine it—for nothing more than crass political considerations. In a his new book, “Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War,” former defense secretary Robert M. Gates, who served in both the Bush and Obama administrations, delivers a devastating confirmation of Horowitz’s and Johnson’s arguments.

I have a friend who fought in Fallujah.
He is boisterous and confident and full of life. He has the can-do spirit that defines himself and all who have worn the blue cord of the Army Infantry.
But yesterday he was broken.
As he talked about the Iraq war, and specifically the fight for Fallujah, there was a sadness that doesn’t come out in the speeches and books.
There wasn’t the never-say-die confidence of a veteran non-commissioned officer, there was instead the dazed uncertainty of a man who looks back and wonders what the hell it was all about.

“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” ~ Barack Hussein Obama
The US military is handing over leftover equipment from the Iraq conflict to police under a military surplus program. Civil liberties groups have criticized the initiative as unnecessary and a move toward the militarization of American law enforcement.
(Before It\’s News)
Many people have noticed that several of the local police officers, particularly the younger ones are more gruff, rude and even abusive as compared to the past.
Many veteran officers attribute the shift towards DHS’ training of local police which focuses on teaching the police that the public is their enemy as opposed to the traditional view that teaches that the local population and the police are partners in keeping the community safe.
Whatever happened to the friendly neighborhood cop who walked a beat, was well-known and respected by the local residents and was seen as the protector of the neighborhood? Far too often, that cop has been replaced by thugs wearing camouflage, bank robber type black ski masks who are armed with automatic weapons and sometimes even break down the doors of people who are innocent.
A Long-Term Trend Towards the Militarization of the Local Police
Americans have long maintained that a man’s home is his castle and that he has the right to stand his ground in defending his property from dangerous interlopers.
Unfortunately, the right to defend one’s own home may be disappearing. America has become SWAT team happy. America has seen a disturbing trend towards militarization of its local civilian law enforcement, along with a dramatic and very disturbing rise in the use of paramilitary police units being used for routine police work. The most common use of SWAT teams today is to serve narcotics warrants, usually with forced, unannounced entry into the home. However, anyone can be SWAT-teamed, even those who default on their student loans have been SWAT-teamed.
Since 9/11, and the subsequent militarization of the police by the Department of Homeland Security, about 5,000 Americans have been killed by US police officers. The civilian death rate is nearly equal to the number of US soldiers killed in Iraq. In fact, you are 8 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a terrorist.

Reports are that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is engaged in a massive, covert military buildup.
An article in the Associated Press in February confirmed an open purchase order by DHS for 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition. According to an op-ed in Forbes, that’s enough to sustain an Iraq-sized war for over twenty years. DHS has also acquired heavily armored tanks, which have been seen roaming the streets.

The administration’s planned strike on Syria is increasingly opposed by many in a U.S. military coping with the scars of two long wars, a rapidly shrinking budget and soldiers saying we’re “tired, stretched thin and broke.”That sentiment was expressed by an active-duty soldier with a rank of Sergeant First Class in an email to Rep. Justin Amash.
The Michigan Republican has been receiving, compiling and tweeting emails from current and former service members now being asked to commit to an ill-defined mission with an unclear goal in support of rebels mostly linked to al-Qaida and other unfriendly interests.”The message I consistently hear: Please vote no on military action against Syria,” Amash tweeted.
by Johnny Punish Over the last two days, we have watched a new reality show on TV featuring every clown in the closet. It was better than that ole Love Boat back in the 80s when every has-been-2-bit actor would show up to get 15 seconds of face time.
Personally, I love the ATTACK SYRIA TV SHOW!U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was masterful as the protagonist. His performance Academy Award quality.Designed for the U.S. public consumption, broadcasted worldwide, and brought to you by the NWO, the production was first rate. It even had the lovely “red hand” protestors who made today’s testimony by Kerry even more entertaining.
Must See TV!Clearly, the NWO is on!Red Hand Protesters at today’s Hearing on Attacking Iraq! Opps! I mean SyriaRed Hand Protesters at today’s Hearing on Attacking Iraq! Opps! I mean SyriaThe TV show program designed to move the polls from negative to neutral is working slowly as Americans get dragged into the fray begrudgingly gritting their teeth to raise that freedom flag like we are the only ones who can save the world even though they know it’s bullshit.
But here we go!Now, we’re not there yet so don’t get all hot and bothered! The actors still have 1 or 2 more weeks to get the Sheeple off their isolationist couches and back to the field of battle. So hold on to your remotes people cause this TV show has more episodes to come and who knows what will happen. I am thinking there might a cliffhanger JR Ewing style…like who shot Assad?Now even though the chemical weapons sales pitch does not pass the validity test, I don’t think they care do you?
The Robert Taft Republicans Return… “At town hall meetings in their districts, the congressman reports, House Republicans are hearing “an isolationist message.” It’s not America’s war.

The Robert Taft Republicans Return – Isolationism has never served the interests of America, or the GOP.
‘We’ll be lucky to get 80 Republicans out of 230.” That’s an astute GOP congressman’s best guess for how his caucus now stands on the vote to authorize military force against Syria.
“It is a complete humiliation for the Obama administration,” Krauthammer said on Fox News. “Forget about the merits of what Obama wants to do which I think it’s a bad idea. But let’s assume it’s a good idea. This involves the elementary conduct of international diplomacy, trying to get some allies aboard so you don’t act unilaterally.
“So who’s the main ally in the world who’s been with us in every trench for the last 100 years? The British. And now the British have voted against us,” Krauthammer continued. “The other supposed ally was the French, President Hollande, and now he’s saying we got to wait for the report from the U.N. inspectors which will be early next week.”
(Col Sellin) ~ How to take down the Obama Administration and restore the Constitution by Lawrence Sellin
In military operations, the enemy’s “center of gravity” is defined in JP 1-02 as “the source of power that provides moral or physical strength, freedom of action, or will to act.” It can also be a source of weakness and provide a point of attack.
Obama is the center of gravity for a corrupt political system. His center of gravity is transparency or, in this case, the lack thereof.
Paraphrasing “Counterinsurgency” (FM 3-24), the ability to generate and sustain popular support, or at least acquiescence and tolerance, has been the sine qua non of Obama’s political survival. Support or tolerance is often generated using intimidation and coercion of the populace. In these cases, even if people do not favor Obama, they are forced to tolerate him or provide support.

President Barack Obama has resurrected ‘Wanted Dead or Alive’ posters in his astroturfed fight against al Qaeda. But rather than displaying them on the walls down at the local post office, this ‘Wanted Dead or Alive’ poster is boldly displayed on the website of the U.S. State Department.
The ‘Wanted Dead or Alive’ poster appeared on the State Dept. website on the very day the Obamas departed for their Martha’s Vineyard holiday, but not to worry buzz about Bo flying on is own separate plane was destined to pick up the slack.

There is only one way to stop Hillary Clinton
By Lawrence Sellin
If current political trends continue, there are two inescapable outcomes: Hillary Clinton will be elected President in 2016 and, by the end of her eight years in office, the United States will no longer exist.
The Democrat electoral juggernaut cannot be stopped for two reasons.
First, the Democrats seem to have perfected the art of voter fraud and it may now be considered an integral component of their national campaign strategy. The results of the 2012 election suggest that massive voter fraud is not required. Selective alteration of the count in specific precincts of large swing states such as Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida would be enough. That might help explain why Democrats, especially Hillary Clinton are vehemently opposed to voter ID requirements.
In parallel, the mainstream media will censor or manipulate the news in order to promote Hillary’s political ambitions, even at the expense of their own journalistic integrity and the well-being of the country.

Not long after I left Afghanistan in September 2010, a young Lieutenant and a graduate of the US Military Academy at West Point wrote to me concerned that the Army has yet to grasp all of the elements of leadership needed for the challenges of the 21st century. She wrote:
“I think that there are serious problems with the culture of Army leadership: close-mindedness, careerism, an aversion to innovation or creativity born of the fallacy that everything can fit into a step-by-step procedure, and a task-oriented mindset that creates an atmosphere of anti-intellectualism…and not only those who can think, but those who possess the moral courage to stand up for the hard truths that their bosses are unwilling to accept. I think this is going to be especially important as we transition away from Iraq and Afghanistan and attempt to prepare for unknown future conflicts.”

The presidency insists on complete devotion and humble submission to its dictates, even while its steals the products of our labor and drives us into economic ruin.

Col David Hackworth Ret Calls Rumsfeld An ‘Asshole’ The War According To David Hackworth… “”Pistols suck,” wrote one soldier. “Bring and use every weapon. Shotguns are great at close ranges.” At a time when soldiers have been disciplined for griping to the media, Hackworth is providing a fascinating outlet for what they’re really experiencing. Among the more evocative messages:”
…..Retired U.S. Army Col. David Hackworth is a cocky American military commander who for half a century was at the front lines of the Army’s most important battles. Most recently, though, Hackworth has been at the front lines of a domestic war: the debate over U.S. military strategy in Iraq, and whether the Bush administration planned well enough to achieve a decisive military victory and keep the postwar peace.
Hackworth was everywhere on cable television during the first days of the war, when early military setbacks convinced him and other retired military leaders that the administration, whose backers sold the conflict as a “cakewalk,” hadn’t sent enough troops to quell Iraqi resistance. He wrote a widely quoted column headlined “Stuck in the Quicksand” in early April — just as the tide seemed to turn and the pace of victory picked up again.

The preamble to the Constitution states that one of the reasons it was ordained and established was to help provide for the common defense. Of the eighteen paragraphs in article I, section 8, of the Constitution, six of them relate in some way to the war, the military, or the militia.
The budgets passed earlier this year by the Republican-controlled House and Democratic-controlled Senate each called for spending about $6 trillion on national defense over the next ten years. This is even though, according to Treasury Department data, “Over the past ten fiscal years, inflation-adjusted Defense Department spending has increased by approximately 54 percent.”

(Every effort was made to censor this story.)
It is a mistake to look on what has become endless wars, first centering in the Middle East, as struggles over religion, political theories, sectarian struggles or post-colonial realignments. Each hypothesis fails.
Increasingly, intelligence analysts are agreeing on one thing, there is clear evidence of “game theory/chaos theory” with one clear purpose, to reduce populations in specific areas where key resources are in abundance.
The first hard evidence hit with the discoveries of Dr. Chris Busby, researching the effects of depleted uranium use in the Fallujah region of Iraq. It took several years to get access to the area. There was a reason.
How did it ever come down to abandoning peace keeping and accepting law enforcement by any means? Even the New York Times expresses alarm in, When the Police Go Military.
“The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 generally bars the military from law enforcement activities within the United States. But today, some local and city police forces have rendered the law rather moot. They have tanks – yes, tanks, often from military surplus, for use in hostage situations or drug raids – not to mention the sort of equipment and training one would need to deter a Mumbai-style guerrilla assault.”

In order to deliver on the Fundamental Transformation of America, President Barack Obama must first smash to smithereens the image of America as World Superpower.
That’s why he’s been spending so much of his time gutting the military.
Parachuted into power by archenemies of the USA, Obama holds a special disdain for American military forces, going so far as to replace them with his own private one. The bodies of approximately 1,541 soldiers were returned home under flag-draped coffins on Obama’s watch. That’s in part because Obama has continued to send American troops into theaters of war booby-trapped by lax rules of engagement where the only tragic outcome is their own maiming and death.
The image of the American soldier as sentinel has long been cherished world wide.
By gutting the military, Obama achieves his coveted, single-minded goal of shredding America’s long standing image as World Superpower.

There hasn’t been a terrorist attack on U.S.soil since 9/11, and Al-Qaeda is on the run in Iraq — and yet the terrorist threat is far from over.

While the stealth jihadists may never attain this goal, they are already eroding our freedoms as they demand ever more accommodation of Islamic principles and practices — and politically correct public officials are only too happy to oblige.
The rise and fall of a military blogger….. “They want sheep. … If I can’t be honest and open, I won’t write at all.”… ~ “(Gunny G Note: Same Soldier, “Rudely Displaying Rifle…” | )Army Times | armytimes.com
Master Sgt. C.J. Grisham is not the type to shy away from a fight.
Where the average life expectancy of a blog is said to be less than three months, Grisham’s has survived for six years.But he says he has had enough.”Blogging is no longer worth the trouble,” Grisham recently wrote on his blog, A Soldier’s Perspective, under the headline “ASP Closed for Business.”
Assigned to a military intelligence company at Redstone Arsenal, Ala., Grisham’s in-your-face opinions have won him a loyal following but also earned the scorn of his superiors, who contend he violated military limits about what troops can say on certain topics.
Democrat storm troopers find Gadsden flag “offensive” order veterans: take it down and hand it over « Coach is Right
By Kevin “Coach” Collins
Democrats love to flex their political muscles in the faces of anyone, but they take special pleasure in rubbing the noses of conservatives in the dirt. They are nasty lowlifes after all.
Recently the Democrats of the City Council of New Rochelle New York, a Big Apple bedroom community, decided that the United Veterans Memorial & Patriotic Association could not fly a Gadsden flag (known more widely as the “Don’t Tread On Me” flag) in front of the town’s armory. One of the five skunks who voted to take this action cried that the flag which is a symbol of pride to actual patriotic Americans was “offensive” to him.
David Koresh’s Revenge: Waco and 20 Years of State Terror by Anthony Gregory… “Twenty years ago, Waco showed Americans the truth about law enforcement, the U.S. government, and the state itself”
…..About once a day police kill an American, but it’s often a criminal and no one cares, or at least a marginalized person like the homeless Kelly Thomas, beaten in July 2011 by five officers in Southern California, dying of complications five days later.
Or they are veterans like Jose Guerena, at whom Tuscon police fired 71 rounds in the middle of the night in May 2011 – innocent of any crime, just in his own house at the wrong time. The state saves most of its killing for abroad, where killing is its very policy.
And now, thanks to the war on terror, Obama calls America his battlefield and the world his jurisdiction. He has made it official doctrine that the president can order anyone’s death unilaterally.
During the Iran-Contra hearings of 1987, Senator Daniel Inouye of Hawaii, a decorated World War II veteran and hero, told Lt. Col. Oliver North that North was breaking his oath when he blindly followed the commands of Ronald Reagan. As Inouye stated, “The uniform code makes it abundantly clear that it must be the Lawful orders of a superior officer. In fact it says, ‘Members of the military have an obligation to disobey unlawful orders.’
This principle was considered so important that we-we, the government of the United States, proposed that it be internationally applied in the Nuremberg trials.” (Bill Moyers, “The Secret Government”, Seven Locks Press; also in the PBS 1987 documentary, “The Secret Government: The Constitution in Crisis”)
Senator Inouye was referring to the Nuremberg trials in the post WW II era, when the U.S. tried Nazi war criminals and did not allow them to use the reason or excuse that they were only “following orders” as a defense for their war crimes which resulted in the deaths of millions of innocent men, women, and children. “In 1953, the Department of Defense adopted the principles of the Nuremberg Code as official policy” of the United States.

Gregory Schaffer said after his tour of duty in the Marines he wanted to go home and fly a flag in his yard.
But a complaint from an anonymous neighbor got Schaffer in some hot water.
