The End of the World Powers

Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog

60 years ago an uprising in the Ukraine would have been met with machine guns fired from behind the armor of Communist ideology. With the fall of the USSR, Russia didn’t have much of an ideology to deploy against Ukrainian nationalism. It accused the protesters of being fascists, an accusation with some truth to it, but not one that anyone will take seriously coming from another fascist regime.

If there is hope, you are it. You are motivated to find truth. You can think outside the box. You can see through propaganda. You are the remnant with the common sense that once was a common American virtue. You come to this site, because you get explanations that are not agenda-driven, that are not BS, that are not right-wing or left-wing, conservative or liberal, Republican or Democrat.

More People Sacrificed to Destructive Thinking by Butler Shaffer ~ (“How convenient for our political overseers: there has been another mass-shooting …Taking the advice of the neo-Machiavellian Rahm Emanuel – that “a crisis is a terrible thing to waste” – the victims in Connecticut will join those in the Oregon shopping mall, Columbine and Aurora, Colorado, and elsewhere, to be exploited on behalf of disarming Americans.”)

How convenient for our political overseers: there has been another mass-shooting – this time at a Connecticut grade-school – in which many adults and young children were murdered. Members of the mainstream media, politicians, and other government officials are being turned loose to share their lack of critical thinking with a public conditioned to await their direction.

With the kind of frenzy exhibited by a monkey that has been bitten by a scorpion, establishment sock-puppets quickly respond with proposals to further enhance state power while, at the same time, shrinking individual liberty. Taking the advice of the neo-Machiavellian Rahm Emanuel – that “a crisis is a terrible thing to waste” – the victims in Connecticut will join those in the Oregon shopping mall, Columbine and Aurora, Colorado, and elsewhere, to be exploited on behalf of disarming Americans.

In June 2009, Obama orchestrated Honduran President Manuel Zelaya’s ouster. A US supported fascist despot replaced him.

For good reason, Honduras is called the murder capital of the world. Independent journalists are killed. So are protesters for democratic change.

The Newest War – Disinformation, Lies and Censorship as “Activism” | Veterans Today

April 26, 2012 Leave a comment

…by Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

About an hour ago, I did an interview on Press TV saying I wanted Bradley Manning released.

I also pointed out that, though we found Julian Assange to be working with Israeli intelligence, yes, we know, using those two words together is, in itself, humor, Manning should be released.

Within an hour, Blankfoot, a curious character, had contacted one of our managing editors. He was incensed that I would “out” Assange, though Zbigniew Brzezinski did it in 2010 and Assange had been “busted” as an Israeli fraud dozens of times.

When it was Blankfoot, I knew I had drawn blood, that Assange had been hiding behind the suffering of Bradley Manning, forwarding Israel’s war on the United States. I learned nothing new about Blankfoot, he had made himself more than obvious long ago. Actually, I had thought he was dead.

Anyway, from an earlier article on VT:

Wikileaks reveals Democrat 2008 election crimes

March 5, 2012 Leave a comment

…..Wikileaks last week began disclosing the emails obtained by WikiLeaks and hacktivist group Anonymous that expose the dirty dealings and election tampering done by Democratic Party operatives and the Obama campaign.

Stratfor, under the leadership of founder and Chief Executive George Friedman, counts Fortune 500 corporations and federal government agencies and the military among its subscribers. In a statement, Stratfor said it had built “good sources” in many countries, “as any publisher of global geopolitical analysis would do.”

In a published report, a second Wikileaks email indicated that 2008 Republican presidential candidate John McCain decided not to pursue legal action against the Democrats for engaging in voter fraud, believing that to do so would have thrown the country into civil unrest, and thus let the…..

Cliff Kincaid — Ron Paul Under Fire for Praising Accused Traitor

December 29, 2011 2 comments

Fox News is the latest news organization to pick up on the revelation, first reported by AIM, that Ron Paul had praised WikiLeaks source Bradley Manning as a hero and patriot. Directly referring to WikiLeaks and Army soldier Bradley Manning being held in detention, Paul said, “Should he be locked up in prison or should we see him as a political hero? Maybe he is a true patriot—who reveals what’s going on in government.” The comment drew strong applause from Paul supporters.

Video of the event, officially posted by Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty organization, also shows the Republican presidential candidate, now rising or perhaps leading in the polls in Iowa, attacking the CIA and its treatment of terrorists.

Doing Foreign Policy by Justin Raimondo ~ “.The internet, too, you’ll recall, was supposed to liberate us all from the confines of government control”

December 12, 2011 1 comment

…..The internet, too, you’ll recall, was supposed to liberate us all from the confines of government control, a theory that didn’t work out so well for Julian Assange. Indeed, Assange’s persecution is one of many post-9/11 realities confirming Hadar’s contention “that the Political Man remained alive and well, including in these United States. Notwithstanding the end of the Cold War, fresh rationales emerged for perpetuating our warfare state – political Islam, a resurgent Russia, a rising China, climate change, humanitarian disasters.”

That these habitués of the Beltway naively discounted the persistence of Political Man, and innocently repeated the error of 19th century classical liberals who saw the progress of mankind toward liberty as inevitable and irrevocable, is hard to believe. And, indeed, Hadar does more than hint that “libertarian” support for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan – and the “color revolutions” in the former Soviet republics – was very far from an innocent error. The anti-interventionist libertarian critique of these wars, he writes,

“Received very little attention in the first stages of the military response to 9/11 and during the invasion of Iraq [and this] could be explained by the disproportionate influence of pro-war libertarians operating from think tanks and magazines affiliated with the movement. Brink Lindsey, for example, then with the Cato Institute, called for invading Iraq in a January 2003 Reason online debate, suggesting among other things that regime change “offers the opportunity to attack radical Islamism at its roots: the dismal prevalence of political repression and economic stagnation throughout the Muslim world” and that “the establishment of a reasonably liberal and democratic Iraq could serve as a model for positive change throughout the region.”

How the US government secretly reads your email

October 11, 2011 Leave a comment

Secret orders forcing Google and Sonic to release a WikiLeaks volunteer’s email reveal the scale of US government snooping. Somewhere, a US government official is reading through a list of those who sent or received an email from Jacob Appelbaum, a 28-year-old computer science researcher at the University of Washington who volunteered for WikiLeaks. …

Appelbaum is a spokesman for Tor, a free internet anonymising software that helps people defend themselves against internet surveillance. He’s spent five years teaching activists around the world how to install and use the service to avoid being monitored by repressive governments. It’s exactly the sort of technology Secretary of State Hilary Clinton praised in her famous “Internet Freedom” speech in January 2010, when she promised US government support for the designers of technology that circumvented blocks or firewalls. Now, Appelbaum finds himself a target of his own government as a result of his friendship with Julian Assange and the fact WikiLeaks used the Tor software.

as the law stands, government officials don’t need a search warrant to access our digital data. Searching someone’s home requires a warrant that can only be obtained by proving probable cause, but digital searches require no such burden of proof. Instead, officials essentially “self-certify” …

Most people are not aware of the ease with which governments – free, open and so-called democratic – can access and peruse our private communications…

The fourth amendment of the US Constitution should protect against unwarranted search and seizure. Its inclusion in the Bill of Rights was a result of colonialists’ anger at abuse suffered at the hands of British officials using writs of assistance

“the technological age we now live in, it is NOT designed for your enlightenment, but rather for your enslavement”

March 20, 2011 2 comments

Now it is vital for the reader to understand one of the most fundamental facts about the technological age we now live in, it is NOT designed for your enlightenment, but rather for your enslavement, and as noted by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange this past week when he warned about the Internet, he calls the world’s “greatest spying machine”:

It is not a technology that favours freedom of speech, it is not a technology that favours human rights, rather it is a technology that can be used to set up a totalitarian spying regime, the likes of which we have never seen.” [Note: Since the release of our report “They Are Going To Come For You Why Are You Helping Them?” , we have been astounded by the numbers of Americans who still aren’t aware that their cell phones are in all actuality spying devices being listened into and tracked by their government even when turned off.]Standing between the American people, and the seemingly unstoppable power of their elite classes bent on their destruction, are but a few of us left still shouting warnings to those able, and willing, to listen, but we grow fewer by the day because those we seek to help the most have no idea how much danger they truly are in.

Mainstream Press Journalism of Appeasement, Corruption, Smoke and Mirrors…

Mainstream Press Journalism of Appeasement, Corruption, Smoke and Mirrors

by David DeGraw
Market Oracle

Here’s a brief summation of my recent reporting: If we continue to let our politicians and wealthy members of society live in comfort, free from the consequences of their actions, we are complicit in our own demise.

Our country is so overrun with corruption, we cannot remain passive and expect things to get any better.

The economy is propped up by smoke and mirrors and will inevitably collapse. Without immediately breaking up the banks and holding the thieves accountable, we will continue on our downward spiral with increasingly severe and devastating consequences.

These are extremely unpleasant truths that we are now forced to confront. We have to act now. If you are not calling for revolution or organizing, you are either unaware of what’s happening around you, horribly naïve or a fascist sympathizer.

In response to statements like those above, I’ve been exchanging emails with colleagues (journalists and news editors) who have become “uncomfortable” with my reporting style and been saying some variation of the following: “You’re being too radical. This is too extreme for us to publish.”

While I appreciate their opinions, I want to make something 100% clear. I am fully aware that these words are harsh, and may turn off some people. However, in extreme times, telling the truth will make you sound extreme. Ultimately, I don’t mind if you think I sound “too extreme,” I don’t care if I make people “uncomfortable,” or if, in your opinion, I’ve become “too radical.” Try telling that to the 52 million Americans who are now living in poverty. Tell that to the millions of American families who have lost their homes and jobs. Tell that to the 59 million people who can’t afford health insurance. Tell that to the overwhelming majority of the population who are stressed out, living paycheck to paycheck, buried in debt they will never get out of and desperately struggling to make ends meet.

G. Gordon Liddy: WikiLeaks chief deserves to be on ‘kill list’

December 2, 2010 Leave a comment

WND ExclusiveG. Gordon Liddy:

WikiLeaks chief deserves to be on ‘kill list’Former White House adviser: ‘We’re not playing games here’

Posted: December 01, 20109:05 pm EasternBy Drew Zahn© 2010 WorldNetDailyLONDON, ENGLAND – JULY 26:

Julian Assange of the WikiLeaks website speaks to reporters at The Front Line Club on July 26, 2010 in London, England. The WikiLeaks website has published 90,000 secret US Military records.

The Guardian and The New York Times newspapers and the German Magazine Der Spiegel have also published details today. Photo by Peter Macdiarmid/Getty ImagesSecretary of State Hillary Clinton says his action “puts people’s lives in danger,” and U.S. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., has called for his website to be declared a foreign terrorist organization, but radio host and former White House leaks-stuffer G. Gordon Liddy has a more severe step in mind for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange: kill him.”Julian Assange is a severe national security threat to the U.S., and that then leads to what to do about it,” Liddy told WND.

“This fellow Anwar al-Awlaki – a joint U.S. citizen hiding out in Yemen – is on a ‘kill list’ [for inciting terrorism against the U.S.]. Mr. Assange should be put on the same list.””I’m not surprised that G. Gordon Liddy wants Julian Assange killed,” commentator Bill Press told WND. “He admits he once tried to figure out how to kill journalist Jack Anderson. Maybe I’m old-fashioned, but I think people should have to commit a crime and be convicted before getting the death penalty. And, so far, Assange has done neither. The best treatment for Julian Assange is to ignore him – and focus on who’s leaking to him.”

  War Should Be an Election Issue         :      Information Clearing House: ICH

October 28, 2010 Leave a comment

By Amy GoodmanOctober 27, 2010 “Truthdig” — Just days away from crucial midterm elections, WikiLeaks, the whistle-blower website, unveiled the largest classified military leak in history. Almost 400,000 secret Pentagon documents relating to the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq were made available online. The documents, in excruciating detail, portray the daily torrent of violence, murder, rape and torture to which Iraqis have been subjected since George W. Bush declared “Mission Accomplished.”

The WikiLeaks release, dubbed “The Iraq War Logs,” has been topping the headlines in Europe. But in the U.S., it barely warranted a mention on the agenda-setting Sunday talk shows.First, the documents themselves. I spoke with Julian Assange, the founder and editor in chief of WikiLeaks.org. He explained: “These documents cover the periods of 2004 to the beginning of 2010. It is the most accurate description of a war to have ever been released … each casualty, where it happened, when it happened and who was involved, according to internal U.S. military reporting.”David Leigh, investigations editor at the Guardian of London, told me the leak “represents the raw material of history … what the unvarnished version does is confirm what many of us feared and what many journalists have attempted to report over the years, that Iraq became a bloodbath, a real bloodbath of unnecessary killings, of civilian slaughter, of torture and of people being beaten to death.”The reports, in bland bureaucratic language and rife with military jargon, are grisly in detail. Go to the website and search the hundreds of thousands of records.

Words like “rape,” “murder,” “execution,” “kidnapping” and “decapitation” return anywhere from hundreds to thousands of reports, documenting not only the scale and regularity of the violence, but, ultimately, a new total for civilian deaths in Iraq.The British-based Iraq Body Count, which maintains a carefully researched database on just the documented deaths in Iraq, estimates that the Iraq War Logs document an additional 15,000 heretofore unrecorded civilian deaths, bringing the total, from when the invasion began, to more than 150,000 deaths, 80 percent of which are civilian.

Sotomayor Says Court May Rule to Limit First Amendment in Response to Wikileaks

August 29, 2010 Leave a comment

Following the release of over 90,000 documents by Wikileaks in July, the Pentagon found no evidence that the disclosure harmed U.S. national security or endangered American troops in the field. The Pentagon review team consists of military intelligence analysts, lawyers and others working for the Joint Chiefs of Staffs and other elements of the Defense Department.

The Obama administration and certain members of Congress, however, have portrayed the release as a dire threat to national security. Obama asked Britain, Germany, Australia, and other allies to consider criminal charges against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said the organization is guilty of “moral culpability” in the murder of U.S. soldiers. The ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee, Rep. Peter King, said the release of documents violates espionage laws and amounts to treason.

The FBI is investigating and the Justice Department said it was looking into pursuing criminal charges in the case. Rep. Mike Rogers, a Michigan Republican, has demanded the death penalty for SPC Bradley Manning, the man arrested and charged with providing the documents to Wikileaks.
